Start by pressing the button below! Are You There, Vodka? Welllllll, lemme tell ya. Chelsea Handler has a voice that I want to punch right in the throat. I convinced myself I could get past it and the funny would outweigh the fingernails-on-a-chalkboard reaction I have had to her speaking in the past, but it was not meant to be.
Lesson learned and any future Handler endeavors by me will be strictly via print. View all 11 comments. Mar 13, Monique rated it really liked it. Cutting edge, funny sexy stories. Having seen Chelsea doing stand up and on Girls Behaving Badly, I was anxious to see how her wicked sarcastic wit would translate into text. It's fantastic! A seriously gifted writer, who combines funny and raunchy better than any woman. I mean wild, hilarious and uninhibited story telling.
And it's not just the sheer ridiculous situations she encounters. She reflects about her mindless journeys and the meaning of life in such an amusing, self-deprecating cynical Cutting edge, funny sexy stories. She reflects about her mindless journeys and the meaning of life in such an amusing, self-deprecating cynical manner.
She just has that trashy comedienne's gift of saying everything we think about but are afraid to say. And she manages to share absolutely horrifying situations and somehow make them hysterical! There are some hilarious and uncomfortable family situations. Her father was quite the provider of wisdom, selling used junkyard cars out of their front yard, while making inappropriate sexual innuendos towards his daughters.
She shares some really funny embarrassing youth debacles and misadventures, and of course her bizarre sexual encounters with some serious screw ups. My favorite of Chelsea's embarrassing re-collections: her preposterous fake celebrity elementary school tale, a LOL birthday party for a friendless girl full of re-gifting, pretending to be honeymooning with her father in order to upgrade to first class. The Mini-Me and Prison Break chapters are just classics.
Frankly if she wasn't successful, she may have ended up a basket case. If you are sensitive or quick to take offense, I would pass on this one. If you have a repressed wild side, you'll dive in headfirst and relish her antics and live vicariously through them. Also, if you like reading funny out of control drinking and sex stories, I'm half-way through Chelsea's other book May 14, Leah rated it it was ok Recommends it for: those looking for a light, entertaining read.
Shelves: read , purchased , junk. It's Me, Chelsea to be an overall entertaining collection. The first four essays were, far and away, the 'best' in the collection. Until reading this book, I had no familiarity with Handler. Totally underwhelming and inconsistently hilarious. Admittedly, the parts that were funny really were fantastic.
However, Chelsea Handler glosses over and re-arranges life events in order to align them just so - and thusly make Admittedly, I don't usually read books like this, but found Are You There, Vodka? However, Chelsea Handler glosses over and re-arranges life events in order to align them just so - and thusly make whatever anecdote she's recounting work like one of her performance jokes. Everything works just a little too well for these to be legitimate essays. Rather, the book reads like an ongoing stand-up routine with more detail added.
Overall, it's a good effort: Handler isn't the best writer and is occasionally downright dismal , but her stories are generally amusing. View all 16 comments. Oct 08, Dan rated it did not like it. This sort of book and the positive outpouring for it make me really feel like I must have missed the boat somewhere in the last couple decades of culture or something.
Maybe it is that I have never seen Handler's stand-up and came to this book expecting something a little bit different. Perhaps Handler's shtick is that she is merely making a tongue-in-cheek imitation of the cliche "mean girl" that we all know from our high school days.
But without being let in on the charade, I found connecting This sort of book and the positive outpouring for it make me really feel like I must have missed the boat somewhere in the last couple decades of culture or something. But without being let in on the charade, I found connecting with Handler throughout the book to be basically impossible. The humor mostly seems to consist of criticizing everyone in her family, her circle of friends, and anyone else she meets in her life - most typically in a way that falls a tad short of catty, landing mostly in the realm of bitchy.
Admittedly, Handler does trot out a few story moments that provoked grins and the occasional laugh. Its clear that her escapades are wildly fabricated in places where the truth might have been more banal or required even a fleeting moment of self-reflection.
Furthermore, despite all of the tweaking, many of the stories were pretty boring, just tossing in blunt comments and sailor-speak doesn't turn a dull day out into comedic gold. I had heard this book likened to some of Sedaris' essays, but find that the comparison to be wildly off-target.
Sedaris brings a sort of quiet thoughtfulness to his humor, and is most frequently the target of his own jokes. Handler, instead, brings a sort of crass entitlement to her judgments, too good for even those she is telling her story to. View all 3 comments. Apr 29, Alexis rated it really liked it.
Ah Chelsea, Hilarious. Read this on the plane ride back from atlanta. She never disappoints and I'm certain i annoyed rows 18 and 20 of Airtran Flight , and possibly rows 17 and 21 at certain points in the book with my laughter. Would recommend it to anyone :. Jul 23, Gonzalo Urrutia rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction. Chelsea Handler just might be the most obnoxious, dumb smart person ever.
Yet this book was hilarious, and I couldn't read it fast enough. Sometimes that's all it takes for something to be considered good. Dec 11, Lyndsey rated it really liked it Shelves: audiobooks , reviewed , reviewedstars. This woman is easily the funniest woman in the entertainment industry. Yes, she's rude and crude, and definitely not for the prude. But I just can't help it. I love her. She brings out the evil maniacal laugh in me, if case you didn't already notice. Since her other book is entitled "My Horizontal Life : A Collection of One-Night Stands", you can be fairly certain this book will also include sexual content as well as a lot of adult language.
So if those make you uncomfortable, don't Buhwahahaha! So if those make you uncomfortable, don't read this. At least not while others of a prudish nature are around. She does have a deeply dark sense of humor. It seems to be all in good fun, though not necessarily good taste. I like to believe she's a softie at heart, just with a hard exterior. Nevertheless, she's entertaining to say the least.
