This was a stupid book. It wasn't funny or interesting, just stupid. I couldn't force myself to finish it.
I laughed and cried and laugh-cry-peed-a-little through this entire book. I'm so glad I got the audio version. Hearing her say "ya'll" makes me smile every time (Alabama girl here, so "ya'll" is one of my favorite words). It's nice to know we are not alone in our journey through anxiety and other various cray cray disorders. Also, that laughing makes you feel better even when you don't want to. I look forward to her next book (which I just bought 30 seconds ago, YAY!)
An uproariously funny book with a performance par excellence by the author. You will be chuckling every time you remember her stories and you can't help but share with others.
Jenny Lawson has found a beautiful harmony of being genuinely honest and absolutely hilarious. I was laughing in public constantly to the point of being out of breath.
Her wit doesn't over power the moments of sincerity about struggling with a mental illness and trying to live life as your best self.
Jenny really shows who she is through how she talks. Her voice adds to the comedic timing and the nostalgia she feels in certain chapters. I was even laughing with how she says the titles of each chapters.
It's completely relateable. She brings an honesty that most writers and even humans are afraid to share. I truly believe everyone can have a moment they relate too in this book.
If you read one book this year. Make it this one. By far the best read I've read. Jenny Lawson was meant to be an author.
I totally want to hang out with Jenny Lawson, but I will smack her if she sings while talking! She has a good voice, but dude, this is an audio book not a music CD!!
The way the book is written and the stories are hilarious, but the singing that goes along with each chapter change made my ears ring and head throb. I wasn't even able to finish because of it.
I wouldn't necessarily turn you away from the book because some of these stories are knee slappers. Just the pain of knowing when you need to turn down your voluminous .
The wife lasted 15 minutes and I give it an hour and a half. I tried but it wasn't worth the time.
Much effort went into making it sound and be funny. It was wasted effort.
I think there is a talent there but I'll never know because I'll not listen to another one of her books. I feel she thinks using profanity would bring more amusement to the plot of her (Mostly True) autobiography and if so it fell flat.
I loved this book! Jenny Lawson is FUNNY, bright, and insightful. Her narration is also perfect. I laughed out loud so often that the people in the waiting room beside me said they were jealous. I'm looking forward to reading more Jenny!
