    THEY DO PUZZLES AND LISTEN TO AUDIOBOOKS TOGETHER 😩💗💗

    First and foremost, I am a fan of both Nick Offerman and Megan Mullaly. I always thought they were a funny couple but they worked well together. This book just seals the fact that they are a great couple. It's a book written by them and told mostly through a transcription of them discussing certain topics about their life, apart and together. It does take a some pages to get used to but then you feel like you're part of one long intense interview.

    It's really apparent how much they love each other and that it's as if they were made for each other. It doesn't matter their age difference (over a decade) because they just work. It was a great insight to how each of them grew up, how they met, and how long it took them to get together. They do sometimes bounce around within the chapter because they get distracted (thus 4.5 stars and not 5) but it's really quite entertaining. They include pictures taken for the book as well as personal pictures from their childhood. I think my favorite was discovering their love of puzzles and them sharing pictures of puzzles they finished. They evolution of what they did in those pictures made me laugh. I enjoyed reading about their anecdotes and their history. I will say that you need to be fans of these two actors because they have a certain kind of humor that could be considered crass to a more conservative person. Then again, most people who read this book would be used to their sense of humor.

    Well done and a joy to read.

    This is my favorite celebrity couple. Not only are they funny as hell, they’re total bibliophiles.

    If you like audiobooks, I’d recommend listening vs. print (I’ve read both formats). It’s an oral history, so it’s literally #Mullally and #Offerman speaking dialogue, much of it delightful back-and-forth banter as they guide us through a brief history of their upbringings, relationships, and careers.

    Loved this silly, fun book! Review to come.

    I

    this book, and I loved listening to it, but I'm not sure if I'd enjoy reading it. It is literally an impromptu conversation between two blissfully married people, maybe with some rough guidelines of what to talk about, but it is all just off the cuff.

    I'm pretty obsessed with Megan Mullall

    I'm pretty obsessed with Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, both as people and as a couple, and this book only made me like them more. I'm, how should I put this... very, very attracted to smart people, especially people who use vocabulary correctly and read voraciously, so I found myself squealing out loud while listening to this book.

    .

    The audio was a joy to listen to, but, yeah, I didn't learn all that much about them as people that I didn't already know, but that was just fine with me. I didn't want to stop listening, which is all I could ask for in an audiobook.

    Ron Swanson and Tammy Two (as I think of them) have a really great marriage. They are devoted to each other, and they are hilariously funny. This is a fun series of conversations between them mixed in with some short essays, about their childhoods, their thoughts on marriage, how they met, how they keep it fresh. Also their dogs. And jigsaw puzzles. If you like them, you'll like this. If you don't know who they are or that they are married, prolly not the book for you. Fun photographs throughout

    I only got one galley from Book Expo, but it was a good one:

    This might be better as an audiobook. I got to see Nick and Megan do a reading of the intro at Book Expo and it was hysterical, but reading the book myself fell kind of flat.

    In 2000, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman meet on the set of a play. And the rest, as they say, is history. Their book is the story of their relationship--telling the story of how they met, from each's first impressions of one another and ranging across their courtship, wedding, work, and romance. The book covers such topics as family, past romances, religion, theater, and more.

    In 2000, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman meet on the set of a play. And the rest, as they say, is history. Their book is the story of their relationship--telling the story of how they met, from each's first impressions of one another and ranging across their courtship, wedding, work, and romance. The book covers such topics as family, past romances, religion, theater, and more.

    My library copy arrived a day after publication, so I hadn't even had a chance to read many reviews. I didn't realize that

    , so when you read the actual book, it just flips between Megan and Nick chatting back and forth. This takes a little getting used to and while I'm not a big audiobook fan (personal preference, my brain wanders too much),

    . I'm stalking our public library, waiting for them to get an audio copy for my wife. There are a few chapters that are written out, and I enjoyed those a bit more.

    So mostly, this book is just Nick and Megan talking.

    . They cover certain topics in various chapters, so

    (we learn multiple times that Nick's family is salt of the earth and Megan's was, well, not). Still, it's fascinating to learn how the two met, a bit about their various careers (not as much as I would have liked--there are no funny Will and Grace or Parks and Recs anecdotes here), and a lot about their pasts.

    The best part is that

    . I enjoyed learning more about both of them and how they spend their life together. Megan shares a fun Meryl Streep story, I loved her even more because apparently she's a hermit who loves to read (ME TOO MEGAN LET'S BE FRIENDS), and they are a couple who likes to hang out and do puzzles with their dogs. Life goals at its best.

    Overall,

    . If you're an audiobook fan--even a little bit--I bet you'd enjoy it more in that format. If you like Megan or Nick, you'll find something to enjoy in this one. If you're looking for a chronological history with lots of tidbits about their careers, this isn't that book. But if you want some insight into Megan and Nick as people, this is a worthwhile read. 3.5+ stars.

    Imma keep this one short and sweet.

    First off, if you are allergic to books of noise then you best remove this from your TBR right now because it

    works in audio format. The whole charm of listening to a couple who has been together nearly two decades is that they talk over each other and finish each other’s sentences and interject and add color to what the other is discussing.

    I will also say if you are like me and #teamronswanson

    I will also say if you are like me and #teamronswanson all the way, this might not end up being great for you either. Despite being a woman of a certain age who has been around for Will and Grace to be shoved in my face not once but

    , I have watched

    two episodes. Maybe. Maybe only one. And I can’t remember anything about it. I appreciate the Karen character and have seen plenty of clips. It’s obvious Megan Mullally is funny, but the only way I know that firsthand is from when she guest starred on Parks and Rec.

    is Mullally heavy and I didn’t find her nearly as charming as she finds herself. The fact that Offerman is so willing to let her drive the train probably is what makes him the perfect husband. However, for an Offerman fan it leaves the narrative a little lacking. I think I’ll give his solo stuff a listen and see if that works better or if I’m simply a superfan of the fictional version and not of the real human himself. I know that’s the case with the couple together so they will forever remain Ron and Tammy . . . .
