Review

Praise for The Stag and Hen Weekend: 'Gayle back at his best' (Sun)

'The Brummie author is particularly adept at depicting male and female characters with equal conviction . . . He affords his characters patience, and his plots all move along swimmingly on the back of his clear and comfy prose . . . The execution is pretty damn smart' Book of the Week **** (Daily Mirror)

Unique, funny and full of drama, we loved this story's twist . . . Genius! (Closer)

Innovative new book from chick-lit king Mike Gayle . . . it's hilarious (Now)

A unique story, filled with quirky off-beat characters [...] An addictive read from start to finish, it is a bumpy ride as we join Helen and Phil on their adventures as they make the most of their freedom whilst learning a few home truths about one another as they discover that the path of true love never runs smoothly. Filled to the brim with vibrant characters and one-liners, Mike Gayle brings a breath of fresh air to the chick-lit genre. (Handwritten Girl)

I have always loved Mike Gayle's books as they have made me laugh out loud throughout. They have also given me a great insight into the male's point of view in many situations....!

I was eagerly anticipating this book but unfortunately it didn't match my expectations.

Instead of experiencing what a lot of 39/40 year olds do, the character befriends an old pop star and dreams of re-kindling a relationship with his high school crush......I just felt that other relationships could have been better explored - with his siblings and their partners, his nieces and nephews, his soon to be ex-wife...

I've not yet hit 40 but instead of laughing at what may be on the horizon, I found myself closing this book with an element of sadness about how the character's life had turned out and disappointment about how this wasn't the comedy read I had hoped for....

As usual this author has me hooked , I have read the book not wanting it to come to the end.
This writer always makes me feel uncomfortable as if he can see into my mind, I would rather he didn't,there's too much there to share!

I felt a little disappointed with this book, dragged on a bit in the middle, and kind of ended before I was expecting, definitely read it if you're a fan of Mike Gayle, but otherwise, pick any of his others first!

Used to really like Mike Gayles books but I think he's run out of ideas. This latest book features the same character from turning 30 but in this book loses everything he has gained in the last 10 years. The character comes across as a bit of a loser and a man child who just needs to grow up which makes him very hard to like. Very disappointing.
