Hey Ladies!: The Story of 8 Best Friends, 1 Year, and Way, Way Too Many Emails Reviews
Je veux effacer ce livre de ma mémoire pour pouvoir avoir le plaisir de le relire et le redécouvrir ad vitam aeternam. J’ai tellement ri et j’ai tellement eu envie d’enfoncer la tête d’Ali dans une grosse poubelle, c’était si bon.
Literally screamed at the end. Gracie!!!
Reading this book was like watching a marathon of Real Housewives: you can do it compulsively, but you sort of feel icky about yourself during and after the whole debacle. The book was easy to finish - I read it at a sprint - but the whole experience actually made me nauseous.
I get it. This is humor. Maybe even poorly executed social commentary. But while it had brief moments of being relatable, everything was portrayed on such an exaggerated scale that it was all just cringe-worthy. These wome ...more
This is a delightful and funny book with wonderful illustrations. It's about eight 20and 30 something female friends, who email and text each other about planning engagement parties, wedding showers, brunches, trips, dating, and breakups. Although these friends can be snarky with each other, they are supportive and well intentioned. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and you will too!
This book was really refreshing and good! I had heard some hype about it, but I was nervous because it's written in all e-mails and text conversations, not a linear story with one voice. I was scared I wouldn't be interested or able to keep up with the eight voices/characters, but it was a fun, cute read! Not any type of great literature, but I checked it out from the library (free!) and blew through it - very quick, and pretty funny. Probably more relatable for some women than others, but I thi ...more
Holy crap. I can't remember the last time a book made me laugh so much. I'm genuinely excited for friends to get engaged so I can buy them this book. Also, considering the ending, there better be a sequel.
If you're a Millennial woman and you've ever been on an email chain lasting more than 10 emails, you will eat this up. I could pick out so many people I've known over the years - the one who demands "just let me know what you all decide!" and then, when told the final plan, wants to change it. The one who demands everyone follow her plan, regardless of how inconvenient it is for everyone else. And of course, anyone who's repeatedly cancelled plans to hang out with some dude or insisted on bringi ...more
Like another reviewer, I stayed up way too late so I could finish this book. I was a huge fan of the Hey Ladies column at The Toast, and the book is amazing. It's absolutely hilarious, and it builds on the original column in smart and funny ways. There are text messages in here! You get introduced to Helene, one of the Ladies' moms! And there are side plots and intrigue and ... it's just wonderful. I laughed out loud repeatedly.
