This is a must read for every woman out there. I think it would help many a girl to relax and not take them selves so seriously.
Caitlin lays it on the line just how crazy the world has become and what we woman do to try and fit in as normal.
I have already listened to this book twice since I got it in January and I am sure will pull it out every couple of years to listen again to help remind me that I don't have to fit into what the world calls norm to be a women. I am a woman 100% no matter how little or how much effort I put into my appearance and if others don't like it then who cares.

WARNING: this story is full of sophomoric humor. it is over the top in a good way. it is not for the faint of heart or easily offended! if you are politically correct, you will not like this book!
with that out of the way, i must admit i laughed my @$$ off many times while listening to this story.
i guess i'll start my review with some of the crazy and memorable characters. the main character is charlie. charlie is a balding, overweight 30-something loser who's best days are behind him. his roommate, trent, is a racist and homophobic cop who shakes down homeless people for extra coke money. big rob is a loveable but dumb as rocks meat head. gay mike, who says he's not gay but is always making gay references. left nut is a shameless horndog. vidu is a heavily accented sri-lankan who always strikes out with the ladies. blake is an uppity investment broker. russ is blake's redneck uncle who unabashedly sports a serious mullet. and jim who is charlie's best friend and the only seemingly normal person in the group.
as the story opens, this group of friends is getting ready for blake's bachelor party. after a wild night of partying, charlie, jim, left nut, and vidu head stumble their way to the finish line of the Chicago marathon to cheer on vidu's girlfriend. shortly after they arrive, their hangovers only get worse as crazy people start tackling and eating the marathoners. so starts their battle to survive as chicago and the rest of the world goes to hell.
all joking aside, there is a good zombie survival story along side all the slapstick! believe it or not, there are a couple of heartwarming and heart wrenching moments amidst the craziness.the narration is great. the narrator captures the humor on the pages of the book and delivers it with perfect tone and timing!
if you're not easily offended and are looking for a laugh, download this book and press play! if you've got kids, put on the headphones or wait until they go to sleep.
the other reviewers are right! this one's a winner all around!
