The audio edition of Are You There, Vodka? is hilarious because Chelsea Handler reads it. It would have been great in print, but hearing her inflection and delivery makes it even better. Basically it's like listening to hours of her best stand-up. It's dry, sardonic, wholly inappropriate comedy in the best way.
While I haven't listened to her other audiobooks, I've been to her stand-up and like that, this is good. Also she's not drunk or slurring her words- so that's a plus.
Wish Chelsea would have read her other book.
Did not have time to read it all in one day but I kept coming back it was that good.
Felt like she was trying too hard. I really like her TV show, but after this book, I won't watch it again. Want a real laugh? Get Bossypants by Tina Fey!
It was wickedly funny and very enjoyable to listen to. Audiobooks are always better when the author is the reader, but this particular one is even better because humor is always better from the writer.
The book would have been funnier w/o the "the just go with it" comment about rape
Her humor was off putting at times
This is one of those books that must be listened to rather than be read. Chelsea's voices are hysterical and her narrative is truly unique.
I had never heard of Chelsea Handler before but decided to try out the book. I like it when the books are read by the author. After finishing it, I still don't know is I like it or not. She just does not seem to be a nice person and her references to her father I found disturbing. I did listen to the whole book but still can't decide if I liked it. I am not sure I would recommend it to a friend.
I downloaded this for a 2.5 hour drive from LA to Palm Springs and back, and it made the hours fly by. Loved her stories and the way she narrated them. Laughed out loud more than a few times.
Overall, the book was ok. I didn't think Chelsea was that great at narrating it, which seems kind of odd considering they're her stories and she does standup and acting. That being said, I thought some of the stories were pretty entertaining and some made me chuckle, but rarely did I get a big laugh out of them.
