The level of vocabulary that Shapiro chose to use in this book makes her come across as pompous and arrogant. She reminds me of Carolyn Gebhart in high school who was always trying to impress everyone with her extensive vocabulary in an effort to raise awareness that she was better than everyone else. In addition, I did not find any part of the book humorous. Shapiro attempted witty conversation, yet the dialogue of the book bored me almost to tears.
I found this novel enjoyable and even delightful...read it in just two sittings. What an unusual read, the take on the 'dangerous husband.'
This book will keep you laughing and guessing. A woman marrys a man, only to see all of his flaws later. She quickly decides that it's time for him to die!
Funny book. Kinda weird, but I enjoyed reading it.
Remarkably funny, I basically read this book straight through. Completely taken with the whole experience, staying up far too late just like high school days, I was lost in a new world of cleverness, insight and unique perspective.
But this is a book for adults, for anyone who has been in a grown-up's version of adolescent love, swept off his/her feet, enchanted, lost in a magic world that turns out to be more a great big mess than honeymoon heaven. It's all deliciously funny happening to someone else.
Enjoy every laugh and chuckle.
I had to fight to finish this book. I was so curious to where the author was going that I had to read it to the end, but I wasn't that into it.
A humorous take on how an accident prone man becomes an abuser. Abuse is never funny, but the wife in the story does not truly believe she is a victim. She just believes that her luck in marrying man who happens to fall into her and brake her arm is just that, luck. In the end, she has to save herself from his 'accidents'. A quirky spin on how we view 'till death do us part'
Quick read - laughing out loud - don't want to put down. I think we can all relate to the plot.
GOOD BOOK, BUT IT'S A LIBRARY BOOK THAT THEY GOT RID OF
