Review: I Suck at Girls

July 1, 2012

When Justin Halpern (of Sh*t My Dad Says fame) was ready to settle down and ask his girlfriend to marry him, he turned to his dad for his advice.   His dad suggested he take a day off to think about things and decide if it was the right decision.  Justin does just that and reflects on his relationships with females through the years and the result is a humorous memoir, I Suck at Girls.

Going back to elementary school when he first discovered girls and continuing until he finds the woman he hopes to marry, Halpern reflects on his encounters with the fairer sex throughout the years.  Since he wasn’t the smoothest guy around, many of his stories are laugh out loud funny.

Halpern’s father tries to guide him throughout the years with advice.  Even though his father seems incapable of forming a sentence without an expletive in it, his advice is often spot on.

I really enjoyed I Suck at Girls and found myself laughing quite often.  I thought the first half of the book when Halpern seemed to be completely clueless was more entertaining than the second, but the book is relatively short so it never really dragged.   I think this book will strike a chord with a lot of people since just about everyone should be able to relate to at least one of Halpern’s stories.  If you’re looking for a quick, fun memoir, look no further than this one!

    So probably not a good family audiobook listen then. 😉 It sounds like it would be fun to read.
