Audio Quality patchy

I'm not loving some sections of the audio due to quality of recording. The book has great moments i think i'll get the physical book to finish.

Exactly right

If you love the podcast, you'll love this. It's all about the two women who make us laugh, cry and feel less alone. Less murder, more vulnerability. Loved it.

An Absolute Must Read

worth every second. As a long time fan of MFM, it was so wonderful to hear two amazing women be so open, honest and genuinely encouraging, and then have a little spice of true crime mixed in. I recommend this book incredibly highly, I enjoyed every moment.

Story started good but.....

I thought the first 15-30 minutes into the book was very interesting but afterward it became repetitive. Giving it a 2 stars because the story did had some potential.

Good with some jarring audio

Great book but there are some sections recorded during live shows which are jarring because the audio sounds so different.

it's wonderful. I hope they write another book!

It is a wonderful book. it takes a minute to get used to the different feel, but then it's so nice hearing these heartfelt stories told by two of your favorite people (and Paul Giamatti). oh and a cameo by Marty! 😄 I definitely cried more than once. I'll be listening many times for sure! SSDGM

loved loved loved it!

I'm sad it's over, I loved it so much. It felt I was with my friends, listening to their stories...just like their podcast. The book was insightful, delightful and so relatable. I hope there will be a second book. I love you Karen & Georgia! You have no idea what a difference your podcast & book has made to my life!

Amazing

I never knew I could feel like I was a part of something so amazing, although I live in South Africa and it seems so far away I feel a deep connection with Karen and Georgia and all the wonderful murderinos! THANK you for your honesty and your vulnerability with the deeply personal things that sometimes seem to be too scary to share! You guys are amazing

I cried most of the way through but in a good way

Upfront I’ve gotta say: if you don’t love Karen and Georgia or their podcast or their accents then this isn’t for you. (I mean you should think about that because they’re objectively wonderful but that’s between you and your therapist).

I loved the references to their famous quotes, and how their anecdotes linked so cleverly to each chapter. I love that some of the parts are recorded from live readings, the audience being there feels a bit like the live show podcast episodes and I love it.

I respect their vulnerability, honesty and ability to share the sides of themselves that don’t make them look good. But sharing those things actually makes me know they are GREAT because they’ve put vanity aside so that we can all relate and feel better about the shitty parts of ourselves.

Anyway. I bought it yesterday and have listened twice so what more can I say?

Nothing new here

You won't really learn anything new from this book, I was hoping for more memoir and less self help. It's fine, it's pretty much just what you get on the podcast and stories you've already heard.

This book is everything!

Karen and Georgia have created a space in which mental health, fascinations with the macabre, being vulnerable and making mistakes are all okay, and are bringing more people to the table to show who they are and what they stand for. I’m so proud to be part of this incredible community of listeners, and the book reflects what they stand for entirely.

Brave, beautiful, funny, emotional, and unashamedly themselves. Thank you Karen and Georgia for sharing your vulnerability with us and for giving us an insight into your own experiences; leading the way to show other badass women that you can do anything you put your mind to!

Bravo ladies, bravo!

Loved this booked. Listened to it in 1 day. You've both written something funny, personal, entertaining and special. Which, no pressure, is exactly what we've all come to expect from your general brilliance. Thank you

Exactly right

Genuine, hilarious, nostalgic and deeply relatable, this audiobook was a perfect listen and a must for any listeners of MFM. Georgia and Karen reading their parts of the book themselves made this audiobook extra special due to the personal and vulnerable topics covered. Karen’s witty play-by-play of a typical latchkey kid afternoon made me laugh and talking about her mother and dementia made me cry and call my mum just to say hi.

Honestly Charming

As a longtime listener to the podcast, I decided to venture into the world of Georgia and Karen as they tell their story to the world. Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered is a very honest glance into the minds of the two personalities. We learn more about their past and the stories they’ve told on the show. They give us a glimpse into their thought processes and ways of thinking. When put together we get a very honest, often fragile view of their minds.

Karen and Georgia do a wonderful job of telling their story. Karen really captures the emotional parts meanwhile Georgia shines in hers. One of the highlights for me was hearing the couple of live readings to an audience - it just added another layer to appreciate.

I really enjoyed the book overall and I’m glad I can say that this is my first Audible purchase!

perfect

This book, like the podcast, is the perfect mix of comedy, true crime and self healing. With stories of strength through adversity, relationships and much more, this is book is like a unintentional self help book for people who hate self help! Once again these two casually knock it out the park.
