Note: I received a free eBook copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

About the book:

     In a world that is constantly changing, there is one thing that remains constant – the power of laughter. Since we can’t stop all the changes that keep happening to our bodies and our world as we live life on the north side of fifty, we can still laugh and learn from them. So if you love recalling the fun and simplicity of yesteryear, if you enjoyed other humor books about “middle age” by Martha Bolton, then you’ll love The Whole World is Changing…and I’m Too Hot to Care. You’ll laugh, you might even cry, and even though you still won’t be able to stop the world or your body from changing, after reading this light-hearted take on aging and life, the changes might not bother you as much.

My review:

     This is a humorous look at life after 50.

     The first half of the book was chock-full of humor and the problems of being over 50-years-old. At times it felt like the humor was being overdone during this portion of the book.

     Near the end of each part of the book there is an interview with someone else that is connected with comedy work in some way. Each one of them was asked the same set of questions. I enjoyed reading what each of these individuals said.

     Then the later portion of the book was focusing on sharing some practical suggestions to living life well after the age of 50. There was very little humor in this part. I feel that it would have been an easier book to read through if there had been more of a balance between the humor and the practical suggestions throughout the entire book.

     I’ve decided to give this book a 4 star rating because of the lopsided way it is arranged. It did give some great laughs and the suggestions were great so I do want to recommend it.
