And no, I'm going to tell you! It didn't get boring when she told us these memories, nor were they pointles One of my favorite books, Dear George Clooney: Please Marry my Mom is such a good book. I would recomend this book to anyone who likes humor, and anyone that can relate to the stress of a parent divorce It was funny, adventurous, and when i read the part about the Dad cheating on the mom When he was walking out putting on his belt it made me want to be there to slap him across the face.
To really show you just how wonderful this book is, I would pretty much have to reproduce its entire 229 pages here, which would probably get me sued.
You'd think, after what happened with Dad, that she'd given up on men and found contentment in a life dedicated to child-rearing, hard work, and celibacy. And the George Clooney parts made me snort, for real. On the other hand Violet is frusturated by her mom going on dates and she thinks all of them are losers. What agent or editor could turn down an opening like that?
In response to being treated so shabbily by her father, Violet feeds these sweet little baby girls who never did a thing to anyone cat turds. Thanks for a great review.
All of the characters and their complicated relationships are wonderfully realized. This tale of stroppy Violet trying to deal with her parents' break-up, a new step-family and her dad living miles away, is more formulaic than her usual, although always rescued by interestingly quirky characters and witty di I feel churlish giving a Susin Nielsen book only three stars because her books, like her central characters, are so flawed, warm and likeable.
I'm having nightmares right now Violet is such an awesome and funny chrarcter she makes everything over dramtic well she did see get moms boyfriend in his under pants. Three stars and a half. Overall this book was fantastic, I really liked it. There are some more mature scenarios and language, but it is a complex story that is worth reading. All Violet wants is for her mom to marry George Clooney and for no particular reason, she just likes him.
The books are nominated based on their quality and reader appeal. There is no deathbed conversion: through a series of strokes and general decline Jenkins remains egotistical, manipulative, and a knee-jerk misogynist. The first half of the book is a great way to expose these messy dynamics.
All these things looked good on my dad, but transplanted onto a scrawny girl like me, it was seriously unfortunate.
I loved how that was written.
She must confront the issues of dignity versus safety, the power shift that neither party desires, the division of responsibilities between adult siblings, and finally, end-of-life decisions, including euthanasia.
