Audie Award Nominee, Humor, 2013
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 listeners 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.
Chapters include: "Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel", "A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband", "My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking", and "And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane".

I love her books and her voice and inflection make the story great as an audiobook. my only complaint is that it wasn't longer! I didn't want it to end.
No, I think I've heard her funniest material, which is about her childhood
Edit, edit, edit. It felt like she was pushed to make her story longer.
Probably not. I found her voice annoying.
I really loved this book at first. It had me laughing out loud. But after awhile the story got whiny and I got tired of hearing how she and her husband were fighting, how she embarrassed him, and way too much about her vagina.
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
funny story glad I down loaded it so many great interesting things kept me laughing the entire time don't hasitate download it you will not regret it
All of it. I usually reward myself with an audio book when I'm doing something odious like cleaning the house. I had to sit down and just listen because I was laughing so hard I was crying and I didn't want to vacuum up my shoe laces cause that's never good.
Yes - especially if you've lived in Texas... So much of this book is relate-able (and quite a bit isn't, but whatever). Jenny's reading is great - almost like she's ad-libbing. The more serious parts are a little difficult to endure (esp. if you're empathetic), but she brings you back with other stories that lighten the mood...
The story about her dog (that died) and her interaction with her husband, neighbors and her friend, seems to blow out of control, then come back together nicely...
No, but I'm considering her next book, "Furiously Happy..."
I did actually laugh out loud at several of the passages. Mostly, they made me smile.
Wow! This girl can talk! and talk... and... well, you get it. Plus she curses a lot, but if you're prepared for it, the stories are great!
Certainly the most unusual and somewhat outrageous book, however, I was entertained!
Incomparable to any other book I've read!!
Artificially inseminating the cow.
I laughed most of the book!
