This book made me laugh like an idiot. Usually I read in bed to relax before sleep, but this had the opposite effect, as I couldn't stop laughing while reading it. Then it takes a veer into very sad territory, but back again to awesome. I started laughing so hard one night, and tried to suppress it so my husband wasn't disturbed. Big mistake. The bed was shaking so hard from my silent chuckles that he thought an earthquake had just hit Portland. Seriously. I love Jenny Lawson with my whole heart.

Sometimes I just need to laugh. I read a few reviews of this book and figured it might allow me to do so. Did it ever! Jenny's writing is crisp, chatty, and communicates as if she's sharing with you on the phone or over coffee at her kitchen table. Her early years were unique yet years many of us can relate to as well (those who were shy, shunned, teased). Experiences with a taxidermist father and tolerant mother are peculiar yet there is a lot of love there. Her difficulties with personal issues were turned into insightful and often LOL stories. It's amazing to me always to read of the lives of those who rose above difficulties with a laugh. For those with sensitivity to some raunchiness, well... be prepared. The only complaint - I read it too quickly!

Delightfully vulgar and possibly schizoaffective. That's how I would describe Jenny Lawson. She is that awkward, inappropriate friend that we all have and love too much to alienate. This is what makes her "memoir" absolutely hilarious. She describes her life in a way we all can somehow relate (metaphorically, of course, as I doubt anyone else has been stabbed by a chicken). Her reactions to life make you fall in love because you realize you aren't as crazy as some other people. This is an absolute must read for anyone needing a good laugh or a life-affirming moment.

If you are of a delicate nature, easily offended, or terrified of squirrels, run far far away from this book. If, on the other hand, you enjoy snarky, bizarrish humor, this is the one for you. Jenny Lawson is hilarious.

This book has everything you will ever need to know about aquatic squirrels by one of the country's leading experts. Funny from cover to cover, with enough touching stories to make you feel quilty for laughing at times.

"Review" by , "Even when I was funny, I wasn't this funny."
"Review" by , "The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud, but you know that really you shouldn't be laughing and probably you'll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn't read it. That would be safer and wiser."
"Review" by , "Jenny Lawson is hilarious, snarky, witty, totally inappropriate, and 'Like Mother Teresa, Only Better.'"
"Review" by , "Jenny Lawson's writing is nothing less than revolutionary...I say this without a hint of exaggeration: She may be one of the most progressive women's voices of our time."
"Review" by , "There's something wrong with Jenny Lawson — magnificently wrong. I defy you to read her work and not hurt yourself laughing."
