For an autobiographical book, which is not my choice of genre, I really enjoyed this. Schumer is funny and unfiltered and speaks candidly about both funny and tough topics.

A good one to listen to while at the gym and doing chores. The essays are a good mixture of humorous and serious. Was impressed by how she shared her vulnerability and her experiences both growing up and working to become a comedian. Learned a lot about how comedians first get work and make their way up the ladder. I‘ve never watched her show or scene train wreck but she came across as very relatable in this book. #audiobook

Book 43 of the year, finished June 3, audio

Another attempt at nonfiction, I did enjoy this more than the last one but still rather eh.

My biggest irritation: if you're going to advocate for female sexual empowerment, please know that the vulva, labia, and clitoris are all separate from the vagina. Then use the appropriate word for the body part you're talking about. We can't be empowered if we don't know the names of our body parts.

Audiobook. It was a fun company and touched issues like self image, which hit home. I thought it was going to be a complete waste of time but I really liked it. Light, but also deep in many levels, funny and warm.

Both my memory and my LibraryThing tell me that I own this in hardcover; but I can't for the life of me put my hands on it today. Anyway, I listened via Overdrive.

Amy Schumer is always the first person to point out her own faults and poor decisions (apparently plentiful and my least favorite parts of the book). Overall, however, she comes across as a funny, kind, and determined woman.

I'm not a devoted fan, but I appreciate her positives.

Post 2 of 3. I've been wanting to read this for a while, glad I finally did. There were several parts that made me laugh out loud, and parts that were surprisingly sad. She may be pretty controversial, but I find her to be funny some of the time and I like that she can mix in the 'life as a celebrity' parts along with the 'I'm a normal person just like you' parts without it seeming fake or too braggy.

Audiobook. Pretty good, narration by Amy Schumer which was perfect. Rye, funny but definitely not for the faint of heart or easily shocked or offended. These are her stories, funny, crude and sad but ultimately she conveys how self-assured she is in her own skin. Quick listen but wear headphones!

At the risk of sounding asshole-ish, I was super pleasantly surprised at Schumer and her memoir. While having the raunchy humor able to use words like "poop hole" and "vagina" freely, she is also smart and kind and refreshingly adorable, naming one of the things she loves being a smaller animal riding a bigger animal. Who doesn't love that CUTENESS? And she had some legitimate issues that she faced that I really related to. Solid listen ?

RamsFan1963 I always enjoyed her standup, but I was surprised by the depth and intelligence of her book. I've recommended it to fans and non-fans alike. 12mo
LoverofLit @RamsFan1963 Completely agreed. I went into it expecting her standard raunchy humor and was impressed with the depth. 12mo

I will always love her crude jokes. Great audiobook so far.

I cringed and laughed when she said something along the lines of... "I truly admire and envy a man's one simplistic need to put his dick in any wet hole. How easy my life would be if that was all I needed." ???

VERY rarely do I completely bail on a book.I‘m a ‘power through it no matter what!‘ Kind of reader, but this book? It is so horrible I thought I‘d do more harm to myself if I continued reading it. What irked me the most was all the foul language. It seemed barely a page could go by before using the ‘f‘ bomb. She also enjoyed using the c word for girls. That isn‘t humor and it shows no intellect.Doesn‘t hold a candle to Tina, Amy P & Mindy‘s books.

I so liked her vulnerability in the retelling of her younger years & abusive relationship... but I wasn't blown away. Though I was right there with her, emotionally, when she was describing her past w/ her father, how she maintains her positive attitude when other people degrade her based on her looks, or how she hustled her way to where she is now. I'd definitely recommend to fans of celebrity memoirs or humor- but definitely get the audiobook.

I think I‘m a bit biased here because I really like Amy Schumer. I enjoy her acting and comedy and find her to be very genuine and this book just reinforced that for me. She doesn‘t shy away from the truth in any of her essays and in that makes herself accessible and real to the reader. She also is funny and smart and unflinchingly honest in this book which are all the traits that I love about her. I enjoyed this and couldn‘t put it down.

I finished this #audiobook just as the #readathon was wrapping up. I managed 6 hours despite my chronic illness throwing me a curveball, and I look forward to reading about y'all's readathon experiences! (After a nap 😴) Even when I can barely participate, I love joining with readers around the world in this event. ❤️

I wish I liked Amy Schumer‘s book more than I did. I like her, and I enjoy her comedy. She‘s strong, outspoken, and all-around awesome. But I just could not get pulled into this memoir, with the exception of the chapters about her father‘s battles with MS and their relationship, which I felt were the strongest parts of the book.

I think Amy is great, even if her humor isn't always to my taste. This book covers a wide range of topics that definitely endeared her to me, she tackles everything from her childhood with an alcoholic father to gun violence (and how sad is it that with all of the gun related incidents of late I'd almost forgotten about the shooting that happened during a showing of her movie Trainwreck a while back). Should definitely be read on audio I'd think!

