The young blue-eyed Grigory also spreads his talent for writing into other areas, this book being another in his ‘British Chick Lit’ series – an opportunity to display not only his technical skills but also his keen gene for comedic writing. His immediate access to British humor is evident: for the 24 chapters of this book he names each for a fruit or flower or vegetable or seed, supplanting that with the genus and species name (the scientist in him wins out).
The scope of Chloe’s ‘experiments’ is summarized in the synopsis: ‘ ‘Mr Right for Kurt & My Other Experiments’ is a sequel to ‘Mr Right & Mr Wrong’. Both books are social satire and light-hearted comedies about a modern, young female scientist. Having found her Prince Charming, Chloe makes herself busy with her other project – finding Mr Right for her housemate, Kurt. Things get a little tricky when Chloe discovers a dating app for gay men, Grindr. Hilarity ensues! Meanwhile, spring is claiming London and Chloe is starting her Master’s project on bioremediation of soils at the Department of Plant Science, Imperial College, where she meets her new colleagues – sassy Zofia and a flirty hipster called Andy who, by the way, has a secret and glamorous alter ego. After a visit by a BBC TV crew to the institute, Chloe becomes a celebrity on Twitter. But glory invites disaster over a cup of tea. Gay matchmaking isn't Chloe's forte, so now what? Parties, gigs and piss-ups continue to be Chloe’s life, along with the added bonus of inhumane hours in the lab. Little does she know that the country’s top TV show is about to invite her for a chat. Surprises await.’
Pure fun from a very bright young author with a quick wit and the ability to scribe parody well. It seems whatever he decides to write, we, the readers, are the winners. Grady Harp, May 16
I was chuckling throughout this book, no doubt making people around me wonder just what had gotten into me, but this was such a breath of fresh air, a lighthearted romantic comedy in a way, full of mischief and Oops moments that will take your mind off of your daily grind.
Chloe the Heroine of the story decides to play matchmaker to help her Gay roomie and help him find his own Prince
Charming and keep him away from her own guy, she doesn't by no means do it the old fashioned searching way, that would be too straight forward. She stumbles upon a gay dating app/website Grindr and signs Kurt up. She assumes Kurt's identity and plays his role. She realises it's more complicated dating as a gay man than she first imagined. This in a way is like a comedy of errors, little does Chloe realise the mess she's heading towards.
Chloe isn't a stereotypical dumb meddling girl, she's well educated, smart and with well meaning intentions. She can't help the fact trouble seems to be headed straight for her.
Truly loved this book, I was continuously in stitches. I now want to read the first. Recommend for anyone in the need of a good giggle.
I had really high hopes for this book. I wanted it to be well written and fun and be an extremely fluffy contemporary that would get me out of my reading slump. And “Mr Right for Kurt and My Other Experiments: British chick lit” was exactly what I hoped it would be.
It’s a good book for those who are coping with something serious, but are looking for a new way of looking at the issue. I thought this book was really funny. I laughed out loud a few times and the overall plot was really light and fun.
If you find yourself in a bookstore, I highly suggest taking this book home with you, also pick up his first novel. He's an incredibly talented writer and wonderful storyteller!
Overall this was a good book! I will definitely keep a lookout for this author. I recommend it to fans of contemporary and comedy books.
