Synopsis

Is Monogamy Dead? Rethinking relationships in the 21st century by Rosie Wilby

In early 2013, comedian Rosie Wilby found herself at a crossroads with everything she'd ever believed about romantic relationships. When people asked, 'who's the love of your life?' there was no simple answer. Did they mean her former flatmate who she'd experienced the most ecstatic, heady, yet ultimately doomed, fling with? Or did they mean the deep, lasting companionate partnerships that gave her a sense of belonging and family? Surely, most human beings need both. Mixing humour, heartache and science, Is Monogamy Dead? details Rosie's very personal quest to find out why Western society is clinging to a concept that doesn't work that well for some of us and is laden with ambiguous assumptions.

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
