Publisher's Summary

S'Mother is a hilarious memoir based on 30 years of unsolicited advice, news updates, and opinions in the form of thousands of inappropriate, embarrassing, and utterly crazy letters showing the pathological extremes maternal instincts can take. Why is a grown woman so frantic that her adult son screw on his windows to keep out killer bees? Are adult trick-or-treaters really that much of a threat? Adam saved his mom's letters as proof this all happened and reproduces many of them in the book. And now, with time, perspective, and plenty of therapy, he acknowledges and accepts the comedy of it all and is proud to share his story with you, if for no other reason than to make you feel better about your own mother.

likely going to get a letter for not liking this

Would you try another book from Adam Chester and/or Adam & Joan Chester?

I didn't mind his mom reading but I really didn't like the way the book was written. He sounded ridiculous and he kept adding stupid production tricks to make it more interesting instead of writing better

Has S'Mother turned you off from other books in this genre?

It is not a great representation of the genre. There are so many great comedy biographies and unfortunately this should have stayed as a blog

What didn’t you like about Adam & Joan Chester’s performance?

It was corny. The story didn't flow nicely and he was more focussed on vilifying his mother than making an interesting story.

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

It mostly disappointed me. Crazy moms are usually hilarious but this book felt like it was a great Twitter feed that should have kept to the 140 character format. The book had good bones but horrible follow through

She's Funny; His Commentary not so much ...

Would you try another book from Adam Chester and/or Adam & Joan Chester?


Would you recommend S'Mother to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes and no. There is no doubt that Mrs. C is certifiable. Honestly, the humor of her letters could have stood on their own. Which is probably a disappointment to both Adam and Mrs. C. Him because his mother actually outshines him (sorry!). And her because she never intended for her letters to be funny.

What does Adam & Joan Chester bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The audio version is probably better than the written version because she actually reads her insane letters herself. The fact that she's willing to repeat her words and probably still stands by them (Adam - when WAS the last time you got a tetanus shot?) makes it even more hysterical. Mrs. C - you can stop buying traveler's insurance. It's another scam. I heard about it on CNN.

Could you see S'Mother being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I think it already was. It was called, "Everybody Loves Raymond."
