Chunk, This is Chunk.

Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

Written by: Chelsea Handler

Released: March 9, 2010 by Grand Central Publishing

Summary: The hilarious new book from the star of Chelsea Lately and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea.

Get ready for big laughs as Chelsea Handler lets loose with more comic personal essays, from growing-up stories of discovering "The Feeling" during a third-grade sleepover and getting screwed by her parents during the Cabbage Patch craze, to grown-up tales of dealing with a sister who's off - and by "off" she means Mormon.

Chelsea never lets anyone off the hook, even herself, as she delivers page after page of irreverent humour, biting wit, and deliciously off-kilter entertainment.

I don’t think that I’ve laughed so much during a book than I did with this one. Seriously, I thought that I would wake up the neighbourhood at three in the morning while I was still reading this book last night because I could not put it down.

It’s a series of essays/stories that, to be honest, I have no idea if they’re complete lies, slightly untold truths, or blatant elaborations but I also don’t care. This book was hilarious, witty, and downright fun. Sure, I could have easily stopped at the end of a chapter since they don’t really relate to each other, but I didn’t want to, pure and simple.

I don’t know what else I can really say about this book since it’s not really fiction that follows a set plot line, but if you can you should really read it. However, it might not be suitable for a younger audience since it deals with a few adult situations and language. To be frank, at times it’s incredibly vulgar… but I just found those bits really funny.

If you’re able to, and can stomach everything about it, I say go and pick up a copy of this book. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… ok, you’ll laugh. But still, it’s more than worth it. Which is why I’m giving this book a 10/10. Amazing.
