    Description

    In a time when much of the country sees red whenever the subject of gay marriage comes up, Dan Savage - outspoken author of the column Savage Love - makes it personal.

    Dan Savage’s mother wants him to get married. His boyfriend, Terry, says “no thanks” because he doesn’t want to act like a straight person. Their 6-year-old son, D.J., says his two dads aren’t “allowed” to get married but that he’d like to come to the reception and eat cake. 

    Throw into the mix Dan’s straight siblings, whose varied choices form a microcosm of how Americans are approaching marriage these days, and you get a rollicking family memoir that will have everyone - gay or straight, right or left, single or married - howling with laughter and rethinking their notions of marriage and all it entails.

    Commentaires

    “The strongest argument here, which [Savage] brilliantly plays down, is that family means everything to these people: married, not married, blended, gay, straight, whatever.” (Washington Post)

    Amusing, but missed Dan's voice

    A very funny, honest accounting of a little slice of Dan Savage's life. I enjoyed it a lot, but missed Dan's characteristic voice. I know he's busy these days, but I would have liked to have him read this himself.

    Entertaining, but not life changing

    I like Dan Savage, so I enjoyed the book and found it entertaining. I could see that some might find it a bit preachy. My main gripe is that Dan didn't read the book himself. The narrator did a fine job, but didn't sound anything like Dan which was just strange to listen to.

    Always a good listen

    I missed Dans voice but still enjoyed the book. As always his books are funny, smart, and incredibly entertaining.

    Good book; prefer a Savage narration

    I enjoyed the book as I have all of Dan's books, but this is the only one I heard with a different narrator. The characters (Dan's family members) come across much differently in his voice.

    Thought provoking for anyone thinking of marriage

    Whether you're gay or straight (or somewhere in between) this book is a good read for an objective look at what it means to be married from someone who isn't allowed.

    Hilarious and Thought Provoking

    I bought this audiobook back in 2012 but just now listened to it. I had no idea what to expect, and I think it actually worked out better that way. Dan Savage wrote about his partner Terry, his son DJ, his loving family, and how marriage does and doesn't work for some couples. His commentary was hilarious, and his conversations with others (mainly his family members) about marriage made great points, for both, straight and same-sex couples. The narrator, Paul Michael Garcia, made the audiobook even more enjoyable. I'm glad I got it and glad I read it. Recommended for anyone who isn't too serious, as I can see some of Dan's writing rubbing the far right the wrong way (especially DJ's opinion of George W. Bush haha)

    Fun Story but kinda of Preachy

    There's a lot of this book I love and some parts I hate. Savage does a wonderful job story telling and bringing you into the moment. But at times he writing style and opinion gets preachy. There's some point of views in this that are very dated. At times I feel he fat shames others and drags other gays through the mud that don't fit his same appearance. As a gay married father myself i found things very relatable but a times felt ostracized by savages opinions.

    Thankful that I did not pay for this horrible book. I was extremely nauseous listening to it.

    This was so entertaining, and informative

    I just loved this book. Do full of juicyness. And, as a straight person, I really learned a lot. So fun, so human.

    Update - R word is unacceptable

    The word retarded totally ruined this book for me. The story was inspiring. But needs to be updated.
