Hilarious, revealing, and sarcastic, Love Monkey is ultimately a sociological and psychological study of the male species on the hunt, and it's a gas.
It begins with a long section that is breathlessly, can-you-top this funny, as the narrator Tom Farrell casts a gimlet eye on his snack-food and remote-control-littered bachelor hovel and invites us to laugh along with his sadly hilarious world. (A typical breakfast-after a long, Scotch-influenced night that may or may not have involved feeling sorry for himself while playing Simon and Garfunkel records-is a gallon of water and some Tylenol). He's a guy who worries that his generation-the lamest generation, the one that won no wars and launched no IPOs-will be remembered only for non-black tuxedoes, Justine Bateman and Men at Work. And his is a world where Bugs Bunny is sometimes his only friend and his occasional efforts to reach out and connect with somebody, anybody, only result in more confusion. First up is a German American paralegal, the kind who writes angry letters to the New York Times and has a habit of taking things entirely too seriously; Tom is strongly attracted to her (worrying at the same time that he could never date her because his Jewish friends would freak out), but despairs when he discovers she can't tell one Beach Boys song from the next, and has never even heard of the band's founding genius Brian Wilson. Oh well. She doesn't seem interested anyway. Moving right along.Read more ›

My title for this review is misleading, because this book is actually irritating enough to keep you awake. What garbage. Sexist, juvenile, self-indulgent garbage. Read morePublished on April 5, 2013 by BDP

Time spent reading this book is time that I will never get back. Steer clear. Watching paint dry is more entertaining and insightful than reading this piece of literary garbage.Published on March 18, 2013 by Nicole
Not a well written book! I would not recommend this book to anyone i know. Lacking a plot that is actually worth reading. I didn't even finish the book it was that awful.Published on March 15, 2013 by stephanie
This book is a waste of time. Author should most certainly look into a new career. Maybe start looking for a restaurant job?Published on March 11, 2013 by lovey
