Oh my ... Matt Dunn as a Kindle First option for the month... how very exciting... Matt Dunn is an author that just makes me laugh, his writing is so real, yet so full of warmth... I adore the books I have read of his.. from my favourite ‘A day at the office’ to ‘Home’ to ‘What might have been’ so I knew I was in for a literary treat with ‘At the wedding’ and I read most of it smiling or chuckling...
So it starts with a proposal... not just any proposal... heavily pregnant Livia telling her beau of over 10years that in fact their romantic weekend away is actually going to be their wedding....Poor Jed isn’t so enamored with changing things up... Why fix what ain’t broke after all?
‘At the Wedding’ had me laughing... from the dysfunctional friends to the disappearing bride and groom to the fabulous Spanish backdrop... it’s Human folly at its most endearing ... was there a great reveal... no - angst?... no; yet cringe worthy real moments aplenty smashed together with personality explosions makes this special. Was it my favourite Matt Dunn - probably not... but it was a wonderful heartfelt, fun, beautiful read... 4.5Stars!!
Another fun read courtesy of the author Matt Dunn. I've read a number of Matt's books and they are always entertaining and super easy to read with his loveable characters that you feel you know. I'm not usually a romantic book reader so maybe it's because these are written by a male that makes them so enjoyable. Look forward to the next one!
Another fun but insightful read from Matt. Quirky but recognisable characters, given to us in a very readable story. The more of Matt's books I read, the more I see the layers, and cogitate upon the human condition.
