  1. 3.5 Stars I have enjoyed Lisa Scottoline s writing for quite some time I would have to say that I became a pretty big fan of hers when I went to an author event at my local library when she was touring for Look Again I couldn t believe how much fun I had listening to her She was funny and she threw snack cakes at the audience which is always a plus I went home that night with a huge grin on my face, a snack cake to devour later on, and a brand new tote bag that she gave me for buying several of [...]


  2. I picked this up on the strength of the title I ll give any book that makes me laugh out loud in the library a shot I should have read the flap copy, because this is almost the perfect storm of nonfiction I hate let me count the ways The author writes 1 chick lit that is 2 massively popular This 3 collection of 4 newspaper columns features several 5 guest columns written by the author s daughter The essays are 6 cute, 7 upbeat, and 8 warmly nonjudgmental They feature 9 Spanx, 10 old dogs, the 11 [...]


  3. This light, humorous book about lessons learned reminded me NOT to make snap judgements This is totally the kind of book I would pass over in bookstores and consider myself too thoughtful a person to ever consider reading Translation too much of a literary snob to want to be seen reading this kind of book.BUT, a dear friend pressed it in my hand, saying what a treat it was, so whatcha going to do I gave it a whirl and after 20 pages decided that it was just too cute and too fluffy that I just wo [...]


  4. This book is Hysterical I had forgotten how great it feels to truly laugh out loud So far the funniest chapter by far is Everything Old is Nude Again The first line reads Something dangerous is going on in the world of women s underwear, and I want to nip it in the butt Sorry I am referring of course to Spanx You will cry and probably identify gladly or dly But it is not all funny, for the tempo rises and falls like a gentle ocean, one minute you re laughing right out loud and then when you read [...]


  5. Lisa Scottoline is best known for her 15 mystery novels Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog is humor at its best The book is a compilation of articles that she did for the Philadelphia Inquirer They are short stories, 2 to 3 pages long, that gives the reader a look into her life.Lisa has been married twice and she makes no bones in telling us how bad these marriages were, she calls her husbands Thing One and Thing Two She has a daughter that is going off to college and is the apple of her eye, ev [...]


  6. Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog gives us a slice of life from the sometimes sentimental, often hilarious, definitely extraordinary life of author Lisa Scottoline Ms Scottoline is ingenious and full of life as you ll be able to tell from listening to her recount some of her weekly Chick Wit column in the Philadelphia Inquirer and additional stories on life, love, family and pets from her outlook, which can be a comical one to say the least.I m not the only one who thinks of chloroforming her o [...]


  7. 205 I really enjoyed this read and was highly entertained A collection of this and that dealing with life from the authors column she writes for the Philadelphia Inquirer Her sense of humor reminds me of the books written by Erma Bombeck Need something different and humorous to read this book is excellent.


  8. Yes, I finally finished this book and absolutely hated finishing it I just loved Lisa Scottoline s sense of humor I picked this book up due to the title I had to control myself and not laugh too load when I was in the bookstore and saw it on the shelf That would not be the only laugh that this book would give me The chapters are short and sweet This book was great to take along while waiting at the doctors office or if I just needed a good laugh Yes, it took me months and months to read but afte [...]


  9. A collection of Scottoline s newspaper column called Chick Wit I m feeling distinctly meh about this one Her style is witty and unapologetic, but the cheesy endings to the columns started become annoying after like the 5th one Did I mention there are 70 ish articles in this book It reminded me David Caruso on CSI Miami You know how he does that cheesy one liner to open the show while looking over his sunglasses like he s the coolest guy ever That Well, that was what the endings to all of these f [...]


  10. This was a humorous story of what it is like to be a twice divorced single mother of a certain age Who knew that Lisa Scottoline could be so funny Usually she writes such serious mystery crime novels I enjoyed it and gave it s.


  11. This is a collection of very short 3 pages or so pieces from Scottoline s Chick Wit column for The Philadelphia Inquirer Fun to have around and pick up when you have a few minutes to read here and there She covers everything from shopping for undies to losing her father to cancer As with any such collection, my appreciation of these little pieces was uneven The unevenness was even pronounced for me with this book because Lisa Scottoline and I have some things so strongly in common and yet in so [...]


  12. This book is a collection of columns that Lisa Scottoline, a novelist, wrote for the Philadelphia Inquirer and, as the title indicates, they are humorous, reflective, self deprecating and frankly, really heart warming They might not be everyone s cup of tea, but this rich glimpse into a thrice married writer, with one daughter, a feisty aging mother, a gay brother and loads of dogs, is delightful From braless emergency room moments, to her mother insisting on wearing a lab coat, to her daughter [...]


  13. I have read Lisa Scottoline s mysteries for years, and am always anxious for her next one to come out So, when I heard that she had published this book, which is not a novel, I was intrigued I finally got it from the library and was so excited and, I am happy to say, this book did not only not diappoint me, but exceeded my expectations.This collection of Chick Wit columns allow us a peak inside Scottoline s life I must say, I felt that I knew her family, and recognized them or parts of them from [...]


