I was so excited to read this book when I saw the title and read the back of it. I can only imagine how I would react if I found out one of my ex's wrote a "fiction" book with me as a main character, telling deep and intimate details of our relationship. Luckily for me, the longest thing most of my ex's have written is a grocery list, and they were lucky if they could even finish that.
I had so much hope for this book. Don't get me wrong, it was a great book. Funny, witty, honest, with just a hint of "I swear I'm not bitter" bitterly thrown in. It just seemed so....... drawn out. I understand explaining her relationship arcs over the years, to show how said boyfriend came into her life and how his leaving affected her. But it all seemed too much. At times, it seemed more like she was bragging about conquests than showing us what that book did to her life. I went into this book thinking it would show her relationship with said ex, her discovery of said book, and how that all affected her. Instead, I got an itemized list of every set of male genitals she has seen in her life.
I wound up so much more invested in the life of her cat than in her life.

Judging by the flaky, shallow, white-trash persona of the Hilary Winston character presented in this piece of "low-life" non-fiction fluff - I, for one, would certainly like to read the book that her ex-boyfriend apparently wrote about her. I really would.

'Cause not only did Winston manage to paint an extremely unfavourable picture here of all of her many ex's - But, in doing so, she also succeeded in presenting herself as being one of the most despicable, two-faced bimbos in existence on today's American frontier, bar none.

Written with the annoying mindset of a 13-year-old airhead - Hilary certainly struck me as being one of those irritating, redefined, emancipated female writers of this day and age who try so desperately to sound so adorably cute, so wickedly slutty, so cleverly bitchy, and so highly sophisticated all in the same stale breath - And, in doing so, they all fail so miserably.

And, of course, when it comes down to Hilary's relationships all falling apart - (As is always the case with all of the Hilary-clones out there) - It is always-always-always the fault of (guess who?) the men (natch) every single time..... Sheesh!... Spare me, already!

Funny and light, but amusing.

Actually, I think her ex-boyfriend was Chad Kultgen and the book is called "Average American Male".

Her boyfriend is Tucker Max. He also wrote "I hope they serve beer in hell" which after reading, I don't know how the hell that guy even managed to be in a relationship for 5 years. His antics are disgusting

Funny at times. But I want to know who the boyfriend is.

I really enjoyed this book but I was expecting a few more laughs (although still quite funny). It is written very well, yet an easy read. I really admired her honesty and some of her "issues", which are very relatable. If you ever fear you are going to become "the crazy cat lady", Hilary will make you feel a lot better about the situation haha! I would definitely recommend it to any woman 18-35. Great read filled with laughs, triumphs, and disasters!

Hilary Winston had a boyfriend, and when they broke up, he wrote a book. The book was supposed to be fiction; however, she discovered when she picked the book up in a bookstore one day that it most definitely was not completely fiction. In fact very intimate details of their love life were published there for the world to see, not to mention the fact that he refers to her as his fat-a@$ed girlfriend! Hilary, a writer herself on the sitcom Community and formerly on the series My Name is Earl, decided to get even with said boyfriend by writing a book of her own, and her book would be decidedly non-fiction.

This book made me laugh out loud--it also made me blush. Hilary gives a no-holds-barred account of her life as a single woman in Hollywood in all its glory-- and shame. Crazy cat lady or swinging single? You will have to decide for yourself! Fans of Sex in the City or the movie Bridesmaids might enjoy this honest, hilarious memoir.

Hilary is hillarious! I cannot imagine nonchalantly finding a book about me in a book store and OH! the things they could write. Hilary has her revenge though.
