Can't believe this got published. Has to be just because of her career

What a fun, quick read!
Marx's writing is honestly hilarious and Chast's artwork compliments the narrative.

How many stars is an 'eh' as opposed to a LAUGH RIGHT OUT LOUD?

Unfortunately, in my opinion 'Why Don't You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It?: A Mother's Suggestions' is a great big, weak 'EH'. It didn't wow me, it didn't make me laugh . . . or giggle or barely chuckle. I found it mildly amusing. Frankly I think the best part of the book, the most amusing part of the book, is the title.

2 stars - with mild (eh) disappointment.

For every mother. For every daughter (or son). It's a short, short book so don't buy it but check it out at your local library!
