Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler
After watching Chelsea Lately a few times (definitely less than ten) and always finding a reason or two to laugh, I decided to try reading one of her books. With the title play on one of my favorite books back in my younger days, I decided to go with Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea (2008).
Huge mistake. I didn't laugh, not even once, while reading the book. I cringed a few times, though I expected to do that because Handler seems pretty irreverent and equal-opportunity snarky on the episodes I've caught of her show.
I also kept turning back to the cover. Who approved this photo? She's a lovely woman, and this photo bugs me because (a) it doesn't look like her and (b) the open mouth looks silly. If you're beautiful, shouldn't you aim for photos that look like yourself for your books?
Has anyone read anything else by Handler? Is there something you considered at least relatively funny that I should try?
