Kurzbeschreibung

14. Februar 2009
In this spoof, Bob Sullivan, a jilted husband, sets off to explore the world, experience a meaningful connection with the divine, and rediscover his passion--which amounts to a drinking bender across Ireland, a glitz-laden tour of Las Vegas, and the hedonistic pleasure palaces of Thailand.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Genius. Pure Genius. Wish I'd Thought Of It First. 23. März 2009
Von A. Revel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Three words for this hysterical, witty, GENIUS novel. 1: Oh. 2: My. 3: God. A satire on the novel Eat Pray Love (Elizabeth Gilbert), comedian writer Andrew Gottlieb nails the angry husband who takes a year off dedicated to drinking, gambling and, well, f@#king. The protagonist, Bob Sullivan, is in Ireland when he notes that his ex-wife was on "some kind of whirlwind transcontinental spiritual journey. Yet one more idea of mine that she copied that I'll never get any credit for." (page 51). The intrinsic connections to the Eat Pray Love story are masterful without being overwhelming or obvious - so much so, this story would stand alone if you'd never even heard of Eat Pray Love. If every story has two sides, Drink Play F@#k is a convincing version of a scorned husband's tale of a marriage break-up and subsequent quests to discover what really matters in life: happiness.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Adolescent 12. Februar 2010
Von Stephen T. Hopkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Parody can be the funniest of all types of humor, so it was with high expectations that when I saw the book cover of Andrew Gottlieb's, Drink, Play, [...], as a match to Elizabeth Gilbert's popular Eat, Pray, Love, I picked it up with relish. I had given Gilbert a two-star rating, and never bothered to write a review. Following a divorce, protagonist Bob Sullivan decides to let himself go loose for the first time in his life, and see what happens. His first step was to drink, and he did that with gusto in Ireland, meeting compatible characters and telling stories to all who would listen. I wish this book had such gusto, but the drinking episode came across as maudlin. The pace picked up when Bob heads to Vegas to play, and along the way meets a guru who guides him through the Vegas games. The gambling, golfing and playing had little humor and unexceptional stories. At just the right time, the guru suggests the pleasures of Thailand, and Bob ends up in a remote resort to enjoy great physical satisfaction, until a car accident. While I laughed at times, there just wasn't enough laughter to make the full parody work. By the end of the book, I couldn't care less what happened to Bob.

Rating: One-star (Read only if your interest is strong)

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't let the title suck you in...... 15. März 2010
Von D. Kelley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was looking for a book to read while on my last beach vacation, and I was lured in by the title "Drink, Play, F@#k. I had not heard of the book "Eat Pray Love", and so I had no basis on the layout, or if it tried to satire the original, if indeed that was the intention.
As noted in a previous review...I too, was hoping for a little more energy, creative storytelling, and "guy talk", but what we received was 38 chapters with no cohesiveness, forced gambling metaphors, and upper-echelon frivolous disrespect for money with the occasional "Dennis Miller-like" caveat on Monday night football....which as we all know does not work.

I stopped reading this book 4 times, but had a 5 hour flight on the way back, I was so bored I finished it.
Here, I will summarize the book into 3 chapters:
Chapter 1 - My wife left me, I have enough money so I went to Ireland and got drunk daily.
Chapter 2 - My wife is still not with me, I have enough money so I went to Las Vegas, made frivoulous wagers, got drunk a lot, and played golf.
Chapter 3 - My wife is still not with me, I have enough money so I went to Thailand, to a ridiculously expensive and exclusive resort, had sex with a young woman, found my morals and my future ex-wife.

I would have tried to sell this book on Amazon, but I threw it in the trash, as I unpacked.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Expected Steak, Served Tripe... 11. August 2009
Von Dan B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The premise of this book is great: parody Eat, Pray, Love. Few books are as ripe for parody as that one. I mean, how can anyone mess that up? Well, Gottlieb did. What he delivers is a sterilized, homogenized, made-for-TV tale of a guy I suspect is really patterned after John Glenn when he was a younger man, but on estrogen. It is obvious this story panders to the female book-buying audience and Bob Sullivan comes off as a made-acceptable character who apologizes constantly for being male. There's no other explanation for the constant I'm-not-really-that-guy disclaimers that quickly become Sullivan's mantra. Well, if he's not that guy then why was he written as the main character? Wouldn't a parody mean he should be the antithesis of the lady from Eat, Pray, Love? Bob Sullivan's friends are right out of a screen writing 101 class, becoming Bob's bad-boy, yet acceptable, yet wouldn't want to marry, guides to the protagonist's journey into his supposed debauchery; the debauchery that never seems to pick up steam or muster any credibility. But there was no real debauchery, except for maybe the frat-boy drinking, which Gottlieb could get away with without turning off a female audience. And there's no f@#king. No there wasn't. A brief yet somehow made-acceptable tryst with the girl from India, and then he falls madly in love while laid up in his sick bed. Yeah, that's real debauchery tempered with an eye toward book sales to the fairer sex. Why am I so disappointed with this book? Because I expected to be at least slightly entertained and never thought I would have my intelligence insulted with such a trite, backpeddling and poorly constructed attempt at parody. And for believing, once again, some glowing reviews without checking to see what other books the reviewers have reviewed. Stupid me.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Mild! Not nearly as edgy as title implies... 30. April 2010
Von R. Dush - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Not a bad book, but not great either. With so many other good books out there, don't waste your time with this one.

Before reading, I briefly glanced at some of the Amazon reviews; most were only lukewarm. Thinking the other reviews might have been a bit harsh, I gave the book the benefit of the doubt, purchased, and read. Mistake.

With a word like "f@#k" in the title, I expected the book to be a bit more edgy. What the book delivered was much milder- a recently divorced, middle age man going through somewhat of a midlife crises in the form of one year across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand. Sounds promising and full of potential, right? Nothing nearly as provocative as you might expect. Most of the potentially edgy scenarios are glossed over or omitted entirely. To be fair, some of the vignettes are OK, but again, everything is overall very mild.
