    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    What made the experience of listening to Seriously...I'm Kidding the most enjoyable?

    Ellen doesn't just read the paragraphs.... it's more like she's acting or delivering a stand-up monologue. I loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a short, funny book, so it's great on Audible. Complex literature is not well suited to the audio format.


    Have you listened to any of Ellen DeGeneres’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I hadn't listened to/read any of her previous books, but I love her TV show.


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

    Sure, that would've been great. But because I only listen to Audible books in my car, it took me about 3 days to finish it. It made me laugh even while in traffic.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Ellen or love comedy in general, you'll really enjoy the book.

  • This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike

    Story
    (175)

    To say that Augusten Burroughs has lived an unusual life is an understatement. From having no formal education past third grade and being raised by his mother’s psychiatrist in the seventies to enjoying one of the most successful advertising careers of the eighties to experiencing a spectacular downfall and rehab stint in the nineties to having a number one bestselling writing career in the new millennium, Burroughs has faced humiliation, transformation and everything in between.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes; maybe to a person who feels unlucky in love or who has recently lost a close relative. Bear in mind, this is not exactly a self-help book. It's an essay, it's actual literature, written to resemble a self-help book.
    Some passages are laugh-out-loud funny, some are inspirational. Some parts are very touching and actually made me cry.


    What other book might you compare This Is How to and why?

    Dry, by the same author.


    Have you listened to any of Augusten Burroughs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have read his other books (I especially love Sellevision) but had never heard his voice before.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    If you're not aware of the context, you might believe something terrible happened, when it really wasn't that bad.

  • I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me

    Story
    (152)

    Joan Rivers is a groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess. She’s also opinionated - especially when it comes to people she hates. Like people who think giving birth is a unique achievement. Or well-adjusted - a.k.a. boring - ex-child stars who don’t even have a decent addiction. With all of her diverse experiences, it stands to reason that Joan has seen, done, said, and heard a lot of hateful things. Thank god, she took notes.

    Where does I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not actually a strory... it's Joan Rivers mentioning everything she hates, which is hilarious.


    Have you listened to any of Joan Rivers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've seen her on TV, of course, but I'd never listened to her reading an audiobook. I love her accent.


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    You don't need to be a fan of Joan's to enjoy the book, but it's important to know that this is by no means a politically correct essay and might offend some people. Also, you would need to be immersed in pop culture and also be familiar with celebrities from past decades to fully appreciate the humor.
