Struggled to finish. There were a lot of funny and interesting stories but it took me over a year to finish because her voice, while charming at times, really became just plain annoying. I didn't even listen to the epilogue completely because she was intolerable.
That said, I didn't hate it and some parts I could relisten to again and again. I'm talking to you taxidermy woodchuck....squirrel? I forgot.
Jenny is cool people though. We could totally hang out and be antisocial and awkward together.
The author tried too hard to be funny. Very negative.
Get to the point faster
The narration was fine - it was the content that was lacking
The "singing" of each chapter title
I have listened twice. Just wanted to relisten for more in-sight.
I try not to compare books, each should be enjoyed as their own single work.
Honesty is the best policy, but is scary as hell for everyone.
I loved it! I found myself laughing out loud and probably should have been embarrassed at times at the looks I received when listening in public. so worth it!
OK, she is zany, certainly crazy but unquestionably brilliant. Smart, weird and wonderful this book is non stop laugh out loud. Just buy it and enjoy.
Jenny Lawson is so crazy but so funny. I laughed out loud so many times during this book. She has an interesting take on life and a even more interesting family. I love that she reads the book herself. Adding her own voice makes this listen even more enjoyable.
Yes and I will I'm sure. I've recommended it to all my friends.
Jenny has a wild imagination and an interesting perspective on life. Her upbringing is very unorthodox which gave this book a different spin rather than your run-of-the-mill, a comedian writes a book. I've read several of those and her memoir surpasses everyone.
My favorite scene was when she was being chased by the turkeys at her school. It was hilarious the way she describes it.
Laughed out loud several times.
My only criticism of the book is the singing on the chapter titles. I know Jenny is hilarious and she must have thought this was funny, but it was a bit annoying and overdone.
I am at a total loss now having finished both of her audiobooks. (Yes. I know. This is the first one. I listened out of order, which is actually great because the singing of the titles may have turned me off to listen to the second had I listened to the first FIRST and I am so happy it didn't get a chance to. But I digress...)
Jenny Lawson is my FAVORITE! I don't think anything will be able to measure up now. She set the bar WAY too high. I dare you to listen to this and not love it. (I know, some people have, but that was before the whole dare so it totally doesn't count.)
I just--I just can't think of anything else wonderful to say. It may be because of all the shots she made me do toward the end. The words escape me.
All joking aside, these are hilarious audiobooks. Not for people easily offended (I can just picture my 87-year-old Aunt falling on a fainting couch, and she is cuhRAYzy progressive for her age!) but if you can handle bawdy humor, and a ton of roadkill, you'll love this book. Or your money back. I'll take it out of what Penguin owes me for all the drinks.
THANK you, Jenny! It's the most I've laughed in months. And at a time that I really needed it. ❤️
