Like many of the experiences in Mike Gayle's novels, I personally feel that it's difficult to criticise his work if you've lived through the events that his characters do.
I, like the other reviewers, have read all of Gayle's novels and have found them highly enjoyable. I have laughed and cried at all of them. I have empathised with the characters, felt their joy and pain. Having recently split up with my fiance I can relate to Jim and Alison. I too have had those conversations, the packing of belongings, the questions 'where did it go wrong and why?' That is why I like this book, and why I have liked his other novels. He speaks like a real person about real events that people go through - not some Hollywood fluff. I love his style of talking in a blokey way, but not so much so that girls can't understand it. Given that Alison also has a dialogue in this book I felt that a female character was given a lot more room to grow here than in previous novels.
Gayle's excellent style of writing, in a diary format including events and dialogue, is a winning formula that will keep people coming back for more. It really depends on whether or not you're looking for something that's a complete departure from his other books - if so you may be disappointed (London, Birmingham, Manchester and Archway(!) all feature once again).
A winner for me!

Format: Paperback
If you've ever read and enjoyed Mike Gayle's previous books, you'll be infor a treat. The themes explored throughout the previous books havegradually been becoming more and more mature and complex.
His 'n' Herslooks at the relationship between Jim and Alison over a period of years. The narrative begins in the present day and "flashes back" for the bulk ofthe book. We get "diary-style" entries from both Jim and Alison. It's avery clever method of helping the reader empathise with the two centralcharacters. We see the development (good and bad) of the relationship asthe years wear on.
I do like Mike Gayle's style of writing about men'spoints of views to life. The best way I can decribe it is an "immaturestyle to describe very mature topics!" It makes the book very easy to read(finished it in 3 days).
My main gripe about the book is it's finale. It just seems very "rushed". It's very obvious from reading the book, that a lot of care was spent onthe development of the relationship but how the characters will continueafter the book has finished leaves a LOT to the imagination.
Overall Ithink this Mike Gayle's best book since Mr. Commitment. It does containmoments that make you laugh out loud but I think what sets it apart frommost of the others is the time and care Mr. Gayle has spent on developinghis two main characters - who you WILL genuinely feel for. One lastpoint: I've noticed that a lot of the blurbs on the internet, mention aJim and Alison going to see a guidance counsellor. This does not EVERhappen in the book! Weird...

Format: Paperback
His 'n' Hers is a book which is often frightenly accurate in its interpretations of human emotions and feelings. However, sometimes the prose is a bit lengthy and I really can't imagine that a man, portrayed as a 'bloke' in so many ways, would be so in touch with his feelings and be able to express them so lucidly. The storyline is believable but the characters, especially Jim, don't feel quite so sincere. However, there are parts I could relate to and was disappointed it only took two nights to read. Good reading if you don't want to concentrate too hard!

Format: Paperback
I have read all of Mike Gayles work and always feel that the next onecannot be as good as the one before. His 'n' Hers I read in a day a dayoff work in the Easter holidays, I sat the children in front of the DVDand read, I have never had the urge to read a book in that way beforedespite doing A level English.
This really is one of the best books Ihave read, the characters appear in front of you, their emotions are onesyou have had, their actions are things you have done.
It is written in day time/hourly pieces that just make you want to keepturning the page.
There is a reference to why do women have severalmillion bottles of shampoo and conditioner and only one head? sticks in mymind!
The story is about relationships both between men,women and their familyand coping with the different things that life can throw at you. The storyalternates between being funny, melancholy and sometimes very sad.
This is a book I recommend everybody should read.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 1 Aug. 2004
Format: Paperback
Mike Gayle's previous novels have been characterised by lots of dialogue, contemporary settings, pop culture references and a central character you can easily identify with. This has typically been a young man or woman in their late 20s, starting to get to grips with serious relationships, parenthood and impending middle aged. They've been enjoyable, page turning reads that would keep you gripped whilst having nothing new to say.
But I felt that "His N Hers" - which doesn't depart from this tried and tested formula - was a stale read in comparision with some of his earlier novels. The story is set around the relationship break up of Jim and Alison, and the possibility that they might resurrect their ailing passion. All the usual Mike Gayle attributes are there, but on this occasion, they just weren't sufficent to keep me hooked. We never feel close enough to Alison and Jim to care what happens to them, and as a result, their story plods rather than sparkles.
