Jenny Lawson's chipper, cheerful delivery of some of the silliest, saddest, craziest, and sometimes slightly disturbing events you can imagine is refreshing, riveting, and just plain pee-your-pants funny. Brave and loving and quirky - I wish I knew her!
It was the second book I ever listened to on tape and I am hooked!! I wish it was my first since I wasn't a fan of the first. This was so funny it made up for it.
Her candid moments were as if it was a glimpse into a life so funny it has to be true. It makes you want to have a friend like Jenny.
Her quirky tone, it brought a lot to the experience.
Jenny is 'that' friend, the one that makes you question your own views and laugh when you realize shes being real.

Absolutely awesomely funny.
I'm not sure off the top of my head because it's THAT GOOD.
I haven't! I didn't know Jenny Lawson had others and now I shall go buy!
I could relate to her on sooooooo many levels. As a mom, she does an excellent job of telling it like it is. No sugar coating here folks, which is perfect.
LOVED EVERY CHAPTER.
I really liked it. I thought it was funny and touching. And Jenny does a great job reading it.
Definitely TOP 10!
I love this writer's sense of humor. I would frequently laugh out loud at her stories. She was entertaining, witty, and fearless!
Her intonation and emotion about her story is moving. I think you would lose her sincerity if read independently.
This book made me laugh and cry... simultaneously... I'm lucky I didn't leak any fluid with the exception of tears....
I'd never read The Bloggess before, but you don't need any background to find this totally hilarious. She has a very different background than normally heard - from west Texas with a crazy taxidermist father. But she doesn't really have a Texan accent and, as a Texan myself, I can say this is definitely a unique story. Totally hilarious! I found myself LOLing as I walked my dog - I think Jenny would be happy to know that my neighbors now think I'm a little crazy. Also, I'm going to have to start reading her blog.
The author is the best part of this, she is doing stand up comedy while reading her story. I cant stop reading it I have my headphones on right now and I'm not taking them off till I hear the whole thing.
JUST GET IT IF YOU WANT TO FINALLY LISTEN TO A FUNNY BOOK...
the performance. no one can read & perform it any better than Jenny herself.
the chapter about drugs, the chapter about blogress, the chapter where she got lost, the chapter about jinkens, the whole book is memorable. sometimes it remineded me of myself. i can totally relate myself to Jenny. i mean not that i have the mental illness but i tend to drift away in conversation. also i dont mean to be rude to say i dont have a mental illness and other ppl have, that would be extremly rude but you know what i mean here. ;)
the drug scene was just hilarious. i had to keep my face straight while driving and listening to it but it was so hard.
"Let's Pretend it never happened"
i strongly recomment this book to my friends and listeners here if you want something to brighton your day. i am just hooked to this book. i listened to this book two times already and i am sure i will listen to it again and again.
This story is truly unique and very engaging, once you start listening its very hard to stop.
I'm a very simple person who love to read or listen to books. My favorite genre is Historical Romance but am willing to spread my wings and fly temporarily over to sample a little young adult adventure or suspense, but I will without fail, return to romance..
Let's pretend this never happened...I laughed so much throughout the entire book. Even had to hold my mouth while in the office a couple of times. The deer suit, oh my, even typing that phrase takes me back into Jenny Lawson's world.
Jenny narrates her own book, too which, I am grateful, because it is her life story. The post it note argument had me in tears of laughter.
Jenny manage to teach you life lessons through laughter. If you need a good laugh and can handle profanity, then you will enjoy this book. Jenny really does curse a ton and she warns you in the beginning of the book..
Overall, it is worth the credit. The only bad part...the book ended
