it's wonderful. I hope they write another book!

It is a wonderful book. it takes a minute to get used to the different feel, but then it's so nice hearing these heartfelt stories told by two of your favorite people (and Paul Giamatti). oh and a cameo by Marty! 😄 I definitely cried more than once. I'll be listening many times for sure! SSDGM

I cried most of the way through but in a good way

Upfront I’ve gotta say: if you don’t love Karen and Georgia or their podcast or their accents then this isn’t for you. (I mean you should think about that because they’re objectively wonderful but that’s between you and your therapist).

I loved the references to their famous quotes, and how their anecdotes linked so cleverly to each chapter. I love that some of the parts are recorded from live readings, the audience being there feels a bit like the live show podcast episodes and I love it.

I respect their vulnerability, honesty and ability to share the sides of themselves that don’t make them look good. But sharing those things actually makes me know they are GREAT because they’ve put vanity aside so that we can all relate and feel better about the shitty parts of ourselves.

Anyway. I bought it yesterday and have listened twice so what more can I say?

loved loved loved it!

I'm sad it's over, I loved it so much. It felt I was with my friends, listening to their stories...just like their podcast. The book was insightful, delightful and so relatable. I hope there will be a second book. I love you Karen & Georgia! You have no idea what a difference your podcast & book has made to my life!

Nothing new here

You won't really learn anything new from this book, I was hoping for more memoir and less self help. It's fine, it's pretty much just what you get on the podcast and stories you've already heard.

Amazing

I never knew I could feel like I was a part of something so amazing, although I live in South Africa and it seems so far away I feel a deep connection with Karen and Georgia and all the wonderful murderinos! THANK you for your honesty and your vulnerability with the deeply personal things that sometimes seem to be too scary to share! You guys are amazing

This book is everything!

Karen and Georgia have created a space in which mental health, fascinations with the macabre, being vulnerable and making mistakes are all okay, and are bringing more people to the table to show who they are and what they stand for. I’m so proud to be part of this incredible community of listeners, and the book reflects what they stand for entirely.

Brave, beautiful, funny, emotional, and unashamedly themselves. Thank you Karen and Georgia for sharing your vulnerability with us and for giving us an insight into your own experiences; leading the way to show other badass women that you can do anything you put your mind to!

Bravo ladies, bravo!

Loved this booked. Listened to it in 1 day. You've both written something funny, personal, entertaining and special. Which, no pressure, is exactly what we've all come to expect from your general brilliance. Thank you

Exactly right

Genuine, hilarious, nostalgic and deeply relatable, this audiobook was a perfect listen and a must for any listeners of MFM. Georgia and Karen reading their parts of the book themselves made this audiobook extra special due to the personal and vulnerable topics covered. Karen’s witty play-by-play of a typical latchkey kid afternoon made me laugh and talking about her mother and dementia made me cry and call my mum just to say hi.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant

This riveting, superb ride through Georgia and Karen’s lives and the lessons they’ve learned is just WONDERFUL.

I had to pause it so I could try to stop crying while driving. I woke my partner up laughing. When it finished, I considered just starting it over again to see what I’d missed in all the moments I was busy howling ‘yes!!’.

As amazing as the podcast

Being an avid ‘murderino’ I was partly worried the voices would sound the same k&g reading out ads, or that there was nothing new to add.
I was wrong though on all counts! Great narration and story.
Stay sexy and listen to this book!

My Favorite Autobiography

I'm going to be honest here - I haven't finished this book. I'm only up to chapter 13. I had to stop for today to go to work, and it might be the greatest tragedy of our times.

Having been an avid MFM listener for the past 6 months, I was thrilled when they announced they were releasing a book. I expected it to be a bit whacky, super hilarious, and an enjoyable read - I didn't expect it to be one of the most relatable books I've ever read/listened to. I've almost cried/definitely cried at least 15 times so far (okay, more like 100) and so many of the stories and experiences Georgia and Karen have woven into this book have tugged at the parts of my soul I was convinced no one else shared.

If you have no interest in true crime, you will still enjoy this book. If you have no idea what MFM is, you might miss some in jokes, but you will still enjoy this book. If you want some fantastic writing about depression, anxiety, alcoholism, therapy, friendship and more - you will DEFINITELY enjoy this book.

Anyway, buy this book. I'm definitely buying a physical copy as soon as I finish the audible one. I'm going to recommend it to everyone I talk to for the rest of time. And I'm going to enjoy my long ass commute home because I have something amazing to listen to on the way back.
