  • 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.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"

    Overall

    I gave her first book 4 stars - it was really a fun listen.

    This one gets lower marks because it's just not quite as funny. The stories drag just a little, in places. And you can't help but feel a little sad about a few of them.

    Also, I preferred the other narrator to Chelsea herself, who narrates this. But one is no better than the other - I just liked the other girl's style.

    Other than those minor things - this book was pretty enjoyable.

    Ciccone's extraordinary memoir is based on his life and 47 years of growing up with and working with his sister - the most famous woman in the world.

    Overall

    SPOILER: He's gay and Madonna's a bitch. Surprise!!

    Still, an interesting book. His voice kind of bugged me, because it's very low pitched. But if you like celeb tell alls, it's not bad. Not depressing - it has a cool tone.

  • My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands

    You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool.

    Kathryn says: "Chelsea, You are HYSTERICAL!"
    "Hilarious, which is weird."
    Overall

    I don't love her TV show - but this book was hilarious. I plan to go back and listen to it again. The narrator seems bland at first - but it ends up working very well, because it lets the stories shine through. (Chelsea herself narrated her next book, and it made me miss this narrator.)

    I was laughing out loud at work. If you can get past the fact that she lies to people - the lies and the ensuing situations are very entertaining.
    You have to be a little bit crass and smutty to really enjoy the book though.

  • Everyone Worth Knowing: A Novel

    On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she has no idea what to do next.

    Susan says: "Agonizing"
    "Tolerable"
    Overall

    When I want chick lit, I want something that doesn't get too emotional. This book fits the bill. Entertaining enough - not my favorite chick lit, but not a bad storyline. There are a couple of lovable characters. The main girl is just like any other main character in chick lit.

    My major problem was that Eliza Dushku's narration was distracting and full of (sorry, Eliza fans) bad voice acting. I'd rather a professional voice actor narrate it, as her raspy voice got more and more distracting over time. It made it harder to follow the story - which is saying something, since it's not exactly Shakespeare.

    Still, overall, not a waste of money.

    Inspired by Catherine Hickland's own trial-and-error efforts to recover from a broken heart in a healthy and productive way, The 30-Day Heartbreak Cure is an easy-to-follow, one-day-at-a-time plan for getting yourself over him and back on your feet. All you need to do is set a deadline - one month from today - for your pain to end, and let Catherine guide you through it.

    Overall

    If you are going through a break up, get the Greg Behrendt book, "It's Called a Break-up Because It's Broken." I know, you are suspicious of that book. And if you already have it - listen to it again instead of buying this book.

    This one is full of bitter fluff. She is a little harsh, and really it's a very self-serving book. The author idolizes Dr. Phil, which makes sense in light of her advice. In her 30 Day solution - she gives you the first 3 days to cry. She uses trite advice like "To belittle is to be little." I got very little out of it, and actually had to fight believing some of the bad and unsettling advice she gave.
