When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends?

When she is speaking in generalities about life on the road or after a breakup or whatever it may be, I found myself drifting a bit.

In hindsight, I guess some things are better left unread, l Rant Review From An Avid Broad City Viewer: I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson I was over the moon excited when I found this was out in the world and also low-key mad that I wasn't informed earlier of this release. I love Abbi Jacobson and her work, but this book was a bit uneven. This hurts me to write.

How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? She nails down so many specifics that had me nodding along. Was it safe for a woman? The sketches add so much to the book.
Reading about the creation of Broad City and meeting Ilana and discovering their mutual love of comedy was empowering. After reading nearly three chapters, it dawned on me pretty quickly. Though I enjoyed learning about Abbi being a boss and discovering her sexuality, I can't say that I recommend this audiobook. In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections--all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike--readers will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and, ultimately, inspiring journey. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

I limited my sketches to pencil and for each one, I knew this piece of paper will be in the book. I'm not sure I've ever related to a stranger as much as I've related to her in this. Broad City is one of my all time favorite shows. Jacobson asks more questions than she answers, which is as it should be. I said that to say this: I am now a huge fan of Abbi Jacobson. Intimate, and yet entirely unnecessary. They are barbarian watchmen against the Outer Dark, bloodied but unbroken in their long duty.
Like her do's and don' ts when it comes to her three-week road-trip. It was a mess and not perfect and all mine. I was expelled from the university at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I really enjoyed the parts where she spoke about her step dad, mom, and Ilana. In a world where everything is so damn performative, Abby's voice isn't clear, nor is it fresh: it's one of a rambling, borderline obsessive overthinker.

In the end, I just wish the author would've spent more time talking about herself, rather than wasting so many pages on unimportant details and scenarios that never came to happen. That selfsame voice screaming at us about that one time we mispronounced a word in front of our crush in eighth grade when we're now 35 and it's 3:32am and wehaveameetinginfivehoursfortheloveofallthatisholy! It is a golden age of discovery and conquest.
