Here are some choice quotes from the recently read The Actor and the Housewife, which was not my favorite novel, but had its’ moments:
Becky felt a stitch of jealousy – Melissa looked cool with torn clothing and wild hair, while Becky would have resembled a Care Bear beaten and left for dead.
Hale, Shannon. The Actor and the Housewife. New York: Bloomsbury, 2009. 30
We’ve all been there.
The lady stared. ‘Um, I’ve only been working here for a couple of weeks and I have no idea how to respond to that. Would you please pretend that I replied appropriately? Great. Here are your room keys.
Hale, Shannon. The Actor and the Housewife. New York: Bloomsbury, 2009. 273.
In general, the lines that were obviously supposed to be funny from The Actor and the Housewife weren’t, but these two made me giggle.
