REVIEW for Marrying George Clooney

Thank you goes out to Andie at Perseus Books for sending along this great book to me.

TITLE: Marrying George Clooney
AUTHOR: Amy Ferris

GENRE: Humour
RATING: 4 Stars
First of all, I have to say that the title of this one grabbed me. Although I have never had a huge George Clooney fantasy (everytime I see him I see this huge sign flashing on his forehead "COMMITMENT PHOBE") and that is enough for me to run the other way:) Rather my book would probably be titled "Marrying John Cusack" (which I am thinking is also a commitment phobe - but what the heck - its a fantasy).
However, from the very first sentence in this book, I fell in love with both the author Amy Ferris AND the writing. I am in my late 40's and people around me have been telling me about perimenopause and menopause for years - actually, it feels as though I have been preparing for menopause all my life.... Reading about Amy's restless nights and fantasies, as well as all her mid-life crisis experiences (both real and imagined) made me laugh, cry and basically feel a little braver about the approaching big M.
I love that this woman was brave enough to put it down on a paper and to share it with us - I am hoping that by doing this, it made Ferris own mid life crisis a little easier. There is nothing like sharing with another person to lessen the burden and to help another and I loved this book so much, I am going to make sure to give it to another person to enjoy.

First, you will be fine with the BIG M! I have no problem except for an occasional hot flash but it wasn't bad. This does sound like a fun bool...and I too would want to read it just from the title..I mean, CLOONEY?!
