5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, witty and unputdownable, 20 May 2010
This review is from: Beta Male (Paperback)
After reading Iain Hollingshead's first novel Twenty Something (an extremely witty and cleverly funny book) I anticipated and could not wait to read his next book - I bought it the day it was released.

Beta Male tells the story of four close friends whose complicated relationships as friends has evolved over the decades into something somewhat dysfunctional yet functional, wrong yet right and complicated yet, well yes complicated. They find themselves at a cross roads in their life where they all encounter dramatic changes - for some, not their choice, and the story unravels from there.

Heartbreak, lies, romance, drunken bets and those car crash moments in life where you can't help but look all centre around how a person finds them self in life's big plans creates the most special and funny moments in this unputdownable book. Masculine ideologies or the lack of understanding them, drive the narrative forward and male readers will love it, but not at the cost of alienating female readers, for you will either feel empowered, empathise or understand - even through the penis monologues!

I strongly recommend this funny, extremely entertaining and quick read and then pass it on, and while you're there get Twenty Something too!!!

I'm waiting for the next one now!
