An interesting little book. Ian moves to Manchester, to be with his long term girlfriend Ashley. He leaves all of his friends behind. Now however, hes finding it very difficult to make friends as he works from home. He meets Jo, a woman at a party and subsequently 2 weeks later and they hit it off - as friends. But he doesn't tell his girlfriend that Jo is a woman and she thinks his new frend is Joe.
The book is about a friendship thats lovely but becomes slightly complicated. I enjoyed the aspects of Jo and Ian's friendship and how it develops. You get a feel for all of the characters and can imagine why there is some doubt about the friendship being just that. The ending was well wriiten too. 4 stars for me.

Popping in the Already Crossed BookBox.

Journal Entry 16 by wingFlutterbies9wing at Meare, Somerset United Kingdom on Thursday, January 13, 2022
Arrived on the return of the Already Crossed bookbox.

This is an author I have read and I may well read this before sending it on its way again.

Journal Entry 17 by wingFlutterbies9wing at Meare, Somerset United Kingdom on Sunday, January 16, 2022
Well, this just sort of fell into my hands as I tried to get into bed and the tbr pile toppled over, so I started reading it!!

Not my first Mike Gayle novel but just as easy to read as the previous two I have read (The Man I Think I Know, and All the Lonely People). I did like the concept of the storyline and was fascinated by the contrasting points of view which I thought Mike Gayle captured so well. I have been on a few sides of this equation (ie. the very platonic best friend of a man whilst going out with someone else and the girlfriend of a man who had a best friend who was feminine) and found a lot of familiarity with the scenes. Frankly, I liked the ending and found it more true to life than I was beginning to expect.

I suspect that this will be continuing its journey in the not too distant future.
