I was very disappointed by this audiobook. It was recommended based on previous listens (Caitlin Moran, Mindy Kaling) and is not at all the same calibre. While Jenny Lawson's writing may be very successful in blog format, it doesn't transition to a book. I was very bored by her stories and probably only chuckled twice in 8 hours. (As an aside, her way of pronouncing "ing" as "ingk" is infuriating). Jenny Lawson would no doubt be a hilarious person to have as a friend. But her book is a poor attempt at the successful-blog-turned-book-deal format. I would NOT recommend this book.
Her voice and inflections for the different characters was astonishing and very memorable. She's an incredible talent.
This book has some very memorable moments but across the board, I didn't enjoy it.
I chose this book partly because I was curious about Kate Winslet's choice... found out later that she had been attached to a movie version so that explains it.
