We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.: Essays
We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.: Essays | Samantha Irby
Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a dumpster fire. With We Are Never Meeting in Real Life., bitches gotta eat blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an art form. Whether talking about how her difficult childhood has led to a problem in making adult budgets, explaining why she should be the new Bachelorette she's "35-ish, but could easily pass for 60-something" detailing a disastrous pilgrimage-slash-romantic-vacation to Nashville to scatter her estranged father's ashes, sharing awkward sexual encounters, or dispensing advice on how to navigate friendships with former drinking buddies who are now suburban moms hang in there for the Costco loot she s as deft at poking fun at the ghosts of her past self as she is at capturing powerful emotional truths."

My current audiobook. Irby's essays on topics such as love, weight, and depression sometimes straddle that #borderline between painful hilarity and hilarious pain. @cinfhen #MOvember

Cinfhen I listened to this one!! Some are very funny others not soooo much but I agree/ it‘s all done with a humorous tone and subtlety! 3w
merelybookish @Cinfhen I agree! Some are definitely funnier than others! I did laugh pretty hard at the one about her cat Helen Keller. 🤣 3w

I wish I had listened to you Littens earlier, because you were so right - this book is SO GOOD!! I loved every second of it! It was wonderful on audio, read by the author. It was such a great perspective (I wanna be Sam Irby‘s friend) written in such a funny, honest way.

Reader, if you know me at all...then you know I have very little interest in non-fiction 😆 (unless it‘s Tudor related) but this BOOK got all the stars!! Not only was it downright HILARIOUS, it was so down to earth and relatable (especially if you grew up poor, but even if you didn‘t) she also tackled some serious personal issues that I was not expecting in such an approachable way. Consider me on board for anything this lady writes!😃♥️🎉

This gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me for the humor. Irby is hilarious. However, I think she and I are about as different as two people can possibly be, so there wasn‘t a lot of room for me to relate to her life experience. I had a hard time building that bridge. But she‘s funny and I love her cat, so I‘m glad I read it.

AlaMich She‘s amazing! She used to work in my vet‘s office, back when she started her blog. She‘s super nice too! 4mo

I feel like the author and Lizzo should get drinks at a dive bar in Reno. Personal essays are personal! Some people will love them and others not so much. But I ❤️ her raw humor and self effacing commentary. It‘s relatable and honest and comes across as genuine and underneath it all - kind. 👏🏻 hats off to SAM!

#30JuneBooks - Laughter: When searching for a book for this prompt, I realized that I have far more books that made me cry than made me laugh. I really need to hang out in the humor section of the bookstore more often or search out authors who know it‘s okay to laugh at yourself.
This book made me laugh before even opening... the cover is hilarious 🤣 and perfect for the content.

Samantha Irby is one funny lady! I found her writing hilarious and heartbreaking and unflinchingly honest. Towards the end I did get a bit of memoir fatigue (generally speaking, memoirs aren‘t my thing, so there‘s some inherent bias there), but overall I liked this one.

Samantha touches on subjects from spreading her father‘s ashes in Nashville to the fun of working in an animal clinic and everything in between, all with humor. This was definitely deeper than I thought it would be.

I liked some bits of this and didn‘t like others. I know from the title it wasn‘t going to be all sweetness and light, but I suppose I thought it would be more light-hearted. It took a long time to read too, which shows that maybe I struggled with it. Oh well, onto the next book!

6/10 Good read overall, written like the author is having a conversation with you. There are a lot of abrupt topic changes which don't follow any discernible timeline, which made it a tough read for me. If you can keep track of everything, pretty good read. If you get distracted easily this book will be very difficult to read.

Fair warning: SO vulgar and raunchy. If you‘re down for that, this book is absolutely hilarious and deeply sad. Sam Irby copes with her abusive childhood, loss of two parents, chronic depression, physical disability, dysfunctional relationships, loneliness and love with biting, inappropriate (occasionally uncomfortable) humor.

My inter library loan came in earlier this week, just in time for my snow-afternoon. I was choosing which book of my library haul to start with and then I read this: “sometimes you just have to laugh, even when your life is a dumpster fire.” Since I used these exact words earlier to describe me week thus far, I think it‘s meant to be! 🔥😂

suzisteffen Really enjoyed this collection of essays. Samantha Irby is wonderfully forthright and also hilarious. 10mo
whatsthEStorey @suzisteffen I really like her writing style. Forthright is a good word for it! There were a couple stories where I laughed really hard and a couple that made me tearful. 9mo

I have mixed feelings. Some parts were super funny, and I appreciated Irby‘s candor in sharing some of the more challenging parts of her life. She discusses the realities of poverty and racism, and living with depression and chronic illness. Like many funny people, the humor comes with a certain amount of darkness. But it‘s just a bit too raunchy for my taste. LOTS of sex and language to wade through.

According to the 84% pick on Litsy I‘m going to have a super unpopular opinion on this book.
Irby‘s brand of humor isn‘t for me. I didn‘t find much funny in this book at all, I may have laughed twice. It turned into a bit of an anger/rage read toward the end.
Her humor just isn‘t what I find funny. So this is a pan for me. Everyone likes different things.

The book got more serious and mature as it progressed but even the serious things had a touch of humor behind them. Had to read it at home because it made me laugh out loud, though mostly the quiet-trying-to-keep-it-to-yourself kind. Overall, an enjoyable read.

Almost hilarious. There was lots here that I thought was super relatable and funny, but some that was just slightly off for me. I listened to the #audiobook, perhaps print would have hit differently.

While it wasn‘t a perfect hit for me, I know I can be picky/ “judgey” with my #audiobooks I can see it being a pick be for others.

Your Aunt Rachel here (probably how the author would describe me) may not be the target audience for these essays — and sure enough I found some of them too crude, snarky or ill humored — but somewhere around the ‘Happy Birthday‘ essay, Irby and her unflinching, brutally honest style grew on me and truly, I love her now. #BlackHistoryMonth

I‘m not sure I like it. I‘m only 30 pages in so I‘m not giving up yet. There were a couple of laughing moments, but mostly I‘ve been underwhelmed by her writing and the stories. I‘ve heard great things about this book so I really want to give it a fair go.

Blerg. Let me just say, first and foremost, essays and memoirs are not my thing. I rarely enjoy them. Humor is also very subjective. There were one or two moments that I found truly laugh-out-loud funny, but most of it was sad and depressing. It may even have been more sad and depressing because of how much I related to. I also found her use of profanity to be excessive and distracting. #lmpbc

Kayla.Adriena Fair enough! I found her hilarious and I have a potty mouth so maybe that's why I loved it so much. Sorry it wasn't up your alley ! 😿 11mo
DGRachel No worries! It‘s always good to stretch out of one‘s comfort zone, this was just a bit too much of a stretch for me to really be able to appreciate it. 😉 11mo
Kaye I‘ll have to say I agree. I think I have trouble relating to a lot of younger authors , either due to subject matter, language , or just the fact that lots of the stuff they write about are things in my distant past that I‘m not much interested in revisiting. I can also cuss like a sailor when I get mad , but this book seemed a bit too raw for my taste. Not saying no one else should like it. Just , it‘s not my thing. (edited) 11mo
