For pete's sake, you meatbrains who rated it low, this is a work of HUMOR and if you don't like Turner's brand, STOP READING AND FIND SOMETHING ELSE ... unless you're the kind of creep who wakes up in the morning looking for something to be offended by ... probably best to limit yourselves to books containing mainly two-syllable words because the negative posters sound to me like intellectually underemployed republicans (who don't like *anything* and have *no* sense of humor). Funny, too, because Turner lives in arch-red-state Idaho yet she's funny (and I have no idea about her politics and don't care).
This book touches on the little things that happen every day when raising kids, filtered through the mind of a writer whose selector switch is on "funny". That's what its about - raising kids - and how parents react when the kids are with them and awake, and when they're not. This is droll, almost sardonic stuff, but Turner always rescues you from going too far down those kinds of roads with lines that make you do a double take and bust out with a big guffaw. You also have to appreciate potty humor now and then because when raising young kids that's about all you can expect or get sometimes. Which reminds me, the scene in the hospital was utterly hilarious. Remember it?
Or lines like these:
"Luckily, my future husband agreed to skip children. If we reproduced, our kids would inherit crooked teeth, poor vision, acne, psoriasis, and uncontrollable flatulence, all contained within a body not likely to grow much beyond five feet tall. That was just the outward, physical legacy. They’d also have to contend with obsessive compulsive tendencies, a love of vice, and rampant bitchiness. I don’t feel a need to identify which traits would come from which parent; suffice it to say that we felt it our duty not to pass these afflictions on to another human." - Turner, A.K. (2012-08-02). This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store (p. 6). Fever Streak Press. Kindle Edition.
You can find funny stuff like this on every page! Imagine it delivered in a deadpan, at the end of a full day of kids and spouse, dinner, dishes, tomorrow's lunches and wash, and maybe a little sex before the coma sets in. If it sounds familiar, it probably is, so why not laugh at Turner and at yourself, too? If you can't laugh at yourself, folks, you are in sorry shape ... and if the bottle on the cover offends you it probably means you are self-conscious about a flaw of your own. Get over yourself. AK Turner sure has.
The writing was superb. I didn't see any grammatical mistakes, and honestly, I wasn't concerned about them. AK Turner has an excellent talent at writing. She brings in clever prose, and it made for a great over all storytelling. She even made me laugh a few times.
If AK Turner wrote another book along these lines dealing with old folks, cars, whatever, I would buy it. I liked this book, and I recommend it. Read the preview, read the description, and decide for yourself if it's worth your time. I'm glad I didn't listen to the naysayers. It was worth spending a few moments with everyday.
If you take yourself too seriously you won't get it and probably should forget about reading this book. however, if you have ever sent a text to your significant other as I did the other day that simply read "mark today in the 'survived it' column" this is for you!
There were a couple of minor editing misses, guiling instead of guilting--both of which are misses on my spell check but whatever, only the second makes sense. Anyway, these few errors do not add up to enough to take away any of the stars. I finished this book quickly with a smile on my face wondering if Boise is a nice place to visit because I'd sure like to buy the author a margarita!
PS Amanda, my boy finally started sleeping through the night by the time he was 5---those were some long years of The Night Fury! And like your Ivy, anytime he was with grandma or a sitter he "slept like a little angel." Curly haired, dimple grinned little rat b******!
