“Reading material for one”

published 03/03/2003

It was cheap. And quite readable.

Left me so unsatisfied I had to have chips on the ...

If you’re wondering what kind of an author Mike Gayle is, then look no further than the titles of the books he writes. ‘Mr Commitment’, ‘Turning Thirty’ etc. Yes, we are firmly in the land of bloke-lit, a kind of Hornby-Lite, if you will. Gayle’s characters are...

“What a disappointment”

published 12/01/2007

Didn't take too long to read

Not a good read

When I picked this book up, for some reason I thought it was written by a woman. Instead it turns out a man wrote it (the big 'Mike Gayle' across the front should really have given it away!) and I didn't like his writing style at all. The title of 'Dinner for Two' suggested that this book was...

“Perfect for a lazy night in”

published 22/01/2006

Very funny

The print makes your eyes go a bit fuzzy

This book is written by Mike Gayle who has also written for FHM, Sunday Times style and Cosmopolitan so he must be doing something right. This book is basically about a guy called Dave Harding who is quite happily going about his life with his girfriend Izzy, when one day a girl writes him a...

Super

Funny and light-hearted.

Can be slow at times.

This Mike Gayle book is interesting reading, looking at the relationship between father and daughter and husband and wife. The book shows teh consequences of a one night stand and how they can surprise you years down the line. The book kept me gripped and was a good page turner without being too...

Humerous, with a dollop of life

I have been a fan of Mike Gayle for a while now, and have read most of his books. Though I enjoyed this, it wasn't up to the same standard as Mr Commitment. This is the story of Dave Harding, who writes for a music magazine, whilst his wife Izzy works for the trendy womens magazine Femme. They...

i thought this book was great as with all mike gayle's other books. he tends to have quite a dry humour and sometimes states a fact more than anything but if you are into the book enough you can pretty much imagine the guys face as he says things so it will make you giggle at the dryness of some...
