Light Humor

Somehow, I felt totally inappropriate, and perhaps immature, enjoying this book as much as I did, but I did, and I might not let too many people other than you know how much I enjoyed it!

Somehow, I felt totally inappropriate, and perhaps immature, enjoying this book as much as I did, but I did, and I might not let too many people other than you know how much I enjoyed it!

This book is laugh-out-loud funny! Laurie Notaro's experiences are quirky all in themselves, but it's her perceptions and wit, and how frighteningly close her thoughts are to your own thoughts about situations (but you'd refrain from saying them outloud) that make this book hysterical. Because this book is a set of her reflections, any chapter can be read on its own, and a few of the reflections did make me cringe (not in a good way)--like the bathroom humor, but over-all, it's a nice, non-serious, read that is guaranteed not to strain any brain cells.

Juvenile humor

I'm half way through this book and will not finish it. I don't understand why a grown woman would find so much humor in bird, doggie, human poop. It's the type of humor an adolescent boy would find very funny. I did not laugh out loud at any point. It's obvious she trying to direct the humor at herself -- she misses the mark -- on so many levels.

    This has got to be the funniest book I have ever read. I didn't

    This has got to be the funniest book I have ever read. I didn't dare take it with me for fear of making a fool of myself by uproariously laughing in the Dr office or other places where I usually take a book to bide my time waiting, A must read for the sheer joy of reading something funny.

    Hysterical!

    My husband hates when I read her books because I always stay up far too late dreading and wake him up with my giggling. Love her books!

    awesome!!

    laurie notaro is one of the most interesting humor writers as of late. a friend lent me one of her books ,and i proceeded to read all of them. this book is my very favorite. there is something in there that everyone can relate too.(i could relate to it all,which is probably why i liked it so much.) though her books are written for a female audience, men will find them humorous as well.it's the stuff that day to day life is made of. she shows you the humor in it and the absurdity of it. a great, quick laugh out loud read.

    I Also Recommend:

    She is EVERY ditsy woman!!!! ?

    Laurie's books rock. There are no three better words than that except "I peed laughing." If you're into a more toilet-type humor and need a lift, pick this book up and enjoy it. You'll never look at treadmills the same way again!
