3.0 out of 5 stars Things haven't really got better, 21 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best a Man Can Get (Paperback)
A girl's book about how c**p men are masquerading as a lad's book. The interesting double-life premise - man leading a double life, but not with another woman, just with a bunch of other blokes in a sort of shared student house - isn't quite exploited as fully as it might have been, and the central character becomes an unappealing responsibility-dodging whiner. Some of the passages about the advertising jingle business are very funny, though, and the impossibility of working at home with small children in the house stuff is familiar, if the character's reaction to it is not. Although it's not a bad first effort at fiction by O'Farrell, the title of his non-fiction best seller Things Can Only Get Better does not prove prophetic here.
