Gosh, how did I not review this earlier? Ah well. I don't have much to say about this. I found it to be funny most of the time, and it was well worth listening to. I wasn't following her blog before, but I certainly am now.

Here's one thing I loved about this book: when she said something was so terrible and kept building it up, it was actually as terrible as she said it would be. It was funny, sure, but I was also driving around with a look of horror on my face, with my hand pressed against my mouth and nose, because holy crap it was that terrible and she was dead-on. Nothing bugs me more than a suspenseful build-up and a lame climax. Utterly fantastic, and I highly recommend listening to this on audiobook.
