Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Here’s all you really need to know about Chelsea Handler, straight from the girl herself: “It is not lost on me that my life has become ridiculous.” Handler, star of her own late-night TV show, Chelsea Lately, and best-selling author of three previous titles, including Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea (2008), takes readers on her travels; each adventure can only be described as a total shit show. Absurdity reigns, from a safari in Africa, where the only ones getting penetrated (her favorite word) are the hundreds of baboons at the lodge, to the Bahamas, where after eight days in Africa without a bowel movement, Handler finally lets loose into an innocent kayak. The U.S. is not left unscathed, either. At most times, Handler is surrounded by her friends—let’s face it, she wouldn’t survive on her own—and Chunk, a half-German, half-Asian dog that she believes to be the reincarnation of her dead mother. As long as someone can make a decent margarita, and there’s Xanax on hand, Handler is just fine—although the same can’t be said for the people she encounters. The final chapters really have nothing to do with travel and feel less connected to the rest of the book; in Handler’s defense, she was probably drunk by this point in the writing process. But if you’re one of the millions who enjoy Handler’s sarcastic, self-deprecating humor (and her tendency to be pantless), then you may just pee yourself laughing as she humiliates herself from Montenegro to Telluride. Unfortunately—really unfortunately—photos weren’t available at the time of review, but based on the shenanigans described, they have a ton of potential. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Who’s not watching Chelsea Lately at 11/10c? --Ann Kelley

Chelsea is a very funny person and I love how she isn't candid at all.

I really appreciated how this book gave us a new glimpse into her life, and showed some of her vulnerability.

It seemed like it was written from a viewpoint of a twenty-two year old girl, not a forty-something woman.

First of all, let me just say that I love Chelsea Handler and I've read her other books. This book, for some reason, really rubbed me the wrong way.

She shares stories about her travel adventures with friends and family and I honestly didn't find any of it funny at all. It seemed like it was written from a viewpoint of a twenty-two year old girl, not a forty-something woman. The constant tales of drunken nights and obnoxious and juvenile behavior was just tiring and not at all interesting or funny.

I find it really distasteful when she harped on the fact that she has so much money and barely has to function as a human being anymore. Really? How is that type of smugness relatable?

There are so many wonderful books out there, unfortunately this is not one of them.

this was the worst $11 I have ever spent in my life. it wasn't funny, it didn't flow, and it was unfulfilling. I am saddened about this because I enjoyed all of her other books.

I'm guessing she has a book contract and has to crank out a certain number of books... she's definitely out of funny material.

Very disappointed with this "travelogue". Such a major disappointment after reading all her previous books and watching "Chelsea Lately" every night. I did not even laugh once. Complete waste of money. Seems like this was cranked out to fulfill a book contract.

Good for some laughs. Not nearly as great as her first 2 which had me laughing my ass off almost constantly but entertaining enough. A pretty quick read

Vulgar and not always funny. Being a pain in the ass is not enough.
Scatology is not the ultimate . Downhill

This book was just OK for me. I love Chelsea Handler but reading this book makes me realize just how self-centered she really is. I was disappointed not only in the book but her. Funny is funny, but mean is mean. I always thought her mean joking around was just that, joking around, but not anymore. I will not be buying any more of her books. That was my first and my last. She's just not all that.

I think Chelsea Handler has run out of material. This book really highlights just how ridiculously materialistic and empty her life is. One of her friends says in the book "Chelsea has been infantilized by having assistants for so long. Everything is done for her, so she doesn't know how to do anything herself." This quote about sums it up. Her drunken escapades just aren't that funny, and it's hard to relate to someone who wastes so much money on private planes and drives a Bentley. She certainly proves she is as vapid as her show and the E Network.
