From comedian Anita Renfroe, already beloved by women's groups and YouTube viewers across America, comes this hilarious and brazenly honest look at motherhood and middle age. Famous for her live performance of the "Mom Song," which barrels through everything a mom says to her kids in a single day to the tune of the "William Tell Overture" (just two minutes and fifty-five seconds), in Don't Say I Didn't Warn You, Renfroe now turns her irreverent and daringly accurate comic eye to other female conditions. In chapters with names like "Brother, Can You Spare an Epidural?" and "Playing Favorites (Or, As a Matter of Fact, I Do Love Your Brother More)," she dares to speak what other women are thinking - but don't say out loud. Using wit and honesty as her weapons of choice, Renfroe shares her deeply funny and relatable takes on everything from weddings to mammograms to every woman's never-ending quest for just one good photo of herself. The world is a bounty of material for Renfroe; with it, she makes a feast of laughter for us all. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Would you listen to Don't Say I Didn't Warn You again? Why?
Yes, it is an uplifting and enjoyable book, one that you could listen to multiple times and still laugh with Anita.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Not a character reading... More of a stand up act by Anita.
What does Anita Renfroe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
If you haven't seen Anita perform then you would miss the emotion she adds with her voice. If you have seen her, then her writing is good enough that you can get what she is writing and perhaps still hear her enthusiasm.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I did laugh out loud a few times when she touched on things that I have experienced with humor.
Any additional comments?
Good book. I like it when I am driving. You will miss some things, but will hear them the next time you tune it up... makes the time go fast.
