Publisher's 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.

    Melanie Shankle has absolutely great humor even while being transparent about her very human quirks and very real marriage. It has a practical side, too, regarding her courtship, relationship, faith, and marriage, but I really enjoyed it and thought it was very funny. I read a lot of parts out loud to my husband, who laughed, too. We can relate to some of the scenarios she mentions. I dont always read the endorsements, so I didnt discover them until after I finished the book. My husband and I laughed some more at the fake funny endorsements from recognizable culture and TV references. Maybe Id better get Sparkly Green Earrings now.

    What a hilarious, honest, and refreshing look at marriage! I found myself laughing out loud from the fake endorsements through the very end. Many of Shankle's stories reminded me of my own marriage. Sometimes it was funny, and sometimes it caused me to think about things in a new way. While I don't normally read memoirs about people I don't "know," I have thoroughly enjoyed both of Melanie Shankle's books. I love her sense of humor and hope you will find something to laugh over while you read this delightful book!

    Humorous story about marriage and what it takes to make it work. In the beginning of the story I thought to myself that this person really hates being married but as the book progressed it turns out she just has some bad luck and bad situations that make the book intriguing. Would recommend to anyone who thinks their relationship is rough or to those needing a nice release from the tension. We all have bad things happen we just have to get through them and then realize that things aren't as bad as they seem and may even be humorous.

    Melanie Shankle had me literally laughing out loud with this book. At night while reading in bed, I would keep my husband up with my constant giggling and chuckling. She uses her dead pan sense of humor to accurately and very realistically describe what it is like to be married for over a decade.

    At times, I would read portions to my husband that really made me laugh and he would find them funny as well. It was a wonderful follow-up to her first book, Sparkly Green Earrings. It was funny and yet inspiring at the same time. A great read that I would read again and again. Highly recommend any wife/wife to be should read.
