This seemed like it would be right up my alley, as I am a fan of humor, memoirs, and everything this book is supposed to be. It tries for hilarious and relatable, but kind of falls short and ends up being crass and shallow. There are some funny parts, but the book is not laugh-out-loud, per se. I wouldn't read it again, nor would it be on the list of comedic memoirs that I recommend to anybody.
This is the funniest book I've ever read. I carried it around with me daily as I ran errands, and I read it nearly everwhere. People kept giving me weird looks as I couldn't help but laugh out loud while reading this book. I loved that each chapter was a story that stood alone, so I didn't have to remember where I was in the overall story. Chelsea Handler is vulgar, blunt, and hilarious. I'd recommend this book for adults college age through thirtysomething. I'm fortysomething, so if you're older and think you can handle it... GO FOR IT!
I read this book on an airplane from Atlanta, GA to Moline,IL. I bet my seatmate hated me because she was trying to sleep while I was laughing my butt off. I loved this book. Even if you are not a fan of hers, you will have a hard time keeping a straight face. With her bawdy sense of humor and her total commitment to telling on herself, Chelsea is one of the funniest comediennes in America today.
My Rating: A+
This is all at once and excellent, quick and outrageously hilarious read. I caught Chelsea on E! and found her to be crazy and in your face. I had to read any book she authored.
If you are looking for something that is well written, dirty and intelligent this book is great for you. At no point will you feel as if a moral is being thrust on you disguised in hilarity, this is just plain hilarity. Great for anyone looking for an upper, or a reminder that their father really isn't all that bad.
I highly recommend it!!
I love this book and all of Chelsea Handlers books! She is straightforward and SOOOO funny! This book is about her family and you will laugh at every page!
