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.

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.

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.
