"Whether the men pathetically recall their failed dating attempts or are celebrating their record number of dumps as learned experiences, these witty, comical approaches to being dumped are sure to entertain anyone who has entered the world of dating." (Publishers Weekly)
a disappointment from really talented comedy writers. Just seemed an excuse to use profanity and, in some cases, some really unappetizing imagery. This is the 3rd Hachette audio that I've purchased (others by Stephen Colbert and Amy Sedaris who I like too) and I haven't liked any of them. The abridged version probably doesn't help either..
Avid "reader" of history - military and with a more British slant the past few years. Rarely read novels but Anthony Powell's DTMoTime zomg
credit time had come and this time I learned my lesson by wasting money instead of a credit on something like this....if you can relate to that then you are a real deal audible.com book warrior. Not too well put together and I found the stories pretty lame. Meh -ditto.
"Boring, Boring Boring"
Stories that were actually funny or in some way insightful. This is an attempt by a series of so-so writers to replicate Hornby's High Fidelity - a feat with Hornby himself has not been able to do since that book.
Made it funny, or not written it at all.
Narrative was reasonable, but nothing special.
Pretty much all of them. Only 1 story was worth the 10 minutes listening to.
Good on Audible for offering a credit back in exchange for this book. Otherwise it would have been a total waste. Don't buy it,
