  • Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Would you try another book from Chelsea Handler and/or Chelsea Handler?

    Maybe.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was a letdown, like she just got tired of writing. Or she came up against her deadline and just ended it there.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Chelsea Handler?

    Who edits these questions? You already asked me that.


    Do you think Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Because this was just a bunch of stories and the characters weren't all that interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I've seen Chelsea Lately and I think she's funny, but a little bit of her goes a long way. This was too much.

  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

    Story
    (2691)

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Lisa says: "If you like Mindy, you'll enjoy this listen."
    "Funny. But I thought it'd be funnier."

    Where does Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    2nd out of 3.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mindy Kaling before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any other books by her. I'm not sure there are any.


    What does Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I've listened to books where I felt I'd like it better if I was just reading it myself. But my inner reading voice wouldn't have translated Mindy's humor as well her own voice does.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

  • Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 21 mins)

    Story
    (442)

    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."
    "Great story, great voice"

    Where does Guts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best (out of 3, so take that as you will)


    What did you like best about this story?

    That she narrated it. She is possibly the funniest woman on the planet.


    What about Kristen Johnston’s performance did you like?

    Her humor and her ability to poke fun at herself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not that I can recall. It was mostly just very funny.
