I am done with Jenny Lawson...

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

Furiously Happy

By: Jennifer Lawson

Genre: Biography/humor

Pages: 329

Published: 2015

Audiobook: 7 cd’s (8 hours and 20 minutes)

Read: July

1 out of 5

This book was incredibly stupid. SO...why did I keep listening? In hopes it would get better – there are a lot of great reviews. Lawson’s stories were just plain stupid, not funny and completely exaggerated. These supposedly aren’t made up stories – it is marketed as a memoir- which makes it that much worse. I found that only 3 or 4 were believable and funny. Plus, she would go on long tangents that didn’t make sense at all. Even though not worth the 8 hours of listening, I did enjoy the very last chapter – although not funny or intended that way - hearing how her blog has helped people with their mental illness was inspiring…some people must get her humor just not me.
