'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?

I loved this book, it was interesting and witty start to finish. I laughed out loud at times, I didn't want to turn it off.
If this had been a 4 or 5 star book.
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.
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.
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.
Just bad - if you're looking for laughs, avoid.
Embarrassing ly, I'd never seen Any Schumer on TV or seen Train wreck before I read this book. I liked the sound of the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. It had me laughing out loud and touches on subjects I didn't expect: gun crime, domestic abuse and MS. It was really insightful, exploring issues of gender equality in Hollywood, comedy and film making.
This Woman has a serious lower back problem...JK JK . Funny enough to keep you going till the end. Amy can do another movie of her funeral alone....... Sometimes wrong sometimes right but always funny so its alright.
I really enjoyed this. particularly hearing Amy's words as she intended them to be read. It's funny as expected but also goes into the more serious aspects of life.
I enjoyed this book, and I had a few moments where her insight struck a chord with me, and made me realise, wow that happened to me too and I thought I was a freak!
Amy has a soothing voice and coupled with a simple straight from the heart narration makes this audiobook uniquely magnetic. It is like hugging your favourite pillow when going to bed.
I was a bit worried this audiobook was going to be too hearted with constant jokes all the way through... I was happily proven wrong. This was a very honest and interesting book, with definite laugh out loud moments but Also very serious ones. I loved it and couldn't stop listening!
I loved Amy's autobiography which I found candid, surprising and light even during some of the heavier chapters. Amy seems to have a hopeful outlook and voice that I really enjoyed listening to, and her story made me reflect on how much time I put into making myself and others laugh and enjoy life. I liked this book even more than I might have because I had thought I had purchased it a few months ago (when I had accidentally bought Amp Poehler's book instead) - oops! Both books v good!
"A heartfelt, funny and moving story by a strong woman!"
Absolutely loved every second of this book and took some serious life lessons from it, loved the humor and touching stories! I feel it has somewhat changed my outlook on life in some ways and have recommended this book to all my girlfriends. Thank you
"Laugh & cry out loud !"
I love this book!! I think Amy has so many gifts!! I laughed out loud so many times! And I surprisingly cried during the end of chapter Mom! I made notes of words of wisdom to pass on to my teenage nieces!! I think if you like to laugh , cry & smile this is the book for you!! Thxs Amy!
"She is better live"
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.
