New York City, May 2000. The Internet bubble has burst, and Evan's boss fires him with an email. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse. Fortunately, Evan meets someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own.
To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends into a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure. With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.
I liked this book and I found myself chuckling many times throughout the book. I loved how the story starts with a set of friends and then switches to another set of friends in order to build up the characters and give us their back-story. Then through a series of incidents totally irrelevant from the other, one man from each group end up in the ER with the same type of injury to his penis.
It was hard for me though to get through some of the story because I found myself unconnecting from the characters. I'm not sure if it was because the story was told from a man's POV or that I never got into the whole "Sex in the City" story.
But again, the story in general was funny and the men took NYC by storm!
If want a man's perspective about dating, being dumped, being embarrassed in a bar or just plain emotions about women, then this is a must read for you!
