Product Description

Shut Up, You're Welcome ANNIE CHOI HATES MUSICAL THEATER. SHE THINKS SANDWICHES ARE BORING. She likes camping, except for the outdoors part. At fifteen, her father made her read the entire car manual before allowing her to sit in the driver's seat. Her neighbor, who has no cur-tains, is always naked. And she once chased down a man who stole her handbag. All this is to say that Choi is one part badass and one part curmudgeon, with a soft spot for savage bears. Mostly she wants to ask the world: WTF?! Written in Choi's strikingly original and indignant voice, "Shut Up, You're Welcome" paints a revealing portrait of Annie in all her quirky, compelling, riotous glory. Each of Choi's pe...

Hilarious, as always 18 July 2013
By John Corcoran - Published on
Format: Paperback
Annie Choi is absolutely hilarious. Whether she's writing about alpacas or her family, or a pet peeve, it is always very witty and entertaining. She's one of the funniest writers writing today - at least as funny as David Sedaris.

This book definitely shines. You'll love it.

'Shut Up' is Too Funny 12 July 2013
By Allison - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've never heard of Annie Choi, but after requesting this book from NetGalley I started to see her all over the place. I can understand why - she's sarcastic, funny, and her family is just as hilarious. The problem is that she is almost too funny. And so, while I recommend this book, I don't recommend that you read it all at once, like I did (which is why I'm erring on the side of `caution' and giving it 4 stars rather than 3).

The book is set up in a unique way in that each chapter begins with a "Dear _____," letter to someone or some company. It's snarky and funny, with a smattering of foul language that doesn't detract from the overall story. Then comes some anecdote from her life, whether it's a family trip to the Grand Canyon or her four days without clean underwear.

To be honest, I really don't have a lot to say about this book, so I am going to send you over to her blog, instead. The content is hilarious, and if you don't read all of it at once and give yourself Annie-overload, I think you'll have a good laugh.

But what about you? Have you ever read a book that should be spread out over a few weeks?

Loved her First Book, Not this one 21 Oct 2013
By sherry williams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yes she was very funny here and there. I found there was WAY too much "Day dreaming scenarios" I didn't like the Dear..........Parts. Not real, not that funny, because it was as though she was making up stuff trying to be funny. Did enjoy the actual REAL parts with her very funny family. I found myself skipping over all those BLA BLA parts.
However I LOVED her first book. I laughed out loud all the time. Loved her Mother's Korean/American vocabulary.
I feel this book, she was hard up for material...Hard to top the first one....

Mark Twain was the Annie Choi of the nineteenth century 9 July 2013

Annie Choi is the funniest writer in the galaxy, and "Shut Up, You're Welcome" is as funny as "Happy Birthday or Whatever." I peed so hard I laughed my pants.

SHOULD BE CALLED ... 31 Dec 2013
By John-damien C. Huntley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Buy me and read me right away. This is the 2nd book I own from this up and comer. For anyone growing up in the valley, a lot of Choi's stories really speak out about what it's like to grow up in this environment. For anyone who didn't grow up in the valley, this is a great way to learn about a very real experience of growing up in this context.

Great for a trip, even better for a bedtime read.
