    1. Although this is his debut novel, this is my second David Baddiel book (also read Whatever Love Means), and I enjoyed both immensely. This is a very funny book (Brit humor) about relationships between two brothers and two sisters. One of the couples is married, and the other brother (an insomniac) is secretly in love with his brothers wife and then starts dating her sister. Baddiel has a great way of portraying the emotion of the moments he depicts within the scenes of the story, and with poetic [...]

    2. Dopo aver letto di scoregge devastanti, mosche mutanti e problemi vari d’insonnia, il tutto farcito con ironia maschile piuttosto a buon mercato, decido che fra David e me è tempo di divorzio.

    3. The thing I liked about this book is the degree of honesty in it. It was very refreshing to me. I enjoyed that "Time for Bed" was dark and full of black humor and real life.I enjoyed that it was in no way a love story, not a typical relationship between the main heroes. I enjoyed the easy narration of the main hero, his dark thoughts and jokes and I think that this book is definitely a fine debut!It leaves off with an uncertain ending and I liked the simplicity of it, it's just like getting a gl [...]

    4. Very amusing indeed - enough of the lightness of a chick-lit equivalent, but with wit and humour on top (and plenty that most men will see themselves in!). I was a little worried that I wouldn't 'get' some of the London-centric or Jewish-related stuff, but it's so well-written that any bloke would find enough in this to like.

    5. London Jewish insomniac is in love with his brother's beautiful wife and starts going out with her sister. I found it rather predictable, slow to get through and not that funny. There were some amusing observations, but even these felt rather exaggerated.

    6. Loved this book! This is the second book of his that I've read and I really enjoy his writing style. Funny, honest and very real.

    7. Funny at times, but a bit obvious too. I think I prefer his other book. An OK read though, kept me amused for a while.

    8. Mja. Kan erger. Kan ook veel beter. Chick lit vanuit een gast beschreven die maar nergens echt sympathiek wil worden

    9. A story about a coffee loving jewish isomniac in love with his brother's wife. Comic and full of great descriptions
