    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

Jill's greatest hits:
  • Girl Walks into a Bar...: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle

    "I laughed, I cried..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about Girl Walks into a Bar...?

    Just all of Rachel's awkward moments, from being offered nothing but lesbian roles, to accidentally ending up on a date with a gay guy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Girl Walks into a Bar...?

    The email from her baby's uncle-to-be. I was crying on the subway.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I was pretty amused by all the metaphysical stuff. For example, when she went to see a channeler who becomes Kendra, the vaguely Indian-sounding spirit guide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was very engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to admit, I was initially more interested in the show biz/SNL part, which is really only the first, say, 15% of the book. But it was so entertaining and such a sweet story that I got sucked into the rest of it.

  • Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live

    "Surprisingly Boring"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you try another book from Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller and/or Christopher Burns and Eric Conger ?

    I would probably stay away from these authors. The narration was ok.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller again?

    Probably not.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was weird. There were like 6 different narrators, alternating the quotes by the actors and writers. It was weird to have someone else do the voice of an actor you know, but fine. At times, I felt the narration was over-acted, but I got used to it.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Live from New York?

    The book is basically just a series of quotes that tell the story. That's fine, but I think it could have moved faster if they summarized more and used fewer quotes. The early years were especially boring to me, but maybe that's because I don't remember them.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of SNL and I'm glad I know more about the history of the show now. It was just a little tedious at times.

  • Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)

    "Should Have Hired a Voice Actor"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What would have made Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) better?

    I have read Ms. Lawson's blog and I enjoy a lot of it. But these random stories are not interesting enough to keep me engaged for an entire book. I'll admit: I stopped listening midway.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jenny Lawson again?

    No. Again, I like her blog but her voice and accent are irritating.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It would have been 100% better if she did not weird sing/chant the chapter titles. I think that alone was enough to bias me against her entire performance. Seriously, her singing is the most irritating sound I've ever heard.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Parts of it are funny. Her dad bringing home a dead squirrel puppet? Hilarious and explains so much about who she is. But parts of it are just boring.


  • Seriously...I'm Kidding

    "Love Ellen, but this was a bit boring"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Considering I was just commuting anyway, sure. It kept me company. If it were to take me away from anything productive, I would say not.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the tiny insights I got into Ellen's home life with Portia. The least interesting aspect were the completely random tangents.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Could you see Seriously...I'm Kidding being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Well let's just stick to Ellen's talk show.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I just don't get

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adam’s, much better.

    "Pani hed hun, og det betød lillesøster. Hun havde de bruneste øjne og det sorteste hår, man kunne tænke sig, og hun lo mere end hun græd." Pani er en helt almindelig pige fra Grønland. Eller næsten helt almindelig. Det er jo ikke alle piger, heller ikke på Grønland, der får en isbjørneunge i fødselsdagsgave. Pani kalder isbjørnen Nanok, og da den vokser op og bliver meget stor, er det kun Pani, der kan passe den.

    Videre Mod Nord er tredje del af fortællingen om drengen Leiv, der kommer til Grønland fra Island, hvor hans far blev dræbt af Thorstein fra Stockanæs. Det er ikke blot en historie om mødet mellem to kulturer, men også en beretning om det barske og hårde liv for at overleve i polarnattens kulde, og hvordan Leiv finder sammen med Narua og Apuluk og oplever mange dramatiske ting, før han bliver accepteret som Inuit af eskimoerne.

    Jørn Riels 10 skrønesamlinger fra Nordøstgrønland – og en enkelt fra Sydøstgrønland – har vundet ham mange trofaste læsere. Og med god grund.
