I love Jen's other memoirs. I would put this one way above Jeneration X. I have really loved all of her other memoirs, so I guess I'm only disappointed because it didn't live up to those. I still enjoyed it, and finished it in two days. She says "sidebar" way too much in this book. At first, I thought it was just going to be in the opening chapter, but it was constant sidebaring through the entire book.

I listened to this twice, and maybe that was my mistake. I enjoyed it the first time, but the second time there were things about it that weren't satisfying. Jen's matured a lot, and her writing has gotten a bit stuffy and formal. Or maybe that's just the over-enunciating/stuffy way she reads it. She learns lots of lessons about herself and is so damn pleased about it, that after awhile I found myself rolling my eyes and getting twitchy. She has FINALLY stumbled upon the key to her losing weight, but decides that sharing the details of it aren't appropriate for a "funny memoir" - NO! I want to know! There's just a whole lot of smug judging that made me feel less and less that Jen's someone I'd want to hang out with (the way I USED to feel$. Couple that with snooze-worthy stories, stilted dialogue, and constant apologizing any time she has an opinion that might be the slightest bit controversial and it's a wash. The only thing I regret is going back for the second reading!
