“[M]akes you feel privy to a world that’s uniquely theirs, as though you’re sitting beside them at the kitchen table while they solve their beloved jigsaw puzzles.”
—The Washington Post
“Both partners come across as likable, grounded, unpretentious, and flawed enough to be believable...Those hoping that Hollywood couples are just like the rest of us, only maybe a little bit nicer and richer, should be pleased.”
"Readers are likely to enjoy the authors' company almost as much as they seem to enjoy each other's.”

This book doesn't necessarily follow a usually 'memoir' format but then it isn't really a traditional memoir so that's to be expected. Each chapter is broken down by subject rather than have the book in chronological order. There is a certain amount of 'the happened first and then that happened' but it really is just the two authors in conversation a bit like their stage show!
The topics covered are of course both entertaining and fascinating. They range from past relationships, careers, sex and religion. It was really interesting hearing the different level of detail the two authors not only recall but are willing to share.
Since I did the audio I missed out on pictures but they are described in great deal by two talented actors so that doesn't really matter (although I am probably going to get a physical copy of the book so I can see them for myself!) Where listeners miss out on pictures, you do get some songs performed for you so really you're not missing out on anything!
I finished this one and immediately wanted to listen again from the start, I think I will definitely share this one with friends, especially those who are fans of these two actors. I don't really think you have to be Uber fans of the two authors to find this either interesting or entertaining. I think you will be entertained either way. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm heading out to buy a hard copy of the book and then start reading it all over again!
I loved this book, and I love them. Pick this one up when you're in the mood for laughter. This isn't a horn tooting celebrity biography. It is a genuine "We just want to make you laugh and tell you a little bit more about us story."
The Greatest Love Story Every Told made me feel like I'd grown up with Nick and Megan. It wasn't just a story about how they met, but discussions about their childhoods and families. There were also some really random comments made throughout the book, and sometimes they weren't relevant to the topic they were discussing, but I liked how conversational everything felt.
Megan and Nick obviously have a good time with each other, and their back-and-forth banter was fun to follow. It was also interesting to listen to them describe their lives, and how simply they choose to live. I love the idea of doing puzzles with my husband while listening to an audiobook! They disregard their phones and other electronics in favor of quiet and togetherness. I think they have a really positive outlook on life, and they make sure their marriage is a priority.
Additionally, there is a lot of below the belt talk, if you know what I mean (wink wink). I thought it was crazy when the two of them mentioned having sex (or just getting frisky), in really random places like the Sistine Chapel.
I highly recommend this one if you're a fan of either person, or just want to read something that's hilarious, honest, and extremely heartfelt.
