Book Review

I'm sorry to say, nothing too exciting has been going on in the world of Erika. So here it is, another book Review!

Title: Are You There Vodka? It's me, Chelsea
Author: Chelsea Handler
Pages: 264

Book Description: In My Horizontal Life, actress and stand-up comedian Chelsea Handler boldly recounted her one-night stands-the good, the bad, and the disastrous. In this wickedly honest new work, she casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date--including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

Whether it's a vacation with her dad during which he tells airline staff they're a honeymoon couple in order to get an upgrade, or her elaborate attempts to convince her third-grade classmates that she's starring in a Private Benjamin sequel, Chelsea lets it rip in these relentlessly entertaining essays. Displaying the candor and irresistible turn of phrase that have earned her a recurring stint as a correspondent on The Tonight Show as well as her own E! series, Chelsea Lately, this deliciously skewed collection is a guilty pleasure.

My Thoughts: Meh. It was okay. Easy read. I love her show on E!, Chelsea Lately... but I just didn't find those book all that funny, which is what I was hoping for. Haven't read her other books and I wouldn't totally write them off - but they won't be at the top of my list of to read books anytime soon!

  1. I agree I like her show....sometimes but the book was okay! I like her older shows now she seems like her ego is too big!
