The Greatest Love Story Ever Told is an open account of two lovebirds and how they came to be. The story is designed differently than most memoirs or autobiographies. The book is written as a conversation between Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman discussing the start of their acting careers, how they met, and their marriage.

The two come from different families and interests. Megan enjoys books, while Nick like hammers (don’t ask). Their common values of respect, decency, and the ability to mention genitalia keeps their marriage fun and upbeat. Something that couples everywhere strive for.

“I had dutifully scanned the entire circle of the cast to see who I was going to have my fling with because of course, that’s what you do the first day of rehearsal if you’re single. I’m sorry to say that my lord and master Nick Offerman did not make the first cut. He did not register on the fling-o-meter.”

It was love at first sight when they finally met in 2000 while acting in The Berlin Circle. Since they have appeared in other films and television shows like Park and Recreation. If you haven’t seen the show, you definitely should!

Throughout the years, they have both gone through various obstacles in both their personal and public life. In the book, they explain their thoughts about being in the spotlight. 18 years later the two are still together and it’s no wonder why!


My Thoughts

Is the winter blues getting you down? Well, head on over to Audible and either use a credit or purchase The Greatest Love Story Ever Told. Yes, Audible and I’ll tell you why.

Oh. My. God.

I was in tears laughing! After my attempt to find a funny book last year, I have been hesitant to read another humorous book. This one had a lot of hype surrounding it and after talking to a few accounts on Instagram who recommended it, I added it to this year’s list.

The hardcover copy reads like a screenplay so that’s why I recommend getting the audiobook version. The two of them read it versus a voice actor. One downside about the audiobook is that the hardcover copy includes photos of the two, which I would have loved to have seen. Rather than skipping over that in the audiobook, the two describe the images. I loved that they did that because they poked fun of themselves and each other which I feel like more people need to do these days. You can tell that they look at the mirror and love what they see.

Seriously, pick up this book, see what true love is like, and enjoy a good laugh.
