Publisher's Summary

"My tendency to make up stories and lie compulsively for the sake of my own amusement takes up a good portion of my day and provides me with a peace of mind not easily attainable in this economic climate."
—Chelsea Handler, from Chapter 10 of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

It's no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out "dumbassness", the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers - they've all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they've lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time, write about them.

Laugh Out Loud Funny

This book was definitely laugh out loud funny! I can't believe some of the pranks Chelsea has played on her friends. Like the book says though, if she isn't pranking you, she doesn't care about you. Knowing that, if Chelsea ever played a prank on me I can only assume I would feel honored.

I WISH Chelsea had read her own parts of the book...I think it would have been funnier to hear her take on each of the other narrator's stories directly from her.

Yuck and more yuck!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing at all. These are horrible stories about practical jokes that are way to over the top for my taste. I do think she if funny but the things she does to the people in her life are horrible and cruel and I guess that is where I draw the line of funny.

Has Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, not at all but will just be more careful in the future about reading others reviews.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, I could not even finish it. It made me want my money back for purchasing it.

Chelsea Handler lies that chelsea handler told me

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Alittle.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

If Chelsea read it herself. It sounded to scripted, and chelsea is alot funnier telling her story.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

yes

Was Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me worth the listening time?

not really
