I love to dish and gossip just like any other youngin out there. So at first I was digging the raucous accounts of debauchery. But the more you read, the more shallow and repetitious the stories become. I also found some of her accounts to be simply too insensitive to be funny. I didn't finish the book because I didn't need to.

More crude than I was thinking it would be (although with a title like that, it was my own fault for having those expectations). It was funny at times, and as I got used to the risque and brash way in which it was told, I enjoyed the book more. Still not positive that I would recommend it, but I guess if you are a fan of Chelsea Handler and her other novels (which I will admit, I have not read yet), then go for it!

If you don't want to read a book about a lusty, liberal hedonist, then don't pick this up. Seriously, who are these reviewers who hate the book because they don't like who it's about? You only have to watch Ms. Handler's show once or twice to find out that she is over-the-top ridiculous, which is why I picked read it in the first place. No one is safe in Chelsea's life, including herself, which is why it's so easy to laugh at her experiences.

I enjoyed this book the most of Chelsea's. She stuck pretty much to sex-related escapades gone wrong. While her later books have humorous reflections on her family, real relationships, and friends, My Horizontal Life doesn't derail from what its title indicates, which I'd think is what most semi-intelligent readers would guess as the subject matter, and that's the dirty stuff I was in the mood to read.

I'm by NO means proper or righteous or judgmental when it comes to carnal self indulgence. I approached this book expecting it to be clever and candid, which in parts, it was. But after a while it became really trashy and cheap. I would feel the same way if such exploits had been penned by a man. I'm sure the author has made a nice bundle appealing to a certain target audience.

A very entertaining and easy read. Chelea's writing is direct and her chapters are fast paced. It's a quick and light read, good for a laugh.

I love Chelsea's raw take on sex. If Tucker Max can do this and society lets him get away with the same amount of outrage nonsense (plus his exploits got him a movie) then why are people in such an ire about her? She writes in her telltale way and like her show she keeps me coming back for more.
