So, I finished this book in record time. This chick is hysterical and slightly crazy.
I had already read this book and thought..hey, why not? She's entertaining and even though I could never live her life (too poor and live on the East Coast), I could live vicariously through her.
I have to admit, if I didn't have to life with the consequences, I'd lie a lot more. One of the reasons that I enjoyed this book so much is because she kept coming up with this stuff that she could feed to her boyfriend...how much could she get him to believe?
He fell for it every time.
She's no rookie though...she gets her ducks in a row. She does her research, includes co-workers, and plans out elaborate events. I won't get into details, but let's just say, no animals were hurt in the making of this book...even though there was a dog funeral.
I used to lie a lot more...when I was young...and single...and didn't have to answer to anyone. It would mostly be to guys. They will pretty much believe anything at a certain point in your life (The Glory Years: 21-26)...I miss those years.
I can't actually remember some of the stories that I made up, but I know that several of them included fake names and phone numbers, reasons that I was visiting the state (when I actually lived there), and why I couldn't even go out with them. Horrible, right?
Again, no one was hurt in any of my stories either.
It is a funny book...laugh out loud funny. Husband had to frequently ask if I was okay because I sounded like I was slowly drowning to keep from laughing out loud and waking the Crazies up.
If you're not into crazy schemes, immature story lines, and some lewd content, then stay away from this book.
If you're looking to be entertained by the occasional fart joke, meeting drunk women while on vacation (and getting them drunker just to get them in the ocean even though they can't swim), a new word for va-j-j, and the possibilities of putting a dolphin in your indoor aquarium, this is the book for you.
What are you reading this week???
I'm starting this book for another quick and light read. I'm thinking that after this one, I'm going be on to something more serious. So far, this one doesn't hold a candle to the Chelsea Handler one in my opinion.
