Publisher's Summary

When siblings Dan and Hayley Daley inherit their late grandmother's derelict Victorian farmhouse, it seems like a dream come true. All they have to do is fix the place up and sell it for a tidy profit!
Except - as anyone who has renovated an old house knows - things are never that easy.
The walls are rapidly crumbling around them, the architect is a certified lunatic, the budget is spiraling...and then there's the disturbingly intelligent cow to worry about.
On top of all this, the renovation is being featured on a daytime reality TV show, and as soon as Great Locations presenter Gerard O'Keefe catches sight of Hayley's first-floor balcony, he's determined to woo her out of her ban on romance, whether she wants him to or not.
Will Dan and Hayley survive and sell up? Or will the whole thing collapse on them like a ton of bricks?
From bestselling author Nick Spalding comes a hilarious tale of life, love, and dodgy plumbing.

Just rather silly...

Having read the reviews about how funny this book is...I gave it a listen. Although it had its cute moments, I think it got only one little smile or two from me. I think it's probably a generational thing. I'm in my sixties and found some of the behavior of the characters just plain silly and somewhat crass.

coarse, predictable

I was surprised to see how many favorable reviews this book has. so much of the humor was scatological 3rd-grade level jokes about bodily functions or goofy gags. also, part of the plot revolved around the fact that the architect and builder were supposed to be cheap, bottom of the barrel sorts, but in fact all of the workers work hard and do a flawless job, something anyone who has ever gone through home renovations will know is unbelievable in and of itself

Loved it!

What other book might you compare Bricking It to, and why?

Same style as Fat Chance by the same author. I loved that too!

What does Napoleon Ryan and Heather Wilds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellent narration. Heather Wilds sounds a bit robotic at first, but after a little while it becomes apparent that her tone is one of distain. This works beautifully with the very funny lines written by Spalding.

Any additional comments?

This is a lough out loud funny book, just as Spalding's earlier Fat Chance is.

Too posh

The actors voices were too posh for the characters! I found this spoilt the whole experience. I have read many of Nick Spalding's books so I thought I would try this with the audible app as I have been laying on a beach and thought it would be a more relaxing experience. Very funny book though I just love his humour. Please write some more!
