    1. Just lately I ve been reading a variety of deep weighty, multi layered novels that take a lot of concentration To go alongside these and take the pressure off my aching cerebellum I needed something a little lighter Dating In The Dark provided that light relief.Pete Sortwell s humour often made me laugh out loud I d perhaps qualify that by saying that humour is a deeply personal thing and the author s sense of humour won t necessarily be to everybody s taste However, the description of Jason s h [...]


    2. When I first started reading this book, I didn t much like Jason, the lead character We have all met annoying people like him However as the story progressed and snippets of his background emerged, I warmed to him This is a classic example of how people who have been hurt put up barriers to get in there first and the unpeeling of Jason s layers so to speak is handled beautifully by this author We missed out on so much by creating armour to protect us from taunts and jibes that we sometimes forge [...]


    3. Dating in the Dark Sometimes Love Just Pretends to be Blind tells the story of Jason, a very short man that has no luck with women until he pretends to be blind to meet a woman that will not be able to see him as an ugly little short guy The lengths he goes to for female attention is told full of self directed humor and at the same time you can t help but like him for trying When you add a mother with dementia, that keeps telling him that her carers are stealing and hurting her, a best friend th [...]


    4. I managed to get hold of a copy of this book via a freebie promotion on the Kindle and as soon as I read the product description, I knew I had to read it straightaway because it sounded like it would be a right good laugh and it delivered on all accounts as I really enjoyed it Not only is it funny and easy to relate to with a brilliant cast of supporting characters but it is also a great modern day love story that makes you root from the get go for Jason to find his perfect match This all seems [...]


    5. Dating in the Dark is a brilliantly quirky love story, suitable for both Chicks and Chaps Women get a somewhat interesting, if not disturbing, look into the mind of a single gent, whilst men have the opportunity to read a romance without all the gush and fluff of a normal rom com.Personally, as much as I wanted to shake some sense into him, I loved the insight into Jason s mind He pulls some of the most ridiculous moves in order to land a woman, coming off as either one of the most warped or mor [...]


    6. You ve never met a leading man quite like Jason Harding Pete Sortwell does a nice job setting up Jason s predicament and how he goes about trying to resolve it The core of the plot shares a lot with another warmhearted romantic comedy, How to Choose a Sweetheart by Nigel Bird but they are really quite different despite this Sortwell s story is like a TV sitcom he s not afraid to get silly, and for the most part it works He also works serious themes in well without upsetting the balance.The stro [...]


    7. I was given this book to read in exchange for an honest review through THE Book Club TBC This was a very amusing book which made me laugh out loud and also cringe beyond belief Having read other books by Pete Sortwell I knew this wasn t going to be a normal book It had a great storyline and you felt sorry for and wanted to slap the lead character in equal measures The ending was great and nothing or less than deserved


    8. Not really my style however I found I couldn t stop smiling throughout this book.Jason what a sorry excuse for a person I some ways very relatable he has no self confidence and seems to look for love in all the wrong ways I enjoyed this book and I did find it interesting just not sure what it really entails while I did enjoy it I found myself hating Jason I did like happily ever after


    9. Kindle Freebie, the fourth of which I ve read in a row and I don t regret spending my time with any of them This was a quick, worth the read Cute and funny not so much hilarious, but funny is funny The ending is quite poignant and very different to how the book began so if you have trouble getting into it, keep reading and made me wish it was a little longer Which, good stories always do, don t they You don t want to part ways with them.3.5 stars.


    10. Great story, really felt Jason s pain I was given a free copy by The Book Club on Facebook in exchange for an honest review I felt that the story moved along at a good pace and kept me wanting at the end I was expecting of a list of disasters but actually it s a funny love story I actually ended up really liking Jason and rooting for him Looking forward to reading the next one and seeing of Boris too


    11. I originally started reading this primarily for the comedic relief However, the first couple chapters are so chauvinistic and self serving that I almost quit reading I m really glad I kept with it though because the protagonist, Jason, goes through tremendous changes that have the reader cheering him on and crying with him when times get tough Wonderful read


    12. Brilliant book, had me crying with laughter and sadness, the characters were all quite literally characters.Some people might read what the book is about and be put off, please don t It s funny yes, but for all the right reasons and when you read it you ll know why and you ll be glad you did, please read it and tell your friends, i know i will.


