Book review: Three Way by Daniel Grant

When I got this book for review I was so trilled. After ‘Sex Lessons’ (author’s debut novel), I couldn’t wait for the second book to be out.

So, here is the plot: Ollie Hayward shares apartment with his best friend from childhood, Parker. Also just broke up with the love of his life-Svetla.  After couple of months suffering for his lost love he meets Lauren. At the same time, an old friend of his, Ashley, moves into the apartment.  So, there are three women in his life and he feels torn between them.

I liked Ollie a lot. He is so clumsy and has such a good soul.  There are always some silly situations that can happen only to him. I don’t want to reveal the interesting stuff, but, who falls asleep on the nearest hobo? Don’t answer that.  Also, he works as a news producer and makes interviews with important people. But only Ollie can make that mistake to spread in the air the moment when the Prime Minister says “shit”.

I also liked his flatmate Parker. He is a writer-to-be with very unique ideas in his mind. I was thrilled that his bestselling book is going to be translated in Macedonian. His character reminded me of Spike from Notting Hill movie. Do you remember Spike, William’s flatmate?

The women in the book weren’t that interesting. Svetla was cheating Ollie, left him, then wanted to come back to him. The relationship with Lauren was always on-off, and Ashley was his BFF since childhood. But there was nothing interesting about any of them.

I liked the book, it had some really great moments, but unfortunately it didn’t make me laugh so hard as ‘Sex Lessons’ did. I mean, the book is funny and entertaining, but less funny than the previous one.  Overall, I did enjoy reading it.  Will Ollie choose the right path in his love life? Well, you’ll have to read the book.

My rating: 3.5/5
