5.0 su 5 stelle "Hi," flashing my unique version of a coy smile.'"Hi," giving me a once-over before mentally dumping me in the reject pile.' 23 agosto 2014

Detroit, Michigan born Maud Muller has had an active career in the health care industry, having received her training at Michigan State University along with a Masters in Business Administration. She now lives and writes and keeps a keen eye on the American political scene from her home in Florida. This reader's first exposure to the talent of Muller was her intense, suspenseful novel, A MONSTER'S GAME, that dealt with social issues and crime that remain front and center in today's news. This delightfully uplifting and hilarious book CONFESSIONS OF A LIBERAL LOVER is the other end of the spectrum of Muller's talent - farce and comedy blended with sex and politics that make the book, though rather short, a gentle relief from the pressures of the times. And there is nothing wrong with an escape novel about now!

This is Muller's second book and reading the first paragraph keys the reader into the fun ahead: `Once upon a time, I had a lot of trouble holding on to my lovers. I'm not talking about holding on in a literal sense; they weren't slippery and there's nothing wrong with my hands. I'm talking about holding on in an emotional sense. Ridiculous as it sounds, I used to think the reason for this was political, since I lean to the left and most of my lovers have been conservative Republicans. Reality eventually intervened, however, and I accepted the problems with my love life had less to do with politics and more to do with the lousy relationship I had with my father when I was growing up--and the fact my most trusted friend and advisor was a gargoyle.' "I" is Alice, a somewhat misfit of a girl with `chronic hostilitis', a domineering father and a sister-preferring mother and we accompany her through a childhood until she reaches the dating age: `Attracting the attention of the opposite sex became the most important thing in my life-- with the possible exception of chocolate almond ice cream and Milky Ways. Why did I care if the other girls shunned me as long as there were virile, incredibly handsome pimply-faced, hormone-crazed teenage boys lusting after me?' You get the drift of this tantalizing tale. As the author summarizes, ``Confessions of a Liberal Lover, is pure fun from cover to cover. The story of Alice, a woman who overdosed on romance novels as a teenager, is funny and sexy with a touch of fantasy in the form of a lovable wise-cracking gargoyle (in truth a monster statue won at a lucky wheel game), I'm sure most woman will identify with Alice, her childhood experiences and possibly one of her lovers.'

We follow Alice (and her gargoyle) through an attempt to support herself, a stint at the university, and ultimately into the business world, and the only constant theme is her disastrous experiences with boys to men. The way Muller writes in this book is as attuned to reality as she was her other mentioned book, but this time her gift for putting comedic situations in words places her high on the list of contemporary writers. Maud Muller spins a fine one here! Grady Harp, August 14

I really did not think that I would like this book, but I did, which to me marks a wonderful author, one who make a genre that I generally do not enjoy, one that I really , really liked.

Alice grew up reading Harlequin type romance novels and decided at a very young age that Mr Right would be a handsome and virile man, and that she was determined to find him. The problem, she finds, is that all of the people that she is attracted to tend to be conservative Republicans, as opposed to her extremely liberal viewpoints. Although she always tries her hardest to become the person that her lovers want and believe her to be, she always ends up reverting to form and realizing that she deserves better.

The book is tongue in cheek funny, with Alice's most trusted confidante a gargoyle that she rescued from a church fair when she was very young. We discover through her antics and her relationships how a woman's viewpoints on life and relationships can change through the years, and the surprising way in which Mr Right might come into her life.

Granted there is a lot of sex in this book, but it is handled very tastefully and I was not in any way offended. I appreciated the growth of the character as she begins to see herself in contrast to the lovers that she takes into her life. I absolutely loved it!

What I loved most about this book is that I can relate to it. Just like Alice, I have gone through one bad relationship after another, hoping to find that perfect man you read about in novels, such as Jane Eyre. She no longer wants to abide by her house rules, so she decides to move out. She is very independent and can handle herself just fine, but her issue is, she can't seem to keep a man.

This book has a little bit of everything; humor, romance, and SEX! It keeps you on the edge of your seat, trying to figure out what's going to happen next. Alice makes me laugh during quite a bit of it, and the time really did fly by while reading it.

This is the type of book you should read when you need to escape reality for a little while. It is a light read, and makes you feel good after you finish reading it. LOVED the ending as well! Highly recommend.

I have to admit that usually anything mentioning politics bores me to tears. However, I truly enjoyed this book aptly named, “Confessions of a Liberal Lover.”

Alice is outspoken, quite sexual, and oh, she has a gargoyle that talks to her and gives her advice. The book was easy to read and enjoyable by approaching a subject I usually find boring (politics) and throwing in a bit of fantasy and a lot of sex (something I DO enjoy reading.)

I found this to be a fast read for me and enjoyed most every minute of it. Turns out, it doesn't matter where you stand on politics, this book isn't really about that, and for that, I was thankful. The ending was sweet and I felt like it was complete.

So while I started out thinking I'd be rolling my eyes at this novel, I actually really got into it and was glad I read it.

This novel was right up my alley. Like most young women trying to find themselves, Alice breaks away from her father and goes out on her own. I can definitely relate to this story because I too wanted to live by my own rules so I left my parents house, only to find it was a little harder than I thought.
I love the fact that Alice’s relationships are so real to life, no one finds he perfect partner right away. It’s also so relatable because she goes through so many duds first. All in all this was an entertaining book; I would love a sequel or even another one along the same lines!
