5/5 Stars
The Drought, as far as I’m aware is my first introduction to lad lit.

Just because it’s lad lit far from means that it is just for lads. If you love programmes like The Inbetweeners, you are going to love this novel.

The Drought for me is a great way to see the male side of love, life and relationships.

Dan who recently finds himself single, starts to miss the sex aspect of his life. As the book description says, it certainly isn’t from the lack of trying. Everything that could go wrong does go wrong when any chance of sex comes along.

Dan tries so hard to get laid. He just seems to be a walking disaster though and he doesn’t half get himself into some complicated situations. These situations are proper laugh out loud moments that, even though they made me cringe as he really can be a proper idiot at times, were just to funny not to get enjoyment from them.

After struggling for so long on his own he enlists the help of his friends. The weekend away that they arrange is just hilarious. The list of rules that they have to stand by is just something so typical of what you would expect from your stereo typical single male. There idea of chat up lines and how to treat women is just so cringeworthy yet it is so accurate to what mainly goes on in the clubs and pubs.

His work life can be just as bad as his personal life but again makes for a fun read. I love the relationship between Dan and work colleague, Kelly. The pair of them get on really well and have a good laugh and right from meeting Kelly I really wanted the pair of them to get together.

The Drought is a hilarious novel that I think would definitely make a belter of a movie or television show. Would certainly highly recommend this to both sexes who have a good sense of humour and are in need of something more light hearted.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
