BUY THE BOOK: A Walk In The Snark
Amazon.com Book Description:
Rachel Thompson, author of A Walk In The Snark, writes non-fiction that makes you laugh and think. Stranded in Orange County, CA (the OC), she's a redhead in a sea of blondes, who decided to use her voice as a way to differentiate herself from the SUVs and fake boobs that surround her every day. This chick is all real and isn't afraid to say so.
Her Mancode and Chickspeak essays speak volumes about how men and women communicate (or fail to), while her more serious pieces about parenting, work, and lost love will tear at your heart.
With her trademark snarky humor and candor, Rachel whisks you into her caffeinated world where she deconstructs common phrases (I'm Fine) and makes up words (Refrigeratoritis) in order to help dudes understand chicks ... and vice versa.
My Book Review:
Are you ready to read a hilarious take on the age old battle of the sexes: men vs. women, and how they approach things differently? According to Rachel Thompson, the author of A Walk In The Snark, "Men are from Seinfeld, Women are from Friends." This book reads like a relationship guidebook for men and women: she discusses how men live by a set of "Mancode" rules that drives women crazy, while women utilize "Chickspeak," a language that women understand but men just don't get, and probably never will. In between the obvious snarky comedic look at how different men and women really are, the author also provides the readers with a poignant look into her life with her family, and talks about a past abusive relationship that much later turned into a sad story of lost love.
A Walk In The Snark, is a wickedly humorous book that centers around the relationship communication concept that "men speak directly in a point, while women speak in circles." Communication, communication, communication! There are so many funny parts in this book that both sexes can laugh about: "manesia," "chick lists," "shopping," "closet space," "paper towel wars," "remote control hoarder," "cold feet" ... and these are just some of the topics covered by The Queen of Snark ... have I whet your appetite enough to read the book? *snickers*
Just like in her second book, The Mancode: Exposed, Rachel's witty take on men, women, relationships and stereotypes will have you laughing from beginning to end, you'll be shaking your head in agreement, and it will leave you pondering about your own relationship. So step into Rachel's world, and let A Walk In The Snark be your entertainment for the night!
RATING: 5 STARS *****
