Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated first audiobook from award-winning comedian, writer, producer and actress, Amy Schumer.

In The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy shares stories about her family, her relationships, her career, good - and bad - sex, recounting the experiences that have shaped who she is today: from the riches to rags story of her childhood to her teenage quest for popularity (and boys) to becoming one of the most sought-after comedians on the planet and an outspoken advocate for women's rights.

Whether she's experiencing lust at first sight in the queue at the airport, discovering her boot camp instructor's secret bad habit, or candidly discussing her father's multiple sclerosis, Amy Schumer proves to be a fearless, original, and always entertaining storyteller. Her audiobook will move you, make you laugh, catch you completely off guard, and answer this burning question: is it okay for a 35 year-old woman to still sleep with her childhood teddy bears?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Enjoyable."

    I really enjoyed listening to Amy's story. It is genuine and real. Made me smile several times and it was also touching. Thanks for sharing, Amy :).

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I had laugh out loud moments and a couple of teary moments in this book. I love Amy and it was great to learn about her family and life growing up.
    I was disappointed when it ended!

    I love Amy's standup and show. But this book is painfully boring.
    This will be the first audiobook that I ask a refund for.

    "Absolutely phenomenal"

    I am in awe of Amy Schumer after listening to this book. Emotional, raw, funny, honest and reap is everything I would use to describe this.
    What I thought I was going to get (funny stories) vs what I did get (humanly honest stories about her life and an unedited authentic and raw recount of her life) had me hooked from the first word.
    She is so incredibly relatable that I have become a massive fan, because, well.. who else has the balls to tell these kinds of stories and still laugh at themselves?
    I have no doubt her and I would be besties if we met!
    If you only buy one book this year, it needs to be The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer. 5 freaking incredibly amazing stars!

    "No Holds Barred."

    In typical Amy style this look at her life and early career journey is hilarious and in your face. What surprised me is that at times it was also heartbreaking. Amy is obviously an exceptional talent, but here she is also searingly honest, and opens up about dealing with sexual assault, domestic abuse, a traumatic family life, and coming to accept and live herself regardless. Wonderful to hear it read by her also.

    "So much more than I thought it would be"

    Honest, refreshing, candid and full of humour. Highly recommend reading especially if you are a woman and want a relatable yet not overly triggered spin on challenges that have happened in life.

    I didn't really know much of Amy Schumer before listening but have deep appreciation of her now.

    "Meh. Could take it or leave it."

    Touching and funny in places, and definitely well narrated by the author.

    But I can't help but compare this book to Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's autobiographies and feeling it came up a little short.

    It was definitely not a total write off.. But it wasn't as inspiring. Just more of a classic take a true autobiographical account of her life to date, humorous enough and very very candid.

    "Easy listen"

    If you're a fan you'll probably enjoy. Good insight into Amy's life and obviously cathartic for her to reflect on her experiences thus far. My friend who read the physical book did not like the writing style but as an audiobook was easy listening.

    Most of this same out sad and dry to my ears. I did enjoy the stories and she makes some very fine points on growing up and making the normal human decisions that shape us into who we are.

    "Very disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by Amy Schumer or narrated by Amy Schumer?

    No


    Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No


    What aspect of Amy Schumer’s performance might you have changed?

    The book needs changing rather than her performance which was ok


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I was a huge fan of Trainwreck and persuaded lots of friends to see it, but this must be the least funny book by a comic I've read. Maybe Amy's intention was not to be funny but if so the book's marlketing is at fault as is the jokey title - a pun on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amy makes some worthwhile points about the poor messages given to young girls by the media, about sexism on the standup circuit (and business generally) and about gun control. However overall the book is just dull and full of pointless lists - for example in a list of Things I Hate Amy lists the Big Bang Theory (the TV show not the theory but apparently can't be bothered to give us a reason for the hatred.


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "Not Funny and WAAAAAY too serious"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this had been a 4 or 5 star book.


    Has The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No i've read some great books from this genre. Amy Peohlers Yes Please, and Tina Fey's Bossy Pants being two of the best. This one was just bad, boring, rambling, hypocritical, serious and sad.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Schumer?

    She was as good as anyone for this book I suppose, though I found her serious and on the verge of tears moments especially grating.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that the book didn't really meet expectations. Mild anger at some of the hypocritical nonsense spouted about aspects of sexual relationships between men and women. Uncomfortable with some of the stories. Sad far far too often for the autobiography of a comic.


    Any additional comments?

    Just bad - if you're looking for laughs, avoid.

    To be honest I think this book is so overrated. I was so bored listening to it. The story is all over the place, and at points very pointless. Listen to Tina Fey or Lena Dunham for a good autobiography.

    I enjoyed listening to Amy. Wish she was my friend, she is very funny without feeling like she is trying too hard or creating fake stories to make her life seem more interesting. She is also honest and talks about serious stuff as it is relevant to her life. What I like the most is that she inspired me to relax a bit more and dont take life so seriously. Thanks

    "Empowering, funny and gritty"

    This book was hilarious, dark, honest and empowering. I would recommend it to anyone who's doubted themselves, made mistakes, needs a good laugh, and isn't offended by swear words and sex talk. The honesty Amy writes with about her life, mistakes, personality etc is inspiring and very reassuring. And the narration is brilliant.

    "Brash, rude and opinionated - but entertaining"

    I didn't find it laugh out loud funny though entertaining enough. Would recommend as kept my interest but got annoyed in parts by how defensive Amy is about looks and weight (she mentions this a lot) and feminism and sometimes gets into rant about this. Plus she mentions sex a lot. Plus lots of swearing. But whilst other books can lose my interest she kept me wanting to listen.

    "A fantastic exploration of a woman's life"

    This book felt so incredibly and painfully honest and I often hurt on behalf of the author however it remained an uplifting and funny story showing that there is always light amongst the dark. I loved the focus on woman's issues amongst other things, it showed issues in an unavoidable light and I wish more books could do that. This book was also wonderful in that the author explored her "flaws" although I'd rather say she explored her humanity. There seemed no attempt to wrap up things in a tidy bow, they simply were as the are and I appreciated reading that. I hope there are future books so we can continue to explore life together.
