From mourning the finale of a beloved television series to accidentally attending a pole dancing class intended for professional strippers, this collection captures life's absurdities through the perspective of an everywoman. Alena Dillon invites listeners to laugh along with her as she reflects on universal experiences including diet frustration (the devil is in the Doritos), as well as situations uniquely Dillon's own, such as pounding on the side of a moving Mister Softee truck. Her widely recognizable stories of love, rejection, body image, snarky baristas, bargain hunting, ill-timed snorting, and, of course, public urination, will leave you reeling.
If I had listened to a sample I may not have purchased this book. The audio quality is very poor and the narrator is still coming into her own. She could have been a little less formal but I think she has potential. I'm guessing that this was done on a low budget and you get used to the audio.
The essays are very funny and I like her cute wordplay. It made me laugh out loud and I finished the book in one day. Overall, the author & narrator will both benefit from experience, but I would gladly listen to a second book!
