  • Sadly unrelatable and not very funny to me DNF

    DNF at 43%, I should have realised when it was described as the laugh out loud comedy of the year. Josh thinks he is living his best life, living and working with his girlfriend. Then he proposes and she says no. Suddenly his world falls apart, he's out of work and back living with his parents. Disappointed with his life choices Josh decides to live his life on the flip of a coin (like the Diceman). I think this sort of novel works better in a bigger, American setting, or maybe with a more likeable MC, generally Josh's decisions are things like should he go on a blind date set up by his mum, or should he go to the pub quiz, or to his ten year school reunion - nothing earth-shattering or, frankly, interesting. He's jobless, clueless and more like a 13 year old than a 28 year old man. He meets a girl randomly in the National Gallery, fails to find out anything about her and lets down his friends. I just didn't like him and didn't care whether he turned his life around. I didn't find it funny, I think it's like Marmite or Father Ted, you either love it or loathe it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

  • 'Flipping' Funny and Romantic

    Really enjoyed this rom-com, lots of laugh out loud moments and the kind of book which puts a smile on your face - just what we all need right now.

  • Flipping dull

    Normally I would breeze through a light rom-com style book, but this one was a bit of a struggle. The characters didn't engage me, and the story was so predictable that it made any coin flip moments seem pointless. This is probably exactly the book you want when waiting for a flight - interruptions aren't unwelcome and you won't feel like you're being taken away from anything compelling. I didn't feel like there was a lot of character development, and I felt no sympathy for Josh's (the protagonist) plight as his problems seemed to mount in order to give the story something extra, but didn't deliver. As for being funny, I didn't laugh or even chuckle or grin once.

    Thanks for your feedback!
