Product Description

Product Description

This is the very first book from Nick Spalding, the bestselling author of the smash hit romantic comedy Love... From Both Sides and its sequels Love... And Sleepless Nights & Love... Under Different Skies.

Nick Spalding tried to write a book in 24 hours. Turns out that's impossible... it took 30!

Life... With No Breaks is a unique, hilarious and heartfelt look at the modern world we live in, told by a master story-teller with much to say - and only a weekend to say it in.

You'll laugh out loud reading Nick's odyssey of non-stop writing in a collection of anecdotes, asides and stories (admittedly featuring more fabrication and embellishment than a politician's expenses claim) - all dredged up from an over-stimulated brain functioning on caffeine, nicotine and the occasional chocolate biscuit.

The book is a conversation with you, and with Nick you'll venture into the thorny topics of love, life, sex, horribly timed bowel movements and a deathly fear of sponges (among many other things).

After you've read Life... With No Breaks, you may never look at the world the same way again!

Reviews for Nick Spalding & Life... With No Breaks:

'Spalding made headlines last year when Amazon revealed he was one of their best selling authors, selling over 400,000 copies on Kindle. It was obviously only a matter of time before someone snapped him up.' The Daily Mail.

'Spalding is literally a comedy genius.' Chick Lit Reviews & News

'Nick Spalding managed to make me laugh until my sides hurt and I had tears running down my face.' Shaz's Book Boudoir Blog

'Absolutely hilarious.' Fabulous Magazine, The Sun

'Downright hilarious.' Closer Magazine

'A collection of anecdotes, adventures and confessions that reads as satisfyingly as a novel. It's paced, it's organised, it's witty, it's wise, it's from the hip... and it's put together with admirable word economy by a master storyteller with much to say and only a weekend to say it in.' - Neil Marr, editor in chief, BeWrite Books

'You have to admire any writer who can produce a book as hilarious as this in just over a day. B*st*rd!' - Stephen Leather, best selling author

The sequel - Life... On A High - is available now!

About the Author

Nick Spalding is an author who, try as he might, can't seem to write anything serious. He's worked in the communications industry his entire life, mainly in media and marketing. As talking rubbish for a living can get tiresome (for anyone other than a politician), he thought he'd have a crack at writing comedy fiction - with an agreeable level of success so far, it has to be said. Nick lives in the South of England with his fiancée. He is approaching his forties with the kind of dread usually associated with a trip to the gallows, suffers from the occasional bout of insomnia, and still thinks Batman is cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Sponge sorry Star Book 19 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I decided to read this book whilst feeling down. This was one of the best ideas ever. Totally loved the book. Nick made me feel as if I was actually sitting on that chair in his house stuffing my face with his cookies and coffee. To say it made me laugh was an understatement. This is a book I will read again and again and possibly again. Can't wait for the next one. Thanks for cheering me up Nick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably different 3 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only books I normally read are fiction so this was a different type of book for me, I bought it after reading the threads about it on the kindle discussion boards. I really enjoyed the book, it made me laugh out loud quite a few times and I loved the way Nick spoke to me, the reader!

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining idea 5 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is quite difficult to describe as it is a mix of stories, ideas, advice and opinions on various subjects. It's a very light hearted and funny read, and it feels a bit like having a chat with someone in a pub. I particularly liked the story of the funeral for the person that nobody liked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth a read! 6 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Curiosity got the better of me about this book - written over a couple of days the author invites you into his house and offers you cookies and coffee. This book reminded me of many a pleasant evening I've spent with friends in the front room reminiscing over a bottle of wine on adolescence, mistakes made, disastrous relationships, bad decisions, regrets and impulse purchases!! As I sat on the bus reading this there were moments where I felt Nick was sitting next to me and including me in his late night thoughts, early morning philosophies and future wishes. This is not an earth shattering piece of writing, a piece of writing that makes you think about why we're all here and where we're going - this is a piece of cosy writing that people of a certain age connect with, smile with and I hope one day I bump into Nick in a bar and can buy him a pint and thank him for letting me share a couple of days with him and his coffee and cookies - please Nick, keep windows open though when smoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and hilarious! 28 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
Life with no breaks has to be one of the funniest books I've read in years. From start to finish I found myself laughing out loud at Spaldings's escapades, stange phobias (sponges!) and observations. There were so many entertaining stories, too many to list here, although the embarrasing university story is worth a mention.
I loved how the book was written in one sitting; it made me feel part of the author's journey through his thoughts and reminiscences. And I felt almost priviledged to be included in some of the more personal and private confessions. I had attempted to read this all in one go as a nod to Spalding's mammoth writing session - but I didn't have his stamina (or coffee!).
A brilliant, hilarious book, well worth a read. Spalding has a real talent for drawing you in and leaving you wanting more. I shall definately be reading more by this fantastic author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading......with no breaks 20 April 2011
By K Noble
Format:Kindle Edition
Ever wanted to delve into the mind of a writer? Well if you can't have that, you can always spend 24 hours with Nick Spalding! Haha!

Nick generously offers the reader coffee and cookies as he winds his way through the tales and tribulations of his life so far. The conversational nature of the book makes this easy to read and I found myself nodding along in agreement with Nick (before realising I looked like a complete nut job!)
To me this book is absolutely worth all 5 shiny gold stars - it makes you laugh, it makes you think and best of all it made an 8 hour delay in the airport almost enjoyable!
Nice on Nick!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great idea leading to a fantastic read 18 Feb 2011
By MisterG
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read loads of reports about this on the Kjndle forum so I thought I'd give it a go. I didn't really know what to expect. A guy at the keyboard in one sitting. Surely it would be a bit random. Yep, but great with it. We end up with an autobiography covering the highs, lows and humorous points in a great little package. Some parts were genuinely moving. Others provoked the "let me just read you this" response. All of it was readable.
A minor warning: some of the material is adult in nature; be careful where you read it :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Middle aged man's cynical view of life 1 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Middle aged man writing inanely about his view of life, coloured with stories from his own life. Reels you in early on with the one "laugh out loud" story from his student days - but from there on in it's downhill. Think Jack Dee without being amusing. (Jack Dee I like!) "Pearls of wisdom" like advice to take one day off every 3 months pretending to be sick and to do only what you absolutely have to at work. Got 40% of the way through and packed it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars a fun day's read
A slow start, with me thinking it was quite pretentious, soon moved into a book that I was looking forward to picking up and that the ticking of the clock wouldn't bring the end.
