Random chaotic ramblings of Amy Schumer
I really didn’t care for Amy Schumer’s crude humor so honestly, I have no idea why I even picked this book up but I think it has a lot to do with the title — it’s hilarious! And, it may have something to do with the fact that no other book appealed to me during that month’s book of the club selection so by order of elimination — I ended up with this book.
Jokes aside, I’m glad I read it — I like her so much better now that I know more about her. She’s real and keeps it real in her book, putting her entire business on the line from her parent’s infidelity to her one-time one-night stand to loving her body. She takes these otherwise serious topics and pokes fun at them.
What I especially liked about this book and what really blew me away is that she’s using her fame as a podium to actually try to make an effective change in the world (see last chapter in the book on pushing for gun safety measures). How many people out there — who have a huge following — are actually using their fame for good? Not many so kudos to you, Amy. Keep on, keeping it real.
In terms of recommending this book, I wouldn’t say I loved this book and Tina Fey is to blame for that. Her book, Bossypants — to this day — is the best book I’ve read by a comedian. Amy’s book holds its own, worth a scan, just to give Schumer a chance.
