Audiobook Review: I Was Told There'd Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosley


Since Crosley wrote both of these books and I listened to them within a month of each other and have the same basic opinions on both, I thought I'd kill two books with one review.  These are books of humorous essays about Crosley's life as a single New Yorker, relating eisodes fom her childhood, travels, and career.

Obviously, since I listened to both books, I find the author hilarious.  She narrates the audiobooks herself and she does an excellent job.  Her sense of humor and style are perfect for me - she's witty and dry and sarcastic, but also able to laugh at herself. 

Humor is always hard to review because you either find the author funny or you don't.  I think if you like Jen Lancaster, Jenny Lawson, etc. you'll also like Sloane Crosley.  As a word of caution, she's got a bit of a potty mouth and has some crude stories, but nothing that had me clutching my pearls.  Like I said, if you like Jen Lancaster and Jenny Lawson, you'll probably like Sloane Crosley.
