Greetings!  No Labels here.  Next, as part of my Kindle App Random Robin, I take a look at 50 is Only Nine in Dog Years by Peter Julier.

Have you ever wanted a break from read after read filled with intensity and drama? Every once in a while, I do.

I decided to do some surfing on Amazon to see if there were any comedic reads, and the title of this tickled my fancy. Would it indeed provide the comic relief I was seeking?

With anticipation, I delved in.

One of the stories that touched my heart the most was when the author talked about going on his job interview. It reminded me that the job market is still very tough out there and some of these new interviewing methods are strange to those in the older age bracket seeking jobs. Although I am not at the age of fifty yet, I agreed with the author that I do not understand some of the questioning (“If you were a pizza topping, which would you be?”) and how it applies to some of the jobs at hand (unless your job has something to do with pizzas).

The majority of the stories resonated with me because I know of someone who has experienced these things—maybe not at the level of heightened ridiculousness as written but a few, pretty darn close.

There was a laugh on practically every page.

Thumbs-down
The only drawback for me was the formatting of the Kindle edition.

Where there should have been a separate page marking a chapter divider, there was none. This makes the book read like one very long chapter as opposed to an actual book with multiple chapters.

8starsUnleashed Verdict: 8 out of 10 TRB Stars

Overall, this gets eight stars from me. I recommend this to anyone who is in to situational humor and can see the bright side of getting older.
