Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Nick Spalding comes a laugh-out-loud story about getting offline--and getting on with life.

Andy Bellows is in a right state. Plagued with insomnia, anxiety, and neckache, he’s convinced there’s something seriously wrong with him. And the worst thing is that his doctor agrees. The diagnosis: Andy is in the grip of a self-destructive addiction to technology--he just cannot put that bloody mobile phone down.

Texting, tweeting, gaming and online dating--technology rules Andy’s life. His phone even monitors his bowel movements. So how will he cope when he’s forced to follow doctor’s orders and step away from all of his beloved screens?

From having to leave the flat in search of food like some kind of Neanderthal to engaging in conversations with actual people, Andy’s about to discover just how bewildering--and scary--the analogue world can be.

And when his sixty-day detox hits the headlines--making him a hero to suffering technophiles everywhere--Andy is sorely tempted to pack it all in and escape in the nearest Uber.

Can he get himself out of this mess, and work out how to live a better, technologically balanced life…without consulting Google even once?

Nick you did it again!

Love Nick’s novels. This one makes you think and laugh. Again grest character development. Keeps things light and message that could help many. If you are a Nick Spalding fan listen for subtle references from other books woven in. Great narration by Rory!!
Thank you. The book helped me relax after work coming home from the hospital during the pandemic.

Logged off

I think for me, Nick stories have lost their initial charm. All the cheeky humor is still there but the characters are far from relatable or believable.

The concept was good but the execution fell short that after 10 chapters I just gave up.

First world problems.

Normally I really like Spaldings quirky protagonists and silly adventures. I felt the protagonist with this book really didn't seem to struggle with the challenge of "logging off" except for getting lost without a GPS. He called himself an addict, but then forgot to show any ongoing struggles with the addiction throughout the store. It came off as "Oh yeah, I should throw a line in hear about how he's struggling" instead of FEELING like an ongoing struggle. Also there was this weird meta thing where all the characters from his other books made a cameo? Probably won't re-read this one.

So Funny

Nick Spalding is one of my new favorite authors, he always makes me laugh. The audio version is even better.
This book is so timely - what would happen if we just disconnected? Logged off? No devices? How would we survive??
Hilarious, that's how.
The narration was great and funny as well. Totally recommend this book, you will laugh out loud. Which was not awkward with wireless headphones and no one knew I was listening to anything.....

Entertaining

An entertaining book about Andy, who is addicted to social media. He starts a digital detox which opens his eyes to the illusion of internet stars and gets him into some awkward situations. Great narration on audible.
