I would only recommend this book to a friend I didn't care for. Seriously. I don't understand all the hoo-hah about this book (seriously). Is it supposed to be some 'deep thinkers' novel and I totally missed it, like the story itself has some undercurrent of meaning that has just escaped my notice? It sounded just like a regular old Harlequin Romance novel to me (though more LORNO (light porno) than the ones I remember reading as a teenager) -really not something I'd (ever) listen to again, in fact I couldn't even finish it. It sounds like something from the writers at Hustler Magazine, almost like a man writing about a fantasy (but not very well). I was disappointed, to say the least, hate paying for something I'll never listen to again (what a waste) and can't even think about lending it to anyone, I'd be too embarrased to have anyone think I was recommending it. Yuck. Only bought it because "everyone" was getting it, talking about it, etc. (and yes I get the irony, and no I wouldn't jump off a bridge if everyone was jumping off a bridge).....my mom always said that to me and I guess I never learn) The author and/or the publicist did a SPECTACULAR job of getting the book mentioned on t.v. and in magazines (heard about it 2-3 times on t.v. and read about it several times in different magazines) and good job tricking us into wasting our money. Darn. Hated it (and I love to read and can ready anything, seriously-this really blew). Boo.
Don't think so.
Reader was okay just hated the book itself. It was porn advertised as....I don't even know what -the "best new novel in forever", somehow (again: great publicist) making me feel I HAD to have it. I totally feel like I was intentionally tricked (for lack of a better word) into buying it.
Yuck. And first (and last) time I jump on the "everybody's doing it" book band.
He is so dry, droll and it ends up just funny! Some of it might offend someone who is . . .delicate? Or someone who takes what he is saying "too literally"? IT'S JOKES, whether or not you agree with what he is saying----if we were all the same and all had the same thoughts NO ONE would be funny - - we'd all just be the same. It's comedy. And hil-ar-i-ous. Seriously.
Loved it all. What did I like least? (can I not even wait to see if this is a question?) It was way too short, and since I wanted to hear more I came back to audible but this is currently the only Louis CK thing available (!). Bummer.
Not really a story, question N/A
I'm not funny like this book is so you'd have to check w/Louis C.K. for the tag line.
Funnnnnny. Funny. I usually never leave comments (only if I've really hated something, e.g., Shades of Grey or whatever that $&*^ stupid book is called, I got tricked into thinking it was a great new book - HA - PORN (actually LORN, light porn) is more like it, and I'm not stodgy, just discerning and that was a HORRIBLE book I couldn't get through 10 minutes, ick--that was the only review I've ever left and I've bought 100's of books from audible, like over 300 (don't tell my husband ha ha)) but I just wanted to say: this is TOTALLY worth listening to, albeit it's way too short, but FUNNNNY.
Yes it's very funny (and a little sad at times) but I was very drawn into her world and in fact many of the things she did and said resonated with me - as in - I've had some of those same thoughts and it was comforting to hear her talk about them with humor -very witty and fast.
It'd have to be between the squirrel puppet and........no just kidding - Jenny is the main character and she is super funny, her husband is a great sounding board and her editor works hard to keep her grounded. Her dad sounds great, too, I'd take any dead animal to him without reservation.
Yes and when it was finished I started it over (I'm on the 3rd listening now, a very rare thing for me to do, actually).
This was a very funny, wacky and interesting book - I liked her cadence and thought she sounded perfect, she speaks with a fast cadence which perfectly fits her "stories" and her personality - I hadn't heard of her until this book but I'm a fan. Not a facebook fan, I hate facebook. But liked her book and I'd buy another if she wrote/writes one.
