Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Knox | 2/16/2014

    " Funny because it's true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda | 2/5/2014

    " A nice easy read, enjoyable and full of amusing anecdotes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/1/2014

    " This was a quick read and quite enjoyable one. Though I'm not a guy it was humorous to hear tales of breaking up [some true, some obviously exaggerated]from the male perspective [Less anger than I thought] . A great little read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 2/1/2014

    " The most cathartic I've ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 1/26/2014

    " Quick, mostly funny (except Colbert's chapter, what a waste!) book about ridiculous relationships told pretty much exclusively by men. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryce | 1/16/2014

    " A weak collection, without any real humor or insight. Doubly disappointing, because Karlin had assembled such a good group of comedians, writers, and other artists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 clare | 1/14/2014

    " At first I was like, "oh, how cute. Men are sensitive and insecure etc." Eventually I found myself thinking, "Where are your huevos?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 1/13/2014

    " Most of the stories are hilarious or disturbing... Or hilariously disturbing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 R M | 12/7/2013

    " only read a few chapters while in a bookstore. yeah, that good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 10/6/2013

    " Excellent, smart, funny book. The authors are witty, and tell great little stories in quick, entertaining essays. Highly recommended to all who want a light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirk | 10/1/2013

    " Amusing book...quick read...did I learn really anything...no...did I laugh...yes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 9/30/2013

    " Some of the stories in this compilation are hilarious, others fall flat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Tan | 9/28/2013

    " This book reminds all the ladies that not all men are insensitive cheating bastards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara | 9/1/2013

    " Cute book! Fun to read, quite funny stuff. Patton Oswalt's article was my favourite, though ^_^ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 5/24/2013

    " For what the book wanted to achieve this book was very funny. Laugh out loud funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 7/25/2012

    " An absolutely hilarious read. There's really no depth to it at all, haha, but it's a hilarious collection of essays by celebrities and well known writers who reminisce about the "good" times of being dumped, betrayed, cheated on and completely consumed with young love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucille | 4/21/2012

    " This book has already made me laugh out loud a few times and I'm not even half way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seth | 3/30/2012

    " I'm comfortable with gimmicks. And some of the stories (most notably, Dan Savage's "I am a Gay Man") were funny. But, am I a little resentful that I didn't write this (or, at least, get to contribute)? You bet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher Meyers | 3/13/2012

    " Hit and miss, but when it hits it is powerful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon Black | 1/13/2012

    " Surprisingly (or not surprisingly) the most sexist essay was by Dan Savage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 1/12/2012

    " Some really funny stories. Not all, but a few really choice reads. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hannah Messler | 10/27/2011

    " Eh. I'd hoped this was going to be hilarious and insightful, but all the humor was pretty much the same thing all the way through--low-grade irony and drab self-flagellation. Buncha weinerdogs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Marie | 8/17/2011

    " It starts out with a bang; essays from well known comedians; stars of the screen. These essays made me laugh out loud (in public, no less) yet faded to the end. Definitely worth reading, but I wouldn't suggest buying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/8/2011

    " A good, funny, easy book to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chelsea | 5/18/2011

    " There were a couple of okay essays, but on the whole they were very bland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 3/21/2011

    " For what the book wanted to achieve this book was very funny. Laugh out loud funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances | 1/5/2011

    " I loved this collection of short stories! It is a great, funny book with stories from many fantastic story tellers. It was one of those books that I really tried to savor, but it was so good that I ended up reading it really quickly! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 1/2/2011

    " Uneven but still funny. A smorgasbord of comedians and writers who, at the heart of it all, are amazed and befuddled by women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 10/19/2010

    " An outstanding collection of essays chronicling some famous (and not so famous) first-hand accounts of ended relationships. Not all the essays are a hit, but all feel honest and are worth the read. Funny and somber at the same time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 10/16/2010

    " These were funny stories, good for reading on a plane. I particularly liked the Patton Oswalt and was excited to see David Rees in this compilation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 10/7/2010

    " I wanted to love this but I just kind of liked it. I mean, tons of short essays by men who have been dumped. Sounds fun, right? It was pretty good. I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edwin | 10/3/2010

    " I enjoyed the book over all, but the quality of the stories was uneven. Definitely worth reading though, for the stories by Neil Pollock, Larry Wilmore (even of both of those guys' stories were a little off subject), Stephen Colbert, David Wain, Patton Oswalt & Rodney Rothman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 9/16/2010

    " Can you laugh about a breakup? Yes absolutely, especially when the story is insightful, smart and funny. This collection of short stories on crushed love and being dumped is a fresh, fun shot of creativity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 8/30/2010

    " A collection of short essays on the topic of relationships. They range from flat to funny, but it's relatively free of misogyny. "
