Review: An Idiot in Marriage by David Jester

An Idiot in MarriageAn Idiot in Marriage by David Jester

Kieran McCall’s youth was a series of misguided attempts at love—a succession of sexual failures that always ended in disaster but somehow led to something worthwhile. As an adult, his failures looked like they were behind him. He married the love of his life and they had a child together, but chaos was never far away.

An Idiot in Marriage follows Kieran McCall as he learns to live with the strains of married life and parenthood, from dealing with incompetent babysitters and dirty diapers to neighbors from hell, stray ducks, and a best friend who still thinks with his dick.

Kieran McCall grew up, but he never matured and he never changed. He’s still a little immature, he’s still a little naïve, and he’s still massively incompetent. Kieran may be older, but he’s definitely not wiser. And if he doesn’t shape up, he may risk losing it all.

Claire's Review 3 of 5 Stars

This is the story of Kieran, as he struggles his way through marriage and parenthood. Kieran is a man who quite honestly needs to grow up.

This book is a fairly light read, well written and flows nicely, funny and entertaining in places, however from the blurb I had quite high hopes which it just didn't hit for me. My sense of humour just didn't seem to follow the same path needed to thoroughly enjoy this book.
