It may just be that I'm not cool enough for this book, but after I was bored and annoyed by the audibook, I checked out the hardcover copy to scan for recipes. I hated the book much more. I felt that most of her tips were obvious, useless, not as funny as she was trying to be, and overall just dumb. The pictures, although I'm sure there was some creative and artistic brilliance involved in making it just so, were offensively UGLY, making even the recipes I had thought I might like to try look disgusting.

If you're interested in amazing recipes like, "The best rootbeer float: Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in your favorite glass and fill with root beer. Serve with spoon and straw.", you'll perhaps just love this book.

Julie Suzanne My latest audibook for my trips to and from work every day. I so enjoyed all the parts read by Amy Sedaris in Barrel Fever and Naked that I thought I would probably enjoy any audiobook with her voice reading it. So far, it's barely okay. I may not finish. The topic is just too "cool" for me, and it's not really that funny.
