she started talking bout how she would have better material if she had been raped or better like makenzie phillips molested her whole life. she is not funny
the rape and molesting stuff like she wishes it would have happened to her. so dumb
some funny parts just really offended and frankly that is not easy to do!!

I would always try something at least once.
Nah, I love this stuff. It was just difficult to follow.
I was undressing her with my ears, so that was a plus. In terms of dislike... It was difficult to tell what was a joke and what was supposed to be serious.
I can't think of anything off the top of my head.
I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.
Sarah Silverman is sometimes brilliant, and often just so-so. This is one of the so-so times.
I think she's over-done the crudeness. Not because I'm a prude, but just because I'm numb to it from her over-use. Reminds me a bit of Howard Stern in that sense. It's not shocking anymore. Now it's just unfunny and drab.
I wasn't terribly moved by this book, and having just listened to David Mitchell's autobiography the bar was really, really high for humor.
I give it a solid "eh".
The story gets a little slow in some parts. I'd like more funny stories
more funny stories, may of the funnier stories were laugh out loud hilarious
Sarah was funny and engaging. I was glad she read the book- it really gave life to the story

Sarah's childishly stupid charm along with some surprisingly intelligent interludes make for a rewarding listen. I have the book but wanted to hear her read it and was not disappointed. The sound effects, snorts and giggles made it highly entertaining.
Her brutal honesty, especially about issues such as race, sex and censorship.
Sarah - in her many incarnations
"Straight from her horse-ish mouth!"
This is one of the rare audios that I will listen to over and over again!
Her stand up and sketch comedy has always made me laugh except when pushing her political views on others.
The book starts off great with her history, but gets so preachy during chapters 20-24 I couldn't finish the book.
This book is amazing and hilarious. Totally inappropriate, but endearing. I never really watched Sarah Silverman, or listened to any of her comedy, but I think I will now because I love her.
Great book, but not for those who can't take Sarah Silverman's raunchy humor. She's very candid and I think her narrating the book is what makes the book so funny. I've listened to this multiple times and I still enjoy it every time!
Well the biggest thing you see is Sarah's comedic style shine through. Through the book there are some very hilarious moments, but for me the biggest thing about this book is its mixture of serious and relatable situations followed by some comedic relief. Of course that being said, one should be aware that her sense of humor is more shocking and controversial compared to other comedians and If you aren't a Sarah fan then this book might not be such an appetizing read. Something also to note is that the storyline jumps around switching between moments of her high school life to life in New York then to her early teenage years which make the book somewhat hard to follow.
The opening forward is by far my favorite moment in terms of comedic effect which is what you would expect from a book written by a comedian. Beyond this, the stories talking about her battle against depression is probably the most touching, showing that we all have our inner demons.
I think the best thing about this audio book is the fact that she is the one narrating it. She can really bring to life to the characters in her book because they are all in her life. You also get the feel and mood from the tone of her voice, which brings a better sense to what the subject is.
For me, the reaction was neither extreme nor blank. It brought both moments where you would laugh and moments where you would want to cry. It all depends on how you perceive comedy and personal drama and wither you can relate to it or not.
Lots of swearing, racial jokes, and pee, but regardless this is overall a great read
I love the Sara Silverman show. I do not love this "book". It is terrible. At one point she is actually making fun of the fact that she has nothing to say and really has no business writing a book. Sarah, I love your show. I loved Jesus Is Magic. This just is not a gem. It's ok no one hits only home runs.
It just did not feel like she tried very hard. It was no where near as well choreographed as her usual comedy. I suppose she could have focused more on having some sort of narrative arc.
Sarah is a good performer.
