About the Book:
Nearly everyone thinks their own family is “nutty” or has at least one or two nuts. With 101 stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, funny foibles, and holiday meltdowns along with more serious stories about abuse and outbursts, this book is usually hilarious and occasionally poignant. Readers will feel comforted, amused, and encouraged by these unforgettable stories about “nutty” families just like their own. This book shows readers that we all have the same family matters and what really matters is families. It is a quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift!
What I love about the Chicken Soup for the Soul books are that you can pick it up and read a few quick stories and then set it down. I bring them with me when I am waiting at appointments. I sneak in a quick read here and there!
This particular book is very entertaining! I was giggling at some of the stories of kooky family members…you know we all have them! It’s a book that cheers me up when I am in a bad mood. I just can’t help but smile. Some of the stories were a bit cheesy, but still endearing all the same. I enjoyed the quick snapshots into real people’s lives and seeing how their family operates.
My favourite sections were “Relatively Embarrassing” and “Relatively Strange”. This was a quick read and would make a great Christmas gift for book lovers or even non-readers! The stories are short so you can read a story, put the book down, and then pick it up and continue on a few months later. Check it out the next time you are in stores or purchase online from Amazon!
