Review: 76. Ex-Girlfriends United by Matt Dunn...

June 16, 2011
I thought the premise of a cad who had to go back and apologize to the girls he'd dated and dumped, would make for a humorous read, especially from a British author...

drey's thoughts:
Matt Dunn's Ex-Girlfriends United is a funny tongue-in-cheek look at a guy who's trying to get his best buddy to change his caddish ways. It's not too difficult to start the process--by apologizing to his exes--especially when they've rated him badly on a website, but how much does the process stick with the guy?

I expected this to be more about Dan (the cad). After all, it's Dan's ex-girlfriends who've torpedoed his chances at adding to that loooooooooong list... Instead, it's more about Eddie, who starred in Dunn's previous novel Ex-Boyfriend's Handbook, and his confusion about his current relationship when his ex-girlfriend shows up out of the blue. Wanting him back, of course.

There's angst, which I'm not used to from guys. There's denial, which I am. And there's humor, which makes everything better.

drey's rating: Ok. I wasn't enamored with Dan, and Eddie was a bit too wishy-washy for my liking. But I did appreciate this addition to the chick-lit/contemporary romance genre, as you hardly get much that's written from the guy's point of view.