    13. I found this book an easy funny pass the time story, very entertaining, I enjoy the reality of the characteristics the characters have but wrote in an funny way thay I am sure any one that has been single can relate to in some level in humorous way The story line is a bit harfetched however makes good for reading.


    14. I received this as an arc from the book club tbc in exchange for an honest review.Jason is single and has been all of his 32 years He will try anything for a single date.Wow Fantastic read I loved it.I thought jason was a great character He could be funny at times This is petes 2nd book i have read and liked Definetly a must read.


    15. The premise sounds funny.A guy wants a blind girl so he pretends to be blind.hijinks ensue I did get a few chuckles and I m sure that people younger than me would relate to the dating sceneEAT narration thanks to Chris Dabbs


    16. Desperate times call for desperate measures Just thinking about this read puts a smile on my faceThe attempts of Jason to find love and get laid already not necessarily in this order are so hilariously funny, I was laughing throughout the whole book.


    17. This book was funny, in a very pathetic kind of way The narrator was just plain boring as a person, but he said some funny crap he was also a bit too obsessed with finding a woman He needed to work on himself a bit if you ask me That ending was kinda unbelievable, too.


    18. Loved this book Had never heard of the author, but liked the title so I figured I d give it a try Couldn t wait to read each night before bed, it was an enjoying way to unwind after a long day Great writer and love the story line Officially a fan of his work


    19. Loved this book Was so funny and true to life You couldn t help but like the main character Jason Have just bought the second book in the series



    20. I downloaded this to my Kindle because it was free and looked interesting Boy, I m glad I did This was a funny book, with characters that I cared about.


    21. Funny light hearted read I found myself thinking with a Russian accent when Boris the taxi driver was introduced.



    22. Humor can be therapeutic I knew, but it could also be philosophical is something I learnt only after reading the present book.A few days back, I stumbled upon a free eBook Dating in The Dark by Pete Sortwell purely by chance As the title had an interesting tagline Sometimes Love Just Pretends To Be Blind my attention was riveted and I began reading it at once And I must say that the book remained true to its name and turned out to be a fantabulous Rom Com set in Dark blind alleys of love.Read o [...]


    23. Jason Harding was raised in a dysfunctional family and suffers from every imaginable symptom this entails He has low self esteem, a poor self image, he is a jerk, and lies way too easily I had a hard time liking his character, he was shallow, egotistical, and blamed his problems on everyone but himself He was a wanker He was leading a sad life and some of his dating experiences were so pitiful you had to laugh.Jason only wants one thing, well two things really a girlfriend and plenty of cod and [...]


    24. I received a copy of this book through a book club I belong to on fb Thank you Tracy Fenton it has been a pure delight.This is the story of Jason Harding who is out literally to get a woman to sleep with him At 32 he has seen everyone around him pair off with someone, even his long time best friend Barry has settled down Jason at only four foot ten and a half was small in statue and lacked self esteem, even his mum made him feel ugly Jason s attempt at work to be Friendly with the girls has resu [...]


    25. Dating in the Dark was incredibly entertaining and fun This was a non stop listen for me The characters are fantastic Jason, the protagonist thinks he s ugly so on his quest in finding someone to date, he goes to a dating service, speed dating, and an internet dating site before deciding his best option is to date a blind girl Not only is this audiobook laugh out loud funny, it s also really cute It s Original And it builds and grows on you rather quickly.Jason creates a whole fake persona of be [...]


    26. A Good SniggerIt s said that you shouldn t judge a book by its cover, but this one just said, read me I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed This is a thoroughly entertaining comedy With lines such as, I had some money, but not enough to buy a whole dog, I chuckled through most of the book.The antics that Jason gets up to with his lies are so natural that we can easily imagine ourselves in a similar situation Then there are the dogs One pretty much eats everything, and that alone is par [...]


    27. I read listened to this book in audio format via audible I always choose the audios first as the narrators tend to breath life into the stories Audios also allow us to do things in life as we read our books at the same time This book had me laughing my butt off A comedy that is so off the wall, it s genius and hilarious This book is about a guy who is short and ugly He has a really hard time finding a date, so he got an idea He decides to use the dating service for the disabled Maybe he can find [...]
