How Do You Like Me Now? Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
A Stylist must-read & a Red Magazine Best Book of 2018.
'Turning 30 is like playing musical chairs. The music stops, and everyone just marries whoever they happen to be sitting on.'
Who the f*ck is Tori Bailey?
There's no doubt that Tori is winning the game of life. She's inspired millions of women to stick two fingers up at convention with her best-selling memoir, and she has the perfect relationship to boot.
But Tori Bailey has been living a lie.
Everyone around her is getting married and having babies, but her long-term boyfriend won't even talk about getting engaged. And when her best friend Dee - her plus one, the only person who understands the madness - falls in love, suddenly Tori's in terrifying danger of being left behind.
When the world tells you to be one thing and turning 30 brings with it a loud ticking clock, it takes courage to walk your own path.
It's time for Tori to practice what she's preached, but the question is: is she brave enough?
The debut adult novel by best-selling author Holly Bourne is a blisteringly funny, honest and moving exploration of love, friendship and navigating the emotional rollercoaster of your 30s.

I dived into this book without even reading the blurb and couldn't put it down. The characters were layered and so interesting. I especially love Tori, flaws and all. The plot was also so enthralling; I was hooked.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone around 30 years old but not only, I feel like it's an important book to read no matter your age.

In terms of how it’s written, it feels lazy: similes like ‘my heart felt like it had gone through an industrial chicken shredder’ and ‘laid out like coins for sonic the hedgehog’ were particular shining examples. You never really learn anything about the protagonist’s deeper inner workings beyond the fact that she’s chronically insecure. Can you make a point about superficiality by operating only on surface level? I remain unconvinced.
However, reading the acknowledgements at the end genuinely angered me. What Bourne has written is an underwhelming and poorly-executed novel about social media and the pressures on women, but here she claims to want to do ‘justice’ to all the women who have been in an emotionally abusive relationship with a narcissist.
I found this ‘worthy’ claim, this last-ditch attempt to make a profound statement so insulting and offensive that my heart felt like it had gone through an industrial chicken shredder. Which incidentally, is exactly where this book should end up.
How, how does she know? How old is Ms Bourne to write these truths? Where are her insights coming from? Does she have a degree in relationship management?
The book is very (scarily so!) relatable - it feels great to read about all these emotions and experiences of a 30+ young and hip woman, until you start to wonder. So that is it? That is the standard norm?
I looked online and there is a bit of hate going towards the protagonist, Tori Bailey, but I loved her. I for sure experienced some of her emotions - and even if just turned thirty - I am sure you did to. That said, this is a precaution towards the "younger audience" - you could be too young to relate and thus would not appreciate the book on that deeper level.
For me "How do you like me now?" read great. Modern, feminist (fully passing the Bechdel test), touching, honest and a lot of fun. The ingenious combination and my God, so much better than other "new Bridget Joneses".
I also hope this book will give just that bit of nudge or courage for people (women and men) who might find themselves in similar situations
Absolutely recommended. Reminded me of "The Futures" of Anna Pitoniak (another great book!).
