Not the humor novel you'd expect, but still good
Let me start by saying that I purchased this book based on the opening paragraphs that you can browse before you purchase. The first sentence was a great hook, '... in case I ever accidently kill my mother on purpose'. The part about 'This is for if the coroner says, 'It looks like she fell down the stairs. Three times' was one of the funniest bits that got my interest. I bought this hoping for almost 300 hundred pages of belly rolling funny. Unfortunately, this was not that kind of book. Of course, there were sprinklings of great one-liners and some characters that were so embarrassing I wanted to climb under a small table to hide while bringing a flashlight so I could continue to read under the tablecloth. Overall the book has some humor tucked in the covers between some serious family disfunction and a couple of steamy men. I'd recommend this as a 'light read' for anyone who enjoys chicklit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
