If you already know of Iain's work you will already know how incredibly funny he is to listen to, but would this translate over to the written word? The answer - Hell yeah!
Not Ready To Adult Yet takes the reader behind the scenes of Iain growing up as a millennial, and navigating the path to adulthood. There are lots of anecdotes that remind us that growing up is not plain sailing, and as well as giving the reader lots of laughs there are some important messages there too.
I am older than the target audience of this book (being part of Generation X rather than a millennial) but it resonated heaps with me too. Things are totally different to when I was entering adulthood, with no mobile phone, a dial up internet connection that would take forever, and knowing my best friends number off by heart from dialling it daily. But whether you are a millennial or not doesn't matter. This book is for all to read and enjoy!
The stories are brilliantly funny, but at the same time give food for thought and reflection about our own lives and what we judge as success or failure, how we make decisions and whether we are all becoming totally self obsessed and consumed. Iain has really put thought, and research into his work, which takes this away from an autobiography and into another realm where he uses his own experiences to question what we do, why we do it, and whether sometimes we should do things differently.
Be warned, if you are a fan, you may, like me, read the entire book in the voice of Iain Stirling which brings it even more to life. infact, the audio copy will be a brilliant listen if reading isnt your thing.
I admit, the book was more than I expected as it had that extra dynamic to just recounting tales of past experiences. I particularly enjoyed the section where he describes a holiday and cookies - a story that had me in fits of laughter.
Iain makes every single thing even if it is sad, dam well hilarious! He has the ability to share some home truths without being too preachy and has been on many adventures that would happen in the average 'millennial' life along with some that seem could only just happen to him.
The interviews with other people especially his mum definitely add to the book and add a depth I wasn't expecting from a book with the author riding a scooter on the cover.
I would definitely recommend Not Ready to Adult yet or anyone who . . . . no just anyone it was that good!
