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 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.

    Humorous style that gets tiresome

    For the first few chapters, I was delighted with this book. I enjoyed Melanie Shankle's light-hearted style and her self-deprecating humor, and I smiled as I read. (I didn't laugh, but that's me, not the book -- there really isn't a lot that makes me laugh.) I looked forward to enjoying the whole book.

    Then, to my surprise, I found myself increasingly reluctant to pick it up, when I had other books to read, other activities to enjoy. It wasn't that I didn't like the book, or the things she wrote about. I can't even point to any chapter and say, that one I didn't like. I think I just got tired of that style and that type of humor. It's good in small doses, but not a whole book. (I feel the same way about reading books by Erma Bombeck.)

    I was excited to read The Antelope in the Living Room because I really enjoyed Melanie Shankles first book. The author uses humor to let her readers know what real marriage is like and she doesnt sugar coat all the struggles and pressures associated with it. It is a relief to read something that is honest because so many books out there only relate the good things of marriage and the hardships are so often glossed over. Though this book will have you crying from laughter, the author does have a lot of serious information that is good to know for anyone who is planning to get married soon or hoping to one day. I also like how the author uses Scripture to make her point and she does it in a way that really makes you think. For

    anyone who is planning a wedding, this is a must read because it will open your eyes to what you are getting yourself into.

    This was a very funny and entertaining book! Melanie Shankle talks about when her and her husband were first married and some of the funny adventures she went through. There were stories that I could definitely relate to even though I've been married a few more years than her. This was a very easy book to read and Melanie Shankle is a very talented writer. I would recommend this to everyone!

    I read Mealnie Shankle's other book and when I found out she published this book, I knew it was a must read. I really enjoyed her book on marriage because she takes important issues in marriage and discusses them in a humorous manner. There was several times that I laughed out loud (causing my husband to give me funny looks) and there were also lesson in their that I can apply to my own marriage. The book was a quick read (read it in an evening) and I would strongly recommend picking it up for an enjoyable evening read.
