I love these "memoirs" that are read by the author. This is the third I have listened to and totally turned me on to the Bloggess. Since I have only listened to two other similar titles it is hard to rank, but I think I listened to the whole thing in only 3 days so...
Her honesty, humor and quirkiness.
This book was so funny. I could not stop listening. Jenny Lawson is funny, engaging, and so honest. Loved it.
Tell us about yourself! I am 66, live in se ala. retired military. Retired. I am a Christian. Married, 4 children 6grands, & 1 great . Bye
Not until she cleans up her mouth. Our youth get access yo this type of thing. They deserve better. No wonder we hear the F word so much. You may think its cute, but it just makes you sound trashy.
I quit after chapter 1!
Filthy language. I can assure there large amounts of people out here starving for this type of comedy.
It could have been a good book. Even a fine read for all generations. Too bad she had to ruin it.
I know we don't always see eye to eye on many things. Iwsh you all the best in your career. Again I emphasize the importance of cleaning up our language for the sake of our young people. I AM ALMOST SURE THE AUTHOR WILL NEVER READ THIS BUT AT LEAST I TRIED.
Love everything about this book. The characters (true or not) were wonderfully portraid, I loved them all. Her story is so outrageously funny (and a little bit sad at times) that I couldn't put it down.
I am sure people were wondering why I was laughing out loud as I rode my bike through our neighborhood listening to this.
If you need a break from the stresses of life, listen to this!
I bought this book because it was recommended due to the fact that I listen to David Sedaris.
All of David Sedaris's books are hilarious.
She tells the story well.
The Grandpa and racoon story. So funny I was crying!
Absolutely. There are more misadventures here than one can absorb in a first trip through this "mostly true" memoir.
The taxidermist lends a lot of credibility to the story. You can't make this stuff up.
You're not going to believe this but ...
Absolutley!!! This book was so funny & entertaining! I've recomened this book to most of my friends and family(the cool ones).
The fact that it made me laugh out loud so many times. I'm sure my co-workers thought I was crazy.
Her personality. I love how she sings the titles of the chapters! It felt like she was just telling you stories of her life, not reading a book.
F--k you Jenkins!
I hope she writes another one!! Thanks for the laughs!
Tell us about yourself!
So very funny, it is like a stand up. Very very funny! It's like she is having a conversation with herself and you get to hear her crazy internal monologue.
I had no idea what to expect with this book, being unfamiliar with Jenny's blog.....OMG, it is hysterical! Finished it in one afternoon --- I just couldn't stop listening! Three more people bought this book after I played the Ex-Lax chapter for them. Jenny Lawson is funny, crude, tender, loving and human. She has issues (and who doesn't), but she has an amazing gift for putting her life's experiences into words that anyone can relate to. If you have a crazy family that you love, then you will love this book!!
