Idiots in Love: Chronicles of Romantic Stupidity Paperback – April 1, 2006
Top Customer Reviews
The book is set up with one page anecdotes. I found a few of the entries funny, some left me rolling my eyes, but most did not effect me. Too many of the entries reminded me of the urban legends we have all heard so many times. Maybe this proves their truth, but it wasn't enough. A bride getting rice lodged in her ear, a groom falling off the bed (while jumping) on his honeymoon and breaking his wrist, a groom showing up at his wedding to find two brides (his fiance and his ex-girlfriend). There wasn't enough to make me care about most of the entries.
On the plus side the book is an easy read and did provide me with some smiles and a few laughs.
First, I suggest you go back to the top of this page and click on the photo of the book, where it says Search Inside. That will let you read a few of the pages and see how funny the stories are. Of course, that will also tell you whether or not it's your kind of humor.
Besides being funny, I also like the book because the shortness of each story makes for easy "start and stop" reading -- all without having to stop laughing. It was perfect for my subway rides around the city, for grabbing a few quick laughs with lunch, and now it sits in my lobby for visitors who will (hopefully) only need a few minutes' distraction.
Whether you just want some laughs in your life, desperately need to feel superior to someone, or would like customers who have to wait for you to be smiling when you finally get to them, I highly recommend this book.
Basically, a Darwin Awards-style book for romance gone horribly awry. Reads like Reuters news wire stories. Zero prose flare. Very journalistic/workmanlike in its approach.
