Amy Schumer – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

Review

First off, I listened to the audio book that was done by Amy Schumer. I would highly recommend the audio over the regular book as Amy’s well-honed timing is a true art.

Listening to this book was like eating a gallon of chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream. The ice cream is cool and refreshing, but it is really those tastey treats of candy sprinkled throughout that makes the dessert delicious. Did I mention that I’m lactose intolerant? So after eating the entire carton or reading her book, I vowed to never listen to her comedy routines in the future. I had more than enough of Amy Schumer. However, there were enough of those candy bites or humor to warrant a rating of 3 stars.

Her overuse of the word footnote started causing me to have an involuntary tick.

A couple of highlights included an explanation of her IQ and an incident with Men’s Health magazine. She explains that when she took an IQ test she tested as a genius in half the categories and incompetent (something to that effect) in the other half. After listening to her book, I would have to agree with her intelligence assessment. She can be an amazingly well spoken individual. The way in which she deals with an awkward situation with Men’s Health magazine demonstrates her high intellect and gift with words.

The Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and star of Inside Amy Schumer and the acclaimed film Trainwreck has taken the entertainment world by storm with her winning blend of smart, satirical humor. Now, Amy Schumer has written a refreshingly candid and uproariously funny collection of (extremely) personal and observational essays.

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is—a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh.

Ranging from the raucous to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing, this highly entertaining and universally appealing collection is the literary equivalent of a night out with your best friend—an unforgettable and fun adventure that you wish could last forever. Whether she’s experiencing lust-at-first-sight while in the airport security line, sharing her own views on love and marriage, admitting to being an introvert, or discovering her cross-fit instructor’s secret bad habit, Amy Schumer proves to be a bighearted, brave, and thoughtful storyteller that will leave you nodding your head in recognition, laughing out loud, and sobbing uncontrollably—but only because it’s over.
