5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent parody of 20-something London living, 4 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Clapham Lights (Kindle Edition)
If you are between 20 and 35 and have lived in London, then you'll probably love this book. It's a great parody of the lifestyle and characters that you'd have encountered over the last few years in the capital.

The story centres around Mark, a confident yet incompetent low-level employee in the financial sector - and his house mate, Craig, an estate agent struggling to make a sale. Largely thanks to the recession and his hapless ego-maniac boss.

The book follows their adventures in money, women, and booze. With most of the results coming in the latter category. The dialogue is sharp and funny, and the satirical slant on companies, the media, and celebrities is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny at times.

Whilst it's a comedy novel, the author still managers to weave a compelling story and make you care about the characters all the way to the finale.

This is a book I will read again, and I don't say that often.
