I appreciated the male perspective and found getting into a man's head interesting. It was a great story, full of insight into male friendships and why they don't discuss `serious things' often leading to hilarious outcomes. It was also amusing to read the male point of view when it comes to relationships, both his best friend's and his own.
This novel was fast paced and easy to read. The characters were all clearly defined and I found none of them irritating (except those that were meant to) and rooted for Adam to get up the courage to have his `talk' with Nick.
I look forward to reading another Matt Dunn novel as soon as we can get to one!

Tye male leads in this are very 'blokeish", they are rich, lazy and shallow Londoners. They have a bantering relationship while maintaining very easy lives. There are some very funny one-liners and dialogue and this is very easy reading indeed. Written very much from a male perspective you can imagine this is the sort of book that would get great reviews from Maxim and FHM, but it doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It's rude, crude and leans a bit on stereotypes, but at times it is funny.
Apart from a little too much drink driving (surprisingly out of place in a book of light humour), I did quite enjoy this, no classic but it was fun.
