Jack Rossiter. I'm twenty-seven years old, single, and live with my best mate Matt. Matt and I started hanging out when we were eight. Life was simpler then. Our idea of fashion was polyester. I told him I wanted to be a spy and he asked me who I'd marry. I imagined falling in love with a girl so perfect I couldn't even guess her name. Things have changed since then. I did fall in love for a while but it didn't work out. And single is good, single is fun.
Sometimes in my darker moments I've thought about applying to go on Blind Date. 'She's gorgeous, she's from London, come in Amy Crosbie!' (Wolf whistling and applause.) Actually it's a bit of a worry. I think it's my warped way of telling myself something's got to change. It's been six months since I last had sex. Six months! I mean, I've got my own flat, I've got A levels - so come on down Mr Right. At least it would get my mother off my back.
Now find out what happens when they meet each other ...

This is a great novel. It is a bit predictable but it is great to read both points of views on a relationship. Jack is absolutely adorable in his struggle against the dreaded 'commitment.' While Amy is so relatable with all her insecurities. A witty and new look on love in the 90s. An easy read and enchanting book. I totally recommend this.Was this review helpful?

I loved this book! I think I have read it about 10 times now. I first read it while I was studying abroad in Scotland, and I think that this book accurately shows what love and relationships, and everyday life, for that matter, is like for the young Londoners in this day and age. I laughed, I was turned on by their words, I nearly cried at the worst part. It made, and still makes, me yearn for the life that only they could lead.Was this review helpful?

If you are young, and especially if you are in love with London, this is a must read! With so many references to pubs, sights and neighborhoods, this book is so much fun to read and makes you wanna go back to London town!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
