Haven't read a book since '97 or owned a TV since '93, adhering to the "keep the crack away from a crack addict" philosophy re both.

Wedding Chronicles

Bob N. Boguslavski

Bobby Bo attends weddings—big, small, near, far, formal, casual. No wedding crasher, his global exploits and encounters intertwine world events with a music playlist.



Life’s a wedding for Bobby Bo, having traveled to nearly 100, from Tenerife to Singapore, Chile to Iceland. He’s been best man, groomsman, “father” of the bride, and bridesmaid—but always the single guy, whether with a girlfriend, flying solo, breaking up, meeting a new flame, or witnessing an ex take her vows.

An interracial cast of personalities from all rungs on the socioeconomic ladder entangles him in a kaleidoscope of conversations and adventures that unveil the wounds and wonders of the places, cultures, and religions encountered. Quirky, elegant, and quickly moving dialogue roams from agribusiness to colonialism, war to world trade, yielding insightful views to the state of world affairs. Punctuated with the odd sexcapade, each chapter features a music playlist that sets the mood and may provide clues as to what’s really going on.

Fueled by his and others’ experiences, Bobby Bo humorously offers the odd wedding “how-to” while receiving advice on marriage and relationships, and all the while pressured to join “the club.” This first in a trilogy is a rollercoaster romp through 13 weddings, spanning two decades.

Will it ever end? He seems in no rush to be a groom yet.

Quirky and different, but I liked it overall, and especially the British setting and humour. Well put together overall, and it flowed along nicely for me, but I can also see how it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. Good luck with your climb to the desk, and you have my supprt and backing.

Very well written and put together. Quality work wihtout a doubt and an engaging story from the start. You should do well with it. Keep at it. I see a few people have pointed out the thing here and there that do with correctiong or improving, but that is easily cleaned up later, or with an editor. view book

Reading a work like this, one just knows the author has lived it. To the point, honest, and a good sobering read. One needs to be in the right frame of mind for this, but it is well put together overall. I see some have some points here and there about style and wording. They are valid points, but t... view book
