This is a collection of humorous essays about Jim Gaffigan’s life as a father, husband, and shepherd of 5 kids.
What I Liked About It:
I’ll be honest. For the first eighty pages I was worried that it was going to be one of those books that was kind of sweet. Then around page eighty Jim Gaffigan had me snorting in bed as I quietly tried to read this book next to my sleeping husband. Which was what I was expecting, since watching his standup always makes me laugh. He kept it up until the last. . . oh, ten pages, when he wrapped it up in a sweet and heartwarming way. So if I really wanted to summarize this book, I’d say: hilarious and heartwarming. Love how much he loves his family!
What I Didn’t Like About It:
Nothing! Loved it all around.
You’re going to like this if you have kids. If you don’t, you may not be able to appreciate it as well, but I’d at least give it a try, because I really enjoyed it.
