    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "Hilarious and Honest"

    What made the experience of listening to Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) the most enjoyable?

    Jenny was true to her self and her story. She was the only person who could have done this book justice. Walking in her shoes had to be hard, and laughing at life was her coping mechanism, and she shares it beautifully.


    What other book might you compare Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) to and why?

    Honestly, this title stands alone.


    What does Jenny Lawson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing her tell the story, and actually talking to the audio book listener made it more personal of a reading experience.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My wife and I listened to this book together, and we both laughed and cried.


    Any additional comments?

    Some strong language, and if the word vagina scares you, pick something else.

    Story
    (133)

    When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford's fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a cruel, new anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack avenges their murders by gunning down the then-unarmed attackers, ultimately getting himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy. To make matters worse, Mack then learns that the Diamondhead missiles were sold illegally by French industrialist and infamous politician Henri Foche.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Disastrous Departure of Style and Genre"
    "Not his best by a long shot"
    Overall

    Diamondhead is a missle that fizzles. The characters are shallow, the women are weak and whiny, and the plot was very predictible.
