Publisher's Summary

If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That ,to me, is a better reflection of a human's life.
Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune, meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.
In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies, Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

the way nick tells his stories really made me laugh, the slang is hilarious.
although troubled by a lot of down times he always bounces back.
if your not offended by bad language and like random funny stories about life experiences, this book is for you.

No holds barred memoir from a man finding his way.

What made the experience of listening to Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies the most enjoyable?

I have been a fan of Nick Frost since Shaun of the Dead, where I first experienced his knack for comedy and saw the real life friendship with Simon Pegg. There was no doubt in my mind that they were friends in real life and I wondered how these two blokes met. Well this book answers that question and so much more. Nick tells his warts and all story with more truths than half truths with an open honesty which will leave me thinking about his story for some time to come. I have never met the man but this book makes me feel I have.

What did you like best about this story?

Nick has some dark days described in this book but the good shines through when he is talking about his best mate Simon Pegg and you can really feel that brotherly connection that the two obviously share. The Pie Gate story cracked me up when he is impersonating Simon's voice and reaction, it was something straight out of Spaced. His Edgar was hilarious too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I churned through the book in a couple of days, not wishing it would end.

Any additional comments?

I can only hope that Nick definitely follows this up with another memoir as he had stated he will. I love the fact he wrote it for his son (fingers crossed for more Frosts as well) and did the narration himself. This is a keeper.
