    ePUB Wife 22 ePUB ¸ ´ opel rallye.de ´ wife ebok, Wife 22 PDFSo cute So clever So nauseatingShe spends too much time online Can she reconnect with her husband? Can she recover her creative spark and become the playwright she once wanted to be? What about her children? Is her son gay not that there's anything wrong with that her best friend is a hip lesbian Is her daughter bulimic or is it something much ridiculous and twee? Oh the handwringing

    ePUB Wife 22 ePUB ¸ ´ opel rallye.de ´ wife ebok, Wife 22 PDFHave you ever picked up a book you've had for a few years read it and then think why didn't I read this the first day I got it? Summed up that is this book for me at least in my opinionThis book was witty sarcastic comical and downright real to life These characters were true to form people that reminded me of a lot of people that I know This is an easy to read novel that makes you want to see how things pan out for all involved Alice a mid 40s woman is going through a type of breakdown and she thinks her son is gay and her daughter has an eating disorder Her husband William doesn't seem to know who she is any and they have drifted That's w

    ePUB Wife 22 ePUB ¸ ´ opel rallye.de ´ wife ebok, Wife 22 PDFThe title conjures images of polygamy but this is very much a novel of modern monogamy Along with traditional narration the story unfolds in a series of Facebook and Twitter updates text messages e mails Google searches and even playwriting scenes This can be disorienting at times but it effectively mimics the minute by minute need to know lifestyle of the typical plugged in American For an atypical mostly unplugged American like me this was uite a revelation Alice Buckle is a war

REALLY?Maybe it's all about from whence you approached this book Maybe you've been reading a lot of even dumber chick lit books and you now think you have in your hand our answer to Bridget Jones you do not whereas I was hoping for something actually clever and found myself with a work that was along the lines of the colossally disappointing Weird Sisters which is to say yet another pretentious book endeavoring to be than what it is and falling so terribly shortWife 22's title as the author makes sure to call your attention to is a reference to Catch 22 as in the idea that in marriage the ualities you fall for are often the ones you end up resenting Well this is an interesting concept but the protagonist is an absolute wash cloth in being courted somewhat barbarically by a seemingly already taken man she never uite becomes the girl he supposedly fell for at least not for this reader She is awkward wimpy weak and checks her f

    ePUB Wife 22 ePUB ¸ ´ opel rallye.de ´ wife ebok, Wife 22 PDFA novel about Alice Buckle a failed playwright now teaching drama to 3rd graders whose looming 45th birthday anniversary of her mother's death and 20th wedding anniversary throw her into a midlife crisis so she takes part in a marriage survey and ends up having an emotional online affair with the researcher Since the affair takes place via email and Facebook much of the book is also written in the style of emails Facebook posts chats texts tweets and Google searches—which was gimmicky and a good way to avoid creating characters with any depth Alice Buckle is a self centered neurotic and a terrible wife and friend The last thing I want is to be reading her Facebook pageAlso a gimmick chapters written in Alice's survey answers but without the uestions to match So we get to read things like 49 Sometimes; 50 Eggs and cream; 51 When she says I do How cute and uirky Just kidding Even worse then we reach the end of the book only to find the entire list of uestions in an appendix by whi

    ePUB Wife 22 ePUB ¸ ´ opel rallye.de ´ wife ebok, Wife 22 PDFSPOILERSSometimes you read a book and wonder if it was calculated to annoy you How did the author of Wife 22 know all the tricks to make me roll my eyes shout oh come on and eventually toss the book away from me in disgust? I guess I should give her mad props for knowing me so well but instead I'm just going to complain about her trite cliched and ultimately offensive novelIt's a bad sign when a writer includes Facebook statuses message boards and text messages in her book I can see the temptation these forms of communication are pervasive in our lives and it seems like a fun way of expressing all the thoughts and interactions of the heroine But the writer tries to be so cute with everything The screen names the teenager style texts the Google search results I couldn't stop imagining the author smiling to h
