I’m pretty picky when it comes to humour novels. Comedy is so subjective that I don’t even check reviews when picking out such books because it’s just too difficult to rate. There are many popular humour books that I absolutely hate, luckily this was not one of them.
I often have a hard time with female comics(I know I know I’m betraying my gender) but seriously I just don’t find most female comics funny. There seems to only be one available subject for these women and that is sex(usually going on and on about what a “big whore” they are…Amy Schumer I’m looking at you).
What I enjoy(and what this book delivers on),is the other less popular but still entertaining subject of “bad mom humour”, and I must admit that I am a sucker for this.
This book was really funny and better than I thought it would be. It’s not quite at the level of How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane: And Other Lessons in Parenting from a Highly Questionable Source but it’s still a barrel of laughs. I would definitely recommend this, and you don’t need to be a mother to enjoy this book.
I look forward to checking out this authors other works. Overall I would rate this as a buy.
Pst: This book contains lots of swears.
