Life’s a wedding for Bobby Bo, who’s traveled to nearly 100, from Tenerife to Singapore and Chile to Iceland. He’s been best man, groomsman, “father” of the bride, and bridesmaid—but always the single guy, whether with a girlfriend, flying solo, breaking up, meeting a new flame, or witnessing an ex take her vows.

A colorful cast of diverse personalities from all rungs of t

Shelves: did-not-finish
I really wanted to like this book because the author provided it to me for free and was very nice about it, but I just found it painfully boring. It was trying to be a sort of sociological look into weddings in different cultures, but it didn't really provide any insight into those cultures, it just showed you dull conversations that happened to occur at those weddings. It was also trying to tell some interesting wedding related stories, and it failed at doing that too. I also got really annoyed ...more

Title: Wedding Chronicles

Author: Bob N. Boguslavski

Genre: f(r)iction--"where fact and fiction rub up against each other, and nobody wants to know it regardless"

Review:

I was torn between rating Wedding Chronicles a 3 star or 4 star review. Some parts of the book I really enjoyed, and other parts, not so much. In the end, I settled on 3.5 (rounded up to 4 stars when rated on other sites.)

Wedding Chronicles is certainly one of the more eclectic books I've e

'This a work of f(r)iction, where fact and fiction rub up against each other, and nobody wants to know it regardless.'

From the moment the cover for this book is studied and the credits are listed (Bob N. Boguslavski, author, George-Thérèse Dickenson, editor, Toten Creative, Translator, and Anouk Jansen and Cathy Angus-Healey, illustrators) the idea that this is full frontal farce is fairly obvious. Trying to piece together some sort of biographical data on the author Bob N. Boguslavski points ou

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 of 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

I won this book through a giveaway here on GoodReads.

I really wanted to like this book, not only because it seemed interesting, but also because the author spent so much time and efforts to trace it, since it seemed lost, and I really wanted to reward him with a good review.
Unfortunately, I cannot do so. I really tried to enjoy it, but I was not able to understand his purpose in all this. The characters were boring and, honestly, sometimes I even felt disgusted by them. Even though he travelled

Bobby is a character that has the feeling of being well known to the author. He seems a bit jaded on the surface but the reader knows that deep down beats the heart of an optimist and one who believes in love. Usually a first novel will be weak as the author is getting to know his or her character and really over sharing with the audience in the process. Boguslavksi presents Bobby as someone he’s known all his life and so have we. We were there for his first go as a best man. We are by his side ...more

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 in weddings around the world. Some strong characters emerge putting you on the edge of your seat as the book, like a good

This is a really funny book; I loved the character Bobby Bo and his escapades through the world of weddings. Most of us have been to more than one wedding and can see where the humour comes from; there is something in here for everyone to tune in to. I enjoyed the thoughts of Bobby Bo and felt that the book just flowed along. There is a good sense of time and place through various destinations and settings. It is a lovely writing style with good characterisations; there are loads of different pe ...more

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 definitely give you food for thought.
The continuous alliterations are razorsharp and after reading the book, I guess everybody wants to h

Recommends it for: anyone looking for a light hearted read
Recommended to Swarleen by: won book
I did win Wedding Chronicles from the author, therefore i read it for free, however i do think the book is well written, like it is quite interesting and as a reader i did quite feel like i was apart of Bobby's journey. But i did feel like despite the whit and humor of the character some parts of the book were dragged out unnecessary making the book seem longer. This was different read from a lot of the other books i read and i enjoyed the change. I would definitely recommend wedding chronicles ...more

This is absolutely hilarious, and a very different book from any other. You won’t stop laughing out loud and being surprised by the intelligent and fresh humour throughout. If you’re looking for comedic escape delivered with insight into relationships, cultures, and political issues against a global wedding backdrop, this read is a must.

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!
