Handler proves the adage that just because one can, doesn't mean one should. This applies to both her role as a writer and a narrator. In this disjointed collection of memories and experiences, even her overenthusiastic voice cannot compensate for the irrelevance and frivolousness that is this book. Her anecdotes cover a range of topics from sex to sibling rivalry to parental humiliation, all showcasing how smart and witty she can be-in hindsight. Whether rambling about how she's freaked out by red-headed men or bemoaning her arrest and short stint in prison, her attempts to be funny fall flat and her valley-girl persona wears quickly on listeners. Her lively voice has the potential to do well with audiobooks, but the overall tone and ecstatic energy she emits only emphasizes the inconsequential prose. Listeners might find themselves asking for Vodka to help reach the end of this production. A Simon & Schuster hardcover.

"Chelsea Handler writes like Judy Blume, if Judy Blume were into vodka, Ecstasy, and sleeping with midgets and nineteen-year-olds."
-- Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author of In Her Shoes
"Ms. Handler's style is a friendlier, more workaday version of the haughty self-abasement practiced by Sarah Silverman, leavened by the everywoman spirit of Kathy Griffin...She seems like a cruel queen bee from an expensive college: There's something suspiciously sophisticated about how her jokes line up that suggests the moral austerity of a comic not of [Joan] Rivers's bad-girl school: Tina Fey."
-- New York Times
"Where have I been all of Chelsea Handler's life? I had no idea how funny, how brilliant she is. She is too clever for words."
-- Liz Smith, New York Post
"Chelsea Handler is a terrific comedian and a hilarious writer."

hilarious book, not for those who take themselves too seriouslyPublished 18 days ago by Just Some Dude
I like the book so far but when I got to page 58 it skipped over to page 91. I want to exchange the book but because it's 33 days after, I can't.Published 21 days ago by Stephanie
It was a good read, pretty funny at times but not as laugh out loud funny as her other books.Published 1 month ago by reneemcg
had some great stories but the writing really wasn't the best. Worth it for her stories and how she tells them. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mary Sitzler
