Kathy Griffin always make me laugh out loud, and this book reading is no exception. If you are a fan of her stand-up or tv show, you will adore this book. Be warned though - it's not ALL funny. It also delves into some of the more challenging parts of her life, but somehow always keeps me giggling and smilling.
Really did not know a lot about kathy Griffin when I first downloaded this book. But felt like I needed a good laugh and she totally delivered. Looking forward to going out and renting Her D-List dvd's.
The biggest challenge I have is finding a book that keeps my interest the whole time. This one did. I'm still looking for books that I loved as much as "The Glass Castle" and "The Help" - books I couldn't put down.
She is so funny. I loved that she also narrated it. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. If you like Kathy Griffin, you will LOVE this book. I highly recommend.
Kathy Griffin is a storyteller first, and perhaps a writer second. It makes sense then that this book is best enjoyed when told by the author herself. The phrasing of the book--which otherwise reads like a precocious 6th grader's diary entries--then comes to life with her trademark cadence and emphasis. This audiobook captures the frank, shameless and sincere observations she has about her family, her industry, her relationships.
I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
Funny, honest, crazy.
It's an autobiography, so you have to go with Kathy on this one. ;)
This is pretty similar to her stand up, but she definitely is honest about her life. Some items are clearly bits. It's the honest moments when she really isn't trying to be funny that are the most interesting.
The results of amphetamines during pregnancy. Donut fryers of the world rejoice! (makes sense once you read the book)
This is an interesting book. If you like her stand up you will definitley likethis book as you get some insight into why she is the way she is.
I LOVE Kathy Griffin, and think she's amazing and awesome and sooo funny. And this book was funny. But I was mainly disappointed because I also bought her last stand-up CD ("For Your Consideration" - which I also loved), and it seemed that about half of her book was about the same stuff that she talked about in her stand-up.
I know Kathy Griffin's comedy is story telling, and she's telling her life stories, but it just seemed like I paid twice for the same material.
Kathy's story and told by her is engaging and inspires as she recounts her struggles to become Kathy Griffin as we know today. The unfortunate events that lead to the breakdown of her marriage make the reader sympathize even more with her.
