Elliot Allagash. Review "The best one-night stand you'll ever have Delivers more laughs per word than anything you'll read this year. Rich's humor is well drawn, his punch lines always on time.

When he first received news that he had received the Nobel Prize in Physics he was a little confused, but he figured if Bob Dylan could get the Nobel Prize in Literature, why not? You writing so like constipation this days. Always exaggeration so big it absurdness of hilarious. Always people talk bad English like never have no ESL night class. Always same thing. So we want give you prize this giant economic bottle of laxative.
You mind need to set free and release out. If you, the reader of this review wish to find yourself doubled over with laughter equal to or better than this audience, this book is for you!
The next thing he knew, Simon was walking down Sveavagen Street in a daze and wondering when they started the Razzy versions of Nobel Prizes. As he neared Lille Vartan Strait he heard the most gorgeous singing he had ever heard, and they were singing his name!
He was thrilled. Of course he knew that they were Gowanus Sirens and that he was doomed. But it had to be better than what happened when, on exiting the awards hall, in a fit of pique, he chugged the entire bottle of laxative and tossed away the empty bottle with a flick of his wrist.
Besides, wading into the deep water was just the thing to rinse out, as best as could be expected, his now soiled pants. If you, the reader of this review, would like to be as thrilled and delighted as if etherial, topless sirens were singing seductively right to you, this is the book for you!
Highly recommended! Had no idea what I was in for, having only seen the series on TV, and never reading any of Rich's other works, but was very pleasantly surprised!
The book is a compilation of short stories ranging from a few pages to a few paragraphs, all of which dealing with some sort of quasi romantic seriously over dramatized interaction between a man and woman. As outlandish as the stories are I've found myself on more than one occasion relating to the character's thoughts and actions. If you are looking for something that you can skim through with the little downtime you have over the next few months this is the book for you. However, if you're anything like me you won't be able to put it down.
And then there's the one that looks into how the game of love would work if its players were subject to being traded, like the pros. And one about God's girlfriend and the role she played in what He did on "the seventh day. And one about what happens when The Invisible Man encounters his girlfriend's new boyfriend. And a story about the guy who started the Occupy movement, who decides to employ that strategy to get the woman he idolizes to go out with him.
And the one that delves into that scariest of all days, the day when one's girlfriend demands to know where the relationship is going. Plus 22 more weirdly wild and crazy imaginings from the mind of a twenty-something former Saturday Night Live staff writer, New Yorker contributor and son of former New York Times columnist Frank Rich. If you're looking for witty and wacky short-short stories that raise eyebrows and induce sly smiles of recognition, this collection could be just the thing.
One person found this helpful. I bought this book and read it in one sitting. My only complaint is that the book is so short, because the stories within are so wonderful, witty, and entertaining.
The collected short stories range from topics of sex aliens to a scared straight program that takes teens to the suburbs to see where their ways will lead if they stay in their relationships. All in all this book is without a doubt one of my favorite books I've read in years.
The television show is good, but this book is great. After this book, I bought several other Simon Rich books and can say that the three short story collections I've read of his are all great. Unlike the show, this book is not an ongoing narrative a single character. However, it does get in the zone of those fantasy tales, paranoia, or absurd thoughts that one goes through when in the different stages of a relationship.
A lot of it has to do with break ups. If you're feeling rejected, this might make you smile and laugh off the situation. If you're looking for an easy read that's funny, check this out. Its surprising how much a person can relate to these stories. This is an enjoyable book of brief, creative vignettes. There is no great insight, poignancy, or eloquence in these stories but this book is delightful and lighthearted. It's nice to find love stories that don't take themselves too seriously.
I was unimpressed by the former title, "Last Girlfriend on Earth. I eventually bought it, but with the new title. Still read, they are short and sweet, but entertaining. This book is perfect for someone going through heartbreak! Laughter is always the best medicine! Besides the laughter though, it really makes you re-evaluate your entire romantic history, as broken up in the 3 sections in the book - 1 guy pursues girl 2 guy gets girl 3 guy loses girl. I am now a certified Simon Rich fan!

I'm a huge fan of the high-concept short story, and am always on the lookout for alternative explorations of love in all of its pain and glory. This book promises both, and I so wanted to love it. Overall, it's a good light read, ideal for a trip.
There's a solid creative premise behind each story, explored succinctly and effectively, if not gracefully. I'd call Rich's writing style punchy rather than witty - there's no revelling in language, no brilliant sentences or startling descriptions, and it does indeed read like a TV script - not necessarily a bad thing.
But I'm unimpressed with the number of books, shows and scripts coming out with Nice-Guy-Can't-Make-Good syndrome and this is basically another offer of what's starting to feel like too-trodden territory. At the heart is a middle-class urban guy with a touch of 'loser' mindset who whines about not being able to find girlfriends and score with women, while feeling ambivalent toward, cheating on, and criticising the women who actually want to be with him.
Here there's good reason - basically every girl represented, with the exception of the one at the beginning, a first love who is never described, and the one at the end who offers better Relationship Contract Terms, is a soul-eating harpy who wants to manipulate, entrap, and otherwise ruin the life of Nice Guy Main Character. In many of the stories Rich takes this very literally, making women into man-eating sirens, sentence-wielding prison guards, alien sex gods who will only come to Earth to sleep with taken men, and actual trolls to be fought off with sticks on the worst of blind dates.
