Customer Reviews

For those who carry great baggage & for those who need to realise how light their load really is...laughing & crying all the wayJenny Lawson has a way with words, the most irreverently offbeat sense of humour and a perspective that she so generously shares, despite the incredible burden that it really is. There are very few books that I laugh-cry-laugh through, getting the best abdominal workout ever.It's at it's best when shared with a friend, while clutching your sides and shrieking with laughter...right before you fall into that silent laughter, where you're laughing so hard that you can't breathe and no sound comes out, and it sort of feeds on itself, so that when you eventually recover and are able to get back to your place on the page, you realize you hadn't even reached the punchline yet.However, amidst the laughter and the tears is the very serious and very real experience of an exceptionally courageous woman baring her soul and her neuroses and mental landscape with such glaring and insightful honesty that it is also truly humbling. You're either going to find yourself a whole lot more appreciative that your crazy isn't as much a burden, or you're going to find out that you're not the only one in the world who has a whole lot more baggage to haul than everyone else does and that sadly, life is not fair, often unpleasant and, quite frankly, most of it you just have to either laugh or cry through.Most of us would just cry, so Jenny, being able to laugh and make us laugh with her (never at her) is an incredibly beautiful soul indeed.May I also say, severe admiration and kudos to her husband, who does make appearances, another unsung hero (well, truly appreciated by Jenny)... but basically a regular guy with a great heart who, like so many in life who rise each morning to the unforeseen challenges lying ahead, does his best to meet them and make it through.I loved this so much that I automatically bought "Furiously Happy" - the second book.Bonding with my family has never been so much fun or so easy. Same for counting blessings, broadening one's compassion and seeing this world from a whole new crazy angle.5The reason why I don't trust book ratings anymoreDon't waste your money. Please. It's not a story, it's more like reading the diary of a 13yo that overthinks about how awkward and weird they are, when in fact they just exaggerate everything. It's not funny or relatable. Chapters have no coherence with each other. I couldn't even finish it, I tried but I couldn't. The part that really baffled me was the chapter where she has a conversation with her husband through post-its. Like. How. Is. That. In. A. Book. ??? If the conversation would have been funny, or interesting at all, then alright. But it was a total overkill.I'm honestly not a hard to satisfy person, I'm not a hardcore critic and generally like popular books. I will never comprehend how this book got such success, it really makes me think anyone could write any crap and call it a book, if you have the right connections you get successful.One star because I can't give less (and for giving me the hopes of becoming a New York Time Bestseller with my teen year's diary if I publish it one day).I never write reviews but I'm hoping to save someone from the disgrace of owning a copy of this book.1I was hoping for a relaxing funny read - and instead got story after story about ...I was hoping for a relaxing funny read - and instead got story after story about taxidermy, blood, and dead animals. Not funny to me. After 30 pages, I gave up on it.1The Best Part is the CoverI am surprised I finished this book. The author has a terminal case of "potty mouth" and doesn't know how to communicate below a shout, There was way too many dead and bloody animals, and I thought her story was pathetically obtuse.1Yes. Yes, you should. Seriously. Buy it now. Do it! What are you waiting for?!?! Snap to it!Being a bit of a shut-in, I'd completely missed out on the Lawson craze, and I can only thank God Almighty for the good fortune of having stumbled upon this piece of comedic perfection.Highly relatable, witty, and fresh, "Let's Pretend" had me laughing aloud by page ten, and I never really stopped.Even her use of profanity is clever. Had she been inclined to preface each with, "please excuse my French," one would, in short order, assume her a multi-cultural linguist. However, Lawson sets herself apart from most authors in that the cursing never seems forced, childish, or derogatory; to the contrary, the words are used to color a scene and elevate the laugh-level of the reader.If there existed a way for me to force you to purchase and consume this book, then I would, and you'd feel so completely in my debt that you'd probably send me gifts of gold (white, please), jewels (black pearls make my heart flutter), and offer to babysit my children for free (I would happily forfeit ANY amount of material pleasure for a break from these mini, soul-crushing... blessings ).Buy this book. Do it for yourself; do it out of guilt for missing ab day; and do it for The Queen!!!!!5I did laugh out loud a few times but overall I feel the author was