Before I picked up this book I had never heard of Jenny Lawson aka The Bloggess before.I saw it around GR and every single time I looked at the cover (and title) I immediately thought "I must read it, it seems to be hilarious!!!".
And well, it is indeed such a fun and WEIRD ride!! Just by the names of the chapters you'll think it's funny, chapters like "I was a Three-Year-Old Arsonist" or "My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking" or even "Thanks for the Zombies,Jesus".
Well, in fact I enjoyed much more the childhood situations, especially some of the scenes with her father
"The Dangerous Thesaurus of My Father." An abridged version:
That have gems like...
"It's very excited."= "It has rabies"
"It likes you!" = "This wild boar is now your responsibility."
"Now, this is really interesting." = "You'll still have nightmares about this when you're thirty."
"Don't scream or you'll scare it." = "You should really be running now."
It's disturbing and priceless! Seriously!
But many chapters seemed bit forced or just not amused me that much. I don't know, I'm all for embrace the weirdness but sometimes were a bit over the top,imo.
Overall I enjoy it and have some good laughs with it.
