Yay! Finally got round to reading this book, glad it took me less than 2 years LOL!!

This was an 'ok' read, it struggled in places to keep my attention, but I got there in the end!

I found Harry to be a bit of an odd ball, and his relationship with his best friend is a bit questionable - would hate to see how he treated his enemys!

I thought the twist at the very, very end was great and I didn't see it coming!

Amazon.co.uk Review
Girlfriend 44 supplies a sharp, sardonic study of one man's slant on relations between the sexes. Laddish, thirtysomething Harry is still looking for the woman of his dreams, after 43 failed attempts. When his mate Farley apparently commits suicide over a girl called Alice, Harry sets his sights on the bereaved, convinced that she's the woman of his dreams. There's just one small catch--his best mate Gerrard is equally convinced that she's the only one for him and so the contest commences. A battle not so much of wits as of puerile one-upmanship ensues as the pair project their own needs and desires onto the object of their fantasies. Sporting metaphors are served up fast and furious in this rogues' rally:
"So by cutting the levity ... he brought the fight onto his own territory. Even if he failed ... he would still be there, like a tennis player hanging on in a demanding rally, biding his time to regain the cent re of the court."

Sort of bloke chit-lit. Quite funny to read something like this with the other perspective and stark and funny in places. Some of the diversions from the plot I found a little long, not always relevant and broke the flow a little.
