I have been reading a lot lately & it has been absolutely wonderful. Reading Weirder Than Marshmallows by Dan Fogg was a breath of fresh air. It was refreshing to read something so honest and insightful. This was an easy read and quite entertaining. There were several times that I laughed out loud at topics that Dan discussed, since he tended to put opinions that I had in my head into actual words.
Weirder Than Marshmallows is divided into five categories. While reading the first three categories, I found myself making mental notes of talking topics that I would like to discuss with my friends and family. For example, well…I guess here is the thing; I don’t want to give you examples because I want you to read this. Dan has some great thoughts, observations, and discussions that you should read. I guarantee you that you will have conversation points as well from this book.
I decided to read and write my review before checking out what other people had to say about the book. Turns out we are almost always in a clear consensus: This book has great stories & has good flow, excellent writing. I recommend it.
I am honestly heartbroken to become a fan of Dan Fogg’s work knowing that he has passed. I look forward to other publications of his work, but based on his style of writing and frank honesty, I would have easily been a lifelong fan, anticipating his continuous work.
