      Michael Dearborn isn't a real likable person. As the book suggests "he's a hot mess". This book is a well written story of him navigating through a break up, a new interest, work and his relationship with his long time best friend. While he's pathetic at times, I couldn't help but be on his side wishing him the best. Knowing that in my life, I've been a hot mess too, and that sometimes we have to hit rock bottom in order to experience all life has to offer. This is a well written story with a ve [...]

      Man*hattan: a fairy tale by Philip Higgins is not your typical m/m romance. Though the story abounds with the Manhattanite stock bitchy gay characters, they are not there just to fill out the life of Michael, the nervous, emotionally uncertain narrator. They are at once surface-familiar and yet at odds with expectations. It is the narrator's sense of awareness and detail, and gutsy sense of humor that brings this story to life. His emotional vicissitudes steer the story away from the normal roma [...]

      3.5 stars I'm not sure how to rate this one. As a whole I enjoyed the book. It's quirky, fun and I just wanted to give Micheal hugs repeatedly.

      4.5 Entertaining, twisty fun. Would love to read more by this author.Left off some of my shelves to avoid "spoilers".

      This story made me want to do an impression of Cher in Moonstruck and just slap Michael Dearborn and say "snap out of it"!I spent most of the tale in that state, but I did enjoy Michaels dry humor, moments of insight (quickly overtaken by recklessness), and cadre of friends.It's not a typical story, it's disjointed in parts, but it still kept me entertained. The story needs some polishing, but I'm definately curious to read this new authors upcoming works.

      As I read this I couldn't help but think if Sex and the the City had a gay spin off it would be this book. It has the smart clever banter of friends over brunch, the sexy but quirky bar scenes, and the tad over self articulating character that wants to find real love.

      Reading this fall--maybe. Sounds New Yorky.

      If you want your time to be waisted, and if you want to read a story plot without a meaning then you are on the right path.
