The Wedding almost seemed like it was specifically written for me to hate and it s been a long time since I ve disliked a book this much There s no real art to it people are white as paper and so forth , but it s written for people who don t exactly have alternative lifestyles or world views The baby boomer housewife married her husband because he respected her desire to be a housewife at a time when most people our age wanted to change the world, and she knew he d be a good provider As someone who eloped and really upset her mother , I flinched when the wife freaked out just because her daughter wanted a small wedding and says she would be horrified if her daughter had eloped The entire book is devoted to wedding plans the narrator will say something like I spent the afternoon in my den making calls for the wedding and then DETAIL them called the sheetrock guy, who saidcalled the gardener, who said These are conversations that bore me in real life, so why would I want to read them in a book I m ostensibly reading for pleasure And it is so over the top the daughter asks her mom to be her matron of honor, and then there s a twist at the end that is impossible to believe would ever happen Still, there are folks that will love this book despite its sappiness, and I don t want to rain on their parade than I already have. Library Overdrive Audiobook.narrated by Tom WopatI can t remember for the life of me when I last read a Nicholas Sparks bookor which one or if I read than one I remember reading 1 book though for sure and have seen a couple of his movies so although I had no idea what the specifics were going to be when I saw the Audiobook pop up on my library feed as available now I knew enough in general that his books movies were love stories sweet touching predictable with old fashion values I say that as a good thing , and is as American as apple pie or was our country has been changing as you ve noticed Also there would be no graphic sex scenes So.given that I recently read 4 books about African Americans I Know Why Caged Birds Sing Heads of the Colored People Friday Black Washington Black.I thought hm, when s the last time I read a book that was specifically about caucasian characters None came to mind not like this This isn t a WWII book an immigration book not a book about rape or abuse or murder or a kidnap no major accident or disability not a heavy political novel either..so my hunch was right this novel is primarily about a caucasian couple and their relationship and or A WEDDING.but WHAT ELSE I wasn t completely ignorant about the type of book I chose but..I WAS ACTUALLY CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT THEIR issues would be So.May I be serious now Tom Wopat was TERRIFIC as the voice narrator He was easy on the ears.very natural to listen to The issue at hand is actually something very real It s very common for a married couple who ve been married 20 years to have experienced the same issues that Wilson Jane did in this novel Wounds hurt wounds happen.such as what happened with Jane and Wilson Jane was quietly hurting for a long time and that hurt came to a head when Wilson forgot their 29th wedding anniversary This story is written from the male s perspective Some married women might wish their husbands listened to this Audiobook.There is a lot of self reflection.As the story unfolds we see the effort the work that Wilson makes to heal those wounds to transform himself little by little The guy doesn t give up Truthfully any wife would be moved by the steps Wilson took to show Jane how committed he was to generating life love romance and sincere vitality of freshness in their relationship.Many other gem stories characters within these pages with a wonderful ending I liked itfor what this book was lighter issues than world issues yet some very real personal ones between couples who have been married a long time raised kids have lived busy somewhat parallel lives with different rushing around schedules passing each other a little too often with great solutions.
