So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y’all Don’t Even Know by Retta

Reviewed by Emily Terasa (Library Staff)

Retta is an actress and comedian who’s probably best known for playing Donna Meagle on the hit TV show Parks and Rec. This book was hilarious, I mean laugh out loud funny. You have to listen to the audiobook version, because Retta reads it, which just makes it even more wonderful and hilarious. She tells stories of life growing up, going to Duke University (aka the Harvard of the South), being on the set of Parks and Rec, and how she became a hockey super fan. I’m not sure I have ever enjoyed an audiobook as much as I enjoyed this one. With Retta reading the book, it was like she was in the room or car with me, telling me stories or giving me my own personal comedy show. As Donna Meagle would say, Treat yo self and listen to this audiobook today!
