Yes. Her tone make the book!
The narrator/ author's tone was hilariously perfect!
There were several times I laughed out loud!
Loved the redneck stories plus the honesty if anxiety disorder. I have no idea what the author looks like, but her voice reminded me of Kristen Bell, so if there's ever a movie made, there's the lead!
MY THOUGHTS: I loved this book so much! I had never heard of Jenny Lawson before, but this had good reviews so I thought I'd pick it up on Audible. I'm so glad that I did. It's hard to find the words to describe this book. It's just funny. This book was incredibly hilarious. I was listening to quite a bit of this while I was at work and I was biting my cheeks to stop myself from laughing out loud. I highly enjoyed every moment of this book.
I also loved the more serious moments. In chapter 25, Lawson talks about her anxiety and her husband being well-meaning, but just not understanding. I can completely relate to that. I feel like she took the thoughts right out of my head.
COVER: After reading the book, I can see that the cover is perfect for it!
Jenny Lawson is charming, quirky, extremely funny, adorable, and unbelievably bizarre yet strangely relatable. I loved the cadence of her voice, the sarcasm in her tone, and her never-ending wit. One day I'd love to just hang out with her in a bar because I would totally be friends with this woman. She's amazing. And so is her book!
Funny stories about growing up odd inTexas. The author has a great writing voice and is a good reader to boot. I find it best to consume short stories and vignette-type pieces in small doses over time and that rule applies here. The only thing I wished she hadn't done was to sing the chapter titles. But other than that, good stuff.
I do not usually laugh out loud when listening to audio books. I ended up snorting with laughter after trying to be quiet while listening to this book. Luckily no one was around to hear me. Such a good listen. Jenny Lawson's interactions with her husband Victor were hilarious. Jenny is very funny and upbeat about even the difficult events in her life. A must read.
I laughed quite a bit through this book. It was well written and well read. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun heartwarming glimpse into one woman's life.
The best move ever was having Jenny Lawson read her own book. It was added so much to the story hearing it with the intentioned witty cadence.
