Are we nearly there yet by Lucy Vine #BookReview

What they say: Alice is turning thirty and is stuck in a rut. Her friends are all coupling up and settling down, while she’s still working as a temp, trying (and failing) not to shag her terrible ex, getting thrown out of clubs, and accidentally sexting her boss…

She decides to throw caution to the wind and jets off on a round-the-world adventure to #FindTheFun and find herself. Of course, she’s no more likely to find the answer to true happiness on the beach in Thailand than she is at the electric beach in Tooting, but at least in Thailand there’s paddleboard yoga.

Can Alice find happiness on her travels? Or is she more likely to lose herself all over again…?

The review: I had heard so much about this book and so when I happened upon it on Netgalley I was thrilled! I’ll admit this is a strange review as I requested the ebook, then started it on audiobook and then stopped driving for a few days so moved back to the ebook. The narrator was exactly what this book needed, a near Miranda-type accent wise, that had me chortling out loud in parts. When I slipped over to ebook I read quickly and easily for the most part, but at some points had ups and downs in terms of both the pacing and the comedy factor. In general it was a very enjoyable book told though both blog posts and Alice’s narration and is definitely worth an investigation. Thanks so much to Orion Publishing and Netgalley for the book in return for an honest review.

  1. This title reminds me of our sons when they were little. It seemed like a constant chorus from the back seat whenever we traveled. LOL.
    A great review. I don’t do audiobooks, but I’ve added it to my ever-growing wish list.
