The Best A Man Can Get

Are the wife and kids getting you down, taking up too much of your leisure time, disturbing your beauty rest? Pretend you're single, rent an apartment and sleep there instead. Jingle writer Mike Adams, 32, is a perplexed father of two, shocked to learn that his wife, Catherine, is pregnant again. Knowing he may never realize his dream of being a rock musician, Mike justifies his double life—renting an apartment in Balham with college student Jim, porn addict Simon and shy Paul—by stressing that his long separations from Catherine solidify their marriage by keeping Mike sane.

Catherine believes Mike is really renting a music studio and pulling all-nighters to compose his commercial jingles. Holes develop in Mike's story as he retreats further into his beer-soaked pseudo-bachelorhood, stops payments on the family home in Kentish Town and is tempted by nymphet Kate. Clever psychological riffs—Mike feels he is becoming a father figure to Jim, Simon and Paul—abound between chaotic parenting and apartment scenes as Mike fears he is emulating his own father, who walked out when Mike was just five.

Denial turns to despair when Catherine bursts Mike's bubble, saying she is unhappy that he works so much, leaving her alone to raise the children. As the dark shadows of divorce, financial ruin and creative failure stalk Mike, O'Farrell succeeds in creating a hit single for the Nick Hornby crowd.

She can care for the new loves of her life as it seems only she knows how, and he can sleep until the afternoon. Can this double life continue indefinitely?

Michael Adams shares a flat with three other men in their late twenties. Days are spent lying in bed, playing computer games and occasionally doing a bit of work.

Since his first novel, he has become a father of two and cometh the hour, cometh the second novel about being a dad. Michael shares a student-like flat in south London with Paul, Simon and Jim. His bedroom has been arranged so that he never has to get up other than to shuffle the few feet to his computer where he composes jingles for the 'Mr Gearbox' ad on Capital Radio.

THE BEST A MAN CAN GET

- Его голос доносился как будто из его чрева. Он протянул руку.  - El anillo.

ГЛАВА 119 - Червь набирает скорость! - крикнула Соши, склонившаяся у монитора в задней части комнаты.  - Неверный ключ. Все застыли в ужасе. На экране перед ними высветилось сообщение об ошибке: НЕДОПУСТИМЫЙ ВВОД. ТОЛЬКО В ЦИФРОВОЙ ФОРМЕ - Черт его дери! - взорвался Джабба.

Сердце у Сьюзан бешено забилось. Правильно ли она поняла. Все сказанное было вполне в духе Грега Хейла. Но это невозможно. Если бы Хейлу был известен план Стратмора выпустить модифицированную версию Цифровой крепости, он дождался бы, когда ею начнет пользоваться весь мир, и только тогда взорвал бы свою бомбу, пока все доказательства были бы в его руках.

Jun 4, - The Best a Man Can Get is written with the hilarious eye for detail that sent John O'Farrell's first book, Things Can Only Get Better, to the top of.

Странное? - Он начал беспокоиться.  - Можешь выражаться яснее. Две минуты спустя Джабба мчался вниз к главному банку данных. ГЛАВА 85 Грег Хейл, распластавшись, лежал на полу помещения Третьего узла.

ГЛАВА 31 Сьюзан вернулась в Третий узел. После разговора со Стратмором она начала беспокоиться о безопасности Дэвида, а ее воображение рисовало страшные картины. - Ну, - послышался голос Хейла, склонившегося над своим компьютером, - и чего же хотел Стратмор. Провести романтический вечер в обществе своего главного криптографа.

Чатрукьян растерялся. - Так вы обратили внимание. - Конечно.

Прихожане могли понять нетерпение этого человека, стремившегося получить благословение, но ведь существуют строгие правила протокола: подходить к причастию нужно, выстроившись в две линии. Халохот продолжал двигаться .

Старик посмотрел на него с явным недоумением. - У вас какие-то проблемы. Беккер чуть нахмурился: старик говорил по-английски безукоризненно. Он поспешил избавиться от покровительственного тона. - Извините, что я вас побеспокоил, но скажите: вы, случайно, не были сегодня на площади Испании.

Теперь, считали они, им уже нечего было опасаться, представ перед Большим жюри, услышать собственный записанный на пленку голос как доказательство давно забытого телефонного разговора, перехваченного спутником АНБ. Никогда еще получение разведывательной информации не было столь легким делом. Шифры, перехваченные АНБ, вводились в ТРАНСТЕКСТ и через несколько минуты выплевывались из машины в виде открытого текста. Секретов отныне больше не существовало. Чтобы еще больше усилить впечатление о своей некомпетентности, АНБ подвергло яростным нападкам программы компьютерного кодирования, утверждая, что они мешают правоохранительным службам ловить и предавать суду преступников.

Парень был уже мертв, когда прибыла скорая. Они пощупали пульс и увезли его, оставив меня один на один с этим идиотом-полицейским. Странно, - подумал Беккер, - интересно, откуда же взялся шрам. Но он тут же выбросил эту мысль из головы и перешел к главному.