trying too hard to be funny. I also thought some jokes were inappropriateI always finish my books but I have to be honest I didn't finish this one. I read about half..I did laugh out loud a few times but overall I feel the author was trying too hard to be funny. I also thought some jokes were inappropriate.. For example, one about genocide...a horror that should not be joked about. I've read varying reviews on this book... These are my two cents1Let's Pretend That I Never Read This Book. That's How Bad it Was.What did I like? About 2 chapters where she talked about meeting her husband. I thought maybe it was going to turn into a decent book. I was wrong. What did I dislike? I disliked that somehow this ended up on the New York Times Bestseller List as as a #1 Seller; that Entertainment Weekly gave it glowing reviews; that Ladies Home Journal called it "the funniest memoir ever...."; that People Magazine, the Washington Post, etc. gave this raving reviews. I am clearly not in touch with what is going on in the world. It was trash. Complete and utter trash.I was looking for an uplifting humorous book. Something to make me smile. All of the reviews said that this was the book to buy. They were wrong and I paid too much money for this book. I don't know what I am going to do with it. I can't give it to a local charity because I would be ashamed. I can't recommend and share it with a friend. All I have left is to throw it in the garbage. What a waste of good paper (I should have bought it on Kindle, my mistake). Did I mention that I don't like the book? She made money on this book? And sadly, I ordered two humorous books at the same time and now I see that the second one is written by Jenny Lawson as well! The joke is obviously on me, but I refuse to let her and these blind book critiques have the last laugh!Save yourself. Do not buy this book. Save yourself time, money, and aggrevation knowing that people like this are considered "authors". If that is the case, then I am writing my own book because they are selling people a bill of goods and people aren't smart enough to see it.I am ashamed to know that I spent so much time trying to understand this author (who seems like an intelligent person). She never once made me smile or laugh. She just constantly shocked and amazed me. She actually quit her job in HR to write....this. But hey, she is laughing all the way to the bank. The joke is on us.1I'd like for Amazon to pretend I never bought it -- and refund my money!The cover was the best part of this book. Sorry, I really wanted to like it, but it left me cold.1Poorly Written and Not FunnyI may be the only person to have read the book Let s Pretend This Never Happened, by Jenny Lawson, who is revolted by Ms Lawson s lame attempts at humor and her poor writing style. She endlessly repeats herself, her sentence structure is poor and her sense of humor is tedious and superficial. I wasn t able to finish the audiobook, and am sorry I wasted money on a work that many reviewers describe as wonderful. No. It isn t good. It is a colossal waste of time.1Embarrassingly Too FunnySometimes you want to forget very embarrassing things that happen in your life and a few of those times you ll ask your friends to pretend it didn t happen, now think about that being the majority of your life. Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess , recounts her life from childhood through school, romance, marriage, and motherhood in her first book, Let s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir.Lawson starts off the book by throwing the reader into the deep end of her humor and really doesn t let them resurface until after finishing the book. Beginning with her childhood in Wall, Texas, Lawson goes through her quirky life from one embarrassing moment to another especially since her own father was a quirky taxidermist whose business was in the backyard AND that was before she even started school. Misadventures in high school mainly dealing with a cow and college follow, and it is in the latter where she meets her husband in which the most hilarious moments of her life begin. And through her marriage with Victor, the birth of their daughter, and move out into Texas countryside the misadventures only continue with predictably hilarious, yet embarrassing results.It s hard to really evaluate a humorous memoir, except grading it on the content of its own humor. Honestly, given how much I looked forward to reading this book each day and the fact I had to stop reading out of either laughing or just being embarrassed at the author s own embarrassing situations means it succeeded. Yet on top of that is Lawson s faux notes from her editor(s) just add to the overall experience of the book. And the added bonus chapter of the paperback of notes from her promotional tour is a cherry on top of everything.Let s Pretend This Never Happened is a hilarious memoir of a woman who owns up to her embarrassing moments, cherishes them, and knows they made her who she is. Though this wasn t the first book by Jenny Lawson that I ve read, yet now I can see why it became a bestseller and has led to a few more books by Lawson.5
