Where’s my happy ending? // Anna Whitehouse & Matt Farquharson
Where is ‘happily ever after’? And what do you do once you get there?
Maybe you’ve just had a first date with ‘the one’, maybe you’ve been married for ten years. Either way, it’s hard to know if they’re really meant to be by your side until you both wear dentures. In Where’s My Happy Ending? Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson, set out to discover what it takes to make it to forever, by asking our greatest questions about love.
They ask a former sex-worker and her ex-gigolo husband, celibate monks and free-loving hippies. They ask people who never wanted kids and people who have loads of them. They ask porn-makers and feminist academics, neurologists, psychologists and romance novelists. They ask a whelk fisherman and a lollipop lady. They speak to couples, throuples and singles; gay, straight and anywhere in-between.
And in asking these questions, they are forced to confront their own relationship after a decade of marriage. Through tears, laughter, and one improperly discarded toenail clipping, Where’s My Happy Ending? gets answers for anyone who’s ever wondered ‘what’s next?’ Join Anna and Matt on a searingly honest, belly-laugh inducing journey through love and relationships, social media and small children, expert advice and everyday exasperation, as they navigate the muddy waters of modern romance.
My only ‘real’, tangible turning pages, book that I’ve read recently and it really didn’t disappoint. This book resonated with me SO much.
Some of those things you think to yourself, in your head, and would never admit are all poured out from Anna and Matt in this honest and open book – and it’s so refreshing to read. It’s made me see my marriage in a whole new light! I rated this one 5 stars.
