Between the Lines Blog Tour: Kill Me Now
Welcome to the Between the Lines Blog Tour for KILL ME NOW by Lawrence Fisher. I had the pleasure of reading Mr. Fisher's book and I'm going to review it right here on this blog! Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to WIN a FREE book.
Kill Me Now! is about Lawrence, a man in his late 40s dodging bullets deep in the dating battlefield while searching for the ONE. In Kill Me Now! Lawrence tries to decode the signals of his enigmatic opponent, often resulting in his hasty retreat. Why is she resting her head on her hand? Is she bored? Or is she interested? He finds himself in many humorous situations where he has no idea what he is doing and no idea how to maneuver through the skirmish. Trapped in the epicenter of the courting conflict, the motivating thought that sustains him is his strong belief that somewhere out there, she awaits.
Join Lawrence as he painfully stumbles through the mating minefield in search for his SOULMATE while silently wishing that he was elsewhere. Be warned, you will laugh!
My Review: Kill Me Now is a humorous account of Lawrence Fisher's true-life dating experiences. The book is part memoir, part dating advice. Though the book is riddled with humor and hilarious moments, there's also a very human emotional side to this as the author talks about his own shyness and hang-ups in regards to the opposite sex and dating. There are a couple of creepy stories--not everyone in the dating world is nice (or sane), as the author recounts stories of some less-than-savory dating experiences. The dating minefield might have a few overly-possessive psychos or materialistic gold-diggers, but for the most part, the dating world is comprised of nice, everyday people who are looking for The One.
While Kill Me Now isn't really geared toward me (old, married person with kids) and wasn't something I could relate to, I could still appreciate the author's struggle. I would recommend this book to anyone in the dating world who is looking for a little perspective and a lot of humor. I would also recommend this to anyone looking for light comedic reading.
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
