It was an easy, enjoyable, and entertaining read - finished it in less than 2 days. I pretty much want to get all my friends copies for their birthdays/Christmas. Whether you're familiar with Chelsea's writing or not, I definitely recommend it for every young adult. You will learn a few things and laugh a lot while you read. And maybe even shed a tear or two in the final paragraph of the last chapter.
I adored Chelsea's writing from Thought Catalog. This book arrived in my postbox this morning and I'm already on chapter two which is pretty good for a slow reader. What really surprised me though was the fact that instead of dragging myself to bed to get as much rest as possible before another day at my minimum wage job I was inspired to redo my cv and actually go through with a job application! We both started creative degrees not long before the jobs market collapsed and it's truly refreshing to read her no BS attitude to getting on with it and her honesty in wanting childish things and to be lazy at the same time.
While a somewhat entertaining read, I felt it didn't really give much in the way of advice at all. There is a fair bit of humour, which was good, and some reflections on the typical first world millennial experience of today which were written in an amusing manner -- however, the advice was rather spare. The insights (things such as 'it is good to have interests outside of drinking/partying' and 'you should budget and save money') seemed pretty common-sense, I guess. For the record, I was a 21-year-old undergrad student when I read this and frankly it didn't provide much that I didn't know already (this is not meant to sound incredibly arrogant, although I acknowledge it might anyway).
All the same, I acknowledge that this book might be useful to some, and usefulness of advice aside, it's a light and entertaining read, although I can't help but feel that it reads a bit like it was too padded out with Thought-Catalog-listicle-style humour/fluff and not enough substance for its length.
Don't get me wrong, I like Chelsea as a writer, but this book just didn't really do it for me. Buy it if you want an extended read that's more witty reflection/observation on the early twentysomething life, but not for an actual 'complete guide to reluctant adulthood'.
