When I pre-ordered this book earlier this year, I didn’t know how much I’d be in need of a good laugh when it finally was released in September. 6 months into lockdown/weird corona times and this book arrived in a week where I was feeling a bit down in the dumps. It proved to be just what I thought it would be, the perfect tonic.
If you’ve not listened to Chris and Rosie’s podcast, first of all, you’re missing out – go start from the beginning and don’t stop until you’ve caught up.
This book takes a very familiar format to the podcast, with Chris and Rosie’s writing in different fonts (genius!) so that you can tell who is talking, and the back and forth banter that we’re so used to.
As I was reading, I was reading it in their voices, and it genuinely felt like sitting down and having a chat with friends.
A very honest talk about dating, relationships and marriage, I thought it was brill – with both of them (as on the podcast) not afraid to open up.
If I had to pick one minor thing as a negative, the book seemed to end very abruptly. I was really enjoying the chapter and then I turned the page and it was finished. I had kind of expected a closing chapter to wrap it up or at least an acknowledgements page or something, but perhaps I was just being greedy and wanted more!!
I really hope Chris and Rosie write a follow up, I could listen to them/read them all day long.
