Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brock | 2/15/2014

    " Not fantastic, but engaging and entertaining. I think that it appealed to me mostly because I'm a little OCD about my todo lists. "

    " i thought it would be another non-fiction book btu i was oh-so-wrong ... the book retains the essence of what mike gayle is aboout, - humour, witty and refreshing storyline. Wonders how he managed to stay sane with 1,227 things to tick off and also having to conquer a brick-sized war and peace (something on my list but I prolly will never get around to reading it seeing how an english lit major and a best selling author did not managed to comprehend it). Two thumbs up ... loving all his work and waiting eagerly-at-the-edge-of-my-seat for his next book! =] " "

    " Kind of meh. It was nothing special really but I did enjoy reading it. Wish it had been funnier, because that would have made it more "worth it". I got seriously annoyed with the main character sometimes, he was such a procrastinator. I think everybody are procrastinators, but he was an extreme one. Just do it! Some of the things were from years ago, come on! Anyway. If you would stumble upon it, read it, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 2/15/2014

    " A good light read. However, I would have liked a better summary at the end about what the to do list had taught him about himself and his life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alida | 2/11/2014

    " A great inspiration! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 1/23/2014

    " A lot funnier than Gayle's latest novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gladysdavid | 1/10/2014

    " A definition of funny itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brigitte | 11/22/2013

    " Read all of Mike Gayle's novels! They're funny, well written and you can't drop it once you've started, rather like Pringles! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 11/7/2013

    " An addictive read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiran | 10/10/2013

    " Really enjoyable read - and alot more to it than the title or blurb suggests. I like his style of writing - have read some of his other books and find them really easy to get into and quite often laugh out loud "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/12/2013

    " Read for my reading group. To behonest, its not the kind of thing I usually read, but it caught me from the first page. It's amusing and insightful. A difficult topic covered really well. I'd recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/8/2013

    " I needed a year to get through first 100 pages, too complicated and boring, but then with strong will it turned out to have a good american happy ending. Underscores good old "when you fall, you pick yourself up and continue". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pete Husky | 10/18/2012

    " Mike has a lovely conversational writing style, but ultimately this is a bit of autobio not fiction, and the plot is thin despite t being a good concept "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jule | 7/29/2012

    " I expected a lot more, since I loved the title and the summary of the book, but somehow I couldn't really relate to the character of Mike and kind of found it ridiculous to have a 1,277 item to-do list, even though I myself am a huge fan of to-do lists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lamazone | 5/16/2012

    " Latest book I read by Mike Gayle. He never changes his winning formula and does not really need to. One of the reasons I like his books is because I can identify with his being in his thirties and all the crises that go with that age :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/16/2012

    " Vlot en geestig geschreven. Zeer grappig om te volgen hoe Gayle zijn to-do lijst met daarop 1.277 items wegwerkt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 2/7/2012

    " Brilliant book, one that gets you thinking about all sorts of things. His style of writing took a little getting used to but only a few chapters in I was hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lea | 10/14/2011

    " It was a really good read. Very impressive that he did almost all of the 1200something things on that list in a year. It made me thought about making such a list too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 9/3/2011

    " amusing and hopefully a little bit of an inspiration to get more stuff done as I also suffer from severe procrastionation syndrome "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 5/19/2011

    " While the story itself wasn't that bad the ending did feel a bit open. Read this book more for the journey than the destination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/13/2010

    " Hadn't realised that wasn't fiction when I bookmooched it. An account of how Mike Gayle writes a To Do List of 1277 items & gives himself a year to complete them all.

    I always write To do Lists, this was a book for me (not so good at completing them though) "
