Rated 5 out of 5 by from The main character is hilarious and easy to relate to! I loved this book! It's about a late-20s newly single girl in London who learns to "date like a man" from her sexy roommate. Abigail, the protagonist, is funny, easy to relate to, sassy, silly, and has an interesting life. Her dating encounters are quite amusing! Strongly recommend this book!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring I loved Dating Sabbatical, but this one is just boring. Main character seems retarded emotionally and mentally. Things are way too obvious from the very beginning and repeated thoughts and behaviours made it almost unbearable to finish the book. Often, or too often, I was under the impression I've already read that page. Wouldn't recommend unless you're a very slow reader and easily forget what you've just read.
