When it finally arrived at my door today I put down what I was currently reading and dug right in. I have to say, I'm not certain my hopes were entirely met. That isn't to say it wasn't good, or funny. It absolutely was. But I think this book was much different from his others...it was less about humor and more about thoughtful story telling. There seemed to be more nostalgia than laughs. Which, as I said, wasn't a bad thing, just not what I had come to expect from Mr. Reiser. This however, shouldn't have been a surprise. It's been a very long time since his last book came out. He's gone from a new parent to being midway into getting his youngest son out of school. I suppose it was time for the nostalgia to come in.
While I didn't find as many gut busting laugh out loud moments in this book, there were some, and what replaced those moments was something just as fine....something you can relate to no matter what stage of life you're in..the only requirement is that, at some point in your life, you've had a family.
The book illustrates the idea we've all held at some point, that familyhood, the process of being a family is a very delicate, complicated and flawed thing. That no matter how much you try to change the things you felt were wrong in your own family growing up, life will absolutely do all it can to thwart your plans and take your plans and throw them out the window, but that's okay too. It gives you the idea that familyhood isn't so much a destination as a journey, as worn as that sounds....that life is for the living, not the planning..and besides, we have no idea where we're going anyway.Read more ›
An amazing actor, he is also an amazing author. He literally gets right down to the nitty gritty of things that make you think what are YOU doing with your life? How is it? Are you making your quota? Are you helping out your family? When I was sitting there reading his book (so while reading his book, I went back and read his other books, just to be on top of things) I was actually revaluating my life! I was thinkng, where has my life gown too, what have I done personally to make my life a living example to my kids (if I ever have any)? He really makes you think about your own life and that what I love about him. His show MAD ABOUT YOU, made me think of my life as well. Good for you Paul Reiser!!

Maybe it was just the mood I was in, but the book started out a little slow for me. Perhaps I was expecting the faster pace of humor I was used to from his previous books. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Rachelle McCalla
