I can't recommend this highly enough. Hysterically funny and cuts right at the heart of what it is to be "not normal." Furiously happy. ( )

Thank Goodness I did not spend forty-five or thirty-five dollars for this NOT hilarious but sometimes just funny book! This was really a slow read, I was so happy I finished it in only six days. ( )

I don’t often shove a book in my husband’s face and say, “Here! You MUST read this chapter right now!” Any time I have attempted this before, he groans and shoves said book out of my face. There aren’t many books that I’ve read that strike me as books he would particularly enjoy. But, while reading Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, I did this no less than 10 times. 10! And each time, he laughed too (which was very reassuring) and agreed with my declaration that Jenny, the author, and Victor, her husband, represent the two of us in five to ten years.

There have been a few books, fiction mostly, where I have identified with the main character to the point where I declare, “me too!” (not in the present #metoo sense, but in an I-can-thoroughly-relate-to-what-you’re-saying sense). But this definitely falls into the same category of Hyperbole and a Half where I feel like I’m reading a slightly altered account of my own life. My father was a builder, not a taxidermist, I grew up in Pennsyltucky (rural PA), not rural Texas, but I also am the messy one in my marriage, met my husband in college, say things out loud at social gatherings that I really shouldn’t, and have generalized anxiety disorder, though my panic attacks are mostly triggered by driving.

As Jenny writes, these things make me human, and they make me, me. And now I know that there are far more people like me than I previously thought. If you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh out loud and that you can thoroughly relate to, look no further than Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. ( )

DNF. I skipped ahead and read chapters out of order, in hopes that it got better. The chapter where she has anxiety at a Halloween party was illuminating. I too have this habit of blurting dumb ass stuff out, then realizing how it sounded to others and wishing I could die. I am able to stop it there, where poor Jenny continues blurting out dumb ass stuff even though she knows it shit. That has to be horrible to feel inside. I have a top 10 list of dumb ass stuff I said that I can't forget.

I thought the book was fun at first but quickly dragged on. She does a stream of consciousness thing like it is a comedy routine and I really don't like it. ( )

This is the funniest book I have ever read! I did not stop laughing from the minute I picked this book up. It was literally laugh out loud funny which got many strange looks from people in the room.
This book is not so much a story with a beginning middle and end but more a series of hilarious short stories from throughout her life. Some people may find the swearing offensive and I would skip the chapter about her dog dieing unless you want to cry a lot.
This was a great quick summer read that lead me to follow her blog. ( )

I want to thank everyone who helped me create this book, except for that guy who yelled at me in Kmart when I was eight because he thought I was being "too rowdy." You're an asshole, sir.
This book is a love letter to my family. It's about the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us who we are today. I've reserved the very best stories of my life for this book... to celebrate the strange, and to give thanks for the bizarre. Because you are defined not by life's imperfect moments, but by your reaction to them. And because there is joy in embracing—rather than running screaming from—the utter absurdity of life. I thank my family for teaching me that lesson. In spades.
