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.
I love Chelsea Handler, and thought that this book was going to be hilarious. I was very disappointed. The stories weren't funny in the slightest, and they seemed to come out of nowhere, as if she pulled them randomly out of a hat. I would think that if she had to choose from all of the interesting and funny stories of her life, that these would be at the very bottom of the list.
Seriously, guys... it was just NOT funny, and very boring....and this is coming from a big fan.
I like her show so I thought this might be an interesting listen. No so...very much high school mentality and not really funny. I am not going to listen to the entire audio, which is a big deal for me. I make a commitment for each book I pick up and with this one I am willing to stop halfway.
Funny as usually, the stories are short and hilarious. It's nice to hear the author read their own book.
The second book in Chelsea Handler's trio has many laugh out loud moments. Narrated to perfection by the author, the book is a sort of tribute to her father who is lovingly referred to as "b-tch t-ts." I've always admired authors who are able to describe what some might consider a "dysfunctional" family with love, humor, and a healthy dose of sarcasm. By embracing her father's unique view of the world, Chelsea let's us know it's all all right. A very enjoyable listen.
The adventures and thought processes of Chelsea Handler are a scream! I laughed from beginning to end. Great mindless entertainment.
