A word to the wise....this book is intended for adult audiences, so those not quite of age to call themselves that dreaded "a" word might want to avert their gaze until this afternoons review.
This is a tongue in cheek look at those situations in life that are best seen through the eyes of a clown, unless of course they are of the scary creepy variety and then let's just switch it back to an image of a fun house mirror ~shudders~. From diets to dreams, love and self diagnosis, there's at least one topic if not more that will have you chuckling, grinning, perhaps even guffawing for a few moments out of your day...and who couldn't use a few more laughs? There's even one that addresses people JUST like us. How so? It speaks to those afflicted with one or more wide spread "conditions"...perhaps you've heard of them? Blogaholism? Twitteritis? Status Update Disorder? (LOL.) Let's get a showing of hands to see just how many of you suffer from one (*cough* or all *cough*) of these.... (-raises hand-)
The "chapters" are short and sweet; in fact they read like blog posts. Oh, wait...scratch that...they are very much like blog posts just with a bit more of the "famous" added in to spice things up. Seriously! Some of her stories have been published in some rather infamous publications including this little gem seen in The Atlantic.
Recommended read for older teens through adults. Why? Because I said so....gheesh! Just kidding...there's a mention or two not quite for the younger set (not to mention an image or two that is built through the lovely descriptive words used that are a bit harder to erase than others...*shudders*). Certainly a good book to grab when you're looking for a break in your otherwise serious day...
