I don't think I would read another one of Heather's books.
I just didn't care for the subject matter.
Heather of course.
Any and all mentions of "housewives"
Let me start out by saying that Heather McDonald was super funny during this book and I did find myself laughing, particularly when talking about the shenanigans with Chelsea and her coworkers. However, this book is not at all like Bossypants. While the previously mentioned Tina Fey masterpiece left me laughing, feeling empowered as a woman and overall just inspired, this book made me feel sad. The endless blather of "the housewives" and juicy gossip of other people's tragic lives started to really wear on me after a while. These petty, mildly amusing stories juxtaposed with stories of being a dedicated church goer and trying to be a better mom than everyone else she decides to have in her social circle left me feeling like this book pretty much describes what's wrong with America.
What could I have been thinking? Subject trivial. Comments really not funny. Did not find narration particularly good. What story??

Just a light hearted hilarious book; love it. Some others may not and may think it's inappropriate, in that case, judge the book by the cover and you shouldn't have purchased it anyway! It's a riot!
All written by Tina Fey, Ellen,...and a few others.
Totally laughed out loud on many occassions.
Yes, I couldn't stop listening to it. It was filled with entertaining stories and was well written.
It's too bad it wasn't longer.
I'm sure Mrs. McDonald tells an amusing anecdote in person or on tv, but when she stretches a humorous moment out to a 10-minute book chapter it loses all of it's entertainment value. This book is like an extended version of the "what I did last summer" essay written by a half-clever high school kid.
I've been an Audible customer practically since the site began and read a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, humor and more serious offerings. This is the first book I've ever downloaded that I didn't finish. It's just not worth the time.
