Reviewed by Wen Lung for Readers' Favorite

In the midst of a bitter argument, Venice Goldsmith felt only hatred in every fibre of her being for her husband, Marco; the slippery slope of divorce seemed preordained in their short 3-month long marriage. However, determined to solve their differences, Marco and Venice seek help from a supposed marriage guru, Garfield Moody, who suggests a bizarre 14-page contract stipulating the dos, don’ts and the consequences of violating any of these predetermined rules of their marriage. The book takes its reader on a hilarious and intimate journey of two incompatible people and their resolve to make their marriage work.

There was never a dull moment in this book. The author wittingly takes the reader from one dramatic event to the next, making it impossible to put the book down. He intuitively picked on believable scenarios married couples fight about and turned it into a laughable moment with the introduction of the contract. The characters in the book have a sneaky way of growing on you; from the snotty Venice Goldsmith to the good-for-nothing Benjamin (brother of Marco), by the end of the book, you’d feel so much for these characters that they’d almost feel related to you in some weird illogical planet in your previous life. This easy read is light-hearted, entertaining, and a true reflection of the jocularity of James Fant. Word of caution – don’t attempt to read this before you sleep, it is the kind of book you’d lose sleep on just because it keeps you on the edge of your seat! And when you finally get to that last page, it leaves you hungry for more.
