The protagonist, Adam, is a man you both love and hate. Smooth, affluent and charming his attitude towards his "roster" girls, and his cynical pick-up routine initially made me despise him, but his honesty and "I am what I am" philosophy was both engaging and endearing. Most of the other characters are infatuated with Adam in some way, but one by one they become disillusioned and end up hating him. Adam gets a lot of anger directed at him during the course of the story, which guides the reader along the path of hating him. It is refreshing that towards the end one of the characters unexpectedly takes Adam's side, and mitigates the vitriol with something much more gentle.
Bethany, Adam's love interest, is the voice of convention. She falls in love with Adam and tries to persuade him to adopt a life of monogamy. Bethany's main concern is that she not appear "judgmental". Adam tries to show her that being judgmental is perfectly human and OK. In the first half of the book, Bethany is set up as someone who is extremely beautiful and intelligent, a paragon of female beauty. The second half deconstructs that image somewhat, and shows Bethany to be as flawed as many of the characters she tries-and fails- not to judge.
All in all, a wonderful, funny, challenging exploration of the rules of romantic relationships.
There was no great depth to the love making which was also quite elusive it did skip those parts which I suppose would have been shallow anyway.
Like all dodgy men he will eventually get his comeuppance.
