For some unknown reason, I do seem to stick to books written by women. This is probably because I mainly read the Chick-Lit genre most, and these are generally written by women, but I will read books written by men if they appeal. One such writer is the hilarious Matt Dunn. I read one of his books called "From Here to Paternity" (reviewed on Dooyoo!) in Mauritius last year and loved it so when I found out he had a new book out last month, I grabbed a copy. But I then found out it's a sequel to one of his previous books, The Ex-boyfriend's Handbook, so I had to hot-foot it down to the library to read the prequel first as I didn't want to spoil my enjoyment of ...

This is another of the novels that I picked up at my local library to read as I await the arrival of our baby! When browsing in the library I was pretty sure that I had read a previous review about this author and this book and from what I remembered it had been well praised, so I felt it was worth giving it a go. I think what drew my attention to it, was the fact that it was in the chick lit section but was written by a male - Matt Dunn, who has written a bestselling novel 'Best Man' which Ihave yet to see in the my local library. This book is written in a diary form, although not necessarily like Bridget Jones on a daily basis. The story revolves around ... Read the complete review

There aren't many books about relationships and romance that are written by men its mostly a women dominated genre so it was refreshing to find this book and see what it's like from a mans perspective. I really enjoyed reading this book, it well written easy to read, funny, and heart warming. It's very realistic and you find yourself going on a journey of self discovery with the main character. The book lets you into this characters life and you begin to emphathise with his situation. The general plot is that having been dumped by his long term girlfriend Edward Middleton has get back in the game by making himself appear attractive to the opposite sex. You see his ...

The Ex Boyfriends Handbook by Matt Dunn is a rather Amusing and at times touching novel that will strike a chord with both men and women alike. The Book follows the plight of Edward, who recently dumped by his long term girlfriend, with the message its not me it's you, starts up on a mission of self improvement in order to win her back. Aided by his Best friend, the good looking, Dumb, Narcissistic and wonderfully un-politically correct TV presenter Dan he has to learn what it was that got him dumped and what he can do to fix it. The book is a must for women looking to understand the inner workings of a mans mind and a great hand book for men ... Read the complete review

I picked this book up in a bundle of used second hand books and so it was not a direct choice on my part, however it looked intriguing and very unlike anything I had ever read before. I was a little unsure about the book being written by a male, yet choosing the subject of girlfriends, dating and so on - a topic most normally treated by female writers. IHowever, think this added a certain appeal. The opening chapter sets the scene for the rest of the book and from page one I was hooked. The main character sets on a quest to recapture the love from his ex girlfriend by embarking upon a strict diet and fitness regime to regain his lost sex appeal and figure. Amusing ..
