If there has to be a 'lad dad' genre, O'Farrell's your man.,

This review is from: The Best a Man Can Get (Paperback)
I really enjoyed "Things Can Only Get Better," and ordered this one not knowing the plot. But quicker than you can say Nick Hornby, I had finished it. Let's put in perspective: is this earth-shaking literature that will stand the test of time? Will they one day be talking about Shakespeare, Tolstoy, and O'Farrell? Of course not. What this is is an incredibly enjoyable, well-observed book that will make you laugh out loud and annoy whoever is around by saying, "Just read this paragraph." The book won't tax your brain, but it will put a smile on your face. And really, what's wrong with that?
