I absolutely loved this book! I think once I got used to Julie Klausner's talk about sex, sex and sex, things got really interesting and I was hooked! I don't remember ever being bored and her narration was filled with the right amount of energy that it felt like she was casually telling you about her life. I would like to say that the story was more about her sex life than I expected without any details left out. If you don't like profanity and swearwords this book may not be so entertaining for you but I loved it.
For the record I have no idea who she is, I just thought the story seemed fascinating and her narrating good. However, sometimes I would remind myself that the people she talk about are real and not fictional characters. She is pretty ruthless about them and at times very rude! But nevertheless I was very entertained and don't regret purchasing it at all.
I never really read non-fiction because I often end up being bored at point but my God, this book has been a bit of a revelation to me from the very beginning. I 'read' this book in the audiobook format which I can recommend to anyone who, like me, is very interested in the content but has a hard time committing to non-fiction at times (the narrating is good too.)
I feel like this book is a must-read to anyone no matter if you're an introvert yourself. I am not a big introvert but I feel like I learned a lot about myself and other people - some things just make more sense now and I feel like this book has made me wiser.
I was very doubtful about buying this book because some people mentioned mumbling and being disappointed with the comedy but I decided to try it anyway and oh my God. I finished this book in two days, listening to it non-stop no matter where I went. I haven't watched 30 Rock or been much aware of what's been going on with SNL but that didn't seem to matter that much. I might not have laughed out loud all the way through but I was very, very, VERY entertained by it. When she didn't make me laugh, she made me think.
About the mumbling I feel bad for the readers who considered it a bad thing - her mumbling is a part of the jokes she is telling. If you listen to what she says it's absolutely hilarious. I think I laughed the most when she mumbled something ridiculous at the end of her sentence - I kind of feel bad for the readers who didn't get to enjoy it like I did.
I'm so happy I decided to buy this book!!
Not sure. I mean the story is nice, the dialogue is funny but things went a bit slow so probably not really.
R was my absolute fave, obviously. His mind and inner dialogues are really funny and he's just a nice, warming character. His best friend is also really funny, whenever he was present things were fun.
First of I'd like to say that the story itself is really cute, it's nice and it's thoughtful. It is kind of weird how you're reading about how the humans are pretty much doomed and everyone is either dead or a zombie yet it continues to be a light story. It's a very cute story really but it's lacking something towards the end, I didn't even realize it ended and I just sat for more, feeling like something was missing that didn't make the story THAT good.
However the characters are nice and the narrating was really what caught me. Kevin Kenerly has an extremely nice and relaxing voice and he's very good at doing zombie noises and sounding like other characters. I hope to find more books narrated by him.
