This is a book about a man getting back into life after the death of his wife (I promise that the rhyme was unintentional).
I thought this book was pretty interesting. There were parts that had me about in tears and then there were parts where I was either laughing out loud or groaning and not sure I wanted to read on (but that's because I'm the kind of person that doesn't want to see people get into trouble).
The main character had a pretty genuine voice, and there was a shift in him throughout the novel and certainly in the last couple of chapters. The other characters, such as his sisters, his step-son and the women he dates, also seemed fairly realistic.
The end of the book was a good ending (in my opinion) because it didn't give you everything, but at the same time it left you with the idea that things were definitely going to get better for the main character.
Loved this book. It was sad, happy, inspiring, and funny all in the same book. Great read.
I have read 2 books by this author, both have been really good reads. Funny and easy to get lost it!
Good book club choice. Fun quick read.
Great book. Enjoyed the characters and how they related to each other.
Jonathan Tropper doesn't disappoint.
I was a bit skeptical that I would like this book - the story line sounded a bit too much of a downer for my taste. But I took a chance and swapped for it, and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it - and I am finding it one of those books that is "staying with me" - thoughts about the book pop in and out of my head every now and then. Interesting characters, a fairly unique premise, and poignant moments with enough humor thrown in to keep from really bringing the reader down. I would recommend this book to any reader, male or female.
I loved this book, could not put it down! Jonathan Tropper is a great writer, he has a way of creating these families that are quirky but real. He touches on tough subjects but adds humor so it is not heavy and depressing. This was a great read.
While the story is actually kind of sad, the book is really good. The stepfather-stepson relationship had me rolling in laughter and the dating scenes made me wince.
Similar to the "The book of Joe". If you enjoyed that, you'll enjoy this. All good!
Wonderful book; interesting characters, good story.
Another great one by Tropper. I loved the characters, the pacing, and as always, Troppers great wit.
