I laughed out loud with this one.

I know a couple people who think this is the funniest book ever. I found it amusing and charming and well-written, but not hilarious. It's worth a read.

I just love this book. It is so absurd, so ridiculous, and so funny, yet most adults can see similar situations in their lives.

The ultimate situation comedy. Jim Dixon is my new hero.

This is an excellent read. Reminds me of David Lodge or Stephen Fry.

Dixon fell silent again, reflecting, not for the first time, that he knew absolutely nothing whatsoever about other people or their lives.
