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!!
I have never laughed like this listening to a book...
It was her book..her personality..and that made it all the better ..
I wish she was my neighbor..wonderfully uplifting and I was so sad when I had finished the book as I wanted many more chapters..
one of the best, there was some extra stuff in the audio than in the physical book. It felt like she was right there with us.
how it felt like a conversation between friends
Perhaps it is my age : It was mildly amusing and seemed to be honest; the author did a good job of narrating and it was nice to hear the emphasis placed where she wanted it to be although it got to my ears it got over the top. And, as we all know, no one gets out of childhood unscathed and it sounded as though she'd been 'scathed' often and hard. So, if you like coming of age stories and enjoy her writing, it is worth the credit. If you are over the 60 mark, it may not be as funny as you keep hearing it is. Or maybe it is just me.
I do crossword puzzles in pen.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened too - mainly because Jenny Lawson narrates her story wonderfully.
This book is great for anyone who has ever been ashamed of, proud of, scared of, or confused by his or her own family.
It is light - not too 'thoughty' if that is what you like. On the other hand, it is by and about an immature young woman of no great discernment. You need to have a sense of the larger issues of life to properly make the silly stuff funny. Or believable.
And her vocabulary... really, not funny in this decade - just tiresome.
Yes - give up 3/4 through. I hate wasting that money!
Yes! I have recommended it to ALL my friends. I love that I got to hear the author's voice so I knew exactly the tone she was going for.
It is HILARIOUS. I've listened to it twice now.
My favorite characters are her father, simply because you cannot make that stuff up.
So many... but I loved her reenacting any interaction she had with Victor.
I laughed and cried. But the moments when I did cry, I was quickly able to laugh or at least smile again soon after.
This is damn funny, Y'all. You will not be sorry if you pick this book up or decide to listen to it. Jenny Lawson is an amazingly honest and funny writer. I wish there was more out there like her.
