"Within the first few sentences, Love, Sex & Other Foreign Policy Goals had me hooked...combines the best of sitcom-style drama with just the right amount of gravity... Armstrong’s debut manages to be clever and fun while also retaining grittiness. I hope this is the first of many." (Rachael Pells Independent)
"Armstrong at his comic best ... Armstrong’s hilarious portrayal of flawed humanity wins it for me." (Lucy Frith, 4 stars Stylist)
"Original, unabashed and irresistibly funny." (Zoe Williams Guardian)
"Well-written and full of good gags." (Sebastian Shakespeare Tatler)
"A truly comic novel." (Esquire)

Do not treat this book as a comedy and you'll be fine. If you expect laugh-out-loud-a-minute or even mild-chortling-a-minute you will be disappointed. The cover is wrong, the pitch is all wrong. The Balkan war isn't funny basically. Not the greatest book I've ever read, although it has some really good moments.
The main problem is that you just don't care, at least not until near the end. The stakes aren't exactly high. I mean, so what if they don't put on their stupid play. So it was a slog at times.
