Review

From the Belle Epoque Book Blog, Review by Emma Hunneyball

The premise is simple enough, guy likes to play the field, but isseemingly unable to password-protect his computer.   The protagonist,Adam, is a man to both love and hate. Smooth, affluentand charming his attitude towards his "roster" girls, and his cynicalpick-up routine initially made me despise him; but his honesty and "I am what I am" philosophy was both engaging and endearing.   Bethany,Adam's love interest, is the voice of convention. She falls inlove with Adam and tries to persuade him to adopt a life of monogamy.Bethany's main concern is that she not appear "judgmental". Adam triesto show her that being judgmental is a natural part of being human, butthis minor difference foreshadows much greater divisions to come. In the first half of the book Mike depicts Bethany as someone who is extremely beautiful and intelligent, a paragon of female beauty. In the secondhalf he deconstructs that image, showing Bethany to be as flawed as many of the characters she tries-and fails- not to judge.
All in all, a wonderful, funny, challenging exploration of the rules of romantic relationships.  I loved this book, 5/5
