Goodreads:  Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever.

On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure.

The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side-except for the time she loses him in Telluride.

Kritters Thoughts:  I am well aware that Chelsea Handler specializes in crass humor and I am a fan, you may call it a guilty read!  I had never read a book that she had written and was always intrigued, so when I saw the ecopy on NetGalley, I thought this was the perfect time!  I was not disappointed.  

I loved how she was honest about her travels, but there were still a few moments were I could not decide if she was telling the truth or stretching it!  I may have read the book in a few public places and had to keep my laughter inside, which was very hard!  If you are in need of a break from your normal reading schedule (like I was!) then this is a perfect vacation.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Ebook 2014 Challenge: 25 out of 100
