Hilarious book about adult children trying to marry off their annoying mother.
A genuinely funny book, there are parts that had me rolling on the floor. I also liked how well the author portrayed a cast of characters who are all 40+.
This is a funny, sweet story that makes for a great weekend read. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Although in the beginning I wasn't sure I liked any of the main characcters, as the story progressed I began to appreciate each of them. And, as they grew, I grew to like them very much. I recommend this highly to anyone who enjoys spending some time with a smart, funny, well-written story.
A genuinely funny book, parts of it had me laughing my ass off. It's also a refreshing change; the characters are multi-dimensional and written with a caring hand, something many people probably wouldn't consider doing for a cast of characters who are 40+.
This book will make you laugh out loud, so I would advise you to not read it in a hospital waiting room or on a plane. This is the kind of book you'll want to read while by yourself. Olivia Goldsmith's portrayal of the characters as so funny and the story line could really relate to a lot of us out there. This definitely would make a great movie with Doris Roberts playing the mother. Great book. I want to read more of Olivia Goldsmith's books.
