Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Opening with a cute story from when she was seven and photographed her parents having sex, stand-up comedian Handler goes on to discuss the virtues of the one-night stand, which amount to having sex early enough so you're not months into a relationship before you discover he's into "anal beads and duct tape." She discusses her quest for sex with a "black man," which doesn't work out because the date she finds on has a penis so large, she "would have had to be the size of the Lincoln Tunnel to accommodate that thing." After him, there's a "little midget," but she sobers up before sleeping with him. Next come a number of would-be partners with penises too small to consider. Finally, there's a guy Handler does sleep with, only an embarrassing incident involving a "giant skid mark" prevents her from seeing him again. By the end, Handler considers settling down with one man, which might actually net her more sex than these mostly unconsummated one-night stands. Anyone who laughs at the mere mention of vaginas and penises may find Handler's book almost as much fun as getting drunk and waking up in some stranger's bed.

Revue de presse

"If the name Chelsea Handler doesn't mean anything just yet, it will shortly. The girl's going to be huge... Has to be the funniest and most candid book about shagging ever written by a woman" (Henry Sutton Daily Mirror)

"A rib-tickling affair that will leave you doubled up in no time... Do we love her tales!" (OK! Magazine)

"Chelsea Handler is my new best friend - she writes like Judy Blume, if Judy Blume were into vodka, Ecstasy and sleeping with midgets and nineteen-year-olds. I laughed out loud and read parts to my husband, my best friend, and my Mom (which might have been a mistake). This book is no-holds-barred hilarious" (Jennifer Weiner)

"In a word: hilarious. In two: absolutely hilarious. These are some of the funniest stories I have ever read... Chelsea Handler has perfect pitch" (Laura Zigman)

"Enjoyably naughty sexual memoir of a New York-Jewish stand-up comedienne" (Laurence Phelan Independent on Sunday)

Chelsea Handler nous fait part de toutes ses aventures d'un soir.
L'ensemble est facile à lire, certains passages sont très drôles, d'autres moins mais le rendu est très dynamique et écrit avec beaucoup d'humour.

Un bon livre d'été à lire sans se prendre la tête!

I loved this book. It made me laugh out loud many times.

I would definitely recommend it. I have read multiple books by female comics in the last year and I think this and mindy kaling's book are definitely the funniest.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Un peu vain... 28 avril 2010
L'auteur est une habituée des comedy clubs américains et a publié plusieurs ouvrages à teneur autobiographique qui ont connu un grand succès. Celui-ci est un recueil de souvenirs de "one night stands" ("histoires d'un soir), rencontres fortuites et alcoolisées dont la vertu comique m'a échappé. Il en ressort surtout une grande vacuité, que ne rattrapent pas quelques réflexions intéressantes de-ci de-là. Pas grand chose à en retirer, selon moi.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Some funny vignettes, but there's an "ick" factor 1 novembre 2008
Par Kenneth Simon - Publié sur
This is a vacation read -- something I wouldn't normally pick up, but it was sitting there, and I was headed out to the beach to suck down some tropical concoction in the sun. So, why not?

Chelsea Handler has written an account of one-night stands that she has experienced. The cast of characters is interesting, and sometimes bizarre, and the situations range from laugh-out-loud funny to irritatingly off-putting.

I enjoyed it sporadically, as much as I simultaneously found it offensive. I don't know how much the author has embellished, and how well she's hidden the identity of some of her subjects, but I'd sure be sorry if I showed up in her book! She's rather merciless and shallow, a hedonist who wants to have a good time and doesn't even try to spare the feelings of men who, er, aren't up to the task. I'm trying to imagine a book written with genders reversed, where a man takes a woman home from a bar, only to reject her in the bedroom because of, say, her breast size. Eeyuck.

It's also a shame that Handler thinks that hedonism is cool when it extends to being an alcoholic. No, she doesn't label herself an alcoholic, and maybe she's not one. Maybe she's exaggerating things for comedic effect, but if that's the case, the unintended consequence was to make herself out to be a happy drunk.

