Book Review: Jeneration X by Jen Lancaster

I'm a huge fan of Jen Lancaster's snarky sense of humor and hilarious essays, so it was a given that I'd pick this one up when I saw it available at the library.  The unifying theme of this collection is adulthood - all of the tasks associated with being an adult (paying a mortgage, getting a mammogram, making investments) that Lancaster, along with my of her readers, I'd assume, has always put off.

I think Lancaster is a master of humorous essays, particularly for those who share her irreverent sense of humor.  And by irreverent, I don't mean that she's insulting to any particular group of people, but she's definitely not afraid to share her opinions on polarizing topics.

Jeneration X lives up to the standards she set in her earlier books (Bitter Is The New Black; Bright Lights, Big Ass; Pretty in Plaid; My Fair Lazy).  I recommend giving it a try, unless you're offended by occasional bad language and off color jokes.
