52. Nick Offerman – Paddle Your Own Canoe

Whoa, sorry I haven’t posted in a while! It’s partly because my last book took me forever to get through, and also partly because I’m just lazy.

I read this last book partly over my Thanksgiving break (which was nice, it was sooo good to be home!) and then finished it last weekend. IMG_7680

The book was Paddle Your Own Canoe, a *sort-of* memoir by Nick Offerman, aka Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.

I loved Parks and Rec, and if you’ve been with me for a while you know that I love reading memoirs by comedians.

However, I was disappointed with this book. It was just boring to me. Sure, there were some funny parts, but for me they were few and far between.

I was expecting more humor, but it kind of felt like it was full of too-big words.

He spent a lot of time telling the story of how he grew up to be a comedian (understandably), but those parts got pretty boring for me. I liked when he talked about his more recent years with his wife, but that was only a part of the book.

I think a lot of people think that Ron Swanson and Nick Offerman are one in the same, but of course they are not. They may have some similarities, but if you’re thinking of reading this book just because you love Ron Swanson, I would not recommend it.

I’m sure there are people who enjoy this book, but it just dragged on for me. I was mostly reading it just to get it over with, because I’m almost never a book quitter (there was one book I started reading this summer that was so bad I never finished it).

Anyway, I just don’t really have anything to say about this book. I had high hopes for it to at least entertain me but it barely even did that most of the time, sadly.
