Have you ever had a relationship break-up? Yes? Then Ben Adams' debut rom-com, Six Months to Get a Life, is the book for you.
According to his ex, Graham Hope has got a big ego and a small penis. We aren't sure if that's why they got divorced, but they did.
Six Months to Get a Life follows Graham as he comes to terms with being divorced. Will he get over his ex? Will he play a meaningful role in his boys' lives? Will his friends take him under their wing? More importantly, will he ever have sex again?
WARNING: if you are looking for a sanctimonious self-hep book, then Six Months to Get a Life is not for you.
Playful, enjoyable and funny page turner of a read. Six Months to Get a Life is a book that I would recommend to anyone who likes a good laugh and a great plot. The characters are so real and so full of life. Ben Adams does a great job in developing the characters and their personality match what I thought this book would be.
Like a lot of people, Ben went to school, then college and eventually grew up and got a responsible job, a house and a family. And then his mid-life crisis kicked in.
Realising that life was in danger of becoming all too serious, Ben started writing. Not in the way that Forest Gump started running, but at least he started. He wrote on steamed up mirrors in the bathroom to make his children smile. Eventually he graduated to making up stories to entertain his kids at bed-time.
For some reason, his boys didn't seem interested in his tales of every-day life, relationships, family, trauma, farce and the occasional bit of debauchery. They preferred JK someone or other.
Following his short-lived career as a children's author, Ben now concentrates on writing stories for grown-ups. He writes for people who have lived, loved, worked, strived and suffered - people like him. People like you.
