"Tell the story of your marriage," my young friend Niki says to me. "Write down how it is you have a happy marriage"' But the story of my marriage, which is the great joy and astonishment of my life, is too much like a fairy tale, the German kind, unsweetened by Disney.
This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination. Chock full of beauty, truth, and humor, and, in trademark Ann Patchett style, possessing an uncanny ability to feel both surprising and familiar at the same time, this essay is a perfect, if unconventional, holiday listen.
Enjoyable and pleasant to listen to
An enjoyable story about Ann Patchett's current marriage and her road to getting there. I'm a huge fan of Patchett and this did not disappoint. I've always wished I could sit down and chat with her and this memoir was like sitting with a friend having a cup of coffee while she tells me how she got where she is today. Patchett narrates and has a fluid and expressive way of speaking that was pleasant to listen to.
I really loved this book, I think it you are a married woman or in a long term relationship you should deffently take a few hours and either read or listen to this book..
