Format: Paperback
I have to admit to having had reservations when, as a chap, I ventured into the first chapter of this rather pink publication. It took less than a page, however, for me to be utterly transfixed by the hilarious succession of anecdotes that ensues. This is a book about being a single woman, and the author's analytical and charmingly neurotic approach to the dating ritual is clearly something that women will relate to and revere. But this is also a book about men. There are many of them, and they come in many shapes and sizes, with a range of behavioural tendencies towards our heroine, but by the end I felt nothing short of enlightened. This is how we come across! This is how not to behave! This is how women interpret what we do. I would encourage men everywhere to perouse past the pinkness, and read this book. As well as being relentlessly funny and un-put-down-ably gripping, it is a hugely insightful glimpse into the minds of those whom we seek to impress.

What a fun, real and fantastic book! I read this book over two days on my holiday and could not put it down! A seriously enjoyable read with many `I can relate to that!' moments and it made me laugh out loud a number of times! Very funny and very readable! I felt a little lost when it was finished and I'm already looking forward to the next book by this author!

I was persuaded to read this great debut book by a female friend who wouldn't stop talking about it. Initially I was unsure -as a male reader- whether I could cope with the content: all kinds of detailed dating related questions are asked which I was unaware even existed! However, as I read on I realised that I could still very much enjoy the narrative which takes one on a journey through the dating life of a modern 30-something British girl. While one follows a year in the life of our protagonist, we are also taken on a thoroughly enjoyable journey through Britain and British culture.
A great read, and great debut book, heres waiting for the next Alison Taylor instalment!

Alison Taylor has written a masterpiece with her debut publication. There are few people who can write a book where just about every page will have you laughing to yourself, often out loud. Yet this book is also much more than humour; it's an honest, heart-on-the -sleeve analysis of the quest for love in the third millennium. This is a romantic novel, an academic paper and a comedy.
Alison Taylor is a mix of Sue Townsend, Woody Allen, Ricky Gervais and Charlotte Bronte. This book is brilliant. Don't hesitate. Buy it now.

Wow what a great read. Its not my normal cup of tea (being a married male) but I haven't enjoyed a book this much for a long time.

This book made me chuckle and laugh out loud - at times I wanted to yell at the author Alison Taylor: 'where do you find these losers'. There are also some sadder, more poignant moments that are wonderfully written.

I finished this book in less than a day and my wife grabbed it straight off me having seen my reaction - all in all an amazing summer read.

I read my girlfriend's copy as I ran out of reading materials on our beach holiday. And whoa, was I not prepared for this!
A remarkably brave, and sometimes uncomfortably honest, insight in the workings of a young woman looking for old-school love.
I have to admit I squirmed sometimes, but laughed more - it's super-witty-finger-on-the-pulse stuff. The music she listens to and the places in London she hangs out make it all the cooler. Bravo.

entertaining and well written this book will mean something to anyone who has dated looking for love whether or not they were ultimately successful - the refreshingly and sometimes painfully honest narrative creates empathy so that you feel like you know the author. im already looking forward to her next one. surely someone will turn this into a tv series of a film? has thinking person's bridget jones written all over it

One of THE funniest books I have ever read. Great to read a book by a very funny woman, featuring other very funny women. Very cool and honest - so refreshing. It doesn't matter if you're single or in a relationship, you will be laughing and crying along with Alison. It's reassuring to know I'm not the only girl who over-analyses text messages! My boyfriend read it too and loved it. And my mum! Brilliant.
