Twentysomething: The Quarter-Life Crisis of Jack L&hellip by Iain Hollingshead

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star comedy, 10 Mar 2008
This book is fantastic. It's fast-paced, witty and irreverant but also has some keen insights into modern life, modern people and modern relationships. This book made me laugh, cry and think. The pacing is especially good as Iain Hollingshead knows truly understands the balance between comedy, story and emotion. The style manages to avoid stupidity and sentimentality equally while evoking a real emotional response. The style reminded me of Danny Wallace's "Yes Man". Both novels combine cutting humour with a hopeful message and both are equally worth reading.
