Editorial Reviews

Review

'The Last Girlfriend On Earth is silly, surreal, sometimes sad and always laugh-out-loud funny. This collection will have you giggling/crying/squirming in recognition, and wondering what exactly Simon Rich has eaten to dream all this stuff up ... pulls off the tough trick of being both heart-warming and hilarious - it's a must-read if you've ever so much as had a crush on someone' Heat 'Pithy, occasionally bonkers' Time Out 'Truly hilarious' Eva Wiseman, Observer --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

It has about 30 short stories and each one is better than the other.

I loved the short stories in this book, great when you need a quick read prior to going to bed.

This might possibly be one of the funniest story collections I've ever read.

This book is simple and overall entertaining, but misses the mark on about half of the stories. Some were VERY funny - I really enjoyed the missed dog connections, the condom story, and "I love Girl" to name a few. There were several that were really just sad and not even in a darkly funny way. "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus" started with dark humor and ended with simple and depressing bitterness.

Good for some tastes maybe, but not one I'll re-read cover to cover. That being said - I will probably recommend for friends to borrow and read the few that were great,but will not suggest that they purchase the book.

I saw Simon Rich at a NY reading and was in tears laughing when Michael Ian Black read the Cave Boy love story. Bought the book and have been equally entertained by the other stories. Impressive range of styles;very creative... solid, witty, and sincere.

Lots of good ideas in here, the kind of things that make a writer say "I wish I'd thought of that!"

The condom in the wallet was hilarious. Loved the tough talking metro card. Some not so funny, some Into farcical fantasy. Good for a laugh.

I think perhaps this book was a little overhyped. If I came to it with no expectations I might have rated it higher. I found a lot of the stories a little bit shallow or facile. But it was clever and funny and well written.

An interesting writing style, but rather pedestrian for my taste. I am sure it will please some readers, but not me. Nice try.

Some stories were quite enjoyable, other were meh. I have enjoyed these as parts of Selected Shorts, but to read a collection just shows the weakness of much of the writing.
