How They Met: Fateful Encounters of Famous Lovers, Rivals, Partners, and Other Strange Bedfellows by Joey GreenNonfiction
What a fun read! This book is divided up by famous pairs without any kind of rhyme or reason to the placement--there are no sections, just fun stories. I was familiar with only a few of the stories and loved reading how famous people hooked up. Some examples include: Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz; Binney and Smith (the crayon dudes); Bill Gates and Paul Allen; Hall and Oates; etc. etc. Some of the people were unknown to me but probably because I don't watch lots of TV or live like a Kardashian. I most liked the historical pairings and most disliked the stories of famous actresses/actors and celebrities. Does anyone really care how or why Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold hooked up? No and I suspect neither do Roseanne or Tom themselves.
However, overall, I really enjoyed the book. It is fully bits of trivia so if you're into that sort of thing, you'll like it. It should be read over time, a story or two at a time so they don't all run together. It would make a great gift book for a TV or movie lover or someone who like popular culture.
