I made a spur-of-the-moment decision to buy this book out of my need to read something different and a horrible case of reader's block. (Is that a thing? I think it should be.) It turns out that I made the perfect choice! This book is downright hilarious and a super quick read. It's easy to get lost in the weird situations and relationships of suburban life the author shares with us, and this book constantly reminds you of just how crazy people really are.
As to why I gave this book four stars--this is not the fault of the book or author. It's my fault; although I loved reading every chapter, there were a lot of things I couldn't relate to simply because I'm a) a lot younger than the author, b) only recently married and c) don't have kids. But that didn't make the book less enjoyable for me, and I still recommend it.