  14. This is a great book of essays about what it s like to be an ordinary woman living in the world today originally published as columns in the Philadelphia Inquirer I laughed out loud so many times I also had several moments when I thought to myself, Wait, someone else feels the same way that I do about X especially about Dead Whoppers in my movie candy, or about how the reason women interrupt each other all the time is because we re so excited about what the other person is saying, we just can t [...]


  15. I d never actually read a Lisa Scottoline book before, but then I met her and realized how delightful and funny she is This book was the perfect introduction to her, as it s a collection of personal essays previously published in the newspaper Although stylistically they got a little grating toward the end, all in all I found these funny and touching.


  16. I find grammatical errors distracting this book contained an unusually large amount of them It seems like a self published book instead of the work of an experienced author Puzzling, but not enough to read of her work Lisa needs a new editor.



  17. I give Why My Third Husband Will be a Dog about a 3.5 This is the first book I ve read of Lisa Scottoline s and I know that isn t her usual type of writing she does, I ve seen a ton of her books at Target and Barnes Nobles and I even have some on my TBR list I believe, but I just never have picked one up This book looked light and humorous and perfect as an audio book to listen to while I do things around the house This book is a collection of her articles that she had written for The Philadelph [...]


  18. For those, who have ever played the imaginary dinner party in a heartbeat I would invite Lisa S as the Guest of Honor.This collection of essays and some written by her daughter were as perfect as one could hope for There is a something for everyone Mother daughter, pets, best friends forever, family especially loved Mother Mary , and the ex husbands I spoil on if you re looking for a tell all on the husbands it isn t going to happen and this was good news The essays are fun to read and the ones [...]


  19. Lisa Scottoline has a great storytelling voice for this That s where the great part ends.Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog began as columns for the Philadelphia Inquirer and should have remained columns for a newspaper Together the stories get boring and well, not very funny I think that was the point of the book, humor, and it is not humorous in that laugh out loud, relating to the tale sort of way.It was a bit like listening to a bad joke in the midst of others and trying to pretend that you [...]


  20. I don t think hilarious should be used to describe this book, as shown in its GoodReads description I think the word humdrum would be much suiting.Frankly, I didn t find Scottoline to be a very good writer The whole time I was listening to this book, I kept thinking how she could make each chapter funny, OR how IIIIII could make each chapter funny But most of all, how Erma Bombeck could rip this book to shreds.And each chapter wasn t meant to be funny, which made this book all the annoying T [...]


  21. Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this book which was taken from her columns in a local newspaper in Philadelphia Tales mainly centering on her daughter and her menagerie, ranging from dogs to cats to chickens to, I think, ducks The attcks of the spiders when she merely opened the door had me laughing out loud A best friend is just another name for accessory after the fact Little Tony has his own seat next to mine, and his side of the car with his dog toys bottle of water with paper cup snuggly blanket [...]


  22. I was captivated by these short clever essays I may start going to the Philadelphia Inquirer on line to see if I can find them I laughed out loud a lot while I read it which made it worth every minute in a month that has had few laughs so far I love Lisa s novels, especially the ones that feature Mary, who may be Lisa with a gun I think I ll enjoy them even in the future Usually when authors step out of their familiar genre, the resulting books are less successful But, this was a blast.


  23. I am amused by the publisher s use of the word hilarious to describe this book The essays are sometimes cute, often frantic but not particularly funny as I understand the word She clearly loves her daughter but the columns about their relationship aren t all that interesting I would imagine raising a child on her own was a challenge but referring to her ex husbands as Thing One and Thing Two is just juvenile.


  24. So you know where this is going right Urgh That phrase got on my last nerve I really didn t like this book What the hell was I thinking I guess the title and the cute dog on the front said read me, I m worth it NOT I expected humor Instead it was a about a woman, her mother, brother and daughter and ex husbands that I couldn t care less about minus humor Unfortunately I brought this book you know where this is going right the trash


  25. I did not care for this book I have read some of the chapters in the newspaper column The snippets were ok for a newspaper I just did not care for this as a book just a collections I want to read something that makes me want to read and escape, enjoy This was just not for me I could not bring myself to finish this book.


  26. This was a cute and funny and fast read I like Ms Scottoline s personal writing style, and her anecdotes about her life, many of which I can relate to, are entertaining This is not a life changing, deep, or profound book, but if you are looking for something funny, light, and easy to read, this would be a good choice.


  27. It s our long lost third sister I thoroughly enjoyed this book which is a collection of the columns that Lisa Scottoline writes for the Philadelphia Inquirer I could relate to so many things that Lisa said in this book I recommend it to anyone who likes a chuckle She has a different way of looking at everyday things in life which is very entertaining I can t wait to read Think Twice.


  28. Lisa Scottoline has a tremendous sense of humor This book is a collection of her newspaper columns and range in subject matter from raising chickens to her family and visiting New York City on book tours.You will laugh You will cry It s a very fast read with each chapter just one column of about 900 words You will also learn about her than most of us want to know.


  29. Love, love this book Lisa Scottoline is brilliant, she made me relate to her story At times I truly thought that she was telling my story, I think most women would think the same And thanks to my son for introducing me to audio books the story was even better because Lisa Scottoline did the reading She was amazing this is one to definitely read
