When I first came across this book I thought this was the book for me and my husband. I pictured myself running up to him and making him look at the cartoon or passage I just read and us laughing together. I consider our relationship to be weird and we lovingly judge each other for it. So reading about another couple who are weird or weirder than us, was very compelling. What similarities did we have with each other, where my husband and I about to find out we are actually boring and normal?
The book was fun and was broken up with history stories and cartoons. All in all, I read it in one sit in and it flowed well. However, after reading it, I felt disappointed. The couple are cute and do, do weird things that people do in loving relationships but it felt too much like an inside joke between two people that I was peaking into. I’m sure if I wrote this book with my husband they would be saying the same. The beauty of a weird relationship is that it’s between two people and trying to explain it to everyone else means it doesn’t quite translate.
With all being said and done, this isn’t a bad book. It’s a book that you would read if you were in a situation where you forgot your current book and wanted something light to read.
