Product description

Product Description

The Little Book of Bitchy of Thoughts is medicine for the Modern Age, straight from the cauldron of Elizabeth Fairlight. The author serves up a stinging philtre of pithy observations, acrid humor, and even the occasional honest aphorism.

Quotes from the book:

If your child says, “Hey, lady,” to get the attention of a sales clerk, you're lower-class. If your child says, “Excuse me, Ma'am,” then you're middle-class, or higher. This is an infallible indicator.

'Washington, D.C. is the third-world capital of a first-world country.'

'Opera is only vaudeville with attitude.'

'I'm always amazed by admonitions to love thy neighbor. Once God wises up to the fact that not everything on this Earth is worth loving, he would become a smarter God. It would be better to say, 'love thy neighbor, if thy neighbor is worthy of it.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Laughs and Enlightenment 20 February 2012
By Shannon L. Yarbrough - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Anyone who has enjoyed the wit and sarcasm of such greats as Oscar Wilde or Groucho Marx will definitely enjoy Elizabeth Fairlight's The Little Book of Bitchy Thoughts. It takes a certain intellect and, of course, a smart sense of humor to be able to read it and appreciate it the way it was intended.

There are numerous quotes divided by such subjects as youth, class, fools, adulthood, marriage, children, lawyers, arguing, the arts, places, makeup, science, sports, drugs, and age. Enough to keep your toasts at parties witty or your email signatures baffling.

Rather than being rude and untactful, almost all of the quotes make you stop and really think about it, long enough to want to reread it a few times or even commit it to memory.

My favorite is a longer quote about writing: Writers who do what they're expected to do-namely get their MFA, then stay in the university system to teach and produce literary fiction-will always write timidly. If you're a writer, supporting yourself with odd jobs is better for you, but not just because you acquire more interesting source material. It's important because what it indicates about your personality. Independent writers live and write with greater courage, and they create greater works of art because of that courage.

Only available on Kindle at the time of this review, Fairlight's Bitchy Thoughts is worthy of a look if you need some laughs or even some enlightenment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick Thoughts That Bring A Smile 21 April 2012
By Sandra Iler Kirkland - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Little Book Of Bitchy Thoughts by Elizabeth Fairlight is a compendium of sayings to give the reader pause, to make them think. This is a book to pick up and read when the reader has a few minutes and wants something to reflect on. The book is organized into topics with thoughts about each category. Here are a few of my favorites, although it probably says more about me than the book:

On Music
Opera is only vaudeville with attitude

The Arts
Spare design is for the emotionally autistic

On Religion
Most Southerns are Baptists because the Baptist religion allows you to live a life full of sin, but lets your repent on your deathbed. Many Southerners would never get to heaven otherwise.

On Taxes
Do you know what poor is? Reaching the age of 40 without knowing when taxes are due.

On Writing
Writers with talent need to avoid reading James Joyce's Ulysses the way a flawless skin needs to avoid smallpox.

On Mountain Climbing
So what? You climbed up. You could do that on a ladder and clean your gutters while you're at it.

And my favorite:

On Adulthood
To hell with grace under pressure. Give me effectiveness under pressure.

This is a fun book, one that can be dipped into when the reader needs a quick lift. This book is recommended for readers that don't take life that seriously and are quick to appreciate humor.

1.0 out of 5 stars was not what I expected 16 September 2013
By June E - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was short and dull, not even memorable. I suggestion if the title peeks your curiosity just go borrow it from your nearest library don't waste the cash or even if it's free it's not all that as far as literature goes.

A few funny comments. Really wasn't what I expected. Not very entertaining and mostly common sense commentary. Really wouldn't read it again.
