The ultimate test of whether a book is truly funny is whether it will make me unexpectedly burst out laughing while riding public transportation. Any sudden outburst of uncontrollable laughter is automatically classified as "crazy," and other riders will start to give you as wide a berth as possible given the confines of a packed bus. But I couldn't help myself. When she wrote about the Texas Titty Twister, I laughed. When she wrote about staying in to apply Pro-Activ to her cat's chin acne, I laughed. And when she asked a guy if he liked her "boobies," I laughed so hard I snorted. Oh, and if anyone is curious about the book her boyfriend wrote about her, it's Chad Kultgen's Average American Male.

Depressing and self indulgent

An attempt at telling "quirky embarrassing" stories about her life just feels like she's trying to justify being a miserable human being. She seems to revel in negativity. Even at one point where it looks like she's getting to the root of her issues, she chooses to ignore it rather than learn something about herself. If your looking for a fun read, look for something else.

    Funny and relateable

    Sometimes I can forgive grammar and sentence structure for a funny book. Her feelings are real and the situations she's been through are relateable for any 20 something. Easy book to read fast

    It was entertaining and funny

    Overall there were a lot of parts that were hilarious and the book kept my interest but it was sad to see how many failed relationships the girl had. I would say the book was ok and the only people that i would recommend to is single girls that can relate.

    Funny at times...

    While some chapters are hysterical, some are... well... not. Worth the read if only for the chapters that did, indeed, make me laugh outloud.

    Crude but smooth writing style

    A broken vagina somehow just isn't funny, but all the other stories are.

    Great but not amazing.

    This is a decent book which has funny moments, but it isnt as good as other books in the genre. I would definitely recommend Bossypants or People Are Unappealing instead. That said, the chapters and sections on cats in this book are very strong and beautiful.

    Giggle-worthy

    Not as laugh-out-loud as I was anticipating, but still a very entertaining read. Hilary makes herself very relateable...and that may or may not be because I've been there time and time again!
