Read full description of the books Two Gentlemen Sharing:I don't know why all the low ratings for this book. Look, this book isn't world-changing. It's not angst and heavy drama, not going to pluck deep thought and emotions from the reader. And usually those are things I look for in a book.
So, why did I like this book so much? Well, I had just finished a brutally grotesque book called Geek Love (which I reviewed and gave 5 stars)and my mind was worn out from that. I loved that book, but after all the ugliness of it, I needed something light and airy. I asked friends on facebook for a book that would make me laugh, and didn't demand too much thought. A new friend recommended Two Gentlemen Sharing. When I looked it up on Amazon it sounded like s delightful romp, one that would allow me to strenghten my emotional psyche while at the same time not bore the hell out of me. Then it was only in paperback, so I almost didn't buy it. I much prefer my kindle.
I'm so glad I did buy it. The book was fun, light, made me smile a lot, laugh some, and in general lightened my mood. I would think anyone who read the description (which is short excerpt) and the review from Publishers Weekly would be able to figure out this book is a light spoof and not expect it to be a main course for the mind, but simply a delightfully sweet dessert.
I fell a little bit in love with Bless and cheered for him as he handled one social calamity after another. Every character in the story was developed, I could picture each in my mind.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a beach read or a novel that simply lets them relax and unwind. A book doesn't always have to rip my guts out to be good. Sometimes my guts need time to heal. This was that balm.
