The Theory of Happily Ever After


I almost didn’t finish this book. I order a lot of books so I couldn’t remember what this was when I first received it. I thought it might be a nonfiction book on marriage. I want to thank the publisher Revell for providing me with a copy of this book so that I can write an honest review. When I read the first few chapters, all I saw was a book that was silly and frivolous. But, I persevered and discovered that this was a novel, a comedic novel on romance. As I read through it I realized that the author had written a somewhat bizarre novel that was more of a caricature of people going through the trials and tribulations of romantic encounters. I can’t imagine anyone that I know going through these experiences. I don’t want to give a spoiler of the actual events, but let’s just say that some of the experiences in this book are at the extremes of the imagination. It is a well-written book, but the comedy is what I would describe as “zany”, which is I’m certain was the author’s intent given the cover art and her other books. Kristen Billerbeck writes zany well, even if this type of story is not exactly my cup of tea.
