Book Description:

"Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Be Ticked off About, Humorous Essays on the Hassles of Our Time" is a low-brow look at high-minded living, a good-natured (mostly) rant about some of the challenges we face and some of the annoyances we deal with just because we’re alive and trying to thrive at this moment in history. Part comedic call to arms and part tongue-in-cheek tirade, "Alexa’s a Spy" goes after, among other things, spammers and scammers, clutter and litter, intrusive technology and uncivil discourse. Too much stuff, too much noise, too much to worry about. Not enough patience, not enough kindness, not enough…chocolate? As a syndicated humor columnist, Dorothy Rosby has been ranting for more than 20 years in publications across the West and Midwest. If her latest book doesn’t change the world, and most likely it won’t, we’ll at least go down the tubes together, knowing how really foolish we’re all being.

Meet the Author:

Dorothy Rosby is a syndicated humor columnist and author of two other books of humorous essays "I Used to Think I Was Not That Bad and Then I Got to Know Me Better" and "I Didn’t Know You Could Make Birthday Cake from Scratch, Parenting Blunders from Cradle to Empty Nest." She’s working on her fourth and hoping to give it a shorter title—something like "Wow" or "Best Seller." She lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota, 20 miles from Mount Rushmore, something she’s very proud of even though she’s not on it. Yet.

My Review: 

I found Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Be Ticked off About: Humorous Essays on the Hassles of Our Time to be a fun read. It made me laugh so hard at times that I had tears in my eyes. It has been a very difficult year for me and this book gave me exactly what I needed for a bit. Dorothy Rosby covers about everything that any reader would be able to relate to in this book. She proved to me that I am not the only one that questions different areas of life. It was so amusing to see what she came up with. It was so so funny. Readers will be able to see her humorous thoughts on tech, manners, noises, spammers, clutter, scammers, and so much more. It seems like nothing was left out. It is such a good way to laugh at ourselves. I thought it was great much needed entertainment. I know I had a great reading and am so glad I gave it chance. 

I am giving Alexa’s a Spy and Other Things to Be Ticked off About: Humorous Essays on the Hassles of Our Time four and  half stars. It is most definitely worth and not one to be missed. I would want to read more by this author in the future. I recommend this one for readers who need a good laugh. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
