The Importance of Being a Bachelor by Mike Gayle.Importance of Being a Bach

(Hodder & Stoughton, 2011.)

A bit about the book…..

Adam, Luke and Russell Bachelor are three brothers who, as their surname suggests are anything but settled…

Adam is addicted to The Wrong Kind of Girls; Luke bears the scars of a savage divorce; and Russell’s love life contains nothing but heartache. 

When, months shy of his 40th wedding anniversary, their dad announces that he’s leaving their mum to try his hand at the single life the boys are thrown into turmoil. Now as well as sorting out their own complicated love lives, the Bachelors have got to sort out their parents’ too…or face losing the one thing they always count on.

Novel Kicks’ verdict: The Importance of Being a Bachelor: 

This book is classic Mike Gayle. I found it to be warm, funny and an insight into the fact that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s disappeared. I wanted to bang the boys heads together but found myself caring about the Bachelor boys, despite their behaviour towards the women in their lives. 

It’s rare that I read a book in one sitting but this book was one of the exceptions.. I couldn’t put it down. A wonderful book; one I really enjoyed reading.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
