And just a warning - you will find yourself bursting out loud laughing.
What I really appreciate about Jenny's approach is that she never shies away from anything. She is completely open about her various mental health events and I really respect that. It takes a lot of strength to be able to reflect upon that as an individual, but to share that with people who may not necessarily understand, I think it's great. It isn't a large focus of the book, but she does mention it enough that the reader is fully aware of the circumstances.
I felt like this book has a great flow to it. It's basically one highlight of her life at a time and her narration and outlook on certain events is hilarious. I appreciate her darker, often cynical humour but don't think that is all she has to offer. She definitely has a great sense of humour that most readers will find funny.
My only "problem" with this book is that it is really long! It clocks in at close to 9 hours as an audio CD, which is a long time to listen to anyone speak. I would have been more than satisfied if it was a little shorter but I did enjoy the entire piece, even if I did get a little bored of it by the end.
There is no real flow to the book, but that is what makes it have its own unique flow at the same time. And that is what makes the book real.
I laughed a lot while reading this. I laughed at things I probably shouldn't have laughed at. But I did. It was refreshing to read something so authentically written by the author, that so authentically portrayed who she is and her life.
Her book is written almost as an extension of her blog. It is written in a very similar style. And as other reviewers have said if it was written any other way it wouldn't have been right.
This book is odd. It is quirky and witty. It is unlike anything you've ever read before. You should probably get yourself a copy now and settle in for the crazy ride it is about to take you on. It is SOOOOO worth it! I can't wait to read more from Jenny.
I'm waiting for the sequel now!
