The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish is possibly the most entertaining autobiography I have ever read. I'm not particularly a Tiffany Haddish fan, but her story gave me the look into her life that I didn't know I needed (or wanted).
The Last Black Unicorn is the saddest funny book I have ever read. I would have never imagined that Tiffany Haddish's bubbly personality was hiding the past that it is. I had seriously mixed feelings while reading The Last Black Unicorn. Her childhood and early adulthood were traumatic. I mean some of it is downright heart-wrenching.
The entire story is told in Tiffany Haddish's voice. I kid you not, you can almost hear her talking to you. I felt like she 'talked to text' the entire thing. Reading The Last Black Unicorn gives you the feeling that Tiffany Haddish is in your living room telling you her life story. The sound of her voice is what keeps this autobiography from being dull or depressing. Tiffany Haddish's voice has a way of making really sad stories funny. There are parts that I laughed at that made me feel guilty. It almost felt like I was chuckling during a funeral or something.

Ups and Downs
To some people, Tiffany Haddish feels like an overnight success. The Last Black Unicorn chronicles the many years she spent trying to break into the male-dominated world of stand up comedy. With every story of disrespect she endured and with every milestone she describes reaching you feel more and more like she deserves everything she has today. I may never be a die hard Tiffany Haddish fan, but I definitely have a lot more respect for her after experiencing her life through The Last Black Unicorn.
Fan or not, I think anyone would enjoy The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. If you want your next read to give you a good laugh and make you feel all the feels I highly recommend it. Grab yourself a copy and come back and let me know what you think.
