The Man Who Fell In Love With His Wife Reviews
I read the first three chapters (5%) and it was just dull and kind of irritating. Not at all funny, and I couldn't even tell what was supposed to be funny about it - if it is supposed to be funny? The reviews on the cover seem to imply it is, but if so I don't get it. I didn't like the characters and I didn't care about any potential problems they may have (which have yet to be introduced by the end of the third chapter).
An unexpected good read. Enjoyable quips. I'd rather read Burke for a lighthearted, quick read than Patterson's plot holed novels churned out on a production line.
Had to read this one in a bit of a panic, as I looked on Talisweb and saw that someone had ordered it and it was due back quite quickly. Rankin was pushed to one side to make way for this.Gentle is the word that I would use to describe this follow up to Father Frank, which I haven't read.Father Frank is a former catholic priest who gives up his vocation due to not believing in God and the fact that he has met a woman.Repetitively, we constantly hear about what a wonderful woman she is and what a wonderful man he is and the author constantly carps on about the reasons for giving up his priesthood. You get the point quite quickly and it grates the amount of time that this is referred to. Annoying.So Father Frank takes a job as a cabbie, takes his record collection out of retirement and starts djing at a club. His mrs. applies for and gets a job in america but finds out she is pregnant with twins and the pair of them worry about how they are going to cope financially when she gives up her job.Rather strangely, he is offered a job as a church of England vicar, which despite the not believing in god, it looks like he will take.All very gentle and nice but you couldn't help wanting a bit more drama and some more Human characters with slightly less altruistic traits.
This is the sequel to Father Frank, which I enjoyed enough to put the sequel on my wishlist. I actually found this at a booksale when I was in Auckland earlier this month, all books for $1 (I was good and only bought 5). I enjoyed this a lot! A few things did seem a little off, I can't imagine anyone completely sorting out and coping with having twins in 10 weeks, and there did seem to be solutions to problems in every single chapter. But then I think that if you're open to solutions then they do come to you, so I guess in that regard it's kind of true. The book just sometimes felt like problem, solution, problem, solution, etc, etc! But I really did enjoy it!
Blah ... expected it to be better then just an ex-Priest trying to adjust to real life with a working, pregnant with twins wife by DJ'ing and driving a cab ...!!!
Even though this one is not as nice as Father Frank, it was also a joy to read.
I'd read it only for the novelty of the story. Don't expect drop-dead gorgeous prose.
Nice entertainment, I like the characters described and the author's language. Not a book that will change my life, though.
