This is a great memoir by Jenny Lawson, strengthened because it is narrated by the author. About halfway through the book, I felt as though Lawson and I were sitting down for coffee and she was telling me her life story. There were points that I wondered where she was going to go with this book (would it be all light and airy?) when she introduced a harsh dose of reality - and how she dealt with it using humour.
Jenny Lawson, please make good on your promise to do 'Book 2'
Lawson is honest, raw and hilarious. Make sure you listen to the outtakes also. I love her blog, and was happy to hear the person behind it.
Yes - and I listened to it in a short time period. Funny vignettes make this easily digestible.
A great read by Lowe himself, with a compelling story and he's not afraid to talk about the tough parts of his life (rehab, etc)
Lowe changed my idea of who he is with this book - I always took him for a pretty-boy member of the brat pack, who lacked a lot of substance. His writing and reflection reveals his intelligence, wit and humour. I only downloaded this bio because others recommended it, and it was well worth it.
Hearing Lowe read his book adds another dimension - I feel like he was truly telling his most personal thoughts, and while he happily laughs at himself, Lowe feels like a friend now. (Note: I am not a deluded stalker, it was just great to hear him read his words in the phrasing he intended)
I read this book in high school and after a very disappointing experience with 50 Shades (even the sex scenes couldn't make up for the weak writing), I turned to lady Chatterley. Veronika Hyks is an intoxicating storyteller. This seductive story can't be beat.
