Do you know someone who will soon have a baby? How exciting and terrifying for them!
Are your friends parents, too? Of course they are, those poor sons of bitches . . .

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Fowler Language is for you.
And if you answered no, then congratulations, and feel free to sleep in this weekend!

My Review:

Let me start with I am not the targeted audience for this book.  I am not a parent and relish my child-free lifestyle.  When I saw this book’s cover and that it was a read now title over at Net Galley I decided to review it because who hasn’t enjoyed these illustrations when they pop up in their newsfeed on Facebook.

I have never laughed so hard while reading a book about the ups and downs of parenthood. I laughed so hard I worried about my blood pressure!  This book was so funny and I even found parts that, as a pet parent, I could relate to.  Other bits I got simply from having once been a child myself.  So no matter who you are, parent, aunt, uncle, child-free I believe you will enjoy this book.  If you know someone who is a new or experienced parent than this would make a great gift!

My Rating:5 Stars

My Review:

Saturday May 6th was Free Comic Book Day 2017.  I happen to be in a bookstore that was giving away some comics and had some on clearance.  I picked up the free Star Trek one set in The Next Generation world and this one that takes place after the last movie releases on the Kelvin timeline with the new cast setting off for life post-Enterprise.  I’m not much of a comic reader but I enjoyed this so much that I can’t wait to get my hand on the next five copies to find out what happens next.  I’m not in a big rush, however, so I might check the local stores first before I download them all from the publisher’s website.  I wouldn’t mind having physical copies of these but will settle for digital.

The story was quite good, the graphics a little less.  I’m reading it for plot so it didn’t bother me that some of the characters looked a bit off, Uhura being the lest resembling the current actor portraying the character.  Major cliffhanger at the end that sucked me in and frustrated me to no end that the comic was only 22 pages long.  So it looks like I might be a new convert to these graphic novels even if it is just the Star Trek ones.

My Rating: 5 Stars
