Ellen doesn't just read the paragraphs.... it's more like she's acting or delivering a stand-up monologue. I loved it.
It's a short, funny book, so it's great on Audible. Complex literature is not well suited to the audio format.
I hadn't listened to/read any of her previous books, but I love her TV show.
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.
If you like Ellen or love comedy in general, you'll really enjoy the book.
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.
Dry, by the same author.
I have read his other books (I especially love Sellevision) but had never heard his voice before.
If you're not aware of the context, you might believe something terrible happened, when it really wasn't that bad.
One of my favorites.
It's not actually a strory... it's Joan Rivers mentioning everything she hates, which is hilarious.
I've seen her on TV, of course, but I'd never listened to her reading an audiobook. I love her accent.
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.
