    Forty million people in the US have tried Internet dating, which means 40 million people have probably gone on some pretty crappy dates. Not a Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is about one guy who experienced more than his fair share. Brian Donovan, a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR, and Chapelle's Show, has been on over 100 Internet dates in a genuine search for love and happiness.

    Erin - Audible says: "Dating in New York is a Horrible Crapshoot."

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author tried too hard to be funny. Sometimes came off very judgmental in an awkward and overbearing way. For example, when he describes the question on OK Cupid about letting someone cut you in bed. Hey, I'm not into that either, but the author just beat this idea to death and really thought he was being funny about it. So much so that it made me acutely aware of his difficult attempts to turn a mildly funny situation into a knee-slapping one. These incidences were obvious, really felt forced, and turned me off for the rest of the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brian Donovan again?

    Maybe.
