While this book had some humor, I made the mistake, dear readers, of ordering this in audiobooks, Cynthia Nixon gives a spirited reading; however, the cursing is so shrill and dramatic that this audiobook was unpleasant to hear. A visual soundless medium may have been more enjoyable since the eyes can skim easily without hearing the tires-on-the-street screeches of this dramatic reading. The absurdities of daily life and surreal world the cursing mommy lives in are pointed, though thankfully no woman I know has close to this thought process or lifestyle. In that way, I found the main character too cartoonish to embrace. Not for the easy listener.

One of the funniest books ever written. I have never laughed longer and harder at anything in my life. I read Ian Frazier's "Cursing Mommy" columns in the New Yorker and have always loved them, but I couldn't imagine they would make a full length book. I was wrong. The trials of the Cursing Mommy build up over the course of the year and simply continue to get more and more hilarious. I can imagine some people being put off by all the "cursing," but I would hope most would realize that it is just over the top and simply brilliant satire. Frazier is a genius, and one of the funniest writers that ever lived.

She tries so hard and fails so hilariously. My heart goes out to the Cursing Mommy.

I loved this book! I am a cursing mommy and this book made me laugh! It's for all of us moms who aren't perfect and don't try to pretend that we are.

Ian Frazier's character The Cursing Mommy is very funny, BUT she is better in installment form in The New Yorker.
