Cakes, and books, amongst other tops Dan s lists reveal that he is a lovely person who loves his wife and family and will do whatever it takes to make them happy, even if it means robbing a bunch of senior citizens at Bingo night When I first started reading Twenty one Truths About Love, I was a little upset when I flipped through the book to see that the entire book is made up of lists I made some faces and grumbled a lot about how I wasn t going to like this book, and then started reading And I read and read and read Before I knew it, I was of the way through and enjoying every minute of it Somehow, through these lists, Dicks creates a multidimensional character in Dan he is flawed, lovable, and relatable Dan stumbles a lot but through his ups and downs, he offers up bits of wisdom about life and love This book is filled with humor, heart, and lots of love I recommend for a light, fun read I won a copy of this book through a GoodReads giveaway Twenty one truths about this book 1

their financial condition from Jill, but doesn t seem to have any meaningful communication with her at all 3 he dislikes Jill s dog 4 Dan is a total wimp 5 Dan is a complete Idiot when it comes to thinking of ways out of his financial difficulties 6 I like thank you notes I think one of the few things that Dan and I agree on is that The Alchemist is a horrible book It s an extremely fast read Parts are funny, although not as many as I would have liked My final thoughts on the book 1 it s hard to really like a book when you think the main character is an idiot 2 the lists format got old and started irritating me 3 I couldn t believe that a real person would be writing so many damn lists especially while doing other things 4 I loved Bill Donovan and wish I had a friend like him My thanks to netgalley and St Martin s Press for an advance copy of this book
