Very funny book. I've loved all of Matt Dunn's novels and this one is no exception. You really feel for the central character, Will, as he struggles to find someone to settle down with. Laugh out loud funny and touching too.

I found the book to be spot on in its observations ...I could really empathise as a man of similar ilk and standing. The writing flows and I really liked the characters and situations

Initially I delayed reading this novel. The idea that a 30 something male, desperate to become a Dad, was seeking a lady to impregnate with child, sounded silly. I couldn't imagine that a worth while novel could be built around such an idea. How wrong could I be? As par the course with most of Matt Dunn's novels, this one again has laugh aloud moments, and quite shrewd observations about the male & female of the species, and how we interact with each other. A quite enjoyable, warm, delightful read that I'm glad I spent the time getting to know.

This book has a bit of everything-the light hearted banter,the serious,the romance and the downright funny.
The book gets better and better as the story unfolds.
Well done Matt Dunn.

I came across this book in a top ten section in a magazine. I was looking for some easy reading to take away on holiday with me, and was drawn to it because I hadn't come across that many books of this genre written by men. I had just finished reading a Freya north book and thought it would be a nice correlation to read a book by a man and see how they tick! I absolutely loved this book, it's fresh and witty and definitely makes you laugh out loud, sometimes just at the main character's embarrassment. I thought this book cleverly twisted the norm, in that a man is looking for someone to make him a father and I hadn't really thought like that. This is the first book I read of Matt Dunn's and would recommend it to anyone. I have just about finished reading the Ex- girlfriends handbook which does really continue from the Ex-boyfriends handbook, but I found it doesn't really matter what order you read them in, they are just so easy to read. I think women and men alike can relate well to the characters. Once you've read one, you'll want to continue with these witty books.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Terence Jones VINE VOICE on 11 Oct. 2007
Format: Paperback
This is Matt Dunn's third book The first book - Best Man in which a guy tries to stop his friend from marrying a wholely unsuitable woman while dealing with his own relationship crisis.

The second book - The Ex-Boyfriend's Handbook centres on a guy who is dumped by his woman for becoming slothfull, lazy and fat.
So he sets about getting himself in shape to try to win her back.

This new book is a logical step from the other two in which a guy tired of his bachelor lifestyle decides he wants to have a child with a woman
problem is he doesn't yet have a woman or at least not one suitable to be the mother of his child. So he decides to change his life so that when he meets someone suitable there is no messing about - off goes the sports car to be replaced with a 4x4, the spare room is cleaned out, decorated and kitted with baby furniture.
Cue a plethora of schemes to win the mother of his dreams 0 auctioning himself on Ebay, Online Dating, begging old flames to marry him and have a kid. All with typically disasterous results.

If i'm honest like the other two books by the third chapter you should have twigged how it's going to end and with who.

Thoroughly recommended

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. L. Rutter on 16 Jun. 2010
Format: Paperback
Along with the rise of chick lit, there has been an increase in the books written from a male perspective, of which Mike Gayle is one of the major contributors. This was the first book I have read by Matt Dunn, and I have to confess to being fairly disappointed.

The crux of this is that, no matter how funny the book was - and it definitely raised a few chuckles, including a rather amusing scene in a Gap changing room - I disliked the main character of Will. This is a man who has treated previous girlfriends abominably, who has brought a certificate off ebay so that he can set himself up as a life coach, and who decides that he wants to have a baby, regardless of who he might hurt to get to that end result.

The book suffers from this, because you don't actually want Will to achieve his goal, because you feel as though he would be a far from adequate father.

There are also some massive cliches in the book, including a visit from Will's father and realising that the girl he ends up with already has a child (something that is signposted so heavily that you are almost insulted!)

I did, however, like the characters of Barbara and Tom, who manage to dispense well-meaning advice to the prospective father, and provide a realistic picture of what life is like when a child (or children) come along to disrupt things.

So, not altogether bad but very disposable fiction I'd say, and not a book that I would pick up again.
