When you’re out there “playing the field”, it’s hard to know just who you are going to be compatible with. Many women swear by the use of astrological signs to find a mate. But what can make a mate so compatible with you can also make your life a living hell. Just ask authors Adèle Lang and Susi Rajah. Their book, How To Spot A Bastard By His Star Sign, is the result of intense research done by both authors to define every man as a bastard by basis of their star sign. As the cover of their book reads: “Everything you need to know about men and their star signs…but astrologers are too polite to tell you!...Finally, the truth is out!”
How To Spot A Bastard By His Star Sign is witty and well written and bound to elicit a laugh from even the most serious reader. Any woman who has ever taken part in the dating scene will be able to recognize the traits described in each star sign bastard. In their effort to provide you with the most informative tome about men and their star signs, the authors use multiple genres in getting their point across. There’s the play written by, directed by, and produced by Leo which presents Leo in the starring role. There’s a letter written by the devoted Cancer bastard to his Mommy. There’s a checklist of telltale signs that you are dating a Virgo bastard. This is all done in an effort to provide you with the most knowledge when approaching the male specimen. There are even compatibility tests at the end of the book to assist you in your search for your perfect bastard.
Lang and Rajah have provided the reader with a very tongue-in-cheek look at the dating scene coupled with an extremely critical analysis of men of every variety. Even the male reader of this book would be hard pressed not to laugh out loud at some of the star sign descriptors. This book comes highly recommended to the divorcees, the dumpees, the dumpers…aw hell, just about anyone.
