Two for two on surprise book back to back. First Kris Jenner, and now Amy Schumer.
So I originally intended to read this book and get it off my shelf because I kept seeing the cover and being like ‘UGH. Amy Schumer! Stop fucking staring at me.”
But what I ended up with was a well written book about her life and I came to actually respect and life her as a person.
I’ve never really liked her stage show, I don’t know why. I think sometimes I think it’s enough with the vagina jokes. (Guess I have to be in the mood for that.)
I’m not a prude when it comes to hilarious and gross and out there jokes, sometimes she gets a really good laugh from me.
But I was thinking that I was about to read a book that read like her comedy sketches go: Over the top and trying too hard.
What I got was slap in the face with the reality of who she is.
Which is that she’s not just her onstage persona. Whaaaat?! That happens?! She can be quiet and reserved? Who knew. (Sarcasm guys. I know that people aren’t always what they seem or portray to people on stage.)
This book has ended with me feeling for Amy Schumer and hoping that she has a great life and career and can actually DO something about gun control.
She’s great. And I wasn’t expecting to like this book, but she got me.
She really got me.
