Publisher's Summary

One of AudioFile Magazine's Best Audiobooks of 2016.

The highly anticipated first audiobook from award-winning comedian, writer, producer and actress, Amy Schumer.

In The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy shares stories about her family, her relationships, her career, good - and bad - sex, recounting the experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (and boys) to becoming one of the most sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women's rights.

Whether she's experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport, discovering her boot camp instructor's secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father's multiple sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining storyteller. Her audiobook will move you, make you laugh, catch you completely off guard, and answer this burning question: is it okay for a 35 year-old woman to still sleep with her childhood teddy bears?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

She is better live

Most of this same out sad and dry to my ears. I did enjoy the stories and she makes some very fine points on growing up and making the normal human decisions that shape us into who we are.

At first i thought it was funny

At first, I thought this is one funny book with silly stories; then soon became to dislike it and found it painful listening to.

Amy reads the whole book in a monotone voice and I soon became to realise that nothing is her fault, throughout the book, everything that has happened is someone else's fault and she reveals her families secrets and stories of personal times.

For me, I wouldn't recommend, Kevin Harts book however is hilarious.

OK but not much really happens or happened.

i love Amy's comedy, raw, biting and chellenging. my presumption was that there must be a real backstory that moulded this talented woman. The book is OK, nothing very exciting or shocking, honest but uneventful. slightly lacking in style but as a novice author that is forgivable. its an easy listen but its bland rather than bold.

End already

had hoped this would actually be funny and interesting.. in the end I just got so tired of it, out of sheer pig headedness, I had to persevere to make it to the end of the book.. trite drivel..

Very disappointing

Would you try another book written by Amy Schumer or narrated by Amy Schumer?

No

Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

No

What aspect of Amy Schumer’s performance might you have changed?

The book needs changing rather than her performance which was ok

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I was a huge fan of Trainwreck and persuaded lots of friends to see it, but this must be the least funny book by a comic I've read. Maybe Amy's intention was not to be funny but if so the book's marlketing is at fault as is the jokey title - a pun on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amy makes some worthwhile points about the poor messages given to young girls by the media, about sexism on the standup circuit (and business generally) and about gun control. However overall the book is just dull and full of pointless lists - for example in a list of Things I Hate Amy lists the Big Bang Theory (the TV show not the theory but apparently can't be bothered to give us a reason for the hatred.

Any additional comments?

No

A bit overly long for the content...

I didnt really know much about Amy Schumer before this book, so this was my introduction. Amy comes across as a nice person, and I feel I know her more as a human now, she's a good one it seems. That said, the book itself came over like a fireside chat, spoken broadly in monotone and at times trying just too hard to be edgy simply by excessive references to bodily functions, sex and other shock tactics. About 2/3 of the way through I lost interest and only finished listening because I didn't want to leave it part read. I feel this was a book someone told her to write because that's what her agent thinks she should do. This is not a book I see myself going back to again, but im sure Amy fans may hang on every word. your mileage may vary...

So much more than a good laugh

I love how Schumer is able to brilliantly balance the combination of important subjects with a serious undertone together with great comedy and wit. Not many comedians or writers are able to do so, and that is why I highly recommend you to listen to this audiobook.

Great read!!

OMG, I was not expecting that! This is such an honest, authentic and funny book. So easy to read/listen and there is something about having an author read their own book. Amy is funny but in such a beautiful way. I truly enjoyed this book and it is so relatable in so many ways.

Highly recommend, you won't regret it.

Good, not great

Pretty good, had me laughing at points! but I wish she had injected a bit more of her personality into her voice and how she read it! was almost like she was reading it off the page, rather than telling her story

Amy Schumer

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. I had laugh out loud moments and a couple of teary moments in this book. I love Amy and it was great to learn about her family and life growing up.
I was disappointed when it ended!

Absolutely phenomenal

I am in awe of Amy Schumer after listening to this book. Emotional, raw, funny, honest and reap is everything I would use to describe this.
What I thought I was going to get (funny stories) vs what I did get (humanly honest stories about her life and an unedited authentic and raw recount of her life) had me hooked from the first word.
She is so incredibly relatable that I have become a massive fan, because, well.. who else has the balls to tell these kinds of stories and still laugh at themselves?
I have no doubt her and I would be besties if we met!
If you only buy one book this year, it needs to be The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer. 5 freaking incredibly amazing stars!

Painful

I love Amy's standup and show. But this book is painfully boring.
This will be the first audiobook that I ask a refund for.

I wouldn't recommend bothering

Really struggled with this. Its not necessarily bad but its very poorly written and she's unfortunately very boring to listen to.
