    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.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to a friend because I did not find it funny. In general, I like Chelsea Handler and I usually find her to be quite funny. This book disappointed me. There were some funny parts of the book but, in general, this book was not funny. Chelsea Handler narrated it herself and it was often difficult to tell if she was being sarcastic or not. Having a basic knowledge of Chelsea's humor, I realize that she relies on sarcasm quite heavily but it was difficult to determine definitively when she was being sarcastic in this book. Even if every questionable passage was intended sarcastically, it simply wasn't funny. If there were passages that were not intended as sarcasm, then Chelsea has some serious issues and she should consult a therapist. In general, I would advise all but the most ardent Chelsea Handler fans to pass on this audiobook.


    Do you think Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Please, no.

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination.

    Would you listen to This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage again? Why?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this short story! It is written by a woman who has the courage to reject what society tells women they must do (i.e. get married, have children). Yet this story is not told in an angry or strident tone; rather, it is told with quiet confidence. I enjoyed this audiobook even more knowing that it is a true story and that the narrator was telling her own story (as she is also the author). I highly recommend it!

    1972. The Munich Olympics. Palestinian members of the Black September group murder 11 Israeli athletes. Nine hundred million people watch the crisis unfold on television, witnessing a tragedy that inaugurates the modern age of terror.

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

    I liked this book and I learned a lot about the Munich massacre from this book (I was alive but very young when the actual event occurred). I found the first part of the book to be more captivating than the last two-thirds. The latter part of the book was not bad by any means, just not as engrossing as the first part of the book which dealt with the actual hostage-taking of the Olympic athletes and their subsequent deaths. I will reiterate and validate what other reviewers have said: the book is slightly dry and the narration, while good, can be a bit monotone. I also had some difficulty keeping track of all of the many secondary characters due to their similar-sounding names. Granted, I am from the U.S. so Palestinian names can be confusing to me.That being said, this is a very informative book and one I thoroughly enjoyed. I would recommend it to anybody who enjoys history and doesn't need said history to be made more palatable by being packaged in novel form.

  • Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Stories I Only Tell My Friends the most enjoyable?

    My expectation of this autobiography was that it would be good, but not great. Boy, was I surprised! Rob Lowe has written a honest and intelligent memoir that I could not put down. He does a terrific job of being candid regarding his own life's adventures and misadventures without being narcissistic. He candidly writes about the people that have come in and out of his life without namedropping or doing any mudslinging. I confess that I thought that Rob Lowe was of only average intelligence prior to reading (hearing) this book, probably due to his "pretty boy" looks. After reading this book I have now reassessed my opinion and conclude that not only is Rob Lowe very intelligent, he has acquired a lot of personal insight and wisdom over the course of his life. In general, I gained a lot of respect for Rob Lowe after reading his book. He has had a very eventful life, but ultimately his life journey mirrors those led by most of us regular people. We make mistakes when young but we learn from those mistakes and we make better choices as we age. Hopefully we eventually become mature adults who put our priorities in the proper order and by doing so we find a deeper and more meaningful happiness than our youthful indiscretions brought us. Lest the above comments make this book sound philosophical and dry, trust me - it isn't! This book is fun, entertaining, and interesting. It was made even better by the author's terrific narration. If you are even slightly considering buying this book I urge you to do it. You won't regret it.
