Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development; Or, Why It'sNever Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner | [Jen Lancaster]

Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development; Or, Why It'sNever Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner

In Such a Pretty Fat, Jen Lancaster learned how to come to terms with her body. In My Fair Lazy, she expanded her mind. Now, the New York Times best-selling author gives herself - and her generation - a kick in the X, by facing her greatest challenge to date: acting her age. Jen is finally ready to put away childish things (except her Barbie Styling Head, of course) and embrace the investment-making, mortgage-carrying, life insurance-having adult she's become.

Publisher's Summary

In Such a Pretty Fat, Jen Lancaster learned how to come to terms with her body. In My Fair Lazy, she expanded her mind. Now, the New York Times best-selling author gives herself - and her generation - a kick in the X, by facing her greatest challenge to date: acting her age.

Jen is finally ready to put away childish things (except her Barbie Styling Head, of course) and embrace the investment-making, mortgage-carrying, life insurance-having adult she's become.

From getting a mammogram to volunteering at a halfway house, she tackles the grown-up activities she's resisted for years, and with each rite of passage she completes, she'll uncover a valuable - and probably humiliating - life lesson that will ease her path to full-fledged, if reluctant, adult.

    "Made me laugh"

    After reading YA and other items, this was the perfect "adult" book to get me back into more grown-up themes. The book was funny but truthful at the same time.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a quasi-humorous book by an author who seems to really have nothing much to say other than to continually remind the reader/listener that while she used to be poor, she is now very successful. So, we are told about how she gets to go all over the country on her book tour, how she lives in an expensive house in the woods with rich neighbors down the street, about her estate planning problems, and on and on. Frankly, it was all very self-congratulatory and off putting. And... not particularly funny.

    "Great way to Spend the Afternoon!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I loved this book and laughed out loud many different times!! I was not familiar with jen's work before listening to this book and look forward to listening to more of her work in the near future!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jeneration X?

    Oh my gosh... hard to choose! She is so honest and straight forward- that is what love most! But I guess if I had to pick a moment, one of my favorites would have been the little letter she wrote to curry... or when she got her hair done in texas... or when she talked about fletch re-doing her dresser... or...


    Any additional comments?

    i've noticed that she doesn't always read her own work... bummer!! she was a fantastic narrator and i really enjoyed listening to her tell all of her own stories!

    "Consistent Jen Lancaster"

    If you like Jen Lancaster's other works, you'll definitely like this one. The only difference, Jen actually narrates this novel. I felt she did not do as well narrating the book as well as prior narrators. However, the storyline still kept me interested and I couldn't wait to get into my car to listen to.

    "AMAZING AS ALWAYS!!"
    If you could sum up Jeneration X in three words, what would they be?

    PEE PANTS FUNNY!


    What does Jen Lancaster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    LISTENING TO THE AUDIO BOOK GIVES THE WHOLE THING A MUCH MORE PERSONAL FEEL. ITS SO EASY TO GET LOST IN THE STORIES AND FEEL LIKE YOU ARE JUST SITTING BACK LISTENING TO YOUR BEST FRIEND. JEN IS AN EXTRODINARY STORY TELLER!


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

    I LAUGHED, I CRIED, I PEED MY PANTS.....


    Any additional comments?

    I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF JEN'S FOR A LONG TIME. SHE IS AMAZINGLY FUNNY AND DOWN TO EARTH. I HAVE NEVER MET HER, BUT FEEL LIKE WE HAVE BEEN BESTEST OF FRIENDS SINCE CHILDHOOD. READ ALL OF HER BOOKS, YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

    "Another great read/listen from Jen!"
    Would you listen to Jeneration X again? Why?

    Absolutely! First of all, because its hilarious. Second, because I have followed Jan Lancaster through her blogging and books for upwards of 6years now and it feels like she's talking to me. Third, did I mention its hilarious?!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Its a tie between Jen and Libby.

    "Laugh-out-loud funny!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Jeneration X to be better than the print version?

    Yes, hearing it in the author's voice made it even better than reading it -- she is hilarious!


    Any additional comments?

    Hysterical!! I listen while I drive and continually laughed out loud -- made the drives fly by!
