So much more than expected....

You know how sometimes you just want a bite and you end up having a great meal? That is this book. I wanted something light going into the summer dating 'season' and can't say enough about this book and Mr. Smith's writing. He is clever and insightful and you care for him yet see why others can loathe him. In short, he is any guy who has ever dated beyond high school (or at least what we hope to be). This book is genuinely funny, laugh-out-loud, not-to-read-in-public funny. But there is a heart, and for those of questionable men who do feel we somewhere nurture a heart of gold, this encapsules part of the struggle. My copy is already on its 4th lendee (sorry about the royalties, Kyle).

Smith's book starts out great, and I was encouraged to begin reading it based on some of the glowing reviews. I must admit that the beginning was funny and i couldnt put the book down, but towards the end the self-depricating humor turned into whining. While I would still recommend reading the book i'd take it with a grain of salt

    Fans Strike Back

    I was initially taken by the idea of Love Monkey, however after reading the book felt Kyle Smith to be a truly awful writer. Despite the low price, I would have a greater feeling of satisfaction had I eaten the four dollars I spent. Save your money for the Dollar Menu folks...

    NOT RECOMMENDED!

    Kyle Smith's debut novel, with its insipid plot and self-absorbed protagonist, is pretty unlikeable if you ask me. It's badly written, for one thing. I think this reads like it was ripped from the author's journals or diaries. You want something substantial in a novel, even a more commercial one, and this one just doesn't deliver. Big thumbs down. Maybe next time.
