Jenny Lawson opened herself to us and proudly displayed the things that most people will spend a lifetime trying to forget. She embraced her wonky upbringing and her oddities and 'normal' ways wearing them like a badge of honor.
Absolutely, I feel as though she has a lot of great stories to tell.
The way that she tells her personal experiences and journey is something that could not be matched if it were just read.
Absolutely, I did not want to stop listening to this book. It keeps you on your toes as Peter bounces from the past to the present and narrates the story of his life and the actions that have brought him to his current point. Bazell's words with Petkoff's narration is truly a winning combination.
I don't think it would be justifiable to say anyone other than Peter would be my favorite, he is not only the narrator but the central point in this entire story. He starts as just some MD on his way to work but from there the story rapidly changes and we are thrown into an alternate world and alternate life that come back to haunt Dr. Brown.
Petkoff has been able to bring to life the personalities of the characters and deals a fair hand when it comes to accents as well.
Laughing for sure and cringing at times, but mostly on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next.
I personally have not read the print edition; this was certainly one area that detracted for me because Fey mentions referencing the .pdf to get the gist. For me this was impossible, I listened to this while commuting and there was no way that I could access a .pdf while in transit.
There were certainly moments of out loud laughter, and I didn't even mind the strange looks people were giving me while sitting at a light or in the long line of traffic.
Fey did a great job taking some of the most obnoxious and hurtful things people could say as criticism and turns it into a fantastic little bit that shines a new laughable light on them. Overall, it was a good light listen for the commuting which can be a nightmare at times.
