  • Man Up!: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence

    As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.

    What did you love best about Man Up!?

    I loved listening to Ross read his own book, it was so much fun to listen to this book while on walks and traveling, i would find myself laughing out loud while on the plane.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how upbeat and positive Ross was, he was also really funny and bubbly.He was also so sweet when it came to encouraging his fans/readers to go after their dreams and be comfortable with how they are.


    Have you listened to any of Ross Mathews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only heard him from Chelsea and a few times on Jay Leno where my whole family feel in love with him. We don't even like Jay Leno but would always watch it to see Ross. I've enjoyed all of his performances but the book was great because it felt so personal and sincere


    Any additional comments?

    Great book if you are looking for something positive, funny, and just happy go lucky

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    What made the experience of listening to How to Be a Woman the most enjoyable?

    When i bought this book i had no idea it was book on feminism, but i am glad i continued with the book because she made excellent points about feminism and made it current and rel-eatable to women of this time. i never felt like she was preachy or trying to force her view on me, also she never bashed men or came off as a man hater.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The auother was my favorite i enjoyed listening to her opinion and her life stories


    What about Caitlin Moran’s performance did you like?

    I loved her performance she was very engaging like you were sitting with her in her house having a chat.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. i go on long walk 2 hours at a time and every time my walk ended i wasnt ready to stop listening to the audiobook

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the dialog between the authors current self and eighteen year old self. As well as the dialog between her and her dog Peggy.


    What about Miranda Hart’s performance did you like?

    I loved everything about it she was energetic and it felt you where on a lunch date with her having a conversation.


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

    This book made me laugh out loud multiple times.

    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!"

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was excited to listen to this book while i was exercising but i just couldn't stand the main character, i was hoping she was going to be a smart and strong female but alas she is not. The scene that finally killed the book for me was when (*Spoiler*) she gets into an violent confrontation with her father and tries to defend him and justify that it was alright for him to beat her because she is a shitty daughter (WTF?!) it just rubbed me the wrong way. i will try to finish this book but i wont be listening to the other two in the series. Once again my search for the modern Black Agnes continues.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Diana Rowland again?

    No


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None.


    What character would you cut from My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    The main charachter
