Sintesi dell'editore

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Laurie Notaro isn't exactly a domestic goddess - unless that means she fully embraces her genetic hoarding predisposition, sneaks peeks at her husband's daily journal, or has made a list of the people she wants on her Apocalypse Survival team (her husband's not on it). Notaro chronicles her chronic misfortune in the domestic arts, including cooking, cleaning, and putting on Spanx while sweaty (which should technically qualify as an Olympic sport).

Housebroken is a rollicking new collection of essays showcasing her irreverent wit and inability to feel shame from defying nature in the quest to make her own Twinkies, to begging her new neighbors not to become urban livestock keepers, to teaching her eight-year-old nephew about hobos.

Funny

I very much enjoyed this book, and found the story to be humorous and witty; I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. However, the page after page of recipes being read was a bit much. I understand why the author included them in the actual book, but I would have been perfectly okay with them being skipped over by the person who did the audio rendition. I ended up fast forwarding through all of that portion.

Witty humor on point!

I loved the stories but I loved them even more knowing Laurie was the one telling them. The chapter about Laurie and her husband cooking together had me in tears from laughing so hard! Great book!

Love Laurie

There is no such thing as a bad Laurie Notaro book. Loved that she is her own narrator for this.

Nothing new, funny or clever here

What disappointed you about Housebroken?

Not original, not funny, not clever and the narration was horrible.

Would you ever listen to anything by Laurie Notaro again?

No.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She helped distract, but the book was horrible on its own merits.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Unfortunately NO!

Terrible Audio!!

Any additional comments?

I am halfway through this book and I am writing this review on the basis of the Audible file, only. The sound/audio on this book is awful. It sounds like it was recorded in the author's bathrooms and closets. This is the first Audible book purchased that I had this issue with!

Pure Enjoyment with Secret Life Lessons Tossed In

I laughed, I cried. I laughed until I cried. The narration makes it truly great.
