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
This book had me laughing out loud! I found it so funny that I took it with me and let my clients listen to it while they were working out. Highly recommend, especially if you've ever lived in Texas.
This has to be the funniest book I have ever read! The author/subject of this memoir, in telling her own life history, managed to make me feel both normal and better about my own crazy life, which is by no means an easy task. I highly recommend this book to anyone who could use a good, therapeutic, laugh until you cry or wet your pants story. (A word of warning; do not read this in a public area or risk embarrassing yourself.)
The audio version was the best. The author reads it so naturally and with additional commentary, it's like grabbing a drink with a friend and listening to her latest (possibly exaggerated) hilarious events.
All the events/stories are totally relatable yet the author’s experiences seem to always take it one step further.
“knock knock mother F***er!”
This book was absolutely fabulous; I couldn’t stop listening to it—well, I had to stop at work because I was constantly laughing out loud and making a bit of a scene. It literally made me look forward to my hour long (each way) commutes to and from work each day. After finishing it, I’ve tried to find another book this awesome and so far nothing has even come close.
I loved that the author read the book, it allowed her story to be told in exactly the way she wanted it to be.
The author was totally hilarious!
I haven't listened to any others yet, but I definitely will seek them out now
I laughed out loud multiple times and once laughed so hard that I cried.
