Not your average, honesty is the best policy, blah, blah, communication involves listening, yawn, your partner should be your best friend, excuse me while I gag, relationship guide. Pretending to Love breaks all the rules for how to create "relationship bliss". It doesn't just break it but throws it to the ground and punches it in the face until it can maneuver into a rear naked choke. (As you'll learn, Dream Girls like UFC.) :D
Undoubtedly, you will find some person or situation to identify with, even if you hate to admit it. One of my favorite lines in the book came right in the beginning in the Relationship Questions and Answers: For Men--
Q. Can women tell when I want to sleep with them?
A. Yes. All men display subtle hints when they want to sleep with a woman. Some of the more obvious ones are talking, looking in their direction, and breathing.
Why didn't I ever get that before? Genius! Anyone in need of a good laugh should buy this book.
*Warning--may contain offensive material to certain individuals--specifically to those with an unnatural affection for cats, Johnny Depp, and artistic realism.
I don't normally laugh out loud when I read, but this book made me do just that. And there were parts where I wanted to just read paragraphs out to the nearest people (unfortunately I was on a train most of the time I was reading this, and I looked around, but the surly-faced bloke sitting near me in his tweed jacket just didn't seem like he would fully appreciate me giving him the advice as per the book).
Great tongue-in-cheek look at relationship self help books. Probably sums up the authors thoughts on that genre of writing quite well. Though I did think that there were certain sections that described me to a tee... (so what if I am a WoW player, play DnD and am a Chuck Norris joke connoisseur).
While you may not get useful relationship advice, you will hopefully get a good chuckle, I know I did.

I purchased this book for my Kindle thinking it was to be a silly, feather-light humor book. After reading it, I realize it is nothing of the kind. This slim tome is filled with pithy wisdom, penetrating insights, and stunning artwork.
Pithy Wisdom: "Relationships have been the single biggest cause of stress, failure, heartache, indebtedness, and outright physical revulsion since one amoeba decided to merge cellular walls with another ..." How true, and how heart-rendingly expressed!
Penetrating Insights: Male cartoon's thoughts: "I am bald, fat, and unwashed, yet I still consider myself attractive." Female cartoon's thoughts: "I am beautiful, sophisticated, and intelligent, yet I still consider myself unattractive!" One wonders how a man so young could have such deep understanding of the inner lives of cartoons.
Stunning Artwork: The book is punctuated with droll ironic cartoon couples, expertly drawn to seem at first to be virtually identical, but upon further inspection to be exactly alike. How incisive is this commentary on our self-importance and the author's limited graphics abilities!
Ashton Cartwright has created a form of humor never seen before. A single look at his Amazon author's portrait reveals a tortured, sensitive young man obviously deeply wounded by unrequited and spurned love. But this plucky talent has given us here a written guide book to the minefields we call romance.
I really enjoyed it, and I hope the author writes more books like this!
