Imma keep this one short and sweet.

First off, if you are allergic to books of noise then you best remove this from your TBR right now because it only works in audio format. The whole charm of listening to a couple who has been together nearly two decades is that they talk over each other and finish each other’s sentences and interject and add color to what the other is discussing.

I will also say if you are like me and #teamronswanson

Guys, take the ebook or hardcover out of your cart and go straight to Audible to buy this baby. The Greatest Love Story Ever Told is not a book to read. You must listen to this one, trust me.

I loved this book, and I loved listening to it, but I'm not sure if I'd enjoy reading it. It is literally an impromptu conversation between two blissfully married people, maybe with some rough guidelines of what to talk about, but it is all just off the cuff.

I'm pretty obsessed with Megan Mullall

I only got one galley from Book Expo, but it was a good one:

This might be better as an audiobook. I got to see Nick and Megan do a reading of the intro at Book Expo and it was hysterical, but reading the book myself fell kind of flat.

This is my favorite celebrity couple. Not only are they funny as hell, they’re total bibliophiles.

If you like audiobooks, I’d recommend listening vs. print (I’ve read both formats). It’s an oral history, so it’s literally #Mullally and #Offerman speaking dialogue, much of it delightful back-and-forth banter as they guide us through a brief history of their upbringings, relationships, and careers. Their narration is a real treat.

Ideally, one should devour this on audio whilst piecing together t
In 2000, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman meet on the set of a play. And the rest, as they say, is history. Their book is the story of their relationship--telling the story of how they met, from each's first impressions of one another and ranging across their courtship, wedding, work, and romance. The book covers such topics as family, past romances, religion, theater, and more.

I love both Megan and Nick immensely, so I was extremely excited when I saw they had a book coming out. My library cop

Ron Swanson and Tammy Two (as I think of them) have a really great marriage. They are devoted to each other, and they are hilariously funny. This is a fun series of conversations between them mixed in with some short essays, about their childhoods, their thoughts on marriage, how they met, how they keep it fresh. Also their dogs. And jigsaw puzzles. If you like them, you'll like this. If you don't know who they are or that they are married, prolly not the book for you. Fun photographs throughout ...more

I received a digital arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
4.5 stars.
First and foremost, I am a fan of both Nick Offerman and Megan Mullaly. I always thought they were a funny couple but they worked well together. This book just seals the fact that they are a great couple. It's a book written by them and told mostly through a transcription of them discussing certain topics about their life, apart and together. It does take a some pages to get used to but then you feel like you're p

I like Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally... but not this book.

I listened the audio version, which may have made a difference, but it was like listening to a six-hour interview about not a whole lot.

I love Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman... They're hilarious and talented and I wish they were my friends. They're obviously genuine and devoted to each other... That comes through the book. I do feel like this book would best be enjoyed as an audio book... It's set up mostly as a back and forth conversation between the two. And while I did read it in Ron Swanson and Karen Walker's voice, I think listening to the two of them telling these stories would be better.

If you enjoy Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, this will be a fun listen. They are a funny couple. This is an autobiography of sorts of their relationship and marriage. As odd as they are, they are a pretty normal couple who obviously adore each other and have fun taking pictures, working puzzles, and singing. They discuss several topics from their family, dating, religion, sex, and puzzles. If you get the book version, whether a physical or e-reader version, you’ll get to see a bunch of fun pic ...more

Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman are well known for their wildly popular television roles on Will & Grace and Parks and Recreation, and also as "hashtag couple goals".  The couple has been together for 18 years (pretty unheard of in entertainment) and fans keep watch over their social media accounts which highlight their surprisingly normal lives obsessing over their dogs and doing puzzles together.

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told is an oral history, so Mullally and Offerman's witty back an

If you are a fan of both/ either of these two, this book is an absolute delight to listen to on audio. Basically just a series of conversations between the two about their relationship, careers, and families. I'm sorry I missed the photos, but the recording is great and I can't imagine reading this on print and having such a fun time with it.

This book was not really much about anything. It was a random assortment of ideas, where both authors give their perspectives. It was a delightful back and forth between two love birds, but I didn't get a sense of the love. It felt more like a good publicity stunt than a great writing attempt. It's marketed as their love story, but it didn't really hit on what makes their love the greatest. It's about how they met, how they didn't bang right away and then about their successful careers. There's ...more

I'm not usually one to follow celebrity romances, but there's something about Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman's love for each other that just makes me feel all gooey and happy. They're so cute! In Nick Offerman's memoir Paddle Your Own Canoe, he spends chapters (CHAPTERS) talking about how much he loves Megan Mullally, and it warmed my cold, dead heart enough to make me believe in love again. I loved their comedy special The Summer of 69, and I'm a fan of both Will and Grace and Parks and Rec. ...more

So I feel like this was a waste of my time. And I think the problem is that I don't actual like comedian memoirs. But for some reason I keep reading them. I appreciate that they're read by their authors, but I guess I just think they'll be way more exciting than they are. And then this book was just a conversation between Nick and Megan, which worked as an audiobook (except Megan's giggle is super annoying), but I do not think it would work as an actual book.

Also there was this weird chapter whe

The hardcover had some hilarious pictures, but I highly recommend the audiobook. It was an entertaining and informative listen that felt more like a podcast or like being a fly on the wall while these two shared their memories.

Nick and Megan are my spirit animals. Unapologetic introverts who love nothing better than to read, watch movies, and work puzzles, I just adore this duo. This collaborative project would be sickeningly cute, except they talk like sailors, hilariously talk like middle schoolers about sex and bodily functions, and have a healthy perspective on reality (versus other celebrities). Which is to say, they've handled their fame remarkably well. I really enjoyed listening to their banter and backstories ...more

HOLY COW! I literally had a smile on my face the whole time while listening to this. I don't even know these actors, but their chemistry is so genuine. I laughed out loud SO many times, the audiobook is the way to go! Nick and Megan are an absolute hoot.

What a fun read, like hanging out with these two crazy kids. I read the physical version of this book and wondered if I wouldn't have enjoyed the audio more. Until I got to the PICTURES....so totally worth it. Maybe do both.

"Nick: You’re all chill. All the time. It’s hard to get a rise out of you. And I’m like a fucking moth in a lamp.
Megan: That’s going to be the name of my autobiography: Moth in a Lamp.”

Nick and Megan are my favorite celebrity couple. They complete each other perfectly and only those two could make jokes about everything and not get offended. They are the ideal dinner date couple.

I was super excited when my friend handed me this at Book Expo this year. I wanted to go hide in a corner to read it

Awww my favourite celebrity couple! If you're interested in this, do get the audiobook, it's like a 6 hour chat between Nick and Megan (and they describe the photos for you). Some sections seemed more like it was just Megan's autobiography though and I'm not that interested in hearing about actors' career paths. Made my chuckle in places.

I feel like these two should do a podcast about relationships.

Not that I would listen to it, but reading conversations set out like this is just “meh” for me.

Plus I’m kind of in a funk about celebrity memoirs.

Just didn’t quite hit the notes I would have wanted.
