Let me start by saying I love Sarah Silverman. She is beautiful, sexy and her way of mixing playful innocence with shocking vulgarity always makes me laugh. I found myself Yahooing her, sorry Google, throughout this book only to discover that she likes to Google herself as well. I remember a few times wetting the bed up until I was about nine or ten so I can sympathize. If you like listening to Sarah tell a story you'll like this book...or at least I did until I got to the 2nd part after the innovative "mid-word". Sarah tries to defend her decision to tell a deliberately race-provoking joke, a joke by the way that's about as amusing as a knock knock joke, only to follow up with a statement that implies all conservatives are racist, especially anyone who would disagree with Barak Obama. As someone who is a big fan of Jesus, I can turn the other cheek when she mocks Christians, because I don't think the religion or the followers are as remotely important as the real Jesus. As someone who likes to drink socially I can ignore the stupidity that she espouses when she makes pot smoking out to be harmless while alcohol is as bad as cocaine. But I'm getting sick and tired of comedians and people in the arts in general thinking that they're audience isn't filled with a fare share of economic or social conservative people too. Everybody likes to laugh Sarah. Don't be such a Comedy Nazi. Just because you want to have Obama's babies doesn't mean everyone listening thinks he's the bees knees...pahleese. Well enough of my complaints. I've got to go finish Sarah's book now. I love that sexy Hebrew in ways that makes Jesus ashamed of me.
Hearing Sarah Silverman read her own book aloud seems it was the way it was meant to be. Not the greatest ending, but definitely worth listening to.
Sarah Silverman does a nice job with the narration, but only a few parts really made me chuckle, a lot of it was painfully boring and I found myself zoning out while listening to it (which happens sometimes with all audiobooks) but with this one I felt no desire to rewind back to what I had missed.
Its under six hours but she should have stopped with two.
This book is simply bad; there is nothing that can make it worthwhile. To make it worst, Sarah Silverman's voice is frustratingly annoying. She is an adult woman that talks like a 6-year old. She correctly admits in the book that she thinks she is way cuter than she is. Tina Fey's Bossypants is a hit - this is NOTHING like it. The story sucks, the reading sucks. Whoever thought writing and publishing this boos was a good idea was wrong.
The reading by the author gives extra zing to an already funny book. If you like her style of humor, you'll love this.
Avid audiobook addict!
Funny book, but really her life was pretty dull until she made it big. Unsurprising that she had some serious problems with depression when she was a teenager--obviously her brain doesn't work like regular people.
Sarah Silverman is a great narrator, but her on air comedy just doesn't translate into book form.
By far the worst audiobook I've ever tried to listen to. Monotonous,choppy,redundant,and whiny... I gave it a 1 star because site wouldn't allow a zero!
