40 million people in the US have tried Internet dating, which means 40 million people have probably gone on some pretty crappy dates. Not a Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is about one guy who experienced more than his fair share. Brian Donovan, a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR, and Chapelle's Show, has been on over 100 Internet dates in a genuine search for love and happiness.
This was cute. Brian has a fun sense of humor and I often found myself laughing out loud as I listened to his Internet dating tales. He had some crazy things happen to him, but I think that the real appeal of this book is that most of us have been there -- amirite?! Even if their crazy dating stories haven't been from the online world, I think a lot of people will relate. The audiobook is about 2 hours, which according to Goodreads breaks down to 68 Kindle pages. That is a good length. Any longer and it might have started to get stale listening to tale after tale after tale. But I really enjoyed this audiobook: it provided a good break from listening to music on the radio every so often.
