“A pleasure to read. As Huey Long said about himself, 'sui generis.' I can already see the marquee: GEORGE 'n' HILLY TONIGHT!" --Tom Wolfe

I wish more people had the courage to write like this. A combination of Dominick Dunne and Salinger sprinkled with a humanized sense of self deprecation and humor. Perhaps not for the Dan Brown fans of the world, but definitely for those who appreciate a thought provoking read. Keep them coming Mr. Gurley. Two thumbs way up.

I picked this book up at a friend's house and could not put it down. I don't have as much time to read as I used to, so a book has got to get me right away and make me not want to turn off the bedroom reading lamp.

Gurley is an entertaining writer and very on point with his observations.

In my opinion, this book is the equivalent of Sex in the City but told from a guy's perspective and seems mostly genuine. It's totally entertaining on many levels. I don't think that I have ever really read a book about relationships from this male vantage point. How many men do you know who are straight and want to talk about their relationship in such detail... zero... right? In some ways I felt like I was spying into the male psyche. This should be required reading for women who want to know more about what the other half is thinking.

There were parts of the book where I literally flinched, laughed and got pissed off... either because it was a gross description of his apartment, a recounting of an adventure out or something so selfish that I wanted to reach into the book and shake him.

If you want an easy read, a good laugh and an authentic take on the modern relationship in the big city from a guy's perspective, this is it. It's a great departure from the chick lit that I also like to read. Two thumbs up.

I was a fan of the "George & Hilly" column in the New York Observer. This takes those columns and rounds out the story of these two misfit, star-crossed lovers. Like many of us in our 30's and 40's, George and Hilly have found the right person but are afraid to commit. Unlike most of us, they are willing to show all their flaws, foibles, idiosyncrasies and preferences. Imagining their apartment and how they interact is like being a fly on the wall and sometimes like looking in the mirror.
Gurley's writing is funny and descriptive. His honesty is powerful. He gives us an inside view into his thoughts and fears, without becoming a Woody Allen type of neurotic. Perhaps his reporter's background and Midwest upbringing allow him to be forthright about his experiences as he struggles to commit.
Best of all, George and Hilly have found their happy ending. I'm looking forward to seeing the next chapter in their lives and reading more of Gurley's writing.

For years, George's articles were my favorite part of the New York Observer. When he interviewed celebrities, his bits of the conversation were usually the most interesting part of the piece! I couldn't wait for the book, and I read it in two hours. It's the story of a hard partying reporter and his long-suffering girlfriend, and his descriptions of the ups and downs of his relationship, as well as the hilarious situations he gets himself into (hungover with a baby panda) will make you laugh, cry, want to slap him and want to give him a hug all at the same time. I wish there were more male narrators with George's sophistication, wit, and gift for spot-on observation. Bring on the movie!
