A note on context: this review was originally listed on my blog (On Cheese Rolling And Other Adventures: Review of Ian Usher's A LIFE SOLD), hence the references to writing techniques etc. Enjoy!

A Life Sold follows the fascinating journey of a man who sold his life on ebay and lived – really lived – to tell the tale. The result is an impossible, inspiring, intriguing adventure.

Whatever’s on your bucket list, you can bet Ian’s achieved or at least tried something along those lines. Whether it’s t
It took me two efforts to really get into this book (and eventually finish it). I think I only finished the second time because I'm doing my own 101 in 1001 challenge. If you like to live vicariously of adventures you'll never do and places you'll never go then this is for you. Problem is in the days of internet and social media it isn't even that unusual a story.

Bit less than half way through and not only is it a diary style book of his adventures an goals but a log of how many women he can meet! Had to google the guy to see what he looked like as thought he must be a real stud....will continue reading
This book is a great motivational read for following your dreams and expanding your horizons. Ian splits up each section by weeks and goals. The beginning is long and filled with history and his feelings. Once the journey gets going the goals are explained and his feelings are quite moving.
Ian has an appendix with a list of the goals. I would have preferred it at the beginning so I knew what he was doing and each goals Turks could have been more informative.
In the end it is a nice read but you

Not bad for a first time writer. I thought his list of activities was fairly interesting even though skydiving holds limited appeal for me. One minor annoyance was the formatting of the activity list in the Kindle Fire edition. It did not come through very well. Overall I thought this was a pleasant, if slightly bittersweet tale.

Great story, really enjoyed it. Written by the author who shattered by the end of his marriage, decides to sell his entire life hes been living on Ebay and starts afresh by setting himself a challenge to travel the world and accomplishing 100 things in 100 weeks and meeting new people along the way. Thought provoking and a great read.

Interesting all the things he did, but he is not a very good writer. kind of boring esp near the end. he spends a lot of time talking about his divorce and it gets uninteresting

Added a few things to my own bucket list from this but overall found the book a bit tedious and at times boring
