Fast paced, funny and romantic. You MUST read this.,

This review is from: Dinner for Two (Paperback)
Thanks Mike Gayle for making me miss a whole weekend.
Having never read anything by Mr Gayle before, I chose this one because of the cover (at least I'm honest).
It was Saturday lunchtime, I'd just finished work, and fancied something to read. Before I knew it, it was Sunday evening. My girlfriend thinks I'm having an affair, because I didn't come to bed until 4, my dog is starving, and the book is damp, after I took it to the bath with me.
Mike Gayle writes with incredible pace. It is not possible to read just "one more chapter". In this book he uses his inside-knowledge of being an agony-uncle to tell the story of a man in a happy relationship who discovers he has a daughter from a fling 13 years ago.
It's a wonderfully touching book: funny and poignant. A must for hopeless romantics (and yes, some men are!). I wouldn't want to give too much away here, but when you read the last page, you'll let out a quiet "ahh" and get on with your life.
I am now going out to read Mike's other books, and would be interested to hear from other fans of his work.
In summary: GO BUY NOW!
