A Certain Chemistry, by Mil Millington

Ok book, not nearly as well done or as funny as Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About.

In fact, this kind of had God as a narrator of bits, and that annoyed the hell out of me, and the story was kind of depressing.

Tom is a ghostwriter, happily living in Edinburgh with his girlfriend Sara, when he is given the job of ghosting an autobiography for nighttime soap star Georgina Nye.

Tom falls for Georgina, writes his best book ever, giving Georgina political and feminist arguments that she can't discuss on the book-tour talk shows, etc, and fucks up his relationship with Sara.


It really was kind of a bummer.