I finished my second #FreakyFriday book, and I think it‘s safe to say @MissAimz_55 has excellent taste. 🙌🏻

I have always thought Amy Schumer was funny, but I‘ve not gone out of my way to see her stuff, and wasn‘t planning to read this book. I‘m so glad I did! I listened to the audio, read by Amy, and absolutely loved it. I laughed, I cried, and I was surprised. She is hilarious, unashamed, crude, and so very human and relatable.

I especially appreciated how brave Amy was about laying bare some traumatic things that happened to her, and I reaped the intended therapeutic value by reflecting on similar things done to me. Amy and I don't agree on everything, but this isn't a critique of her, just her book, which was very funny, often touching, with an intro I wish I'd skipped. #audiobook

Megabooks I didn‘t care for the intro either. The rest of the book was good. 2y

This was a really fun read. Amy is very open about her life, to the point where sometimes I thought ‘woah‘ but she is also funny and sweet and positive. She ended a few chapters with quite empowering pieces that I really enjoyed and hadn‘t expected from a memoir. She comes across really well, like someone I‘d want to hang out with, but she likes her alone time, so I‘d probably just wave and leave her be!

This is a book, of the life of Amy Schumer through her words.
This was an interesting book, i haven't read autobiographical type of books. And so this was a first for me. So instead of being really into a book, and unable to stop. It seemed to me like a lot of information to digest. So i had to take breaks and come back to it.
But an interesting read, and i wonder how i will feel about the others i want to read

Honesty moment: the sun is shining and it is a beautiful day, but this has been a rough week. I‘m here in FL helping my mom during chemo, but my dad and I have never had a great relationship (he basically treats everyone he cares about like crap).

Trying to stay sane by lots of #audiowalking while my mom rests in the afternoons. Found a neat little nature preserve nearby that I‘m exploring before going to Starbucks.

Not sure what advice regarding your dad‘s poor behavior. Used to have a brother in law like that. When they had a tragic event in their lives, he ramped up his behavior even worse. I think they are control freaks and when health issues happen, they lose control . Just my guess 2y

4thhouseontheleft @Kaye Yes, that is so true, Litsy is such a friendly and supportive place! We‘re all used to this, my dad has always been this way.

When they stayed with us for a month last November for my mom‘s surgeries...now that was a trial. 😉 2y
Kaye I‘m sorry you have that to deal with on top of your mom‘s illness. Try to take care of yourself too and get a bit of time away even a few minutes a day. You don‘t want your own health to suffer from all the stress. You can do this. Be strong. You can come back home then and kick the crap out of the tree in your yard or take a sledgehammer to an old junker car or something to get your mad out. 2y

These are the three I picked out. Any opinion on the #audiobook version of any of these, and which one I should try first?

All but Amy Schumer‘s were on my #tbr shelf already, and I added Amy because I like comedian memoirs on long, boring drives. 😃

As a rule I don‘t like autobiographies, I‘m just not interested in them, but after finding the comedic genius that is Amy Schumer, I began searching for her interviews which lead me to this book, and it is *so worth reading* the stories are funny, challenging, heartwarming and real! It made me actually physically cry with laughter! I love it!

Love Amy Schumer, and loved this book. I‘ve read several other books by comedians and this was by far, better than most. I enjoyed it more than Tina Fey‘s book, Ellen‘s, or Aziz Ansari‘s. It was funny, empowering, and surprising. This was not just a light hearted comedy. Schumer boldly addressed some serious issues from domestic violence and sexual assault, to gun violence. It was both thought provoking and hilarious. Definitely worth reading.

Well colour me surprised! I enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would. There were things that made me laugh and things that moved me too. I could have done without the lists and without the chapter on her stuffed animals, but other than that, I felt she was incredibly honest and real. I love that she is unabashedly a feminist. She is also kind, smart and doesn't make apologies for any of her failures or shortcomings. And she‘s funny!

Before reading this book I always thought of Amy Schumer as funny, strong, sassy, and a no-nonsense woman. I didn't realize her #activism and also a lot of the stuff she's gone through. This book had me laughing, nodding my head, frustrated, and feeling like I need to go out and do more especially when it comes to gender equality. I think everyone should read this book! #readingresolutions #finishingfebruary #quotsyfeb18 #power

tif I'm on the fence about Ms Schumer. She seems good and strong and says good things but she also seems to have a lot of internalised misogyny. I WANT to like her. There's just always a niggling something. 2y
tif I did enjoy this book though 😊 2y
MissAimz_55 @tif ya I get that but I think it cones from her being human and her childhood and especially her parents have caused her to have a lot of issues that sometimes causes some of what she says to rub me the wrong way. I definitely wouldn't put her up there with a lot of other women who have done more and live feminism day in and day out. It was more of a surprising thing to me . 2y
tif @MissAimz_55 for me it's that she kind of stood up for Louis CK. But I relate to her a lot. Her ability to not give a crap what other people think and to take up as much space as you want in the world is admirable. 2y
MissAimz_55 @tif ohhhh dang I missed that. Yes that is no good at all! Especially since she was sexually assaulted as well as physically assaulted. 2y
