The diary entries are hilarious. Jack writes them with such an adorable sincerity that it endears you as well as make you laugh. The things he goes through with his relationship with friends, women and family are great. This novel reminded me of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones's Diary in more ways than one -- except, of course, that this is for the male set. It is also the literary version of the British TV shows Men Behaving Badly and Coupling. I give it three stars because, as hilarious and entertaining as the book is, it does get a bit tedious after a while. Then again, that could have been just me. Twentysomething should be given a whirl if women want to read about what goes on inside a guy's head. Iain Hollingshead has a great eye for ironic humor and I do look forward to reading his future books.
Refreshingly witty, this novel never fails to keep you laughing. As a twenty-something myself, I can't quite relate to the title character, Jack Lancaster, and his quarter-life crisis, but I certainly could be entertained by it. From his snarky comments to his Latin-quoting middle-aged boss, to his (oh-so-hidden) sappy romanticism, Jack has everything --and nothing-- figured out.
Reading this during my daily commute into the city, I couldn't help but laugh at loud during some of the most ridiculous (and yet, strangely relatable) passages. Definitely a fun must-read.

Easy and fun/ funny read! Great for a quarter life crisis - not as any "how to" guide but as a consolation that "at least we're not that guy".Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
Oh, this book! I was on the fence of whether or not I should order this because it is a man's view of his quarter life crisis, complete with marijuana on the front cover. Read morePublished on November 12, 2010 by ABS
