Every now and then -- no, every now and every then -- I need to remind myself that my problems seem major only when I fail to compare them to the REALLY BIG STUFF that can and does happen in this world. I recently got a copy of 50 DAYS WORSE THAN YOURS (through bookswap again) with the intention of sending it to a friend whose troubles consistently press my guilt button because my woes are fewer and smaller than hers. If she published a memoir, readers would call it fiction and praise her dark,
This is brilliant. It will take you as long or a short time as you have although it probably depends whether you are reading this anywhere near another human being because if you are I promise you that you will drive them quietly insane to such an extent that if they ever hear the words ' oh good grief you so have to hear this one ' once more they will knife you. This does add a few minutes to the reading experience. It is such a simple but clever concept. Each day has its positives, negatives,
There were a couple references to price points ($3 for gas or $3 for a coffee, something like that) that the author HAD to know would not age well. I don't know why this irked me as much as it did but yeah it bothered me enough that this is the first thing in the review. Other than that it was extremely mediocre.
Neither hilarious nor outrageous. Took about 20 minutes to read. A book should take longer to read than it takes to earn the money to buy.
I re-read this yesterday after being flat on my back for a week after picking up one box too many, which resulted in an ambulance, ER, IV, and narcotics & am now hanging out on a website about books because books are the heaviest things I can currently lift. Helped me gain perspective & made me laugh.
It an easy page turner. The book allows one to reframe one's day by looking through others' worse days, including everything from pimples on Prom, hunting with Cheney, or a Bris.Out loud laughter funny.
funny book,nice for a day to pick your self up
Not as good as I thought but not bad, good convo starter or coffee table book.
