Description

The family also always believed in her dream to become an actor which was characterised by setback after setback. Together with my brother Charlie, I staggered my way through adolescence from one drama to the next until finally, after years of trying, we had This Country commissioned by the BBC.

This audiobook is narrated by Daisy May Cooper and includes an exclusive, bonus interview with Daisy and her Dad, Paul Cooper. Her strength, courage and determination to succeed shines through this, under the protection of her signature hysterical, and eye watering humor.I then went on to follow Daisy May and Charlie Cooper on Instragam, where Daisy kept us all entertained with her what-can-you-fit-under-your-tits challenge, and all the stories of the adventures with the Sea Captain. However, the hardback printed book shows lots of previously unseen photographs, plus copies of old school text books and random drawings. I grew up battling rural poverty which was a struggle enough but my family were completely insane to boot.

Daisy was such a tonic during the lockdowns with her Instagram romance escapades, so I couldn’t wait to read this. Daisy narrates the story really well and does lots of funny voices, and she slightly goes of piste into other little chats that aren't in the book. It was heart wrenching hearing Daisy discuss her days of living on the poverty line before the break through of “This Country,” and she is a testimony to all those who pushed through the darkest of times, persevered and carried on fighting for their dreams. Also some of the photocopied pages of old school stories and notes and stuff I couldn't read them the print was very small and the writing was hard to read. I've always had an over-active imagination and felt the urge to be a massive f**king show-off so acting seemed like the obvious choice of career.This audio version also has the added bonus of an exclusive interview with Daisy and her father Paul. As for ‘accidentally’ spending the student grant on a London hotel’s penthouse suite before RADA, Daisy really doesn’t come off as very sharp. Mum, I auditioned to be a stripper by snogging a pole and was laughed off the stage by a bunch of topless dancers. is* funny, don't misunderstand me; it's bawdy, hilarious, wince-inducing, rude, self-deprecating, vulgar, and brutally honest, but there are also moments of real darkness. I have lived the most humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a life but Mum was right, you've just got to remember, sometimes the worst experiences make the most entertaining stories.

One of the most hilarious books I’ve read - so many anecdotes I was nearly crying with laughter on the train. I expect hearing the author telling the stories would be very different, but reading them on a page left me desperately sorry that she and her family had been through so much. All in all a great read, wish there was more about Charlie Daisy's brother - maybe he will come out with a book? Thanks lifting the lid on life as a wannabe actress and sharing your heartbreaking stories of all you had to endure whilst trying to 'make it' in showbiz.

She came across well on Taskmaster, I find her really funny and loved This Country, especially coming from the same rural area I totally get it all, but this book does nothing to make me think she’s a particularly decent or kind person. And just how much of a humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a s**t-storm life did I need to lead before I could finally realise my dream? There's the battle Daisy May and brother Charlie had to get back the rights to their own work from a production company who'd promised so much but delivered so little, and Daisy's own battles with low self-esteem and fear of having ideas "above her station". All the same Daisy May Cooper has fucking been THROUGH IT and she’s a walking example of how never giving up on something you really want will eventually pay off ! Overall a darker and more tragic read than what I was expecting, but with some good laugh out loud moments.

This book starts off amazing and until about 3/4 of the way through stays consistently funny (I’m still thinking about that showcase in under the pub) but I can’t help but feel the last few chapters were really rushed! There are so many mad crazy experiences in the book that I did, on occasion, question whether not they could all really be true. I love This Country, and reading about her early life showed how much of it has been written into the scripts, but I almost wish I hadn't read it.Together with my brother Charlie, I staggered my way through adolescence from one drama to the next until finally, after years of trying, we had This Country commissioned by the BBC.
