****This is a review of The Diary Of An Expectant Father ****
This is an excellent book.
The protagonist of this book is Graham, a full-time career idiot, who meets a girl on a works night out. Despite his previous lack of success in his relationships with women (not surprising given some of his views and his very funny antics), he finds himself, albeit reluctantly, as the father to her child.
At times funny, sad, full of pathos, remorse, understanding and fear, Graham faithfully records the events in his life right up to the moment of birth, as though his diary was being read by aliens at some point in the future. This, as much as anything else in the book, points to his obvious immaturity.
In some senses this book epitomises all that is wrong with society today, unexpected sex leading to a relationship and a baby, rather than the relationship leading the way. But for all that, it is a funny, interesting (and quite short) read.
Can't wait for the next in the series.
****This is a review of The Diary Of A Hapless Father: months 0-3 by Pete Sortwell****
This is an excellent book, and is the follow up to The Diary Of An Expectant Father
Like it's predecessor, this is a well-crafted story, bringing to life the characters, telling the story through the eyes of our hero Graham, as he begins coming to terms with the birth of his son, Charlie.
I found this book to be ever so slightly less funny that the previous one, but it does deal, often in excruciating detail, with the trials and tribulations of having a new-born child to look after. It is, by turns, full of joy, tiredness, happiness, tiredness, pathos, and tiredness The story accurately depicts the life-changing effects that fatherhood bring.
The book ends on a cliffhanger, so hopefully there witll be a third in the series in the not too distant future.
5 stars (again).
The Diary of An Expectant Father
Victor meldrew eat your heart out.this is definitely meldrew at a younger age , would make a good sitcom he is full of fear and paranoia, moans like a good one , would make anyone make sure their contraception is up to speed:). It will be interesting to see how he copes in the following months a book I will be buying to see if the moaning fart has mellowed lol. A must read.
The Diary Of A Hapless Father: Months 0-3
Portrayal of one mans struggle with the early months of becoming a father. Filled with the trials and fears of having a new life to care for. Some humorous moments but also has a serious message. I've read the first book and enjoyed that and was not disappointed with this sequel looking forward to the next one.
Diary of an Expectant Father is exactly that. You won't find any murders, explosions or alien artefacts within these pages.
As the title suggests it consists of a number of diary entries. What the author has delivered with this series so far is an interesting blend of the comic, the informative and some sweet aaahh moments. Both books so far have been competently written, thoughtful and well edited. The author must also be given credit for researching his subject well.
