The hilarious stories. They seemed so far fetched at first but that didnt matter as you became more involved in the book. It was just plain fun to listen to.
I loved the fact that the author Jenny Lawson read this book. It couldn't have been read by anyone but her.
If I had the time to sit that long I would have.
I loved this book. I had never heard of the author before and took a chance on this book. It made me laugh and cry at some points. I had no problem with her singing the chapter titles, this was hilarious. I think that it was such a bonus to listen to the book instead of actually reading it for all of the sound effects that she includes and the funny voices. I am a new fan of Jenny Lawson.
It was a great mash up of essays, stories, memoirs, and well child hood trauma. Well executed. I fell in love.
Stanley. The majic squirrel.
It was heartfelt, you could tell it was the author reading about her own life. No d'état hmebt from the story.
Oh gosh, to tears of laughter, yes.
The author reading the book herself is so funny and more personal. If you can get past the swearing, however the photos in the book are hilarious.
I loved the story of the squirrel and the ritz box, however I could list so many more, but don't want to ruin the surprises!
I love how u know from the way she reads what her actual reactions and feelings were. So funny and so random.
What an amazing husband she had and her love for her daughter
The audible is better then the book!
Unexpected, Funny & Fun
I had never heard of the author and was only attracted to the book by the name, but I am so glad I listened. I laughed out loud so many times that my children thought I was losing my mind.
Fairly high up, I really enjoy ones about people who just talk about very memorable lives.
I always like it when the book is read by the author.
I listened to this book while I was working in my cubicle - this book gave me the laughs I needed to get through my day!!!
Lawson's first book is worth your time. This memoir is an enjoyable and compelling read/listen. Her self effacing sense of humor allow her to tackle very personal and sensitive issues with insight and clarity. Lawson reads the book herself; she handles every narrative beat expertly. I'm a regular reader of her blog as a result of this book and hope she writes another.
I love that it seems so 100% genuine. I feel like Jenny Lawson is now one of my best buddies. She was hysterical, often inappropriate and that was awesome.
The talking squirrel. You have to read it and find out why.
The actual feelings off the book. I just wish that I could have seen the pictures!
I laughed. A lot. I had to stop listening while I was driving because I almost crashed. My son thought that I was crying because I was howling with laughter.
Buy it. It was frigging hilarious.
An actual story instead of a bunch of profanity. She tries to be cute and funny but it comes off as disengenuous and stupid. After 3 or 4 tries, I couldn't listen any more.
I would definately recommend this audiobook. I have not read the book but I do not think you could get the whole picture from another's voice. Most people say that an audio book is not as good as a "real" book, but I disagree, especially with Jenny reading it. She is charming, genuine and a real joy to listen to. If you are not afraid of the "F" word, this one is a hit!!!!
Having the author tell her own story was terrific. Loved the casual freestyle of her reading.
No, but I will again!
Laughing one minute and crying the next (actually more laughing than crying),
Keep writing, Jenny
