`Booty' follows many of the tropes of the Lad Lit genre; David the lovelorn hero searches for true love in a sea of quick and meaningless relationships. The character also manages to be wealthy despite himself - I wish true life was like that. In many ways David is not very pleasant, he struggles to remember the names of the women in his life so he nicknames them. I'm sure they have names for David, but none of them could be repeated here. Despite David being as alluring as a can of cat food left open for 4 days, Mebus is able to just about pull off some charming moments.
Dotted between the rude chats are some genuinely funny set pieces that had me amused; from the bizarre camping trip to the family egg hunt extreme. There is a sense of real kinship between David and the various friends he has in the book, it is just a shame that he does not treat the women in his life with the same level of respect. With moments that made me chuckle throughout I have to say that `Booty Nomad' overcame my embarrassment of the cover and was a decent slice of lad based literature.
I have already purchased several copies to give as gifts to my male AND female friends. Better than Hornby and up there with Steve Horsfall in my opinion
It's a very witty read and the language is down to earth and each character is fantastically developed.
I was sad to see the book end but I defnitely enjoyed the way it did, it really couldn't have ended any other way.
