Review for Wow, No Thank You

Review for Wow, No Thank You

Wow No Thank You, Samantha Irby, Essays, Non-fiction, Humour, Memoir, LGBT, Samantha Irby, Bunny, Green BackgroundSamantha Irby is back again with new essays featuring sex, bodily fluids, marriage, and more.

I just adore Samantha Irby and her voice so I was excited to see a brand-new book by her featuring another cute animal, this time an adorable bunny that just had me reach out and want to hug it. Of course I had to pre-order it so I could read it whenever Amazon decided to send it to me.

In this one we have a whole lot of new essays to read. Featuring marriage (and hilarious questions and Irby’s answers but also talk about her wife and children), bodily fluids (but we all know that she writes about that a lot), how to publish a book/get a show (which was very much fun to read and I laughed), about your body (and how much effort you really have to do to get it perfect), cats and dogs, going partying, about her past. And there is more. There were a few parts that had me cringing (some of the sex parts especially those about anal and then there was the period chapter). But there were also parts that were relatable and tons of parts that had me giggling and laughing.

I am glad that we saw some more of her life with her wife and the kids. We read so much about herself and her past and what she does and it makes me happy we see another important part in her life. Hope this makes sense, sorry, really tired but still want to write reviews.

I skipped one chapter after 3 pages and that was the Sure, Sex is great chapter. Which just got annoying and boring after 3 pages. Not to mention that I just forgot what the previous sentence was.

There was just one thing that was a bit of a shame, and that was that the book felt really slow and at times I just got a bit bored, normally I get through a book this size in a few hours, but now it took several sessions and also some motivational Netflix to get through it. I still very much enjoyed reading the book but I am just sad that I had a hard time getting through it.

But all in all, I would recommend this book to all and I cannot wait what Samantha Irby will write about next.

Star rating, 4.5 stars

  1. Wow, this is one of such book that wouldn’t be in my radar cause the details don’t match the rabbit on the cover, I hate slow book it usually take of motivation and determination to finish one.

    1. Haha, yeah her books all have cute animals and then some serious life stuff going on in the book itself. I generally hate them as well, but this book is quite rewarding in the end to make it worth the struggle. Thanks for commenting~
