Review: This was a love story that tackled many topics other than a love story. Megan and Nick talk about how they met, fell in love, and continue to stay in love, but they also talk about things like achieving fame, past relationships, and their childhoods. I listened to this book in audiobook format, and I don’t know how this story could have been read in print format. There is a lot of banter between the couple and I am curious as to how this was accurately captured. At some point I may check out the hardcover and flip through it just to assuage this curiosity. I also want to see the photos that were described in some detail by the authors that are apparently included in the book.
There isn’t a lot of depth to this book, so if you are looking for something pleasant to have playing in the background while accomplishing other tasks, this is a good option. I had some familiarity with these two actors, but I really did not know much about them prior to listening to their story. A lot of what they include is mundane and boring, if I’m being perfectly honest, but it’s refreshing to hear from a famous couple that is still very much in love after 18 years together. Nick’s worship of his wife was over the top in some chapters…we get it, Megan Mullally is great…however I found these were good times for my attention to drift off without feeling like I needed to rewind and re-listen. I never felt like I missed much when I tuned back in, which is nice when you have a toddler screaming commands at you from the backseat of your car.
