I found a lot of this book to be obnoxious. I laughed in parts, but, it was often pretty mean, gross, offensive, or crude humor.
I was disappointed with this download. I noticed it was in the top 10, wanted something lighthearted, and missed it in this book. Handler is not funny. She got a few snorts out of me, no LOLllers. She comes across, rather than funny, as bitchy, grating, and mean.
Maybe that's her MO in standup. Some of you may like that brand of vodka in comedy.
But for me, my recommendation is to use your credit elsewhere.
Witty and raunchy can best describe Chelsea Handler AND her book. Not only was the story absolutely enjoyable, but her narration is what truly makes the audio version of this book so great. I've read the book and listened to it, and I must say I almost prefer the audio version which is rare for me. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Chelsea or her type of comedy, and I will certainly listen again (I've already listened a few times at that!).
Yes I would recommend this audiobook and have multiple times!
I bought this because my grandfather passed away and I needed something to get my mind off of everything and lets just say depression and tears turned to laughing so hard I had to turn it off so I could catch my breath.
I loved the fact that it was narrated by Chelsea Handler herself! I read the book before but it was so much better listening to her tell the stories.
I loved hearing about her family and her as a kid
I have read this book before but the audio book made me laugh even harder
The stories were very entertaining, but the book isn't well written. She recycles punch lines and tongue-in-cheek descriptors way too often for such a short book.
Counselor with eclectic taste, I enjoy all types of fiction, dark, strange and twisted things, humor and explicitly.
Way Up There... TOPS!
Well.... how can I put this? The part that referred to the anatomy of man...LOL
Her delivery is great, as always, raunchy yup... and I love her lack of a filter
Several moments had me crossing my legs (wink)... I was laughing so hard
If your a prude pass it by, If you want to laugh out loud don't!
No, I probably will stay clear from any books written by Chelsea Handler.
Have no issues getting a book with her as a narrator, she truly did do a good job there.
No, but it will probably be a while before I order another autobiography style book from the entertainment section.
Chelsea Handler was the perfect narrator for this book, it is just a pity that most of the context came over as a self indulgent rant.
There are some parts in the book in which you can finally detect her brutally honest,funny and unafraid personality. But they are to far and few in-between the other parts that all come over as self absorbed, eager to name drop & whinny.
I just expected to laugh more…
I did not think this one was that great, so I wouldn't be interested in follow up.
It was a letdown, like she just got tired of writing. Or she came up against her deadline and just ended it there.
Who edits these questions? You already asked me that.
No. Because this was just a bunch of stories and the characters weren't all that interesting.
I've seen Chelsea Lately and I think she's funny, but a little bit of her goes a long way. This was too much.
