Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For the diehard romantic, there may be nothing so thrilling as chronicling that one true love. The Book of Us presents 150 topics on the subject--ranging from "Before I met you, my love life was..." to "One of the reasons I think we lasted so long as a couple is that..." Like David Marshall's earlier book, The Book of Myself, which is also a keepsake, this book makes us wish it were prettier. But it is the thought that counts, and a lot of thought will go into turning these empty pages into something a spouse, one's children, and then their children will cherish. And not to fear: While this is a very sweet book, there is also plenty of room here to ruminate on the less saccharine aspects of life partnership: financial crises, humorous escapades, parenting woes, and home-improvement projects. A word to gay readers: One of the book's five sections focuses on "Tying the Knot"; some of the questions specifically address elements such as the bachelor party and the wedding dress, but most of the questions are generic enough to apply to any type of commitment ceremony. --Jane Steinberg

My friend's husband died 6 months ago. This book has been her grief companion, as she puts on paper the many memories they had created together. It means a lot to her to have this record of their love. In moments when she misses him, she reads some of the stories she's recorded and feels him close again.

I bought this book as a birthday gift for my fiance. We have been together over 2 years and are getting married in about 100 days.
I thought that this book would be very sweet if I filled out everything up to the wedding/marriage part. However, I think that this book might be a bit hokey if just bought and given to someone blank. However, if you're willing to start filling it out, it gives your companion an interesting way to look at memories and will encourage him/her to fill it out further.
I would not suggest getting this book if you are only dating or if you are newly dating: it defines and confines your relationship too much. But this is a great book if you are a couple who are not always together. My fiance lives in England, and we often enjoy sharing memories of our courtship, our vacations, etc. This is a perfect way for your partner to hear your voice and cherish memories when he/she is alone, or when you are unavailable.
A good gift for someone/a couple who is romantic, nostalgic, and interested in a little project or creativity.

I have several friends getting married this Spring so I've been looking for inexpensive yet nice, thoughtful gifts. This book really fits the bill. I'm buying one for all the showers I'm going to. It's a wonderful way to show your support for the couple's future together. It's a lovely, touching book that shows you care.

I bought this for my husband for our 10th anniversary and he loved it! I had completed the entire book before I gave it to him and it is a great thing to pass on to your kids.

I also bought one for my parents to fill out. They have been married for 42 years and are having a BLAST filling it out together!

We are each filling in the book as a gift for each other for next Christmas. We thought it would be fun to get each others own personal take on our story than to fill out one book together. We have been married 40 years and so are very thankful for the prompts, or suggestions to help us scratch up the memories that have been somewhat fogged over with 40 years of all the other stuff that happens in life. But this would make a great wedding gift to because the couple (or get one for each spouse) can fill it in as they go along, then they would not have to recall, each emotion would be right there as they added to their story.
Here are some of the prompts from the book, there are over 150 questions that are well thought out and help record your romance.
Section One: Getting to know You, Tying the knot, Starting out together.
"Before I met you my love life was...."
"On our first date we...."
"These things symbolized our growing love (special song, place, poem, etc..."
"These are some of the reactions we got when announcing our engagement (and wedding date...)
" Our ________ anniversary was particularly memorable because...."
The first section continues on with questions to answer about settling into your marriage, dealing with differences in personalities and ideals, learning to support each other, special traditions you established for holidays. The real getting comfy with each other stuff that all marriages grow through.

This book is great for chronicling events and memories of the couple. The format of the book is that there's a question prompt at the top of the page and 1-2 blank pages following for you to answer. I would say it acts like a great journal, but really one person only need to fill it up (most likely we can guess which of the couple will take time to write in it).

If you want a book where the couple can really interact and learn about each other, I'd recommend: All About Us. It has some of the question & long answer-type format, but it also has series of multiple choice questions and short answer sections. It's a lot of fun, too!

I really do love this book, but there is honestly not enough room for two people to have space to write. I bought the book thinking that there would be a space for me to write and a space for my fiance to write. I wanted us to take turns, knowing that we'd each remember different details and express things differently, but there is only one small page for each question and the lines are spaced widely so you don't really get much room. I love to write, especially when the purpose is to remember things and descibe them in enough detail that your words will make the events come back years later. I am having trouble fitting everything I want into this book (and the paper is a bit thin--you can see the ink through it sometimes). But I have liked the questions and organization of the book so much that I am buying another for my fiance to fill in before our wedding. We will fill them out separately and then give them to one another as wedding presents.
