Publisher's Summary

Lori Belkin has been dumped. By her parents. They moved out while she was away on holiday, and now, at the tender age of 25, she must stand on her own two feet. While she’s getting to grips with basic adulting, Lori magically brings to life the super-sexy man she created from celebrity photos as a teenager. Lori learns very quickly that having your ideal man is not as satisfying as it ought to be and that being an adult is far harder than it looks.

Snowflake is a story about prehistoric pets, delinquent donkeys, and becoming the person you want to be, not the person everyone else expects you to be.

Humorous and Entertaining

Lori has had many breakups in her short life, but never from her parents. Returning from a holiday, Lori finds that her parents have sold their home, moved and didn't tell her.

After she finds a note from them, she realizes she must now make her own way in the world. After a series of misadventures and misunderstandings, Lori finally starts to learn the lessons of "Adulting".

This was a delightful listen/read and Diana Croft brought each character to life......including "Lexi".

Lori must die.

The story is amusing, the Narration excellent but after an hour of listening I wanted to smack the living (expletive) out of this girl & her parents.

Hilarious...and profound!

These authors are endlessly entertaining (I've loved every one of their books), but this one is not only laugh-out-loud funny - it also is poignant.

Starts kinda ropy, quickly ramps up. Good fun!

Everyone starts out annoying, but knowing G&G's work, I hung on through the first curve and the story gained pace, fun, complications, and depth (despite their frivolous premises, G&G's stories can be gleefully profound.)

The characters were fun & distinctive, the relationships & motivations convincing, and the reader was good & had fun with it. The final set piece went completely over the top, and maybe only G&G could be that shameless and get away with it, but they sure had tons of fun with "deus ex machina".

Great entertainment value!

Adulting...

Snowflake by Heide Goody and Ian Grant is a great listen. I loved the great humor, vibrant imagery and endearing characters. Lori has some great escapes "adulting" in this British listen. Diana Croft was magical bringing the characters to life, and added the right emotions delivering the humor. I found myself laughing out loud at times with this book. I really enjoyed it!

A bit silly and frivolous but good fun and funny.

I like these authors and if you haven't tried their Clovenhoof series you really should. This book is not in that league but is nonetheless a silly but enjoyable listen. The premise was good- what do you do if you get home from holidays to find your parents have left and you are newly homeless and without any means of support. This was the situation for Lori.
As she navigates the real adult world there are touches of magic in her life that don't always help.
There were some really good bits in this book, but there are bits that drag or feel overlong. Lori seems very young for her age and very immature. She is also not that likeable.
The people around her are a mixed bag and not all of them worked that well for me.
The narrator was ok but she had a limited range of voices and it was difficult at times to tell characters apart.
Overall a 3.5 Stars from me.

Light-hearted and funny

If you want a light-hearted, funny audiobook to help you take your mind off stress, look no further. Snowflake is a prefectly amusing distraction that will often have you laughing out loud.
Mayhem and some magic surrounds Lori as she tries to come to terms with the fact that her parents abandoned her: she is forced to grow up and become a fully functioning adult at the age of 25! The road ahead is bumpy; it's not an easy task for her to understand and survive the everyday life but she tries hard. With more or less success. Well, to be fair, more disaster and less success in the beginning that's for sure.
This audiobook is brilliantly narrated by Diana Croft and it's almost as hard to put it down as it is to find the exit in IKEA.
I would highly recommend it to old and new fans' of Heide Goody and Iain Grant's writing.

Twistedly funny

I started this book at work...warning if you have to concentrate on a job do not start this. You will not be able to concentrate. Some of the one liners got me completely off balance. The Bounty line was definitely one of my favourites.
I’ve enjoy other books by these authors and honestly if you need a pick me up go pick one if theirs.
Twistedly funny, can’t go wrong.
Lori finds herself ousted by her parents and has to fend for herself. She has an amulet that becomes her go to item, a new job, erm a new man, honestly can’t do this justice.
Read or listen. Go go...read or listen

Fun and madness

A totally mad cap adventure with some laugh out loud moments and amazing escapades. Lori comes home to find everything has changed and she now has to live in the real world. Having to stand on her own two feet brings chaos, a bit of magic and some great characters. I never knew what to expect next with this book, but it was good hearted fun and an enjoyable few hours.

Great, chaotic fun

As enjoyable to listen to as to read! Chaotic, crazy fun with Lori as she learns 'adulting' - a mixture of fantasy, chick-lit and full-on slapstick fun ... I loved it plus underneath the manic lifestyle of 'snowflake' Lori you also have an intriguing element with an interesting commentary on modern life.
There are definitely laugh out loud moments plus some very endearing characters. Download it for a fun journey or listen to it for few afternoons of pure lighthearted escapism.

Hilarious, Unpredictable - narration spot on!

If you need a pick me up and a total escape from reality then I highly recommend this audiobook. The story-line is utterly bizarre which I was unsure about at first but if you just go with it then it's a perfect way to escape the drudges of reality in the current UK climate! It is farcical and totally unrealistic - which makes it fresh and unpredictable!
Full of eccentric characters, the narration totally suited the style - hilarious, witty and brilliant voices which made me laugh out loud! Diana Croft is faultless in her pacing, narrative style and characterisations.
Story summary:
You think things can't get any worse for poor Lori but well they do... She is thrown into adulthood at the deep end and seems to have strange magical powers which she can't quite control and don't always go in her favour! She thinks she has met her perfect man (of her own creation) but is he all she hoped him to be? And can she cope with the stresses and strains of being a real life grown up in modern day Britain or will she be dependant forever?
I would definitely listen to more books by these authors and narrator and highly recommend for a light, entertaining, laugh out loud listen.

Fun fun fun.

It took me a while to get into this book and I must admit , to like our heroine! But I’m soo glad I did! It became a delightful comic romp through art, magic, mythology and life as Lori grew up and became an all round adult. Heide Goody and Ian Grant have a quirky style of writing that I find very enjoyable. Although I expect it’s not for everyone, I imagine their fans are as devoted as I am. My only reservation with this audiobook is that I would have preferred to actually read this book rather than listen to it. Nothing really wrong with Diana Croft’s narration, but I’d have preferred to go slowly with the intriguing multi twisting threads of the story.

A perfectly funny audio - how much worse can life get for Baby Belkin

Heide Goody and Iain Grant I am so glad I have just discovered your works. This book is crazy and made even more so by an amazing narration by Diana Croft. Lori Belkin comes home from an eventful holiday in Greece to find out her parents have sold their home (and her home as it’s their job to look after her) and have not told her where they have gone. All she has is a note under a rock saying she can stay at her brothers until she sorts herself out and even more of a liberty they have arranged her an interview at the museum. Lori has no money and nothing apart from a straw donkey and a questionable Spanish sausage to show for herself. What transpires is a hilarious story about a woman who has no clue how to adult or even live in the world and as she tries to do her best can’t help but to make things one hundred percent worse every time. Honestly you would not want to live or work with this girl but it would be a great night out with her if you don’t get arrested In the process. I love story it’s so clever and really different.

the only reason

I gave this one star was so I could say it was disappointing. Especially after the twins..
