My Planet: Finding Humor in the Oddest Places by Mary Roach


Mary Roach, New York Times bestselling author and wildly renown journalist.

In April, Mary will be releasing My Planet: Finding Humor in the Oddest Places (Reader's Digest; April 2013), a hilarious collection of her essays that weave through personal anecdotes and everyday musings checkered with her uncanny wit and amazingly analytical eye. 

Whether you read through from cover to cover or pick and choose essays to enjoy- you will find humor in the most unlikely places - as well as the mundane moments of life. Roach finds life lessons, a slice or sarcasm, and something special about the ordinary, making each essay comical and absolutely priceless. 

The 411 by Maria:

I truly loved this book. It was a super quick read full of essay that mostly centered around Mary and her Husband Ed. 

To be honest I have never heard of Mary prior to this book which came to me for review. This is one of the reasons I love being a book reviewer. There are so many books that would have never been on my radar and would have never been read, fall right into my lap.

Mary and her husband are hysterically funny, way funnier than my husband and I. Their banter back and forth add to Mary's witty look at life which is just so not fair. 

Each chapter is only about a page or two and a half filled with humor that you will enjoy even if you are not married to an equally witty man.

 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary book for my honest opinion.
