Kurzbeschreibung

Dan was beginning to think he'd never find the right woman. And then he fell for the wrong one.


After a disastrous New Year's Eve, when even being mistaken for a tragic widower can't get him into bed, Dan Taylor declared his retirement from the world of dating. But his best friend Rob and his wife Hannah, aren't letting him give up so easily. Taking him on as their very own special project, they start breaking him down to build him up again.


But their belief that they can re-build him is put to the test from the start, and it's while Rob and Hannah put him through unwanted makeovers, 'flirting practice', and late-night date post mortems, that Dan realises that life as a couple can be twice as difficult.


Now Dan's not sure what to despair about the most -

That he's unable to complete a date without involving the emergency services?

That Rob and Hannah's marriage may be on the rocks?

Or that the woman of his dreams might be the wife of his best friend?

Doran is staying at the level of rather unremarkable and superficial development of the novel's characters whilst driving the punchlines so hard they become predictable. The way Dan's friends and office mates, as well as the work performed there is described is a rather wearisome carricature of how chave 20-somethings might think and behave. To me, this is all rahter far fetched as is the principal theme of the book, the hero's obsession with dating a girl that might like him. I guess the aim of the author is to make him endearing in his struggles but this becomes somewhat forced and repetitive as the story plods on. Doran comes across as a someone who strives to be a contemporary Oscar Wilde but lacks the dose of subtlety and wit that would be required to get somewhere not even close...

Neal has a knack for creating very funny descriptions and scenes. I had many laughs throughout the whole book and had to force myself to put it down at night.

BEWARE

This book is only for women (and some men who can laugh about men).

I enjoyed it very much - thank you Dan Taylor!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Roller coaster of emotions! 27. August 2014
Von Chubby Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
*4.5 Stars* Rounded Up

At first this story was kind of confusing but after a page or two everything is cleared up. This novel is very funny and I was laughing out loud at moments which is rare because I usually just chuckle here or there but I just couldn't help myself with this book.

Yes, the story itself is admittedly a bit predictable but it is written very well and keeps your attention. The path it takes to get there isn't necessarily as predictable as the ending. It's not all humor though because there are some more serious moments and at times heartbreaking ones. I didn't physically cry but came close a few times.

Rating: PG-13 or up (There isn't anything too graphic. There is profanity and sex but it isn't described.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Don't give up on Dan Taylor 9. April 2014
Von James Bailey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a fun and fairly fast read. It's not necessarily the deepest book you'll run across, but it's not really meant to be. I bought it looking for something in the Nick Hornby range, but this didn't quite fill that bill. The best way I can describe it is by calling it a "chick lit" book for guys. (Though women would probably like it just as well, it's not really just a guy's book, it's just written from a guy's perspective.)

Dan Taylor is, to put it mildly, not smooth with the ladies. He's a nice guy, but that's not enough. His two best friends, the married Rob and Hannah, resolve to find him someone, but he must do as they say and go out with whomever they fix him up with. Absurdity ensues in the form of horrific blind dates, some of which end with police interrogations.

Dan eventually finds love, but not where one suspects he will at the start of the book. I don't want to give spoilers, because the second half of the book is where things get good and it's best if you don't know what's going on ahead of time.

About a third of the way through I was having a few doubts. The book at times gets a bit dialogue heavy, almost as if you're reading a screenplay of a lightweight sitcom. But I felt like it redeemed itself down the stretch. It's well paced and there was enough tension in the last few chapters to keep me wanting to know how it ended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A funny, enjoyable read.. 13. November 2013
Von V L McCabe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is not my normal genre at all, but I really enjoyed it. Very readable, so funny in parts that I kept my husband awake with my giggles, and is just a good read. Also, if you have ever spent time in London, this will make you miss all its funny quirks!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very funny read 3. Dezember 2013
Von Fiona Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the authors debut novel and I have to say I am very impressed with it. It is a very funny, sometimes laugh out loud, story of Dan Taylor's attempts at finding a girlfriend, with the, sometimes not so welcome, help of his 2 best friends, Rob and Hannah.They decide that Dan needs their help in finding a girlfriend. This is the start of some hilarious 'dates'. Dan isn't totally helpless, but unfortunately he seems to constantly get himself into situations which end up showing him in a very bad light.

how his best side. One date ends up with him at the hospital, another with him being arrested! He seriously messes up almost anything he tries to do.

I kinda guessed where the story was going to go, but I honestly didn't see the ending we got!

The story flows really well, it kept my interest throughout, and I really wanted Dan to get his happy ending. Does he get that happy ending? Or do his actions mean he will remain single? I highly recommend you read this story to find out, you won't be disappointed!
