Coffee Dates From Hell Book Review

Updated on March 15, 2018

Coffee Dates From Hell

Coffee Dates From Hell is another hilarious book in Kindle format written by Jim Tilberry. I had the privilege to review his first book in paperback form called Revenge of the Vegetarian. His same sense of humor is carried on in this Kindle edition eBook.

Tilberry does explain in the beginning that there are good relationships that have been formed by meeting a person for the first time at a coffee shop. He continues on that this book is about those dates that are all wrong and turn out to be dates from hell.

We start out with people of past history, which I am pretty sure that there were no coffee shops back in some of those eras as there is today. Here is an example: Abraham Lincoln meeting Mary Todd for the first time back in 1839 for coffee, sitting there awkward and nearly messing up the date with a bad first impression to where it could very well have been their last meeting.

Couple other strange connections that are a mixture of people from the past and modern day coffee dates are:

Krystal Martin meets King Henry VIII

Jimmy Durante meets Frida Kahlo

Then there is the date from hell with Harold Thompsom meets Susie Logan. Harold finds Susie interesting. He has a lot in common with her. Perhaps more then he realizes. After the date is over, Harold is debating on seeing Susie again. But there are some things that have disturb him about Susie. Like Susie's husky laugh and hairy knuckles.

When reading this book about bad dates, we cannot forget about bad coffee shops. Jim Tilberry describes some coffee shops that had closed down shortly after they had opened up and for some good reasons.

We can all use a good laugh. If you are single or no longer looking, this dating humor book will put you in a good mood. You will be glad that you have it to read.

      Tremendous work here. Voted up and all of the choices.

      Loved the flow of the thought process. Actually, this would make a good screenplay or script for local theater.

      I loved it.

      This sounds like a fun book to read. I remember going on a date with a guy who was in his late 20's. When I found out he had already been divorced THREE times, I couldn't get away from him fast enough! LOL

      I am sure I must have had a date from hell but it has been so long ago that I can't remember. I do remember one date that ended up at a restaurant where the other two men I was dating were having dinner together and we joined them. That's right. I was sitting at the table with 3 men and was dating each of them. Oh well. They sure gave me a hard time that night. I just might have to take you up on your recommendation of this book. I can always use a good laugh.

      @Brite-Ideas: Easy to forget about these when you are married.

      sounds like a good book! I've had two such dates in my life - but I've been married forever and had forgotten about them (sort of, lol)

      Oh dear, too much water under the bridge from that time of dating. But I do know that there were several that were "one daters," and never again. Some of those had to do with "roman hands and russian fingers" if you get my drift. Some had to do with attitude toward the world, and some were just plain dumb! Sorry but that's the only term I can use. This sounds like a fun book and so easy to read on Kindle or the computer download. Thanks for sharing.
