London, 1969. The hottest, hippest, wildest domain of hedonists and pleasure-seekers, where swingers swarm the clubs and discos in a high-stakes quest to live for the moment. At the centre of this decadent scene, one man plays all the angles, never missing a chance to score with the beautiful women who desire him - and walks the line between ecstasy and overload.

Raw, racy and rambunctious, this novel is funny, fast-paced and incisive. I would never have read Collins if a friend wasn't a fan. I was expecting saccharine melodrama, not satire. The characters float through the unexpected, trying to remain cynical throughout but Collins does a great job of showing the chink in the armour, making the protagonist a likeable one, naive and soft in his own way, despite his bravado and conceit.
Full of pizzazz and 70s glamour, this book was a crisp and quick read which I definitely enjoyed! ( )

A uni forced read, this book was categorised as a "sex-and-shopping" novel. Now, that's also the term used for chick lit, so I was intrigued. Did I have here the grandmother of all chick lit? Uhm, no. It's a fast romp and reads like the gossip column of Hello! magazine. Which isn't a bad thing in and of itself. What I didn't like about it was the fact that in the end, nothing changed. If you shuffled the names around a bit, and replaced the names of places, you could just slpa the last chapter in front of the first chapter, and off you go again. no one's learned a leson, changed or grown as a result of the story's little twists and jabs. I also don't like glamour novels in general, so this book was off on a bad start. Still, it's not nearly as horrible as our lecturer makes it out to be. ( )
