"Twenty Something recounts a year in the life of Jack Lancaster, a go-getting graduate in the City, who is mainly going and getting drunk. Inspired by the sage advice of Flatmate Fred, Jack decides to start keeping a diary in the hopes that by writing down his thoughts he'll be able to tease out the snags in his complicated life: his disastrous relationship with the luscious Lucy, his dismal job in an investment bank, and his general dissatisfaction with life as a twentysomething in the City." "Setting out to sabotage his career and save his soul, Jack embarks on a war of nerves with his sarcastic, Latin-spouting boss and dumps his girlfriend, falling head over heels in love with the office beauty. But when his ex takes up with his best friend by way of revenge, Jack's life spirals further into chaos, until a tragic twist of fate sets him on a bumbling journey towards a life less awful."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)

I loved this book. It was hilarious. The book tell us the story of Jack Lancaster, a 25 years old men with a million of problems : he is sick of his boring job at a bank in London, he dosen't get along with his girlfriend and he fights with his friends. The whole world is against him!!! This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. ( )
