I was give this to read by a collegaue, and although I haven't read any of his books for years, I thought I'd give it a try.
Unsurprisingly, this is a light, easy read, full of short chapters and characters that are quite shallow and easy to understand.
The story centres on three men going on holiday in their 30s to the place they went to when they left uni.
Having been on this sort of holiday, I cringed at some of the descriptions of 18-30s holidays and enjoyed the small twists and turns of the story that saw all of the main charcaters revealing secrets and acting far more immaturely than you'd expect .
Whilst it isn't a life-changing book, it's a nice tale that is told proficiently. The only thing i would say was bad was a convoluted plot device involving all the characters getting suppossedly symbolic tattoos at the end of their holiday, which was a bit sick-inducing, but other than that, it was ok.
