Most men would be fortunate to find one true soul mate, but for Cody Brown who is a Mormon fundamentalist he hit the jackpot and has four soul mates and is married to each and every one of them.
Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage by Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn Brown is like a race horse out the track where it starts strong but it loses momentum after making a few laps around the bend.
The book is based off The Learning Channel (TLC) hit reality show Sister Wives, and Brown wanted to utilize the show and go public with his secret being married to four women at the same time.
While we may all have our opinions on plural marriages whether it is morally correct or not, my review of the book is solely based on my opinion whether this was a good book or not. In my opinion it was not. Since I was so bored with it, I could not finish it. At 269 pages, I was only able to complete about a third of the book. It was redundant. The book could have been written half of what was printed, and it still could have been too much.
The book never went into the lifestyle of how Brown manages to please four women. He just didn’t want to go there. Sorry, Kody, if you are going to go public with your little secret, then we, the public, deserve to know how one man is able to handle four women at the same time. You can’t air your dirty laundry in public, but only choose to air which of the dirty laundry you want to air. After all, inquiring minds want to know.
The average American male's question is: How does one guy get to sleep with four different women and have the approval from each women? How does he do it without any male-enhancing drugs? The Brown family did not go there and answer any of these burning questions.
Instead, it contained too much whining from Meri. She’s the sweet one and the first wife and legal one of Kody Brown. She treated Janelle (second wife) as the evil queen. It seems the wives can’t say what they want without Kody putting his two cents in after each excerpt from the wives. Control issues? Maybe.
The hardback cover of Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage sells for about $25. If you are really interested in getting this book, wait and look for it at a local garage sale where you can purchase it for about 25 cents. Or get a copy of it at the library where it’s free. At least, that's where I got my copy from, and I wouldn't even want to pay an overdue fine on this book. Personally, I recommend not purchasing this book, or even reading it. It’s a waste of time and energy.
