I could *barely* get through this author's 1st book, I don't know why I thought the 2nd would be any better. Simply put- this "humor" book isn't funny. The essays were long and tedious and while some were better than others, mostly I kept waiting for the funny parts- but they never came. This book should be called "I'm Going to Tell You a Long, Boring Story That Has No Point- And Then I'm Going to do it Eight More Times".
There should be a star rating for "it was alright".
If you're looking for funny essays try Celia Rivenbark, Jancee Dunn, Chelsea Handler or any of Jen Lancaster's memoirs.

I couldn't finish this one. I thought her first book (I Was Told There'd Be Cake) was much more entertaining.
