In My Horizontal Life, actress and stand-up comedian Chelsea Handler boldly recounted her one-night stands-the good, the bad, and the disastrous. In this wickedly honest new work, she casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date—including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo. Whether it's a vacation with her dad during which he tells airline staff they're a honeymoon couple in order to get an upgrade, or her elaborate attempts to convince her third-grade classmates that she's starring in a Private Benjamin sequel, Chelsea lets it rip in these relentlessly entertaining essays. Displaying the candor and irresistible turn of phrase that have earned her a recurring stint as a correspondent on The Tonight Show as well as her own E! series, Chelsea Lately, this deliciously skewed collection is a guilty pleasure.

Funny. At times, I felt that she was trying too hard. Not funny to laugh about rape. The self-deprecating bits were definitely more enjoyable.

I listened to this audio book on the drive from Columbia to Chicago. The author, Chelsea Handler, narrates "Are You There, Vodka?" herself. She had me peeing my pants! Handler's other book, "My Horizontal Life" is read by a professional and is significantly less comical. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it, especially to anyone who enjoys a good misadventure or is familiar with Chelsea Lately.

Chelsea Handler is a comedienne and actress who focuses on writing about her life. This book looks at Chelsea's relationships with men, her family and friends. She shares stories about being pulled over by driving intoxicated, taking her father on vacation and being taken by a midget con-woman.

Handler embellishes the... stories and mixes in her sarcastic, crude sense of humour. And believe me, she has a potty mouth that a sailor would envy. Handler is not Anne of Green Gables, but you can't help but like her. She turns this eye on both others and herself. No one is safe from her, at times, selfish, self-centered diatribes. I laughed outloud more than once.

The book on CD that I listened to was read by the author, further enhacing the experience. Her delivery was geniuine, and as a reader, I had no trouble visualizing what was happening.

Worth the time, but do not listen to this near the little ones or easily offended.
