Summary

After 10 years together, Charlie Mansell has been dumped by his live-in girlfriend, Sarah. All he wants to do is wallow in misery, but mates Andy and Tom have a better idea: a week of sun, sea, and souvlaki in Malia, party capital of the Greek islands. But Charlie and his mates aren't 18 any more. Or even under 30. And it shows....

Not my fav but an enjoyable easy listen

Not my favourite Mike Gayle book but enjoyable nonetheless.
Some of the characters are a little annoying but that’s what I like - it makes them more real.
I can understand some may find this a little slow as nothing really happens as such but again, that’s part of Mike gayles charm I believe, as he can make even the regular, normality of life into a feel good story.

Second great book I’ve read by mike Gayle

I’m never, for whatever reason, drawn to male authors or narrators unless a biography but I make exception to that with mike Gayle, who’s characters are always multi- layered and complex as we are as humans- does not strive to make characters morally perfect, but whom make mistakes and reflect and grow on these as part of the story. Off to choose my third by this author, would recommend
