This was a great read for anyone who likes gambling, drinking, womanizing and other such degerate behaviour. It made me laugh out loud several times, and the ending is both surprising and hysterical! Highly recommended.

It's not that this retelling isn't good, it's just that I wasn't in the mood to read it that's why it took me almost 2 months to finish this.

The author's recounting of some incidents were hilarious and can't help but be gross due to a sequence of events. This weekend getaway of four friends with diverse personalities and tastes was like a train wreck waiting to happen.

Some behavior were indeed not becoming a gentleman but it was somehow explained and justified. In some instances, I find myself agreeing or seeing things the same way, especially when it comes to physical features and first impressions. One can't help but be candid about judging others on the way they look, not when one is in the city of sin.

This tale clearly shows that in Vegas, there's a certain freedom to do whatever one wants, without consideration of others or their feelings. For example, being rude, inciting fights, heavy drinking and use of illegal substance.

In the almost end, there was a climax of great proportions (pun intended). After all the adventures and mishaps, it's understandable why "it (won't) stay in Vegas".

'It Doesn't Stay in Vegas' is the type of books that once you start reading, you can't put it down. Mainly due to the storyline. The way it played out made me shake my head a lot and laugh out loud at the scenarios these men got themselves into. Each one had completely different personalities, yet they complimented each other- to an extent. I loved how they justified their behavior and their beliefs. I actually found myself agreeing with some of it. This book is a good add to your tbr list.

Hilarious! I really enjoyed this book and the crazy shenanigans this crew encounters. Very unique humour. Cant wait to see whats in store for the follow up. The saga of the unorthodox gentleman is a great piece of comedy. If you liked the book you have to check out the website on the back cover. UTXGENT.com.....ridiculous

This is a great read if you're looking for something fun and easy to read. While the “night on the town” portions tend to be the most exciting, some of the book’s most amusing parts take place during situations that would ordinarily be considered dull thanks to the Unorthodox Gentleman's strange outlook on life. It’s an entertaining story with funny dialogue between the four main characters who can’t help but to stay out of trouble. I recommend this novel to anyone who’s planning a trip to Vegas, or anyone else who's not easily offended and is looking for something lighthearted to read.

Format: Paperback
This author is a mix between David Sedaris and Hunter S. Thompson. This is not a book to read if you've got somewhere to go because once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down.
The story takes the reader on a trip from Canada to Vegas, where four friends engage in a pre-planned vacation of drunkenness, sex and fun. Instead, not all goes as planned and the book is filled with one comedy of errors after another.
This isn't a book for the faint of heart, and it has graphic details that could be raunchy, but aren't, because the author breaks it up with humor- and I mean humor. This book will make you laugh out loud. The author uses clever and witty dialogue throughout the book and can turn something so mundane as a credit card limit increase into something hysterical.
Throughout the wild ,edgy plots, we are exposed to the sensitive side of the narrator, who feels guilt and/or remorse for things he or his friends have done and the author does a great job of balancing the "good boy, bad boy" angle.

I highly recommend this book!

How to sum this up this book? It surely reminded me of the great times that can happen in Vegas. The author has a great way with words and the thoughts that truly happen when living it up in Las Vegas. I found myself laughing out loud at times and people looking at me strangely. I didn't care. I just kept on reading as I had to see what happened next. Great read. Well Written. I will be recommending this to my friends

If I were illiterate I would have learned to read if only to experience the magic that is this literary marvel. Studies show you burn an extreme amount of calories while laughing; I'm down six pounds since I started reading, and I'm not even half-way through.
