    The two-time Emmy Award-winning actress has written her first book, a surprisingly raw and triumphant memoir that is outrageous, moving, sweet, tragic, and heartbreakingly honest. Guts is a true triumph - a memoir that manages to be as frank and revealing as Augusten Burroughs, yet as hilarious and witty as David Sedaris.

    John Campbell says: "Whiskey and cigarettes have never sounded so good."
    "Should win awards for best audiobook performance"

    What made the experience of listening to Guts the most enjoyable?

    I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and never bothered to review one, but this is one of the best performed audiobooks that I've come across. After listening to this, I would listen to any audiobook performed by Kristen Johnston and her


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kristen Johnston. But Nurse Wretched is a close second. Followed by Mr. James.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything in the hospital. Who knew peritonitis in the public ward of a London hospital could be so funny. I also like 'bloated has-been' and 'ice cubes.'


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that she is the kind of reader who really voices all the characters and I appreciate how much craft went into this audiobook. The fact that she wrote it too is pretty incredible.

  • My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 14 mins)

    You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool.

    Kathryn says: "Chelsea, You are HYSTERICAL!"
    "Not so great narrator"
    Overall

    I think the book is fine but the narrator, who is not Chelsea Handler, leaves something to be desired.
