Loved every word of it - I myself opted for a simpler engagement ring, I never understood the Tiffany craze or why a man should ruin himself on a ring... I prefer putting down money on a house. But that's just me. Or it's me and Mara Altman.
I had read "Thanks for Coming", her novel, before reading this and she never disappoints. Always funny, always witty, always uncomfortably honest.
Great read! I highly recommend it, whether you care about engagement rings or not.
This is a Non-fiction read where Mara tells us about her Boyfriend and now fiance and how it all came about. It started with a simple basic boring ring, a ring most women would look at and say "are you serious?!". However, Mara was always confidant that she did not want to get married so now that the non issue has suddenly become an issue because of this simple basic ring. Mara Dives into exploring learning and researching why women want/need/get diamond engagements rings and what it means to the men that give them and the women that receive them
Naturally I found this "Kindle Single" to be quite interesting because I also just got engaged. I thought Mara's thoughts and opinions through out the book were quite hilarious and a few times I had to shush myself from laughing to hard and waking up my fiance next to me.
"Sparkle" is a fun, quick, light hearted read. Altman tells her story as if you were friends sharing updates over a coffee. It's not particularly well written, and the prose won't win any awards, but if you're looking for a personal account of the engagement ring process (and it is a process), "Sparkle" is worth both your time and money.

Lots of icing, very little cake. Altman often appears to be writing strictly for effect. Not thought provoking - frankly, I was bored.Published 20 months ago by AreEssJay
