Story was okay but Sarah's sarcastic time is what made this book. highly recommend if you don't offend easily. Lots of poop and penis jokes.
I love Sarah, and while I have to admit enjoying a peek into her childhood antics and life as a write etc., the stories were not particularly entertaining and some felt like filler.
I have read Nick Offerman, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, the list goes on. They are all amazing, Sarah Silverman's is by far the best. At every corner it is hilarious in the deepest parts of your stomach, the autobiographical parts are more serving to the comedy than they are redemptive, but if you just want a pure comedy book, that's a good thing! Please if you enjoy this genre put this at the top of your to do list.
I don't know what I was hoping for, but I liked the book, just didn't love it. I definitely don't recommend listening to chapter 26 while lifting weights. Her dad's voice-mail messages had me laughing out loud and almost dropped the barbell on myself.
On a quest for a book that will knock Tina Fey's "Bossypants" out and win the coveted title of "My Favorite Book."
I kept waiting for this book to get better. It was as if each chapter was trying to out-do the previous chapter with sad and depressing stories, it just kept getting worse. At the mid point, she talks about how boring it would be to read someone's diary and then she goes on to literally read from her diary. Awful.
No... Unless I was looking for a way to be depressed and annoyed at the same time.
You'd think a comedian's book would be at least a little funny... This one is not. Do not waste your time or money on this one.

Sarah Silverman does exactly the perfect sort of job you'd expect someone of her talent to do in reading her own story. A wide -ranging and honest set of tales and observations from a funny lady.
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.
