Top Customer Reviews
First off, I have to say that I like the title of this book and one of the reasons I did, indeed, read it was because I thought that this book would be a funny and silly look at a man's point of view of singlehood and marriage.
IF this is the angle the author was going for, then I would have to say that this book is a success. It was silly, silly in some parts - I especially like the comparisons the author keeps making between the importance of the woman they select as their wife should able to do the same things as the mothers.
On the other hand, if this book is actually a serious look at singlehood and marriage then I have to say that this book seriously misses the mark. For one thing, it is highly sexist and extremely stereotypical. Men are cast the "the guys" and the woman are cast "as the little women". Basically, neither sexes fares well in this book and the author manages to make everyone somehow miss the point of marriage.
Which is why I believe that the author was taking a ironic look at the state of marriage. That's my story and I am sticking with it.
Let me back up here and say I am a single girl. Can you hear me whispering? I should wear it proudly, but I'd be lying if I said I liked dating and I wouldn't consider standing in line for the secret that would have Prince Charming on my door step in two seconds flat if I could avoid any more bad first dates. So this book is perfect for someone like me, right?
