BLOG TOUR - Non Friction by Morgan Parker

After 12 years, 4 months and 1 and 1/2 weeks of marriage, his wife packs up and leaves with their daughter. So he writes an Indie novel. And it becomes a bestseller. Well, sort of.

His fame brings him the lifestyle of a rockstar, and he has the fan mail (i.e. female undergarments, probably clean) to prove it.

But seeing his fame, his wife suddenly believes in marriage counseling. Their homework: to create something beautiful for each other.

So he writes Our Story, his literary secret-weapon that will win his wife back. But in the process he discovers that true love is more than just ticking the right boxes on a checklist, it starts with.....well.....}i{

What I really enjoyed about this story was that it was focused issues with, not finding love, but holding onto it and maintaining that love after 12 years of marriage. This story focuses on Morgan and his wife who find themselves in the process of divorce. Where did it all go wrong? What happened to make them end up here? When his wife leaves with his daughter, Morgans life is completely turned upside down. He is lost, but the two agree to go to counseling and try to recover the love that they have lost.

I found this book to be a truly refreshing read. To me it seemed like it was a romantic comedy, but then with some parts became quite sad. This book is written by a man, in a man's point of view and this works perfectly. He already knows how a man would feel in this situation because he is one! I think that this helped add depth to Morgans character who I loved! How he interacted with those around him was beautiful, especially with his daughter and it was so nice to see a side to him like this.

The characters and situations faced in this story, are the kinds that people face everyday. It was believable and drew you in so you followed their journey with them. There are enough plot twists in the book to keep you guessing and engaged with the characters and story as a whole. There were some bits where I did feel myself lagging a little bit, but was mainly towards the end when he was writing a new book. I just felt like this wasn't really needed or added to the story in a major way, but it was a nice touch.

Overall a beautiful read, with characters you adore and a perfect touch of humour that will have you laughing out loud in some places. This is a real love story with an 'outside-looking-in' feel to it. A true gem to read.

My Rating

Morgan Parker is the pen name for a shy and introverted banker. He currently divides his time between Toronto, Canada and his imagination. When he isn’t writing or working with clients or relaxing at Balzac’s with a medium non-fat cappuccino, Morgan Parker enjoys spending time with his family. And sleeping, preferably on a bed (the left side) but depending on the day, he can pretty much curl up anywhere. No, he is not currently accepting applications for cuddling partners.
