To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really enjoyed the laidback feeling this memoir conveys. It has that kind of tone like a friend calling you up to see if you want to go run errands together, and I mean that in the best way. It has just a touch of a Nora Ephron feel to it. I liked the quotes that were sprinkled here and there too.
This is not a single story, but a small collection of brief... essays? Anecdotes? I'm not sure what to call them. Little stories that at time could use some fleshing out, but are still charming. Reminiscent of Erma Bombeck or Dave Barry, and I'm not actually sure if these are shorter than those articles, or if they just seem that way.
A journal of well-drawn mishaps for our heroine and her family, J and Tall among them, sharing snippets from their lives. The collection is written with a sense of humor and candor. Short pieces describe a variety of topics, such as menopause, an attack cat, adventurous dogs and yoga. No through line. The author uses exposition interspersed with dialogue and preceded by well-selected quotes. I found these morsels, blogs and quotes highly and perpetually engaging and entertaining. I wish it was a longer collection. Recommended.
