Witty, but not something I'll remember in 6 months
on November 24, 2013
This book is fairly witty and fun but after a while, it starts to lose its luster and I felt like chapters were added on just to make the book longer, rather than having something interesting to say. It started off pretty well, with the chapters being in more chronological order, giving you the feeling like you're reading more of a story. However, about halfway in, the chapters start to become more disjointed and just a telling of random anecdotes.
Though the humor is never really "laugh out loud" funny, Bucatinsky is a good writer and his quirky wit shines throughout. I guess that it didn't connect for me after a while because I don't have kids or a life-partner. If that's your situation, then you'll probably appreciate it more, as a way to compare experiences. But for someone just reading it casually, it left a bit more to be desired...
