    1. I read this because I heard a very lively interview with the author on CBC Radio, and because the premise of the book sounded interesting and entertaining. It's true, there were parts that were amusing, but overall I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. The author tackles a topic that is potentially interesting--an emotionally stunted late 30s man who is jolted out of his comfortable, self-centred, kind of unpleasant existence when he is suddenly saddled with an unavoidable responsibilit [...]


    2. Toby grew up in Montreal and now works for a TV station there doing a show on etiquette for the modern man. The night before the election, Toby finds his father sitting in his parents' driveway in their car, which is on fire. Trying to cope with this incident, his father's increasingly strange behaviour, and his own lack of courage in dealing with it, Toby struggles through the night. Faced with the added distress of the betrayal of his girlfriend, he undergoes a minor meltdown on live televisio [...]


    3. Todd Babiak is one of my favorite contemporary novelists. In one sense his novels follow a similar pattern. A young man, no longer an adolescent, encounters various challenges in his life. Three of those challenges occur in all four novels: women, friends and parents. Coupled to a breezy and humorous style are geographic settings and time periods that ring absolutely true. For me this was most evident in The Garneau Block, andThe Book of Stanley which are set, respectively, in the Garneau neighb [...]


    4. First I discover a contemporary of Mordecai Richlerw I find a successor. This is a novel that combines the heartwarming familiarity of Canadiana with modern suburban fixations, tied together with lashing of black comedy that is occasionally dark enough to blind Dracula himself. As an ode to life's complexities and what it means to be "mature", this is a wonderful, amusing, heart-breaking piece of work.


    5. A clean piece of Canadiana, refreshing. No real "uniqueness" except for it's locale. It's a very common middle-age crunch style of story. There is some real life experience that permeates the pages on the part of the author. You will empathize with Toby. You will feel his ambition and conflict. It is if anything an effective novel, but hardly original.


    6. A funny book about a thirthy seven year old self-made "society" man who finally grows up and gets what's important in life. Babiak has a nice sarcastic way of describing some very funny and sad situations


    7. I really enjoyed "The Book of Stanley" so I was looking forward to reading this one but I was disappointed. I just didn't connect with Toby and didn't feel he was genuine. I didn't even find it all that interesting until about 2/3 of the way through.



    8. Todd Babiak is very entertaining as a writer and as an interviewee!Very enjoyable bookrs all emotions.Thankx


    9. Extremely well written!Todd Babiak has a talent for making very mundane details and typical routines hilarious and a little absurd.


    10. A great read. A story of a man who falls from grace but in the process learns what is really important in life. Has excellent moments of humour, saddness, heart ache and foolishness.
