    One thought on “Dale Dent's Diary”

    1. This story was great, light amusement with enough irony to give it substance While shallow on the surface, this fictional diary had enough internal depth to anchor it This mix not only made it a fast fun read, but left behind some common truths to ponder long after the book has been read.

    2. Summary Dale Dent s Diary by Woody Miller is described as a gay Bridget Jones Diary and that s a fair description It s also a sibling of Sex in the City Dale Dent s Diary is a quick, fun read which follows the dating adventures of Dale He s shallow about physical beauty, and has a problem liking anyone who finds him attractive Dale s best friend, Richard, is the voice of reason and a repository of hilarious advice Dale Dent s Diary is great for fans of chick lit or, in this case, dick lit Prime [...]

    3. Happy to be WrongI don t like romances written as diary entries I see a date heading a chapter and I m done, over, scrolling on by So why did my hand hesitate over the mouse, hover and then hit send sample of Dale Dent s Diary Was it the cute cartoon cover or the clever alliteration of the title Who knows I can tell you why this book went from sample to sale made me laugh From Dale s friend coming at him with tweezers to the weather forecast style predictions of his sex life, this book is pure p [...]

    4. Such a hard book to review It starts out like a true diary, but over time Dale becomes analytical about his relationship wants and needs, and why he has consistently sabotaged them over the years, and then I lost the feeling of diary Past the first few months, the dates became irrelevant, other than I noticed that the book chronicled about 2 years why this time frame The writing is witty, entertaining, and at times laugh out loud funny, alternating with scenes where you just nod you head and th [...]

    5. Hilarious, but also heartwarming in places, this book isn t a typical meet some one and fall in love romance The book is about one man s journey through a plethora of relationships, laughs, love, heartache and mistakes as he tries to figure out why he can t seem to find the right guy Dale s character does start off as a bit whiny and superficial, but these are his diary entries If you stick with it, you begin to glean little hidden bits about who Dale really is.The sucker punch comes at about 50 [...]

    6. Dale Dents Diary is a book about just that It is written in a diary format and it s all about Dale And surprisingly it works The story was so funny that I laughed out loud on almost every page And I loved the character growth in Dale Now I m looking into the future and I see a Sequel about Richard his best friend and need to see how Dale is doing It ended rather eruptly if I say so myself The only thing that slightly irritated me was that there were so many names mentioned, And that one entry Da [...]

    7. My rating has to do with my personal taste, not the quality of the book It s well written and funny It s also kind of humor I find painful, and maybe a little too close to home A lot of us have lived through this sort of shooting ourselves in the foot, being well aware of our modus operandi, but repeating ourselves regardless A dear friend in my long ago past pretty much lived this I smile, grimace, and sigh It s also a record of self examination, but one that s difficult to listen to after awhi [...]

    8. 4 4.5 starsI think what I most enjoyed about this is that I got to see a different side of Dale Dent in the last half All that self depracation used for humour sort of ended up being a cover he uses to hide his vulnerability and pain from past experiences I find myself highlighting quite a lot because the emotions and fears conveyed were genuine and perhaps a little heartbreaking.There s a lot of laughs in this too so don t be misled or put off by what I ve mentioned so far.All in all a very nic [...]

    9. FUN AND SWEETDale Dent is a bit of a basket case Doesn t have a steady boyfriend He clearly has commitment issues But, the fun of it is how cool, confused and funny he is Really like the humor and the gay lifestyle that the author describes And this author is a keeper Smart AND witty Two fiction writer qualifications I admire and enjoy And this book was a bit different from the norm That s always a plusaders like me

    10. This very short gay version of Bridget Jones Diary is peculiar indeed.Writing is essentially flawless but the story has no real bite to it Dale remains a foreign, rather unlikeable character and the situations depicted, familiar though they are to me and I think to many other gay men who have been on the dating ground , fail to arouse any sympathy.I am sorry to say that, after a couple of pages, I got terminally bored.

    11. Dale does not come across as a terribly likable guy for most of this book Funny, but not likeable He ruins every relationship he is in and then complains that he wants a relationship I have to say that he redeems himself in those last few chapters when he finally takes the time to look at what he is doing and the reasoning behind it.

    12. Witty with a lesson, but scattered and drops stories with resolution Almost a series of vignettes, but also a stream of poorly related experiences Some errors with the interrelated dates as well Overall a very light beach read about a gay man finding his romantic place in the world However it needed stronger writing to pull it off.

    13. Vacation reading Not thrilled There are some funny moments but there really is no character development Little conflict and almost no climax It just sort of ends at the first sign of trouble One would think that the book would not just start going and then end in the last 10 pages.

    14. Amusing and slightly funny gay man s diary Made me laugh at times, so definately upping the stars Thanks for this one, I really enjoyed it.

    15. Good bookI thought Dale was a very likable character The story was realistic and I read it in a few hours.
