Yes, and again and again.
There are so many it's hard to pick. Having a drink while listening is not a good choice if you want to avoid blowing it out your nose. But my husband and I keep repeating this line to each other, a variation of which shows up repeatedly in heated conversations between Jenny and her husband Victor after she's gotten into some modern-day Lucy Ricardo pickle, "I am trying to save your life, M----- F-----!" She says all the candid and inappropriate things we all think but are too scared to say out loud -- well at least I think them. Guess I shouldn't try to speak for everyone.
She is real and raw and bat-$#*&-crazy funny. Her delivery is spot-on
Bat-$#!& Crazy Funny & Real
This book is for every person who has ever experienced a sense of not belonging, not being enough, not having enough, and overall generalized anxiety, and who has decided to find the absurdity in it and laugh yourself through it, with the occasional space for gut-wrenching tears. Jenny Lawson is my new hero.
His accents and dialects, especially in the male characters, are perfectly nuanced. I would swear his Dr. Patel is a an Indian man speaking and the characters of Jake and Pat's father are very authentic Philly accents and voices.
I love Pat, inside and out.
Haven't seen the movie yet, but am looking forward to it.
This book got my husband to consider reading and watching the real Pride & Prejudice, so I'm a fan for that reason alone. We enjoyed it together on a family car trip. The characters were perfectly aligned with my memory of Jane Austen's characterizations, except that Mary was a bit more likable, which was fine with me.
