How to Talk to a Widower, Johathan Tropper

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It was engaging and witty, poignant and touching. The points about grief and the fear of moving on resonated true. The characters were very true to life; the family dynamic was also true to life and incredibly funny. Before you read it, you may not see how you'd laugh out loud about a slacker who fell hopelessly for a vibrant, talented, beautiful older woman who dies and leaves him and her teenage son adrift, but you will laugh, I promise. This book has a little bit of everything, and really I loved it.


  1. I thought I was a fast reader but you must read in your sleep. Thanks for all your suggestions. I love book blogs and yours is especially good.

  2. This was a great book although I did not like how they left the last relationship. I know to write it out into the "happy ending" would have been too predictable, but still, I was looking for the happy ending anyway. Thanks for the recommendation; it wasn't a book I would have discovered on my own. :)
