Overview


While wide awake in the middle of the night (welcome to menopause!), Amy Ferris began chronicling every one of her funny, sad, hysterical, down and dirty, and raw to the bones stories. Along with fantasizing about marrying George Clooney, Ferris is faced with a plethora of other insomnia-induced thoughts and activities. From googling old boyfriends to researching obscure and fatal diseases on the web; from scouting five-star spa destinations to having angry, bitter, e-mail exchanges with her brother. She worries endlessly about her husband, relies heavily on Ambien, and tries to arrange care via the Internet for her mother (who has both severe dementia and a massive love-bubble crush on Jesus Christ)—all while refraining from lighting up just one more cigarette. Marrying George Clooney explores a range of emotions experienced through this life-altering period. In this candid look at "the change," Ferris offers a humorous spin on a not-so-funny topic.

    Loved this book

    I enjoyed the journey with Amy. She was real and unsensored. I laughed and cried and was able to relate to some of her "mid-life" struggles and was happy for her that she has Ken to journey with.

    Highly recommended

    Who knew Menopause could be fun? In those wakeful, sweaty nights Amy Ferris made me feel like I was not alone and certainly not INSANE. She is hilarious, irreverent and more delightful than hot fudge on cold ice cream.
    MGC feels like the start of a revolution; one that says menopause is a movement not a decline. You will laugh until you wet your pants (cause that's another fun thing that comes with menopause). Read it and pass it all to all your friends.

    more from this reviewer

    In so many ways, this book was all about me.

    Amy's journey through menopause was laugh-out-loud hysterical, truth at its rawest (is that a real word?), and sad at the same time. In her, I see what I am currently going through and her Ken is my Kevin. And while we also share brothers (Amy, I so understand), I don't yet share in what she went through with her mother. It makes me sad to think that my day may be coming.

    I plan to buy paper copies of this and share it with many of my non-Nook girlfriends who are experiencing much of the same!

    Middle Aged Boomers Will Relate

    Throughtout the book I kept wondering if I could find a man as wonderful as Ms. Ferris' spouse. I remember the insomnia, the thoughts, the long distance calls and visits and Ms. Ferris has accurately and hilariously captured it all. I even (and continue) to have issues with my brother stemming from the final care of our parents. I liked this book so much I passed it on with the instruciton to share it with as many women as possible. I loved her patience and the scenes from the nursing home and her loving and accepting way with her mother as she slipped further into the unique world that is dementia.
