    "People Who are Married Want to be Married"

    This memoir is far from the happy ending that is expected. This New York Times Bestseller tells the story of a thirty year old woman who is far behind in her life, she isn't married, doesn't have a job and to make matters worse she can't find a man . The memoir begins with Amy Cohen loosing the guy that she always thought she was going to marry (Josh) while then trying to overcome the loss of her mother. To make matters even worst her father starts dating again, and to Amy's dismay she finds that her father has more dates then she has. Through coping with the difficulties of dating, Amy then contracts a severe rash on her face that puts her into hiding in her apartment for a year, where she then tries to forget all her memories of her ex(Josh). Throughout the story, as there seems to be hope for Amy, fate strikes her again. It seems that as a new man that enters into Amy's life everything seems great, but by the end he seems to almost break her down a little bit more than the last guy did. The end of this story takes a turn for the better when Amy is finally able to say, "I do." I enjoyed every page of this unpredictable invigorating story. The memoir in itself is an original and realistic story that can be enjoyed by all.

    Read this book!

    Laugh-out-loud funny (you'll have to resist the temptation to read the funny parts out loud to those around you), yet very poignant. Hilarious stories of the author's misadventures in dating, moving stories of her life's challenges and family's trials. A unique glimpse into someone's real life, real thoughts & feelings, and real successes.

    Just so-so

    Although slightly humorous, this book never really grabs the reader. You keep reading to find out what happens but nothing ever does. It's just a bunch or random stories from the authors life that never really tie together. I read this for a book club and didn't get it completely finished before our meeting. I was the only one to read this book for that meeting and several people wanted to know how it ended. I actually lied and made up an ending- I later finished the book and as it turns out, I was right! It just goes to show that this book is uneventful and predictable.

    A Very Personal and Funny Look Into A Modern Single WOman's Life

    Thank you, Amy, for your openess, sharing a very difficult time in your life. Losing a parent is one of the hardest things. There is never a good time but especially when you are looking for relationship advice.<BR/>It was funny and moving at the same time. There were so many times that I was nodding my head going through the same thing. It is nice to know that other women are going through the same things.

    Loved It

    If you like 'Sex in the City', then you'll love Amy Cohen's writing. She tells this story in a wonderful and entertaining manor. Any women or man for that matter, who has been single, can relate to her humorous stories. I highly recommend this book.

    Great book!

    Amy is a great storyteller whose sense of humor really comes through in her writing. Even during sad times, she finds a way to bring out the humorous side of the situation. Her story and writing style really held my attention.
