This book was really funny for the first few chapters then the humor fell off. I was disappointed as I kept reading because each chapter seemed more pointless and dry than the previous. The only reason I ended up actually finishing the book was because I held on to the hope it would get better, but it didn't. Overall the book is mediocre.

Thank God I borrowed this book from the library and didn't waste one penny on it. After reading the reviews, I was really looking forward to this read. It sounded clever. I like clever. This was not clever. VERY disappointing. I like a good story about being drunk as much as the next person, but an entire book of stories about being fall-down drunk and smoking too much and poor me this and poor me that was too much whining for me. One star is being kind.

I was suckered into this book by its catchy title and enticing cover-- do not make the same mistake I did by buying this book. Aside from a few chuckles here and there, Notaro's stories fall into the 'it was funny at the time' category. Her tales of drunken stupors get tired really fast. The quality of writing is no better than average and the stories aren't all that interesting. The only thing good about this book is that it is a quick read.

I can't even finish it and the only reason I tried so hard to is because I paid for it. Boring.

After reading some of the reviews and the biggest majority raved about the book,I would advice you to read the sample first.It was so bad I couldn't hardly get through it.What a disapointment.

There are maybe 3 stories in here that resonated with me, but frankly, the main theme appeared to be getting drunk and then doing stupid stuff. Wish I had passed. Nice writing, though.

When I started to read it, I thought it would be awesome. Wrong. Filled with bodily functions & drunk tales, it starts to be boring and annoying.

I agree with the reviewer who said this book deserves less than a star. It is terrible. Ms. Notaro is completely undeserving of the positive press she has received for this book. She is a sub-average, trite 'writer'. It is a shame that this book has done so well since there are so many more deserving female authors out there who don't receive 1/100th of the publicity.

If you like original, funny and witty stories, then this is not the book for you. This book delivers a heaping dose of mundane writing, stereotypical gender roles, and absolutely no valuable insight into adult life. Notaro tries to emphasize her dorky and quirky aspects, but is neither charming or convincing in doing so. Her stories read much like those of a high school creative writing class taught by a substitute teacher. There are far too many captivating and intelligently funny books in this genre for Notaro's to make any waves.

I bought this book thinking that all the blurb made it look good. Yeah right. This book is TERRIBLE. The writing and grammer is bad. The book has no purpose. I feel that I wasted my money and guess what. I have only made it to the second chapter. I guess writing for a column does help sell books.

So, i picked up this book from our local library because it promised to be funny, gut busting funny and i decided i needed a good laugh. The good laugh was that anyone thought this was a good book. The book bounces back and forth between the present and the past. In the past, she is a young girl with 2 sisters, has a mother with constant headaches and a father who tries and often fails. In the present, she is the ugly girl with pretty friends, getting drunk. Oh, hey, where is the humor here? I gave up, i never finished the book. I couldn't, it was just too....blah. I don't want to read about drunks whose dogs always eat her underwear, sorry

I liked it, she had some really funny parts, but the character itself (which I am sure is an exaggerated version of herself) grossed me out in parts with all the smoking...but that is just me.
