"…she drove her right fist three inches deep into my solar plexus, putting her entire 102 pounds behind the blow. I retreated a full foot but remained on my feet. I gasped, treasuring the oxygen remaining in my lungs, and knew that little more was likely to enter there for some time. I wondered how long a person could live without breathing. More so, I wondered how long I ...more

Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*
I enjoyed Snapshots From My Uneventful Life by David I Aboulifia. it had me chuckling and reminiscing on my own rather uneventful life.

This is a book of the author's memories, nothing so pompous as a 'memoir', but just a random collection of memories in no particular order, mainly of moments of utter stupidity on his part.

Snapshots from my Uneventful Life (to paraphrase the author's words) is thought provoking; there is great comedy and even a little wisdom. As the author points out, when we l

Oh jeez, the idiotic, embarrassing or simply bizarre things that happen to us as we wander through this path of life. This book surely had me smiling and shaking my head at the expense of David's "uneventful" life. The book is titled "Snapshots" and thats the only thing I felt like the book was missing! Whether it would've been a picture of his baseball days, his old bronx apartment or a drawing of a guy walking down the street with what looks like an orange inside his "jeans" or a sweaty man at ...more

This is the book we all write each and every day. Of our lives. Reading the events of the life of the author was a refreshing step out of the world of fiction. A series of short vignettes about events from his life held my attention much the way that television reality shows does. There is just something in knowing how others live. You know something eventful is going to happen, despite the clever title of the book and yet you can’t help but laugh and sigh and read just one more tale of the auth ...more

I got an ebook version of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review...but not specifically a kind one (I'm sorry, David. I'm sorry this is your first review on Goodreads).
This book is a collection of very short stories or musings about the author's life. It's supposed to be funny, but I only laughed about 4 times. I liked the kayaking escapade and all the stories with his wife. However, that's not a great track record for 153 pages. I really like to laugh when I read and I just d

Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this book. My the description given I was expecting a really funny book that i could totally relate to - Sadly this was not the case and I was left feeling disappointed to be honest. The book was only 150 pages long and yet i could'nt really wait to finish it and say it was read. Sorry:(
