If you’ve ever read any of Danny Wallace’s writing then you’ll know what to expect here. He has a cracking sense of humour and a certain style of writing that reminds of good bloggers, only Wallace was writing before blogging was really a thing.
In this book, we see a year in his life through the awkward tales he tells of some of the bizarre social situations he manages to get himself into, from telling a woman that her baby looked like Hitler to having a child of his own and going along to parenting shows with his wife.
All of these stories are true, which makes them that little bit funnier, and they’re also easy to relate to whether you’re male or female, so long as you know what it’s like to be awkward at times and to have days where you just can’t adult anymore.
Overall then, this is one of the few books that I’ve read this year that made me laugh out loud, and even though it’s no longer new on the market, it’s aged well and reads like a new release. The writing is concise and entertaining, and it’s a genuine pleasure to read, whether you read it in one go or whether you space it out on the commute. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone – so go get it!
