As an author myself, dyslexic, and ADD, I need something that grabs me. Non-fiction on things of interest to me, educates, & titillates.
No, I don't think so
It's a really light read. Not the best bio and at times really boring. Kept hoping for more from the Author of her own life. If I had nothing to read on a plane, I might pick it up to read.Sorry Sarah.
With high standards having listened to Bossypants and Yes, Please prior, it was still an entertaining listen. Silverman states outright that her life and hence memoir aren't the makings of some telenovela (I'm paraphrasing), but provides sincere humility to draw in the listener. I found Sarah surprisingly endearing and have a higher respect for her as a comedienne. Those unfamiliar with her style of humor may not find it as enjoyable but again, if you're a fan, this one is for you.
I thought maybe this book would make me like Sarah Silverman more, but it didn't! It made me like her even less (if that is possible). She just isn't funny! The book was boring - I had to make myself finish it. Save your money and don't purchase this horrible book!
Not having to listen to Sarah Silverman's voice!
No - nothing.
Sarah Silverman needs to never write another book (and if she does have someone else narrate it for her so we don't have to suffer through that whiney voice).
There are parts that are so outrageously funny that it made me want to read and see everything that Sarah Silverman has ever done. However, I also found about 40% of the book kind of boring and blah. This is absolutely not for the faint of heart - she is pretty raunchy, which I take no issue with, but thought I should give fair warning.
When I listened to Audible's sample of this book, I thought that it be would be a good comedy book, however the first 7 chapters was focused only on bedwetting. Perhaps, I should have expected this from the title, but I tend to not judge a book only on it's title. This book may be great for people not wanting a laugh, but a relatable story (if they were a bedwetter as a child) or wanting the Sarah Silverman biography. However, Sarah Silverman makes for a good narrator.
Yes, I would. Sarah is a great comedian and I love her quick delivery of one liners. I was laughing out loud so much that I think I missed some of the jokes/observations she mase in delivering the story.
Well there really was only one character... Sarah. Unless you want to call her bed wetting and name dropping celebrity encounters as characters...
No I have not. I have seen her stand up shows. Always funny and a unique talent.
Laugh out loud on more than one occasion. Its a keep a box of Kleenex near you to dry your eyes kinda book, but in a good way...
This would be a great book to listen to while on a long trip somewhere -to pass the time laughing your way to your destination !
