2013 International Book Award Finalist for Literary Fiction.
"If you mine this brilliantly written story down to its core, you'll find a message on the value of repentance and forgiveness in our shared world."
Roger Wright -- Fictionique"Written in such a fresh style that you practically expect the typeface to rub off your fingers like wet ink. Blumenthal has a Woody Allen-like ear for dialogue." --The Kindle Book Review
"Blumenthal has a jaundiced eye and a wonderfully ironic style" -- L.A. Daily News
"Reminded me of the cult classic High Fidelity by Nick Hornby -- The Book Nook Club
"... a fun dive into one man's past... Very much recommended." -- The Midwest Book Review
"...falls somewhere between American Pie, Crazy, Stupid Love and The Forty Year-Old Virgin. A true pleasure to read" -- Daniel Boucher, The NovelBlog
"A delightful tale about a man's personal journey to understand his past. Highly recommended." -- Great Minds Think Aloud Book Club
"Blumenthal's bumbling main character has wit, and there are moments of definite charm in the dialogue." -- Publisher's Weekly
"With a nod to Denis Leary’s Bad Boy movie, Three and a Half Virgins is an amusing character study of a man looking back at his transgressions towards women." -- Harriet Klausner, Mainstream Fiction
