Zen and Sex by Dermot Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of those books that you'll love with every funny bone in your body or you will hate. Comedy is the hardest to pull off in a movie, let alone in a book. What one person sees as comedy, another views as an insult. South Park is a perfect example.
In Zen and Sex (I think the title of the book was changed after it was given to us to review), Martin is captivating and funny. The cover gives a whole new meaning to lust vs. love and it is truly the beginning of how good this book is.
I found myself smiling over and over at Martin's thought process and actions because it made me think of myself, people I knew. The sex angle of the story comes from Martin while the zen angle comes from Frances who after several failed relationships who is willing to overlook Martin's age.
She is older than him but young at heart and she accepts him for who he is with a lot of twists and turns that will make you draw comparisons to at least one relationship you have been in or know of. Highly recommended if you are looking a few laugh out loud moments.
