Editorial Reviews


Great relationship book. Thought provoking and funny. First person style is great. A fun read. Different in a good way. --BNB 4 of 5 stars

Very cute! I thought it was a nice peek into a man's mind.  --BNB 4 of 5 stars

Perfectly strange. I have come to the conclusion that this is an absolutely true story. Reading it is like sitting through a lecture in the author's mind. The author is very humorous at times and I enjoyed it thoroughly. --BNB 5 of 5 stars

From the Author

This book was a catharsis. I had a lot of angst about my relationship with my wife and writing this put many things in perspective. I am wondering what would be her reaction if she ever reads this. However, that's not very likely as she pays little attention to my creative endeavors.

I thought a long while of what I wanted to say about this book and have come up with the following statement: it is not what you're used to. Not as a reader, at least. There is a vague sequence of events, but do not expect a linear storyline because you will not get it.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is a bad thing, just a different thing. The book is quite amusing, with many funny moments as well as pretty uncomfortable ones. All in all, they balance each other out. For me, it was a treat to read an honest, male view of a relationship, with all its ups and downs. It's not that common and I appreciate the honesty in the writing.
There is nothing wrong with the writing itself except that it fits nowhere in the "genre" diagram. This is memoir/comedy/tragedy/self-help and it should be viewed as a mixture of all of them. I can easily say that if you are offended easily, if you do not have an open mind, then this book is probably not for you. But, if you do have those qualities and are willing to spend some time reading something far away from the usual, then this could be a very amusing book for you. It was for me.

I don't even know where to start with this review! First off, let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style...probably because I also tend to write like I think or talk, so the stream of consciousness thing was a breeze to follow and, I think, made the story more interesting.

And while I found myself identifying with George on so many levels, I have to admit I was also disgusted with him at times. There were moments I just wanted to give up- why continue to subject myself to thoughts and rationalizations to which I was sure I was opposed...? But having read some earlier reviews, I reminded myself to keep an open mind. And after all, I did want to see how the story ended.

For me, personally, the story was poignant in some ways because I'm currently grappling with a trial separation in my own marriage- caused, in part (but in much different ways), by several events described in this memoir. And it was SO interesting to read it from the man's perspective. I find myself wishing that my own husband has been keeping a log such as this so that one day I may really know what all was going on in that head of his during this period of tumult in our relationship. But after reading this, I find a strange comfort in NOT knowing.

I think this book has taught me that while we might like to believe that we want to know what our significant other is thinking, that belief is a STUPID ONE. God(ess) knows that, after reading this, I realize I probably don't want to know at least 75% of what's going on in my husband's head...and it reminds me to be grateful that he censors himself as much as he does. I might even forgive the occasional slips into his sub/unconscious now that I know that their depths go darker and deeper than I could've ever imagined.

What can I say that my title hasn't already said?
This book is a long, rambling diatribe concerning marriage, fidelity (or the lack thereof) and open marriage. It is written in a stream of consciousness style, so it jumps around from thought to thought, sometimes maddeningly so. The premise: man married 24 years, doesn't get enough so he is trying to get his wife to open up (so to speak) to the idea of an open marriage. Throughout the book he claims to love her yet he complains endlessly about her. When his newlywed neighbor's wife comes over and drops the bomb that her husband and his wife are having an affair, his mind goes into action trying to work the situation to his advantage. He has, by his own admission, had an online affair which started with a misleading ad he placed on Craig's List. He is overjoyed by the thought of his wife with another man, or men, as he feels this gives him the right to step out on her. I guess the only saving grace in his deluded thinking is that if both partners are willing to participate in sex beyond the confines of marriage, then nobody is being unfaithful because it's all out in the open. He seems to think he has tapped into what he explains as "the other side of jealousy", where you move beyond the rage and find titilation in your partner's infidelity. I know there are others who think along these lines and practice this lifestyle, but for me this book felt like a giant sales pitch for open marriage. Perhaps that's your cup of tea, but it's not mine.

The book had enough errors and omissions to be distracting and rambled on and on as the author presented his sales pitch...Sorry, I ain't buyin' it.

The inside of George's head is a non-linear thought process that ambles its way around many issues and ultimately comes around to a startling revelation.

In the beginning, George discovers that his wife of 24 years has had an affair. But George's internal reaction is not what you'd expect, it's better.

The way the narrator examines the "what ifs" and "maybe this or maybe that" is exactly the way my brain works - creating detailed explanations that change continually, based on what new information is discovered.

The author completely nails many aspects of what it's like to be married for 24 years to the same person. I found myself laughing out loud and reading passages to my husband. We totally get it.

I hope to see more from this writer. He has a wonderful talent of making an enjoyable read feel like a long conversation with a new friend.
