Overview

Two best friends, one killer hangover, and a whole world of badly behaved men. Let the games begin...

Gemma Barton, here -- single girl and website creator. Okay, so I’m not here to decry all men as commitment-phobes and complete dogs, but you know, sometimes they are.

Overview

Two best friends, one killer hangover, and a whole world of badly behaved men. Let the games begin...

Gemma Barton, here -- single girl and website creator. Okay, so I’m not here to decry all men as commitment-phobes and complete dogs, but you know, sometimes they are. After one more date with Mr. Oh-I-Didn’t-Tell-You-I-Was-Already-Engaged and a round of giant margaritas, my friend Sarah and I decided to make "the list": a chronicle of all the guys who’ve ever lied, cheated, or tried to have a threesome with your best friend.

Well, our little revenge website seemed like a brilliant idea at the time -- and soon disgruntled women all over the world were chiming in. It was great. Suddenly Sarah and I were stars, I had a male personal assistant, and all was right with the world. Or so I thought, until big trouble started brewing on my computer. There’s someone out there in cyberspace who’s just made me see the error of my ways. Maybe the male of the species aren’t out to get me after all. Could it be time to stop listening to my inner rage queen and start listening to my heart...?

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A first from Australian author Rushby. Almost all men are bastards. And a lot of them are on the bastard list that Gemma and Sarah have been keeping since their art-school days. Back then, with five good-looking young women sharing a house, it seemed to be raining men, resulting in lots of yearning, bed-swapping, dumping, and weeping-that's how the list got started. It boasted big bastards and small bastards, fat bastards and thin bastards, white and black and pink and purple bastards. The list is so old it's yellowed and so long the fridge magnets won't hold it up anymore. After an evening of steady drinking (the only other thing these one-dimensional characters do a lot of besides complain), Gem and Sarah decide it would be a hoot to start a new list just like it on a Web site (www.allmenarebastards.com, of course) and invite contributions from all comers. Not surprisingly, they get thousands of hits from all over the world and not a few indignant responses from the bastards themselves. Famous in her small way, Gemma appears on TV. The Web site traffic increases. Charge for space on it? Why not? Gemma can now hire something she's always wanted: a Personal Assistant. A male Personal Assistant, thank you. Chris is capable, adorable, and on top of everything. How gratifying that she can take him to her ex's wedding as a dream date. She'd hate to show up alone to smile bravely at the biggest bastard of all. What to wear? Oh, hell, a shroud would be perfect. But Chris comes to the rescue and even saves her hair with a few deft swipes of a brush and a couple of cans of hairspray. He confesses: three sisters meant he had to figure out a way to get into the bathroom, and hairdressing was it.Miracle of miracles, he's not gay. Hmm. Things are looking up. Crisp writing makes the most of a slight (and rather dated) premise.

    Better Than I Thought

    Quite honestly, I thought this book would be a bit shallow (I mean look at the title and the book cover!), but it ended up having some depth to it. In the end, it's about dealing with rejection and hurt and how incredibly difficult this is. There's a lot of fun (and funny) stuff along the way as Gemma (along with Sarah), come to terms with her pain. It's a quick, but enjoyable read.

    read this book in two days

    These girls have the greatet idea about their web site, but things do go wrong as they always do and the way they handle it is so funny. I could not put this book down for the life of me. it was so good I wish it did not have to end.
