Nothing like Jenny Lawson

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I really don't know.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Thyre again?


How could the performance have been better?

The performance would have been better if the writing (humor) were better. It was never a question of voice.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. I only half-laughed one time. It is so boring.

Any additional comments?

Dark At the Roots

I wasn't wild about some of the topics in this book, however the story line and goings on held my interest.
