Review: This is Where I Leave You
This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love. Love. Love. Funniest book I've read in a while. Really honest book as well. Honest about marriage, families, adultery and growing up. Growing up sucks, omg it sucks and this helps remind you that even though it sucks it's hilarious and tragic and real. I've been meaning to read this book for a while and finally got around to it cause the movie comes out soon, can't wait to see it and hope they do a good retelling. One of my favorite thing about this book is how totally quotable it is! I highlighted so many things on my nook! I keep reading things over and over again because they're true or funny, or both.
"My marriage ended the way these things to: with paramedics and cheesecake"
"If you've ever been in a failed marriage, and statistically speaking, it's a safe bet that you have, or, if not, that you soon will be, then you'll know that the first thing you do at the end is reflect on the beginning" TRUTH!
"Do you believe in God - Not really, no - Then why do we come here? - I've been wrong before" abbreviated but still a great quote.
"The old expression goes: A good speech is like a woman's skirt: short enough to hold your attention, long enough to cover the subject"
I really enjoyed this book.
