No real plotReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 July 2013
The book is directionless. I liked the beginning and I love the idea of discussing relationships and what goes wrong. The main character is very nice and his general situation may reflect the lives of real men turning thirty. Even though he seems lost, I would've preferred it if the book wasn't. There were quite a few pointless chapters that didn't make the story progress and I started skim reading to get past the pointless parts. I got bored. I did like reading about the character's friendship and past with Ginny and his other friend, especially the memories of school and University, which personally appeal to me.

Everyone can relate to Matt BeckfordReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 May 2014
I'm a big fan of chick lit and this book is basically chick lit from a male perspective. The characters were real and relatable to. I particularly liked that this book featured locations in and around Birmingham so I knew them well. Matt is anxious about turning the big 3-0 and it's basically the journey of the final month of his twenties. It's a book that will appeal to those also who've already taken the journey and are in their thirties and for those like me who are in their mid-late twenties. You'll laugh out loud, have a little cry and generally feel everything Matt feels along the way.

If you have nothing else to read!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 February 2019
Like a lot of Mike Gales novels, it can be entertaining at times, but this one is not his best. I found it a bit slow, rather boring.... put it this way I wasn't titching to get back to it. Saying that it was Ok for a quick read before sleep!!
Great nostalgiaReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 July 2018
I love Mike Gayles books, they're a great mix of nostalgia, humour, romance and poignancy. He delivers truth and wisdom on being human in an entertaining way. This book did not disappoint and though it didn't end the way I had hoped it delivered a realistic ending which is a nice change in romantic comedy
Mike GayleReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 September 2020
I really enjoy reading Mike Gayle books. Read this one the wrong way round:read ‘Turning Forty’ first. Still enjoyed it though. Most of his books are worth a read.
