I love books on tape. I listen everyday, while walking the dog, doing work, driving long distances. I was looking for something light, since I had listened to several books that were heavier just prior to listening to this one. This one is so stupid, I can't waste my time on it. I made a mistake. There must be a market for it, but I have tried to start over with it several times. Who wants to waste a whole book. I truly did with this one.
I couldn't even take a sip of drink because I was scared I would choke from laughing so hard! The funniest book I've ever listened to.
Narration and story line were both hilarious
Yes, Jenny is hilarious! I related to a lot that she had been through. I loved how she shined a funny, happy, and oddly optimistic light on almost everything.
Jenny is great, keeps you entertained, and wondering what the hell is going to happen to her next. This is because there is no way you could guess what you are about to hear.
I did not know anything about Jenny when I bought this book, but I am so thankful I stopped and listened.
Most people do not....
I laughed, I cried, and I related in a way I did not feel was possible. Her relationship with her husband, Victor, is just like mine with my girlfriend.
Thank you Jenny!!!
Just having Jenny read it made it that much better. The bonus chapters didn't hurt either. She's brilliant.
I wouldn't compare this to anything. Read it, you'll see what I mean.
I love all her stories about her father. He is ca-razy. Also, Victor. God bless Victor.
I laughed until I cried. Also the combination of bad freeway traffic and her troubles having a baby made me a little sick, but that's mostly just a personal problem.
I'm looking forward to everything else she eventually puts out. I mean, my friend and I seriously drove to another state to see her and get our books signed. She was worth it.
I love the sincerity, the humor, and the narration. Jenny's voice is very nice, and I feel like it'd be hard for someone else to give her stories the correct inflection.
Probably the magic squirrel. That, or the time she wore a deer sweater. Or the cow thing. Maybe truck/snake incident.
Her narration made it feel like she was telling her story just to me. She's warm and inviting on her blog, and warm and inviting in her storytelling.
So. Much. Taxidermy.
This is a woman who's incredibly honest (and funny) about a wide variety of topics, and I feel like she did a damn good job. She made me laugh and read parts of it out loud to my daughter (or anyone else within earshot), even when the topic at hand wasn't necessarily palatable.
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
funny, honest, entertainment
the childhood traumas, when she finds hamlet mouse... so hilarious!
no, I didn't know her, now I appreciate her humor!
makes no sense but you won't stop laughing
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
If the person like crazier humor than say( Oh,like say Tina Fey or Mindy something. I did not enjoy the above mentioned authors; I did enjoy this) it is read in a natural tempo; in a way it is read so naturally. It is like she talks to a friend. Everyone on anti-depressants can somehow see themselves in the way she looks at regular situation as a huge thing. The funniest situations( at least in audio edition) takes place in her head. It gets three overfall stars because it is funny the very first time. This is not a multiplum-times listening experience: Perfect for a day you have $19.10, needingba great laughter and need to se bloggers like us as the crazy ones.
Made it shorter and include Victor's voice.
She is genuinly cool-crazy blogger.
Her parents should have created a speech where we'd get ther verson.
I'm painfully obsessed with Jenny Lawson, as should you all be. Her narration is hysterical and this book got me through a road trip across state lines with ease. Joy even. Although I almost crashed my car from uncontrollable laughter. Also nearly peed myself. But totally worth it.
Jenny's father is downright fabulous. Possibly deserves his own book.
I'd have to say she's pretty damn good at portraying herself. Which is hard.
I cannot stress this enough: YES.
It takes a special kind of human to appreciate humor like this. To those of you that think this was a waste of a credit: you are not one of us. That is probably a good thing, as by "us" I mean the incredibly strange and socially awkward. If you've been called "weird" your entire life- this book is for you. Listening to Jenny was like listening to the voice in my head on a REALLY funny night. She is utterly brilliant and a shining beacon of individuality in world that sometimes forgets that letting our freak flags fly is the greatest gift we can give. Love you Jenny Lawson. F*cking love you.
I really enjoyed the audio of this book. It is hard to believe reading the book would be as funny. Her narration was truly part of the story, as far as I am concerned.
I loved her account of being a HR person. It was easy to believe every event she relayed to the reader. I laughed out loud through this section. I loved the walkie talkie going off during a prayer and the confronting those who photo copied body parts.
Pretty much. I had to wait until a lull point before I could turn it off, which was hard because there really any lulls.
Great read. She talks about another book and I for one am anxiously waiting.
