This review is from: The Adventures of a Love Investigator, 527 Naked Men and One Woman (Kindle Edition)The Adventures of a Love Investigator, 527 Naked Men and One Woman by Barbara Silkstone
I came away from reading these 'adventures' vaguely disquieted. 527 men and only one of whom would I consider as not`damaged goods'. Though the lyrics might vary, the tune was distressingly similar, all boiling down to a set of keywords: fear of commitment, fear of failure, self-absorbed, juvenile, sophomoric, downright mean and petty. That is a litany of failure in relationships that boggles the mind. How the author managed to stay the course through 527 of these interviews attests to her strength of character ... and a wonderful sense of humor that got her through these uncomfortable glimpses at the inner workings of the male mind. She combines her interviews - and the stark realities from these unfiltered truths - with her own experiences, observations of the relationship condition, and a glimpse of the quest to find the one who might have gotten away. I came away filled with admiration for this woman who, against the odds, avoided swallowing the bitter pill, though one wonders what the long-term effects on her psyche might be from such a soul-stripping walk on the relationship path. Well, done, Barbara.
