Review of Is Monogamy Dead by Rosie Wilby

Review of Is Monogamy Dead? By Rosie Wilby

I loved this book far more than I expected to. When I saw the number of chapters I cringed inside, thinking that I was really screwed if this book sucked and I had to slog through that many pages. To my absolute delight, instead I found myself flying through the witty pages and short, pithy chapters thinking “OK, just one more. Well, one more after this one, I guess. Ok, now I really mean this is the last one for sure.”

In Is Monogamy Dead Wilby skillfully blends information from experts and her own research with achingly honest and refreshingly amusing personal experiences and insights. Smart, funny, and thought provoking, I simply loved Is Monogamy Dead. In fact, I detest reading from a screen in general and this book was so good that I was willing to read it on my laptop. As a technophobe who already spends too much time on the computer, that is quite a statement for me to be willing to read for pleasure on a device instead of a paper book. This delightful book was worth it!  You can find it here. https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1786154536
