They dated for 27 years, two months, three weeks, and one day.
She was devoted, he was a pig.
She became enlightened, he remained oblivious.
She aspired to "goddes", he clung to "king".
She walked, he wooed her back.
She came back, he ran away.
She studied books, tapes, and astrological charts to understand him.
He watched sports.
She went to workshops, retreats, physics, seminars, and shrinks.
He took up golf.

....

Behind the scenes, they fell in love.
Between the strips, there remained something unsettled

Como todos os livros da Cathy que já li achei engraçado e consigo imaginar-me em algumas das situações caricatas que são descritas. São livros que de vez em quando gosto de pegar neles e ler algumas "tiras" ao acaso.
A estrutura deste foi diferente. Começa com uma das muitas ruturas entre a Cathy e o Irving, o pedido de casamento, os preparativos e o casamento em si. Depois passa por um pouco da lua-de-mel e depois, surpreendentemente volta atrás no tempo ao inicio da história dos noivos, como se

There is not too much to be said about this book, except it is wonderful if you are a fan of "Cathy." Learn how Cathy and Irving finally get to the ring, plan the wedding, and how America's favorite single girl finally says "I do' to the man she could never quite stay away from. Funny, real, and full of poignant moments, I must recommend this book to all fans of the classic comic strip!

I originally read this book a couple of years before I got engaged. I liked it and I thought it was great that Cathy got married after 27 years of being single. Then, when I finally got engaged myself, I read the book again and loved it! I could relate to so many of the things Cathy went through in planning her wedding. It really spiced up the comic strip for a few years.
