Powerful, painful, ultimately inspirational memoir. I'm a relatively recent fan of Cho's, and had no idea there was so much pain in her past. After reading this, I appreciate her talent and her success all the more.

I love to listen to Margaret Cho on Pandora: Women in Comedy and watch her on DVD....

I like her views on life, her honesty & her fight for humanitarianism... She is right on and bluntly honest.

Apparently, however, I do not like reading her books. This is the 3rd I've read and the 2nd I didn't like. I was thinking about this last night and I was comparing my dislike of reading her work to my reaction to Andy Rooney's books.... Which was/is the same. I love the sound clips & the visuals, but reading them is tediously boring for me....

I find watching & listening them both enjoyable & funny, but not reading them..... It is like an overdose of birthday cake.

There was one other thing that peeved me, There was a great quote by Jerry Seinfeld comparing Margaret Cho to Richard Pryor, but is was wrongly attributed to some newspaper on the back of the cover....

What she says in her book, is the same as her stand-up routines, they are funnier in her live voice than her voice in my head....

A comedienne narrates her life.

I listened to this version of Margaret Cho's life, as an unabridged audiobook, read by the author. I liked that the author narrated it herself, especially when she impersonated her mother, but her male voices were painful.

I enjoyed the early part of the story the most; Margaret was a loner, picked on by the other children for being different, but she told her story without sounding overly sorry for herself. Unfortunately the second part of the book was Margaret's story of excessive drink and drugs and there was a distinct note of misery and self loathing, which quickly became irritating. This section was also too long - too many tales of drinking, partying and doing drugs, where a few examples would have done.

It was interesting how a child with no friends found a place for herself in comedy, in deriding the very things that had hurt her most in life. I had to respect her for that, even if her style of comedy is not to my taste. This book was published twelve years before I came across it and, judging by her appearances in YouTube, her career has progressed considerably since that time.

Listened to this on audio, and oddly enough, as Cho is such a terrific live performer, her reading really fell flat. It seemed as though she were reading someone else's work and not her own. As I was listening, I kept thinking to myself "This would really be so much better as a blog..." In the conclusion, she explains that they do actually come from her blog.

I see that some other reviewers really rated this low because they were expecting 6 discs of her stand-up routine. Having read the back of the box (and well, the TITLE), it was pretty obvious that this was a politically-oriented work. She makes absolutely astute observations, and is very open about where her philosophy originates. I came away with not only a new understanding of Margaret Cho, but an even greater appreciation of her. Had I read it rather than listened, I would most likely have given it the full five stars.… (més)
