This is a very quick read as the book is small, the type is large, and the book even contains comics/cartoons that relate to the story being told. The messages are short along with the explanations. It is funny, but a bit to short and I would have carried out the stories a bit more besides the message and my thought.

This was a quick easy read. HILARIOUS and makes me glad my mother doesn't call me like this. My favorite one was telling her to wear a helmet on the off chance she got hit by falling debris. Huh?

VERY funny book - transcriptions of messages left on Amy's answering machine by her mother. Says a great deal about both her mother and herself.

Funny and charming! These are the real life answering machine messages left by Amy's very overprotective mother who frets constantly about her daughter's health, love life, and well-being. The messages are comical. For example, Mom warns Amy about wearing certain colors while she's walking down the hallway to throw her trash in the trash chute because she could be mistaken for a gangster. She tries valiantly to make sure Amy is aware of every possible danger out there in the world no matter how remote the possibility that said danger would affect her daughter. I enjoyed this book so much I don't think I can part with it.

This was a really cute book...not sure if I should laugh at the mom (being an overprotective one myself), or feel sorry for Amy!

Cute, humourous, (and often true!) Amy's Answering Machine Messages from mom is a collection of messages left to Amy from her mom. If you're a daughter, you've gotten a few of these. Likewise, if you're a mom, you've probably left ALL of these at least once!

I have the audio CD of this book and it is a laugh-out-loud funny listen! My mom died when I was a teenager...what I would give to have voice mails from her! Will post soon. I'm listening to it again.
