Format: Diary
This book had me chuckling all the way through, the bitter divorcee protagonist encounters many unintentionally comical situations that simultaneously recall both The Office and Alan Partridge, of which this seems to be heavily inspired (which is no bad thing).

He's not really a grumpy old git, but someone at odds with many aspects of modern life. Facebook, management-speak, feral youths, carrier bags in shops, cashpoints, mobile phones, the list is long yet familiar, but the anti-hero does just enough to keep you rooting for him.

Some of the comical exchanges of dialogue are so memorable that I doubt I'll ever forget them. In summary, I enjoyed it so much that I was genuinely disappointed when I finished it.

This is a funny one - it's about a miserable, divorced man sinking into middle age (but at least he still has a full head of hair!)- who finds himself out of sorts with the twentysomethings in his office, whose wife has left him for a man called Brad, and who is bullied by an old school foe. I was surprised to realise it is about two hundred pages long as I was quite disappointed to find I had finished it so quickly - a sign of a good book. Also, it actually ends in April - I thought it would go on for an enitre year. One can only hope the alter ego of this grumpy old man will soon produce volume two.

A really good read with at least one 'grump' that I'm sure we can all relate to!

For me, it was in relation to phoning in sick and having to use a fake sounding voice even when you're genuinely ill! "I can only hope, that one day, civilisation advances enough for us to accept that our voices don't really change much when we're ill and we can all speak normally when we call in sick". So true!

Well worth a read, I just wish it had been a bit longer.

This is an entertaining read, probably best enjoyed by those born in the 60s - my main enjoyment came when I recognised the feelings being described! It's quite a short book, but because it's in diary format it's perfect to pick up when you have a couple of minutes to kill - boiling the kettle, perhaps, or waiting for a phone call.

To be honest, I would have felt disappointed (possibly even ripped off) if I'd bought this at today's kindle price of £4.49. But as I bought it as a Daily Deal item at 99p, I'm glad I bought it and would recommend it if it ever comes up on sale again!

I purchased this book because it was on special with Kindle and it sounded interesting.
Having long been the subject matter of the title, how could I resist?
From the first page it was impossible to put down, finished all too soon, and left me wanting to know more.
It had a compelling narrative, and was full of laugh out loud moments.

Got this book on a whim and found it to be good light hearted read, touching on real life topics about what makes you mad and how you react in ceertain situations, enabling you to take a step back and even smile at yourself when you know that you think or even say some of the things the main character does. I found myself wanting there to be more to read as I got to the end of the book.

Had high hopes for this book. Don't get me wrong it is very well written but just was not very humorous and seemed to stop mid flow. I thought you may have got a full year of the diary not just a few months.
