#Review: Is It Just Me? Or Is It Nuts Out There? by Whoopi Goldberg #AdultBooks



Summary:
Have you noticed people aren't as polite as they once were or that rudeness is no longer an exception but a lifestyle? Sure you have. All you need to do is set foot outside your door to see that bad manners are taking over everywhere. Just look and you'll see:

  • People yak on cell phones in restaurants, and even at church.
  • Folks in carpools wear enough cologne to make your eyes bleed.
  • Family outings to the ballpark are ruined by rowdy drunks.
  • People talk in movie theaters like they are in their living rooms.

Well, Whoopi Goldberg has noticed all this and more and asked herself, "Is it just me?" Unleashing her trademark irreverence and humor, her book of observations takes a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us.

My review:
I will start by saying, I like Whoopi Goldberg, I think she is funny, I had read another book by her and...it was funny. This one on the other hand is simply not funny; although, I think she may have meant it to be.

What this book is however, is her thoughts on everyday life. (Given, this book was published in 2010) How our society has become a bit crazy to live in. It seems nobody cares or wants to talk about it but she does and did in this book.  I get it. I understand where she is coming from! Why no humor though? sigh...it was her chance to put her unique spin on the oh, so obvious that no one wants to say.

Still she wrote it, it is out there and upon reading it you cannot help but  think, yeah, why is that?

Overall, I suppose I like the book but just wished the Whoopi style had been upon the pages.
3 stars.
