Book 72: My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands by Chelsea Handler: Rating 4 Wine Glasses

Posted July 29, 2010 by Felicia S in 2010 Read / 0 Comments


About: In this raucous collection of true-life stories, actress and comedian Chelsea Handler recounts her time spent in the social trenches with that wild, strange, irresistible, and often gratifying beast: the one-night stand.

What I Loved:  Chelsea is so very Chelsea in this book.  She gets herself into the most unusual situations and always seems to keep a sense of humor about herself.  She manages to make even the most uncomfortable situation funny.

What I Liked:  She never names people–she gives them cute little nicknames.  I also like the chronological order of things, her situations change as she gets older and she doesn’t try to make herself look like a saint.

What was So-So: Not a darn thing!  I listened to this on audio book and found myself laughing out loud often.

Why I gave it a 4:  I love reading auto-biographies that are interesting and fun.  Chelsea managed to keep a sense of humor about her life and relay that to the reader/listener.

Book Received From: Purchased on Audible
