Description

From stand-up comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish comes The Last Black Unicorn, a hilarious, edgy, and heart-wrenching collection of autobiographical essays that will leave you laughing through tears.

Tiffany Haddish grew up in one of the poorest parts of South Central Los Angeles. Her mother wound up with a debilitating brain injury after surviving a car accident. Tiffany never fit in anywhere: not in the households she rotated through in the foster care system and certainly not at the nearly all white high school she had to ride the bus an hour to attend. As an illiterate ninth grader, Tiffany did everything she could to survive. After a multitude of jobs, she finally realized that she had talent in an area she never would have suspected: comedy. Tiffany faced the 'routine' hindrances of climbing the entertainment business ladder - but had the added obstacles of sex, race, and class in her way. But she got there. She's humble, grateful, down to earth, and funny as hell. She still cleans the toilet the way she was shown by a foster mom who worked as a maid, and she still rolls her joints the way one of her foster dads taught her.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: It's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Definitely raw and good!

Definitely raw and good!
I've been super happy as the content, having watched some shows and performance of this great Lady, ...was true format to be expected! ;-)
In fact if the content was differently presented ("polished") it wouldn't be as good.
Also I listened to the book and Tiffany is really funny!
Had some tears showing up as I ve been really surprised by ...
Sorry can t tell what.
it is a good unconventional book.
Go girl!
"She ready!"

Interesting...

I saw her first on The Daily Show, and I thought she was hilarious. I copped this book think it'd be funny too. But, honestly it wasn't. It was actually very sad. Her story is quite moving and she is rather candid and revelatory of her flaws, which was what made this book worthwhile to me. Tiffany had no problem airing out her demons for the world to see. This whole thang was like a vicarious heart to heart and I totally dig it.

Sad it ended

This book was amazingly raw. I loved it and I love Tiffany even more.
I NEVER revisit an audiobook but as soon as I’m done telling you how amazing this book was I’m going to restart it all over again.

A must read!

This book will make you see that anything is possible no matter where you started in life while it makes you crack up the entire time. It’s The FASTEST AUDIBLE I have ever listened to. I kept making excuses to get on the car and drive so I could listen to more!!!!

The last black unicorn indeed!

I loved this book. I particularly enjoyed listening to Tiffany's voice as she narrated the story. And hearing about her experiences makes me admire her even more. Yes, she's a talented comic but most of all she's a super strong woman for having the fortitude to deal with her traumatic childhood & Adult experiences rather allowing these bad memories to envelope her and drown her. I wish her continued success, joy and happiness in all of her endeavors. This book has many life lessons & will revitalize your life!

Raw

Most memorable and favorite character was Roscoe. Tiffany has definitely done what others would never do or admit to doing. I love that she's 100% transparent and unapologetic about it. I wish more people were like her...living their truth whether good or bad.

I almost peed!

I loved every minute of this book. Tiffany Haddish is hilarious. Although her story is sometimes tragic, she's able to put a comedic spin on it. She makes you realize that no matter where you come from or how bad you life may be you can still rise.

Unapologetically Real

Couldn't stop listening!!! Tiffany is really amazing for sharing her life with us. I was able to connect with her through out this book and hope that any one who reads this is inspired by her courage ,tanacity and DGAF attitude as much as I was.

Maybe my expectations were too high...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd recommend it, but it's not my favorite memoir/autobiography I've read. There were parts that I enjoyed, but then there were parts where she felt like a character of herself.

Did Tiffany Haddish do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Tiffany did a great job narrating Tiffany. Most of the other "voices" weren't great, in my opinion. Her other characters reminded me of when children pretend to talk as an adult.

Any additional comments?

My less than 5 star review goes against the majority of opinions, so I am aware that most people might not agree with my opinions. Tiffany's story is interesting, but I found her writing/narration to be both over the top and simplistic at times. When she wrote/spoke in someone else's voice, she often repeats their last sentence twice, which just felt rudimentary. Her story about her marriage was my favorite because I felt like that was where she wasn't being a character and shared the most impact truths.

Good read but a bit confusing.

This was a really good book. I could really relate. The story did jump around alot, so I found myself lost at times. You would think that this would be a funny story because she is a comedian. Couldn't be further from the truth. The story was painful, joyous and real. I'm glad she was able to tell her story. Good read.

Amazing story, spoken by the author herself

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Last Black Unicorn gefallen?

Tiffany Haddish took the time to record this book herself. This gives the book additional authenticity and credibility. Her young life story is amazing, to a certain degree inspiring, but always entertaining. She succeeds in her objective to make the listener laugh.

Welcher Moment von The Last Black Unicorn ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

The moments when she gives additional comments which go above and beyond the written book. And her voice. Her voice so much fits her story. I cannot imagine anybody else recording the book with her own conviction and intimacy.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

This book is everything but politically correct. It's and honest book and you may not agree with her words and actions.

I prefer real books to ebooks or audiobooks. But this is the exception. Tiffany Haddish does such a great job. She’s an amazing storyteller!
