Ash Winters is barely holding on, near drowning in his own darkness and fear. He lives a gray shadow of a life, sullen and cynical, unable to remember hope or happiness - much less the distant, fading glitterball of love. It has to be a sick joke of the universe that he finds himself hooked up with good-humored Essex boy Darian Taylor, a wannabe model in a sparkly jacket and a fake tan. Darian may not be an intellectual giant, but he's hysterically funny, and he's got the courage to challenge Ash to live again.
Just being able to laugh is extraordinary enough to Ash. Loving may be a gift he can't bear to accept, even if his denial breaks the biggest heart he's ever known.

Hilarious, Emotional, Satisfying.
The wonderful writing and characters, the wit and the understanding shown of Ash's condition, and of course, the lovely Darian!
Nicholas Boulton is the God of voices! I have NEVER heard a more beautifully gifted performer, ever. I have over a hundred Audio books and many voiced by Nicholas.
WHO NEEDS A FILM?
With this narrator you actually see the story as you listen and I wouldn't want the story spoilt by miscasting and bad direction as happens nowadays. Readers are readers, after all, and do have imagination.
This is just an experience no one should miss. What a writer!
Brilliant story - fantastic narration
Whilst I loved the book, there is just something about hearing the characters brought to life that adds that little bit extra - Nicholas Boulton absolutely nails the narration, both in terms of bringing the characters to life but also acting out the story so it's less about listening to Glitterland and more about living it.
Hmm - don't think I have read anything that quite compares. It's a romantic, honest, endearing, yet sometimes serious book, and without doubt the funniest one I have ever read.
No, but I will definitely take a look. His take on Darian was like Michael Caine crossed with Rylan Clark and hit the nail on the head.
