Leave out the poltics
Ehh, the first half of the book is pretty funny, but then she seems to run out of steam as things go on, and it starts to get really boring. I enjoyed the stories of her growing up and the way that her tv series came about, laughed out loud a few times even..!
However, throughout the book, she starts sneaking in a few things about her political beliefs here and there... eventually resulting in her fawning over Obama and how wonderful he is, etc.. Bah! Just ruins the tone of the book and takes away from the funny stuff.
Heard Sarah on stern today (great interview) and rushed home to get her book on my iPad. Great purchase! Not for everyone, of course (you'll know after the first page if this is the book for you), but I can't get enough of Sarah and her book did not disappoint.
A Must Read
If you've ever laughed at Sarah Silverman (and who hasn't? Seriously.) This is a great book! I'm only a short way into it so I don't want to speak too soon but this might be the single most important book in the history of mankind. Ok maybe not. But still. It's right up there for me.
Sarah's writing style makes me laugh out loud. It makes it difficult to read around people.
Read this book!
