Présentation de l'éditeur

Welcome to the story of a real marriage.

Marriage is simultaneously the biggest blessing and the greatest challenge two people can ever take on. It is the joy of knowing there is someone to share in your joys and sorrows, and the challenge of living with someone who thinks it’s a good idea to hang a giant antelope head on your living room wall.

In The Antelope in the Living Room, New York Times best-selling author and blogger Melanie Shankle does for marriage what Sparkly Green Earrings did for motherhood—makes us laugh out loud and smile through tears as she shares the holy and the hilarity of that magical and mysterious union called marriage.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Date Night Book Ever 4 février 2014
Par Ann in Canada - Publié sur
About one of the only books I've seen my husband read in oh, the last 25 years? Since Mr. Reed's English class.

He randomly picked it up and couldn't stop reading, couldn't stop smiling, couldn't stop laughing out loud. Then reading it out loud to me. I thought my heart might split for the happiness. Melanie Shankle is one amazingly funny writer!

A book for every married couple, and the best spontaneous date night ever...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must read!!! 5 février 2014

This book is laugh out loud funny with spiritual and marital truths sprinkled in! There are a lot of books that get a lot of hype and when you read them you start to wonder what those people were thinking. This is NOT one of those books! I read Melanie's blog every morning and she is genuinely funny! You won't regret buying this!

Oh my goodness, Melanie has done it again! She has followed her wonderful Sparkly Green Earrings with The Antelope In The Living Room. What a great read about the realities of marriage! This book should probably be required reading for anyone planning a fairy tale wedding! Nothing against those weddings, but as Melanie says, that's the easy part. Melanie shares some hysterical stories of her marriage and draws some great Biblical insight from the situations she and husband Perry have found themselves in. Her voice is real and reading her work is just like talking with a good friend. She is never heavy or overbearing and is always ready to laugh at herself.

I read mostly to be entertained, encouraged or edified.The Antelope In The Living Room did all three. Highly recommend.

I was looking forward to this book as a humorous take on marriage. As a big fan of the late Erma Bombeck, the hole she left in the world of satirical writing has not been filled. I suppose it's very wrong to put such high expectations on a writer. Still, even after lowering the proverbial bar, I was rather underwhelmed by this author's matrimonial and family musings.

About halfway through the book, the picture I had was of a woman sitting at a keyboard desperately trying to find ways to make her everyday experiences seem funny enough to fill up a book. At three quarters of the way through, I gave up hope of even cracking a smile. Some of the stories were cute and mildly funny, but other than that, it certainly didn't live up to its back page promise of laughter and tears. Most of the time I kind of just felt sorry for her husband and the shrill way she treated him at time.

The last quarter of this book has gone u read for a couple of weeks now. Maybe the last couple stories are the salvation for this book, but after the disappointment of the majority if the book, I can't bring myself to pick it up again and finish.

After 18 years of marriage, I found myself thinking of instances in the past that were more entertaining than these, and maybe that's the point — to make the reader remember the great and funny times in their own lives rather than solely from the book. It certainly does do that, which is why it gets two stars. Maybe other readers will be more amused by the author's takes on married life, but unfortunately I wasn't. She came across too harshly for me to really relate to her, which is likely a big part of why I didn't find her writing to be funny. If you enjoyed her prior book, give this one a try. Maybe that one has more depth and history that allows the reader to feel a connection to the author and her family, as this book doesn't. Without it, this book is missing a crucial part.

Having been married almost 20 years, I really enjoy books that show the funny side of marriage. We all have plenty of challenges to face on a daily basis, so being able to have a laugh is a great way to bring joy into our lives and I was hoping this book would do just that. Unfortunately The Antelope in the Living Room didn’t even come close for me. Based on the reviews, I was expecting to laugh out loud; instead I barely found reason to smile. I kept hoping the next chapter would get better, but they never did and I gave up half way through. With limited free time to read it just wasn’t worth continuing when I could move on to one of the many authors whose work I know I love.
