I didn't really get on with this. There were a few laugh-out-loud moments, but they were few, and far between. I found most of the book quite miserable! Not the Danny Wallace I was expecting.

The fact it was all made up took a lot of the shine away from the book for me, especially after loving Danny's previous books. The plot is definitely in the style of Yes Man, or Join Me - "Man goes on crazy adventure with comedy sidekick", but he's chosen to write a sad book with quite a cheesy ending, and unlikeable characters!

If you'd never read any of his previous books, you'd have a different experience, but reading this and expecting another Yes Man will only end in disappointment!
