Product Description

Review

"Even when I was funny, I wasn't this funny."  —Augusten Burroughs, author of Running With Scissors and This is How

“There’s something wrong with Jenny Lawson—magnificently wrong. I defy you to read her work and not hurt yourself laughing.” —Jen Lancaster




“The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud, but you know that really you shouldn’t be laughing and probably you’ll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn’t read it. That would be safer and wiser.” —Neil Gaiman


“Jenny Lawson is hilarious, snarky, witty, totally inappropriate, and ‘Like Mother Teresa, Only Better.’” —Marie Claire magazine


“Jenny Lawson’s writing is nothing less than revolutionary. . . . I say this without a hint of exaggeration: She may be one of the most progressive women’s voices of our time.” —Karen Walrond, author of The Beauty of Different


Let's Pretend This Never Happened won Goodread’s Best Humor Book of 2012 and was chosen as one of Hudson Bookseller’s Best Books of 2012

I had read so many good reviews about this book and am trying to work my way through it. Am not enjoying it - at all.
Not very funny no matter how I try and interpret it.
Am sorry I purchased it.
If I could return it for a refund - I would.

This book was hilarious. I laughed out loud, I also cried in parts. It almost feels like you are sitting down and having an honest conversation with the author. If you are a fan of the bloggess, you will love this book.

I bought this book based solely on a brief description. I had never read any of Jenny Lawson's blogs prior but really enjoyed this glimpse into her quirky, hilarious, and sometimes slightly horrifying day-to-day. Reading this book was like having a glass of wine (or a bottle) with girlfriends. I laughed out loud. A lot.

This book is beyond hilarious. It's clever, witty and simply a breath of fresh air. Love the style, and how easily the story flow, you will never find yourself bored.
And just a warning - you will find yourself bursting out loud laughing.

Wacky, hilarious, and true – similar to Aleesa Sutton’s Diary of a Single Mormon Female. I sat down to check out the first chapter and got up two hours later -- for Kleenexes to staunch the tears of laughter. This is one of the weirdest and funniest books I’ve ever read. I wish Jenny Lawson could come and spend a day at my house

There is something that is just off about Jenny Lawson. She is delightfully off kilter. And as such is hysterically funny!
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.

Truly the funniest thing I have ever read. Everyone should be warned not to read this in public. I had one person actually come over to me to make sure I was okay because I was crying as I was reading this book. I simply held the book cover up for her to see and she understood instantly "oh.. that book! she's completely mad!'. Yup, well written, quick witted, insane, as a british person I swear that Jenny Lawsom must have some british comedic genes in her, it's shades of Monty Python at times. Have bought this book several times to give to others and have lent my own copy out many times. Last person I loaned it too phoned me sobbing... I thought someone had died until I realized she was laughin.. when she caught her breath all I heard was "....I'm only on page 23....".
I'm waiting for the sequel now!

Absolutely by far and away the funniest book I have ever read. Laugh out loud clenching your stomach in agony kind of funny. I've probably read it six times when I have been really down and needed a little laughter. It is disjointed and immature and full of curses. It is also a (semi-true) autobiography and the woman herself is disjointed and immature and full of curses. If someone with sever ADD had written Glass Castles (another amazing book by the way) after drinking several cups of coffee this is how I imagine it would've turned out. Maybe not for the most jaded, and not for anyone who is stuffy or super-critical, but the rest of us need to enjoy this piece of brilliance.
