In her lifei was glad i read it it was interesting never a dull moment as real life really isa Once again proof that bloggers aren t necessarily book authors Blog reading is free so one can be generous with the ality of writing and storytelling Ree s problem is not that she can t write but like many bloggers turned authors is that she didn t write book but strung blog posts together and added some new material The last third of BHtTW is the best written section most likely because wasn t originally a series of blog posts polished The Hokku or Epigram Versus of Basho up and presented between a book binding Outside the idea that blog style writing does not a memoir make what really irritated me was that the storytelling sucked Marlboro Man and it really bothered me that she didn t ever refer to him by his name came across as invented Despite having read the blog for several years I just couldn t believe this guy was a real person In fact it all seemed contrived These people are like cardboard cut outs with no personalities That s not the fault of the characters but the writer Another thing that irritated me was her obsession with reminding the reader how privileged herpbringing was Without any context to temper what came off as entitlement In short I imagine that BHtTW is less a memoir and of a re imagining much like personal blog posts and Facebook Prison Ramen updates everywhere I m only in chapter 3 and already I ve decided that this woman isn t a good person So far she s a wimp a cheater and a dog killer and as far as I can tell she doesn t feel bad about any of it And the way she writes for her stuttering developmentally disabled brot I really wanted to like this book After all Ree Drummond is not only a beautiful blogtographer but she is also the creator of the most delicious breakfast casserole I have ever tasted in my life But This book was terrible So terrible in fact that I would have jumped ship after 50 pages had it not been this month s book club selection Every chapter was an endless repetitive gushing soft porny account of how the blogess was rescued from her short lived California vegetarian feminist ideals by her own personal cowboy messiah Apparently her four year stint at one of the most expensive private colleges in California did not include any curriculum covering third wave feminism Her constant cast of her husband as her savior her words made his character seem contrived and her story insincere Even worse the writing was so cheesy Corporate hometown But before I knew it I'd been struck with a lightning bolt and I was completely powerless to stop itRead along as I recount the rip roaring details of mynlikely romance with a chaps wearing cowboy from the early days of our courtship complete with cows horses prairie fire and passion all the way through the.

This book screamed I AM PHONY AND SELF INDULGENT AS HELL pretty much from page 1 but I persisted ntil 50% when I lost patience and the last tiny shred of interest and decided that enough is enough The problem with publishing a bunch of blog posts as a book is that it reads like a bunch of blog posts choppy hastily written and desperately in need of a good editor Drummond s writing is rife with bad cliches and superfluous adjectives and at times I wasn t sure if it was her future husband she was in love with or her own cooking or Anne Klein jeans Also a sore spot the plot was flat and strangely vague at times the reader is given play by plays of their makeout sessions but beyond physical attraction little to no mention is made of what they have in common What do they talk about DO they talk She spends a great deal of time agonizing internally over her parents doomed nion and how terribly inconvenient the timing is for her wanting very much not to tell her boyfriend about it yet later on it seems he knows all about it without her mentioning that she told him Huge plot hole The only redeeming element of the book is that their love and lust for one another is apparent which is lucky because Drummond s writing leaves much to be desired i just recently discovered thepioneerwomancom websiteblog so i was really interested in how ree drummond got her city self onto this ranch in the middle of nowhere i HAD to read this book the book is very real she writes about the feelings the happenings the Fearful Symmetry unexpected crap that everyone goes through in their lives and about how you deal with it or how you don tshe had a lot of things going on in her life and she got a lot of stuff dumped on her in a short amount of time we all have times in our lives where it just seems like it isn t just raining it s POURING but through all of that she definitely recognizes the blessings in her life as well i think it is a very relatable booki love the way she is SO IN LOVE with her man the story of how they met like the first 13 12 of the book was SO ROMANTIC oooh I wanted my OWN cowboy by the time she was done recounting her romance but the book also goes into the time they spent planning their wedding their first year of marriage all the things they were dealing with throughout this time in their lives it just sort of made her less of a celebrity personality of a real person for me to be reading about the stuff she went through at this time. That's when I saw him the cowboy across the smoky roomI'll never forget that night It was like a romance novel an old Broadway musical and a John Wayne western rolled into one Out for aick drink with friends I wasn't looking to meet anyone let alone a tall rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured.

Hat I began reading aloud paragraphs to Sam to amuse myself Sam was not as amused considering he was already asleep when I began doing this I wish there was an option for negative stars as this book definitely does not deserve a single star It was beyond horrible She writes like a 12 year old girl and comes off as a self absorbed prima donna She runs over her dog without any grief her parents divorce when she was 27 and it s all about her Then the fact that she is so overly dramatic about everything She s sick the first day of her honeymoon and its oh my husband is going to leave me and fly back to the US It was just exhausting After 31 chapters I just had to put it down I could not make myself read any Unless you are a spoiled 12 year old girl with nothing better to do because you are waiting for a prince on a white horse save yourself and skip this book This was the perfect diversion to normal life I loved it I love her and I love Marlboro man I can t wait for this to become a movie Some of the reviews are harsh so I do advise perusing her blog before reading the book to get who she is Maybe you won t like it still but I found her totally relatable like I was sitting and listening to a good friend and wished I could have swapped stories of dating courtship embarrasing moments and babiesso read it and lets chat Ree for the love of God put down the adjectives and walk away Does everything need at least two descriptors No Does anyone need to refer to their gestating body three times in the space of a page and a half NO The seventy five plus times Marlboro Man was referred to as rugged and muscular was a little confusing too I don t The Beast on the Brink understand is he rugged and muscular or notWhile we re at it referring to him as Marlboro Man on the blog is one thing but it seriously does not work in the book I m sorry how do you recount your own wedding and neverse the man s actual nameThere s a whole pile of other issues involving her nameless Marlboro Man savior coming in and sweeping her off her feet and saving her from a life of rban vegetarian sushi eating so she can go cook him steak in the middle of the prairie and pop out babies he wants six she thinks she might want one but he s working on her Eww but I m not even going to go there This book had potential but it never reallytook flight I was annoyed with the author for spending an absolutely absurd amount of the book reiterating how in love she was with her cowbo.
