Just not a fan- I'm not vociferously saying "I hate this book," but when she starts in childhood, and it just goes so slowly through that- I knew I wouldn't finish it. So caveat, this is a review of the first few chapters.

I'm not against promiscuity, but I do question her ability to understand her actions at such a young age, and so, I had this kind of lingering, "in-the-wings" feeling that this is somewhat of a deluded confessional. I never got to the fun dating-as-an-adult, and instead was left with what was probably more scarring youthful adventures. Also, I just didn't find it funny, and it's probably more for that audience. Pop culture references weren't funny or cute to me. Remember that Hawaiian Barbie doll? Yeah, I do. The Muppets? Yeah. So. To me they distract, especially if they're not really part of the moving forward actions.

The asides to "serious comedians" were a little heavy-handed.

I love her blog, she comes recommended by folks I respect, and even my librarian was all pumped to read it- everyone loves a good hipster put-down.
