It's okay but felt a little cheated
So there are funny parts and lots of them. However, more than once I noticed the author was speaks directly to a very specific audience, that of the teenage boy. I mean she never addresses her reader as female but on several occasions does as male. Not that I care so much but as a female listener, I felt a little excluded and like this part wasn't for me. I get that maybe her target audience is the prepubescent male, but why exclude others who want to laugh too. Throw us an acknowledgement occasionally too.
Also, at least once or twice the author/narrator says "I'm not going to read this part. You need to go buy the book." Which really bothers me because didn't I just pay money to listen to an "unabridged" version of this book? Doesn't that mean that every word should be read? So basically, the narration cheats the listener and is constantly asking the listener to go buy more of her stuff. Maybe I would but not when that's the message I'm getting every half hour or so.
All in all, this is a mindless, occasionally comical listen, which was mostly what I was expecting and wanting at the time.

I feel like you can always find something good in any book and like Olivia Munn, but this book was just plain lousy. It was completely fragmented and the language was foul to put it mildly. I don???t mind salty language if it advances the story or fits, but f***???n f*** yeah is pointless no matter how you look at it. Olivia is talented and funny and this failed miserably to show that. And why did she feel the need to constantly pimp her book?!? I honestly feel like I was ripped off by this book.
