Little more need be said. Turner is brilliantly comical in the a vein of Sedaris and Burroughs. Making light of heavy topics, and elevating family dynamics and dysfunction to a high-art! Highly recommended...it will make you feel so normal.

Please don't waste your time on this book. I got the book on the many 4 & 5 star reviews that said how good it was and that it was funny. It was neither to me. You feel no connection with the main character at all. At 50% I considered quitting the book - but decided to continue, giving her a little more of a chance, thinking it had to improve. Now I'm at 80% and I'm done - I can't go any further into this book.

The author seemed to try to make it funny, but it doesn't work for me. The book is just little quips of this woman telling stories of what she is thinking or little things she did - mostly revolving around drinking. The way the book is written, it's like watching a really bad reality TV show.

Full disclosure, I know the author and witnessed some of the early anecdotes. But the truly entertaining parts are AK/Amanda/Mandy's thoughts on adulthood, marriage, and parenthood. She's a little scattered, but so real. I think that if you read it, you will be jealous that I got to spend some time one on one with her in high school and wish you could now.

I have to say this is one of the worst books I've read in a long time. The book was disjointed and hard to follow. From story to story - and even within the chapter I found myself going "huh?" at some of the jumps from story to story. The worst part was that these stories were not that funny. Maybe if I had a few drinks I might have found it funny, but as a parent this book was flat out boring. So glad I got it for free.

This book was entertaining and enjoyable. I actually laughed out loud several times. I look forward to more books from this author. I have already search the kindle books for more titles from this author!The wit was sometimes sarcastic; however the love for her family shines through.

Like Irma Bombeck at her very best, A.K. Turner talks about outgrowing adolescence and embracing marriage and motherhood with side-splitting humor and profound understanding. It would be unfair to give away even one "for instance," as every scene is so carefully set up and the laughs perfectly timed. Make sure you've emptied your bladder and warned anyone within earshot to expect snorts, hoots, giggles, and belly laughs. You'll hate seeing the remaining pages dwindle to none.

I picked this book for my kindle because it was a good deal and because it had gotten a lot of good reviews saying it was a laugh riot. Well, not so much. I can relate to a mom who doesn't feel like she's holding up her end in the "good moms competition." I wanted to laugh along with the author and share her struggles, emphasis on LAUGH. This book was only OK, simply because it didn't meet my expectations. Maybe this book is good and I was just lead astray by the reviews that were shared on the amazon site.

For me, this book started off very strong. I thought the chapter about her in-laws use of their own made up words was really funny and clever, and without giving anything away, her description of her first use of marijuana had me laughing so hard that I had to put the book down a few times to collect myself to be able to continue.

I think that after this strong start, my expectations were really high. It might have been unreasonable to think that this level of hilarity was sustainable. The book sort of "settles in" after this, and I was a bit let down.

Still, definitely worth a read.
