Publisher's Summary

Are you lacking direction in how to whip up a swanky soiree for lumberjacks? A dinner party for white-collar workers? A festive gathering for the grieving? Don't despair. Take a cue from entertaining expert Amy Sedaris and host an unforgettable fete that will have your guests raving. No matter the style or size of the gathering, from the straightforward to the bizarre, I Like You provides jackpot recipes and solid advice laced with Amy's blisteringly funny take on entertaining and everything it takes to pull off a party with extraordinary flair.
You don't even need to be a host or hostess to benefit; Amy offers tips for guests, too! Readers will discover unique dishes to serve alcoholics (Broiled Frozen Chicken Wings with Applesauce), the secret to a successful children's party (a half-hour time limit, games included), and much, much more!

A Goldmine

I found this book a delightful read. My favorite part- and it's not easy to choose, was the hilariously informative section on how to be a good guest. Make no mistake, the content is not just great satire, but an actual handbook on how to give a successful party. The included pdf files of the recipes mentioned are the icing on the cake.

Ms. Sedaris gives useful tips I have never heard or seen anywhere else. Her narration is top notch and a treat in itself. I can't wait for her next effort!

This is the book you will give for the Holidays.

Hilarious

I listened to this book on a long flight to Hawaii. Amy's strangeness and humor is a precious gift to a world that takes itself too seriously.

Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less annoying narration

Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Sedaris? Why or why not?

Possibly if not read by the author

Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Sedaris’s performances?

Nope

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Dissapointment - I had high hopes

Any additional comments?

Is probably just because I am British, and I am not used to the timbre of that type of voice. I liked the concept, and found it funny in places, but not sufficiently to warrent listening beyond car journey I started listening to it in.
