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 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....
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!

Not Mike Gayle's finest, but a good read. Good storyline, but not in depth enough with the character detail. Would like to see Matt come out on top for once!Published 8 months ago by Ross Mckenzie
