In this first memoir, Shane shares a number of a anecdotes about his life, from going to senior prom, working at a weight-loss company, the death of his grandma, and his senior high school musical. He's not afraid to lay all the memories and emotions out on the table, and between the hilarious commentary and jokes, there's a serious tone to the stories he's telling, one that doesn't always make an appearance onscreen.
As a fan of Shane's YoutTube channel, reading this book was a lot of fun and really interesting. I actually listened to the audiobook, which Shane narrates, and it made the experience a lot more enjoyable. Shane has a really interesting way of telling stories and talking about his life, adding a lot of humorous commentary, even when the story is far from being funny.
In the past, I've said that YouTuber books can easily be read by those who have no idea who the YouTuber is - this is definitely not one of those books. If you're a fan of Shane, I really recommend it. If you're not, or don't know who he is, I wouldn't bother picking it up. It's definitely a book where you need to have some idea about who is writing it, their humour, and the way they tell stories. While I really enjoy his story telling and writing style, it's easy to see how people could misunderstand what he's saying and the joke behind it.
This was a really enjoyable read, and if you haven't read it already, I definitely recommend it. I'm really excited to see what he talked about in his second book It Gets Worse, and if there are any more stories he's willing to share in the future. A perfect read for Shane Dawson fans.
shane is an excellent writer and YouTuber and Instagramer and I think you spell it twitterer anyway this dude has talent (including knowing almost every swear word) have you seen his cheets to survival (hilarious). Anyway back to the book I'm not the swearong type so I rate it a 3 out of 10 for people 10-23. describing it would be great funny immature and easy to relate to.
