But when Joy finds herself obligated to attend 17 weddings in six months (including those of her father, mother, younger brother, and five of her closest girlfriends), the couple is forced to take a new look at why they're so opposed to marriage when the rest of the world can't wait to walk down the aisle. As the season heats up and the pressure mounts, Joy must confront what it means, and what it costs, to be true to one's self.
A witty, wicked comedy of manners in the satirical tradition of Jane Austen and Evelyn Waugh, Wedding Season is an intelligent, laugh-out-loud funny examination of friendship, faith, integrity, and the ideas and institutions that bind us together, shape our lives, and define who we are.

Couldn't make it to the end
Although some of the prose was a bit too precious and pretentious (of the aren't we darling and clever Manhattanite variety...), it wasn't the writing that got to me. I hate to say this but it might have, it was so predictable but Cosper does have the occasional excellent redemptive turn of phrase. However, as a book about attending many weddings is likely to - the word "photographer" is repeated often. The narrator can not say it properly, pronouncing it "fertagrapher." That extra R I know should be forgivable, but repeated over and over it eventually drive me to near madness and I jumped ship three and a half hours into the book.

Not worth it
I'm not even half-way through this book. So far it's really boring and I'm not sure what the point is. The main character is anti-marriage and has to attend 17 weddings in a period of six months. Surely there must be something amusing in this...so far I haven't found it. The writing is wordy and tedious, with everything but the weddings themselves being described in horrible, mind-dulling detail.
This is the first time I will not finish a book I've bought from Audible.
