I love reading about families that are quirkier than mine.

By far the funniest and laugh out loud book about life I have ever read.

Jenny's humour is off the wall at times and just plain funny mostly. I never laughed out loud as much as I did while reading this book!

The funniest book I have ever. read. Ever. (Salty, snarky and a bit off - three of my favorites!)

I couldn't get past the first chapter. Not my kind of humor. Rather corny.

I would give this book 4.5 stars because it was absolutely hilarious in some parts, like actually laughing out loud because of how ludicrous these situations or conversations were. There were a few stories where the humor seemed a bit tired and repetitive, but for the majority of it I was laughing or at least smiling while reading. I loved her writing in that it is one big ramble, and completely uncensored and at times unedited on purpose, which just makes it feel more real and like you are actually having a conversation with her and she is telling you these stories. Highly recommended for a good, not always clean, laugh.

I laughed so hard reading this that my husband started reading it over my shoulder.

"With a sense of humour that ranges from irreverent to sarcastic to downright weird, this illustrated memoir isn't for everyone -- a sense of the ridiculous and an acceptance of bodily fluids making appearances at inappropriate times are a must for maximum enjoyment. Those who can accept and appreciate an exaggerated storytelling style and the occasional taxidermied animal will relish blogger Jenny Lawson's recollections of her childhood, her marriage, and her escapades dealing with anxiety disorders and her job in HR."

Couldn't put the book down for a second and used every opportunity I had to read it. Hysterical yet offensive to so many degrees... I LOVED it!

Let me preface this by saying that my dad was always bringing home crazy-ass shit. Rabbit skulls, rocks shaped like vegetables, angry possums, glass eyes, strange drifters he picked up on the road, a live porcupine in a rubber tire.
