Publisher's Summary

'2016 Best Audiobooks' selection, AudioFile Magazine.

The highly anticipated first audiobook from award-winning comedian, writer, producer and actress, Amy Schumer.

In The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy shares stories about her family, her relationships, her career, good - and bad - sex, recounting the experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (and boys) to becoming one of the most sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women's rights.

Whether she's experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport, discovering her boot camp instructor's secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father's multiple sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining storyteller. Her audiobook will move you, make you laugh, catch you completely off guard, and answer this burning question: is it okay for a 35 year-old woman to still sleep with her childhood teddy bears?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Very disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by Amy Schumer or narrated by Amy Schumer?

    No


    Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No


    What aspect of Amy Schumer’s performance might you have changed?

    The book needs changing rather than her performance which was ok


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I was a huge fan of Trainwreck and persuaded lots of friends to see it, but this must be the least funny book by a comic I've read. Maybe Amy's intention was not to be funny but if so the book's marlketing is at fault as is the jokey title - a pun on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amy makes some worthwhile points about the poor messages given to young girls by the media, about sexism on the standup circuit (and business generally) and about gun control. However overall the book is just dull and full of pointless lists - for example in a list of Things I Hate Amy lists the Big Bang Theory (the TV show not the theory but apparently can't be bothered to give us a reason for the hatred.

    "Not Funny and WAAAAAY too serious"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this had been a 4 or 5 star book.


    Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No i've read some great books from this genre. Amy Peohlers Yes Please, and Tina Fey's Bossy Pants being two of the best. This one was just bad, boring, rambling, hypocritical, serious and sad.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Schumer?

    She was as good as anyone for this book I suppose, though I found her serious and on the verge of tears moments especially grating.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that the book didn't really meet expectations. Mild anger at some of the hypocritical nonsense spouted about aspects of sexual relationships between men and women. Uncomfortable with some of the stories. Sad far far too often for the autobiography of a comic.


    Any additional comments?

    Just bad - if you're looking for laughs, avoid.

    I listened to 7 chapters and found Amy sounding very shallow and self appreciating. I would get my money back if I could....

    "Overrated"

    To be honest I think this book is so overrated. I was so bored listening to it. The story is all over the place, and at points very pointless. Listen to Tina Fey or Lena Dunham for a good autobiography.

    "Love her!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo to be better than the print version?

    Yes :)


    What does Amy Schumer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I felt so much closer to her as a human and author.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me laugh out loud and ugly cry during my commute. She is such an amazing, strong and funny woman. Thank you Amy!

    "Lost interest"
    What disappointed you about The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo?

    I thought it would be an interesting read or at the very least laugh out loud funny but she lost me on the chapter about her stuffed animals...


    What was most disappointing about Amy Schumer’s story?

    Not overly funny or interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Schumer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Stopped listening after an hour so cannot comment.

    Not sure why I bought this book as had never really heard of Amy before but it was excellent thoroughly entertaining both funny and emotionally charged in equal measure, the author is clearly talented with a perfect outlook for life - loved every minute of it

    Most of this same out sad and dry to my ears. I did enjoy the stories and she makes some very fine points on growing up and making the normal human decisions that shape us into who we are.
