The Importance of being a Bachelor

The Importance of 

Being a Bachelor

Author: Mike Gayle

A Book Review

Three grown men living in Manchester...



Three grown men living in Manchester; brothers  Adam, Luke and Russell Bachelor deal with the dilemma of their parents, George and Joan Bachelor, splitting up after forty years of marriage.  

Question: Why a divorce after forty years?  

Answer: It's not nice to keep secrets.

All three boys have their own problems, one goes out with the wrong type of girl but now as he is aging, wants to settle down, another has problems with an ex, who won't let him see his child, and another with a secret, but they all come together in this well written and easy to read, novel. 
I enjoyed this book, breezing through the three hundred-fifty pages with ease, and totally recommend it.  

Mike Gayle's style, "I almost felt like these three men were my brothers, like I was part of their family, not just looking in..."

I guess that same old adage applies:
Who really suffers during the break up.

The children, no matter at what age or stage in life.

It's the children that suffer.  
It may sound funny, older men as children.  
But they do have a story to tell.
And Mike tells it like it is.

Mike literally takes you into a world, a very real and familiar world, one that most of us can identify with.  

I would give this book two thumbs up.
