Book Description

After 12 years, 4 months and 1 and 1/2 weeks of marriage, his wife packs up and leaves with their daughter. So he writes an Indie novel. And it becomes a bestseller. Well, sort of. 

His fame brings him the lifestyle of a rockstar, and he has the fan mail (i.e. female undergarments, probably clean) to prove it. 

But seeing his fame, his wife suddenly believes in marriage counseling. Their homework: to create something beautiful for each other. 

So he writes Our Story, his literary secret-weapon that will win his wife back. But in the process he discovers that true love is more than just ticking the right boxes on a checklist. It starts with... well... }i{ . 

My Thoughts

I found Morgan Parker's Non Friction }i{ to be a very funny book. 

This is the story of a marriage gone wrong, and then a comedy of errors when Morgan tries to win back "Princess Bitch" (his soon to be ex-wife) all while trying to get a bit from number one groupie Emma.

This book has been written in such a way that everybody can relate to what Morgan is going through. We have a fabulous supporting cast, and I am sure every reader has somebody in their life who is exactly like each and every character. This book gives a great mans point of view on events, and I think that is what made so many parts of it funny.

While the book started out at a relatively fast pace, about halfway through I found I was starting to tire of the same routine, and by the end found myself wishing that it would just hurry up and finish. Not that there is anything wrong with Morgan's writing style, I just found that the story was being drawn out, expecting something big to happen, and then well......
