Very funny and smart

Very funny to read, amazing speed of story telling and an interesting combination of funny anecdotes, some serious messages, good descriptions of the moments in time the book describes (and makes you think). I felt like being on a passage in time of my own life, but not just... Definitely recommendable to read!

A fun-packed race around the world of weddings

With this book, Bob has defined a new way of writing: witty, funny, (geo)politically involved and without needing the boring details of a plot. You can read it in a few goes or, like I did, in little chunks. The conversations are funny, the style is, at times, mind boggling. The background thoughts about marriage and the world all together are entertaining and definitively give you food for thought.

The continuous alliterations are razorsharp and after reading the book, I guess everybody wants to have a "beer, booze and some banter with Bobby Bo and Dr LoveSexy!"

Looking forward to the second part of the trilogy.

Exposé into a band of professional wedding attendees that makes a fascinating read

This is a fascinating look at a person's life who loves attending weddings, really fancy weddings. It is very well written. I found myself so absorbed by this book, I finished it in less than 24 hours. The book describes how a group of individuals who met in Spain at business school got together at weddings around the world.

Some strong characters emerge putting you on the edge of your seat as the book, like a good crime or suspense novel, transitions from one interesting cultural situation to another. At the same time you gain stunning insight into different places, different ways of thinking and some world events that were happening at the time. It is also quite funny in parts. I keep wondering what would cause someone to spend so much effort and expense to attend so many weddings. I guess the weddings were really fun!

CIA meets Peter Pan

Bob is an engineer cum storywriter. The result is Wedding Chronicles, a really different, inspiring and fun read. Basically this book is about a sequence of very diverse weddings all over the world. You get to know the highlights of each ceremony (which is not necessarily the wedding dress) and become witness to conversations related to the region or to important events at the time of each wedding.

Lots of witty wording (not by "coink-e-dink"), naming and conversations like the one where a friend (himself married three times already) talks about the greatness of marriage and asks Bob when he finally thinks to get settled ... this book makes you laugh!

Bob's initial and final musings about weddings give the reader the chance to reflect on his own experiences, while Peter Pan ignores that his time for decision making won't last forever. But hey, if you work for the CIA - as most of his friends apparently believe - your priorities must be set somewhere. Or maybe the sheer number of weddings equals a decent vaccination against marriage.

This is also a book about a friend of his friends, where Bob is the big gatherer of his friends' weddings, while forgetting about hunting down his own.

It is hard to believe - as the author claims - that there were no notes taken for all the detailed descriptions. In any case Bob mastered a serious issue of data gathering.

The format makes it possible to put the book aside ... you don't lose track if you leave time between reading the chapters. And if you want to completely immerse, with each chapter Bob has created a fine set of music playlists, which will put you in the right mood while reading. Extraordinary.

Brilliant

What an interesting, unique and hilarious read. One of its hidden strengths is true artistry with description and dialogue. The characters are memorable, and it rolls along like a freight train with never a dull moment. The base premise of weddings through the eyes of a man make it a must read.

Excellent, funny and innovative

A fast-paced, engaging piece of work, perfectly described, with fabulous characters and stunning humour. There is some really great and off-the-wall writing here, and the pitch doesn't do it justice. Part global travelogue, part commentary on marriage and relationships, and much more, this novel is hard to pigeonhole. The music angle adds yet another dimension to the overall experience.

Smart, funny, and full of surprises. WC is like listening to great jazz music or to Bach, there's something new to discover with every read! And the book even has its own playlists - awesome!

Smart and funny must-read

From the geopolitical to gastronomic, from the playful to the poignantly personal, WC is full of fun wordplay, witty dialogue, and lively characters. The book provides a playlist of music for each wedding episode which adds another dimension to the whole reading experience. The book may even become addictive as you try to hunt down all the different references and allusions (whether historical, literary, comic...)! A definite must-read.
