Product Description

Product Description

Welcome to the story of a real marriage.

Marriage is simultaneously the biggest blessing and the greatest challenge two people can ever take on. It is the joy of knowing there is someone to share in your joys and sorrows, and the challenge of living with someone who thinks it’s a good idea to hang a giant antelope head on your living room wall.

In The Antelope in the Living Room, New York Times best-selling author and blogger Melanie Shankle does for marriage what Sparkly Green Earrings did for motherhood—makes us laugh out loud and smile through tears as she shares the holy and the hilarity of that magical and mysterious union called marriage.

HASH(0xa0760750) out of 5 stars Best Date Night Book Ever Feb. 4 2014
By Ann in Canada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
About one of the only books I've seen my husband read in oh, the last 25 years? Since Mr. Reed's English class.

He randomly picked it up and couldn't stop reading, couldn't stop smiling, couldn't stop laughing out loud. Then reading it out loud to me. I thought my heart might split for the happiness. Melanie Shankle is one amazingly funny writer!

A book for every married couple, and the best spontaneous date night ever...

HASH(0xa07609d8) out of 5 stars Must read!!! Feb. 5 2014
By Lorrie Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is laugh out loud funny with spiritual and marital truths sprinkled in! There are a lot of books that get a lot of hype and when you read them you start to wonder what those people were thinking. This is NOT one of those books! I read Melanie's blog every morning and she is genuinely funny! You won't regret buying this!

HASH(0xa09cdb1c) out of 5 stars Hilarious and real! Feb. 4 2014
By Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh my goodness, Melanie has done it again! She has followed her wonderful Sparkly Green Earrings with The Antelope In The Living Room. What a great read about the realities of marriage! This book should probably be required reading for anyone planning a fairy tale wedding! Nothing against those weddings, but as Melanie says, that's the easy part. Melanie shares some hysterical stories of her marriage and draws some great Biblical insight from the situations she and husband Perry have found themselves in. Her voice is real and reading her work is just like talking with a good friend. She is never heavy or overbearing and is always ready to laugh at herself.

I read mostly to be entertained, encouraged or edified.The Antelope In The Living Room did all three. Highly recommend.

HASH(0xa0f15918) out of 5 stars Smart. Funny. Helpful! Feb. 8 2014
By Amy G. Case - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved Melanie's first book and knew this one would be good - but I think it may be even better - if such a thing is possible. First of all, it is absolutely hilarious, which is wonderful because I always need a good laugh. Second, her humor is just so smart which makes the book great fun to read. Her storytelling and references to pop culture are brilliant. Most importantly, though, this book helps me understand my husband and my marriage. And as we speak, I have my husband sitting on the couch reading his "assigned chapters" so that he, hopefully, will understand me better, too. Melanie hits on all of the trials of marriage with great humor and wisdom. I can't recommend this book enough.

HASH(0xa09e6414) out of 5 stars Well written and a little funny March 20 2014
By Amanda Hamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
It appears most of Melanie Shankle's readers are blog followers. For what it's worth, I had not heard of the author before I began reading The Antelope in the Living Room.

Other than excessive parentheses (which got annoying) the book was a good read. I was expecting humor and was surprised by the more serious insights. I’ve been married roughly the same length of time as the author so I didn’t really learn anything, but was able to nod along with many of her general thoughts on marriage. Her personal anecdotes were sometimes amusing, but I didn’t seem to have enough in common to fully appreciate them. If, however, you are into shopping, pop culture and/or manufactured drama, you will likely find this book hilarious.
