A television producer who has worked on some of the UK's biggest shows has compared the comedy in The Drought similar to that on hit E4 show The Inbetweeners.
Luke Dolan, who has worked on shows such as the X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, read The Drought and sung its praises calling it a "very funny book for men".
"The Drought is a great insight into man!" Luke said. "It opens up the mind of the London twenty-something bloke, and lets you know exactly what they are really thinking."
Luke saw similarities in the situations the four main characters in stand-up comedian Steven Scaffardi's debut lad-lit novel get into, and likened them to a grown-up versions of The Inbetweeners Jay, Will, Simon, and Neil characters.
"The Drought is like an adult Inbetweeners that will have you laughing all the way through," Luke said. "Jack in The Drought is very similar to Jay, with a bit more confidence if that is possible!
"And Neil could find a kindred spirit in Ollie from The Drought. I'm not too sure which one has the least amount of common sense!"
The Drought is the laugh-out-loud tale of one man's quest to overcome the throes of a sexual drought. After the stormy break-up with his girlfriend of three years, Dan Hilles is faced with the daunting task of throwing himself back into the life of a single man. With the help of his three best pals, Dan is desperate and determined to get his leg-over with hilarious consequences.
But Luke believes there is more to the story than just stereotypical lad banter. He said: "Amongst the sexual humour and outright lad culture there is also the story of a nice guy on a journey of self-exploration. The Drought takes you on a journey of embarrassing moments that make you cringe and laugh your head off, yet still manages to give you a solid tale that gives you a warm feeling inside."
And Luke thinks Scaffardi may have hit the nail on the head for anyone who wants to get the inside track on what goes on in the male mind.
"If you have ever wondered what men really think then this is the book for you. Steven has opened up the brain of lad and laid it out in a book for you."