That said, if you can accept the author's total pursuit of her own pleasure (her feeble attempt at the end to portray this as a phase coming to an end doesn't really ring sincere), the book does have some pleasure to offer the reader as well, with a couple of very funny predicaments and sexual disasters.

If you want a few sexually-charged laughs, you could sure do worse than this book. And it was okay as a vacation read. That's as far as I can go in recommending My Horizontal Life.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Hollow Life 8 juillet 2008
Par David Smith - Publié sur
I've casually enjoyed Chelsea Handler's TV show for some time. She's witty and clever on television, so I thought her book would offer more of the same. Unfortunately, this book changed my perception of Chelsea, and once I finished the book I came away from the experience feeling I wasted my time. Chelsea's experiences really do seem like aimless recollections of a shallow existence. As another reviewer pointed out, her memoir reads like a series of Sex in the City scripts minus the fashion. Unfortunately, Chelsea often comes off as pretentious, vapid, and morally bankrupt. I kept hoping the narrative arc of the book would reveal some growth and personal reflection. Instead, the book continuously chronicled Chelsea's nihilistic existence. Sure there are some humorous moments, but they are too few. Many of Chelsea's recollections focus on her insatiable desire for sex and a general contempt for those who aren't physical specimens. In an attempt to be funny, Chelsea's lack of compassion for others (i.e. her roommate or fellow booze cruise passengers) simply reveals her hollow character. There's little redeeming quality in Chelsea's memoir; for those looking for self-deprecating laughs, a much better choice would be among the works of Laurie Notaro.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not funny at all, a serious waste of time and money 18 décembre 2009
Par J. Davis - Publié sur
I bought this book at Borders from their "buy one, half off the second book" collection. I should have known that there was a reason Borders was trying to unload it that way. I have a raunchy sense of humor so I figured from the title that this would be a good read. Wasn't looking for War and Peace, just some funny stories. Boy, was I disappointed.

These stories are not funny. They are each a study in how to act like a trailer trash tramp and be boring doing it. For these stories to be funny, it would help if the reader could somehow identify with the narrator and see the irony of the situations she gets herself into. Unfortunately, I have never been a drug-addled, sex-obsessed loser who thinks other people exist to serve my needs. When she ridicules the only person laughing at her stand up comedy routine, it becomes clear she doesn't actually like anyone unless she's high, drunk and horny. She's not an endearing drunk or a decent storyteller. She's mean-spirited, prejudiced self-centered and worst of all, not funny.

Spare yourself the 30 minutes of reading it will take to figure out that this book does not deliver on the promise of the title.

I heard about this book and thought it would be a fun read so I downloaded a sample cahpter to my Kindle. It was really quite funny but I didn't realize it was more of an introduction than anything else. Having been entertained I bought the book.

Within an hour I called customer service for a refund. The actual book was nothing at all like the intro. That is to wasn't entertaining and it wasn't particularly funny. Actually, as some other reviewers have ws really quite pathetic. Do I really care how many people she screwed just to keep her numbers up. I couldn't make it through the first chapter after the intro (and I was expecting it to be funny like the intro)....dull and not really much story. There is a lot of much better material out there, humor and otherwise, to spend time on. Pass on this one!

My opinion of the author has most definetely changed while reading this book. On tv she comes across as funny and I was expecting the book to come across as such as well. Was I wrong. This book was one of the most disturbing things I have ever read. I like humor books and enjoy the occasional sex "review" but this was just plain wrong. She comes across as a total brat who cares nothing about herself, her body or her reputation. She is constantly drunk throughout most of the events in the book and has many drugged up nights (ecstasy, etc). It is absolutely and immorally wrong. I can't believe that I read the whole thing. It was a complete waste of my time and even though it only cost me 5 bucks I wish I hadn't of spent it. If someone thinks their past sex life is funny-all the power to you. But to flaunt about going into a gynecologists office solely to get him to sleep with you then to find out he's gay and screwing a guy in a boat while you stand in the door and watch?! Really? I pray to God half of the crap in this book didn't happen. Otherwise she has no value of self worth.
