Another collection of the hilarious and ridiculous antics in the life of Chelsea Handler. This time she tells the story of her discovery of the joy of masturbation and finding out who the dumbest person on her staff is. And, her family, especially her father, rarely get portrayed in a good light.
This is definitely not a book to read in public, unless you like have people stare at you as you laugh hysterically. I found it to be a quick and fun read. Ms Handler's books are great for those times when you need something to make you smile and even if you don't.
It's definitely got adult themes, and I'd be very leery of letting anyone under 16 (and maybe even 21) read it.
For some reason, I'd really hoped this one was going to be funnier than it actually was. I don't know why I thought that... If I'd actually seen any of Chelsea Handler's television show, I sure don't think I would have thought that, but something about the way I saw "blonde" and "smiling" and "brash" on the cover and I was interested enough in giving it a shot. Thank goodness for used books.
I read this one aloud to my wife over the course of a few weeks as we lazed in bed together. She enjoyed it a lot more than I did. This is a collection of essays, as might be expected, of Chelsea's various exploits. The sad thing is, her exploits basically tell the stories of a spoiled rich woman who has people to take care of her if it's needed. I never felt connected to her humor at all --- she lives in a world far removed from mine.
2 of 5 stars.
I am a huge Chelsea Handler fan - I liked this book but I didn't love it. I felt the same way about her other books.
I find her very funny. If you love Chelsea you'll love this book.
I love Chelsea and I liked this book, but it isn't my favorite. Still, worth a fun read and occasionally a cringe!
