What made the experience of listening to Gasp! the most enjoyable?
Oh, most deffinitely Gomez Pugh doing a British accent that sounded like Nigel Tuffnel from Spinal Tap. It was laugh out loud brilliant.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the troubled musician angle. Yes, it's been done a billion times before but Nigel Gasp has a few... kinks that are a little out of the ordinary and it was kinda wonderful.
What about Gomez Pugh’s performance did you like?
EVERYTHING. Gomez Pugh is a master for getting to the heart of a character and not only putting emotion into his narration, but comic timing and humour. He is one of my favourite narrators in any genre.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, at the end in the hospital.
Any additional comments?
Entertaining story made even better by the top class narration.
The e-book was great but it was Gomez Pugh who elevated this audio book to great.
As the title states it's a love story. Even rock stars like Nigel need 'the one'
The book has some funny crazy moments mixed in with the poignant.
A gentle romance with no over the top angst. Just two people like many of us who find it hard to trust that they might be worth loving.
Any additional comments?
Gomez Pugh has yet to let me down. Once again, his narration, accents and all, was so freaking entertaining I found myself massaging my cheekbones a couple of times from smiling so hard for so long.
That being said, this is a slow-and-steady love story between two men who are both a bit broken in their own ways. The story isn’t flashy and ran a bit long in places. However, it was very entertaining with lots of humor, some quite hot sexy times, and (sort of) how I picture a real relationship between a rock star god and normal guy might actually be.
Nigel is a real enfant terrible. I so pictured Russell Brand the entire time I was listening to this…but the sad kind of Russell who just wants someone to love…
I love that Nigel and Jeff’s relationship isn’t instantaneous. Even though they are attracted to one another, the relationship takes work, with them slowly opening up to one another. I also love that they call each other on their shit. And did I mention the humor? Because this has some seriously funny moments. Sure there were a few things that drove me nuts, but nothing too terrible.
So bottom line? This is not a flashy or fast moving story, but it’s filled with humor, heat and romance, and the narration is terrific.

I remember when this book was published. I hedged on buying it because I knew by the premise that it would annoy me. When I saw that Gomez Pugh was narrating it, I decided to take a chance. I'm kinda glad I did, but boy, I could have strangled Nigel and Dierdre most of the time. I felt very sorry for Jeff and wished that he would have stopped apologizing for Nigel's childish behavior when he was the younger of the two and much more mature. I know that his sister was a new mother, but her emotions were too all over the place and she basically threw her brother to the wolves and made him responsible for a loose cannon. I'm glad her wife was more compassionate. The positive aspect was that Gomez was perfect as usual. He does such a great job with characters and I'll listen to anything that he narrates.
