Book Review of “Clash of the Couples” by Crystal Ponti (Editor), Julia Arnold (Contributor), Lisa R. Petty, Kevin Zelenka (Contributor)


Coupledom. Fact or fable, Adam and Eve birthed the perpetual relationship drama as seen on TV today. Despite the serpents, this couple HAD IT MADE. Luxury real estate, lush gardens, and privacy out the yin-yang. Life was glorious until the bare-bottomed babe could no longer resist temptation. Despite her better half’s warnings and threats to sleep in a tree, she tasted the forbidden fruit. One bite of that seductive, juicy contraband and the stage was set for eternity— a nibble that has blossomed into an endless supply of tiny tidbits that divide lovers to this day!

Taking a cue from the original naked explorers of authentic sin, Clash of the Couples is a new anthology featuring a collection of completely absurd lovers’ squabbles and relationship spats. Think couples fight over kids, sex, and money? Think again! Furniture, the last beer, and where to store the placenta are what genuinely ignite our feuds. And no argument is off limits. This book has it all!

Inside you’ll find a gut-busting compilation of stories such as: “I Can’t Believe You Ate My Sandwich,” “Never Assume Anything,” “Only I Can Talk About Me,” and “You Want Some College Boobs?” from forty-six fearless writers. Prepare to laugh, roll your eyes, and shiver in suspense. While Eve may have had the first bite, we ate the whole tree. And made pies.

My Review:
The book is a classic relationship guide book. Various writers, both men and women, have given different examples of how fights happen in relationships, giving their own life incidents as examples. Some are outright hilarious, some are informative, but all are incidents which actually happen in most of our lives. There are many stories in there which I felt are true stories from my own life.

Along with incidents, there are also lessons which the writers share that they have learnt over the years. The lessons are on how to maintain a successful relationship between spouses and how to avoid minor tiffs. Truly said in the book is that most of the Clashes between Couples are over minor issues and never over major ones. If those minor issues can be passed without reaction, most of the arguments will not happen. But we being humans, that comes but very rarely and therefore… we come up and read “Clash of the Couples”. Totally get a copy of it and read. You will laugh but also learn in the process.
