  • "Great observational story telling, ..."

    Story

    My previous experience with David Sedaris' work was When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and after a few months my memory of it was that it was good. After having spent some time on other types of books, I was ready for a few laughs and thought I'd try another of David Sedaris' books.

    In this book he again related his personal experiences, most of which were filled with angst. I didn't get to smile or laugh much during this audio book because the stories weren't funny, but they were great 'human experience' stories.

    A few were disturbing and I couldn't relate to them because of certain belief systems I am currently operating under. I had a knot in my gut while listening to him recall the teenage boy slumber party with strip poker where another teenage boy had to sit on his lap naked. Or his recollections of panhandling as a teen in order to buy things. And, the story of the elevator ride with the young boy was too long and again full of angst.

    So, the stories are great, but maybe not for everyone. And, this is certainly not one to buy if you are looking for cheerful and funny comedy to lighten your heart.

    For that I would recommend some of Patrick McManus' story telling. Even though I have no interest in hunting or fishing, his stories are funny and clean and leave me with a positive feeling. After listening to Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, I didn't feel clean or happy or lightened, just the opposite.

    In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    This book, read by the author, has some laugh out loud parts, and some parts that really make you think about humanity.

    The author does a great job narrating his own book.

    At first, the book felt like it stumbled a little, but within a few chapters the book hit a good stride and had me laughing or smiling or pondering. There were some stories that really made me think about how people treat each other, and I learned a little bit of history too.

    The book starts in a courtroom, and flashes back through various experiences before coming back to the courtroom and picking up from there with a few more stories. That worked very well, so I'm not certain where I felt a bit of a stumble in the beginning where I wondered if I had picked a good book, but that was pretty short and the book got really good pretty fast.

    The author's clean and folksy style kind of reminds me of Patrick McManus's humorous tales, and I hope he'll be as prolific a writer of humorous books as Mr McManus has been.

    The cops wanted to shoot me, my bosses thought I was a Bolshevik, and a local lawyer warned me that some people I was writing about might try to test the strength of my skull with a steel pipe. What more could any young reporter hope for from his first real job? The night Mark Leiren-Young drove into British Columbia, in 1985 to work as a reporter for the venerable Williams Lake Tribune, he arrived on the scene of an armed robbery. And that was before things got weird. For a 22-year-old from Vancouver, a stint in the legendary Cariboo town was a trip to another world and another era.

    I had a big lump in my throat from another Audible book I had listened to. An excellent book, with stories of horses and the people who trained them, good and bad. The last chapter left me with a lump in my throat and sad heart and it was still there the next day. I needed a humorous book to take away that big lump in my throat and empty feeling in my chest from the true story I had read and the sad ending of a man in many of the chapters.

    I love Patrick McManus' s humor, stories built upon years of insightful observations of human behavior, and woven with a rare gift of story telling. This book has some funny laught-out-loud stories, and the rest are simply good stories that put a smile on your face or will at least lighten your heart.

    Laughter is good medicine for a heavy heart, and this book did the trick. It erased the lump in my throat, the sadness left from the end of another book and as long as I don't think about that other book, this book has done the trick and lightened the load and brightened my day.

    If you ever have stressed out days, or sad days, I'd recommend any of Patrick McManus' books. Not that I'm a prude, but it's interesting how he manages to get laughter without using foul language or crude references. I am a person who has been opposed to hunting, yet I still enjoy his stories, even those with a hunting or fishing theme, maybe because he writes them from the point of view of a hapless hunter or fisherman.

    They are a hoot.

Chuck's greatest hits:
  • Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse... One Beer at a Time

    "Very Nearly Perfect"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse... One Beer at a Time the most enjoyable?

    The book is a stitch, and could well be subtitled "The American Shaun of the Dead". It is exactly what you think it is from reading the pitch: "The Hangover" with zombies. And that angle could easily lead a lesser writer to a complete train wreck. But Mr. Johnson pulls it off with élan. His characters are the everyman friends we've all had on and off throughout our lives, and their responses to the various scenarios that arise are - blessedly - the reactions I would expect from me and my friends, and not the stuff of heroes. At the same time, Mr. Johnson cuts his characters no slack, and "kills his darlings" with ghoulish delight.

    The humor is sometimes a little sophomore-ish, but that is quite in keeping with the characters, so it works. The "physical comedy", so to speak, is brilliantly detailed by the author; I rarely laugh out loud when reading, but I found myself sustaining lengthy belly-laughing fits more than twice. The scene with the zombie and the mullet is worthy of the Marx Brothers. The ability to convey effective slapstick comedy in prose is the mark of a solid writer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse... One Beer at a Time?

    The first big fight with the zombies when one grabs Russ by the mullet. That whole fight scene is hysterical. The "comic high jinx" are pretty evenly distributed throughout the book.


    Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he's now on my list, along with Phil Gigante and Wayne June. Mr. Helleger's performance is flawless. He nails the voices for the various character stereotypes without sounding stereotypical. His reading is spirited and engaging, and his sound FX are priceless.


    If you could rename Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse... One Beer at a Time, what would you call it?

    Zombie-Palooza


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write reviews, because someone else has usually said what I wanted to say, only better. But there were no reviews yet on this a/b when I checked earlier today, and I very much want to encourage Mr. Johnson to Write! Write! Write! In my humble judgment, this book stands right up there with WWZ, Zombie Fallout, etc. It's definitely not "Adam Sandler vs the Zombies" - there's a real zombie story in there, and a very interesting twist on the origins of the plague.

    A solid, thoroughly entertaining first adventure into Zombiedom.

    (PS: When it comes time to make the movie, please remember me as one of the book's first fans on audible - I would love to be a zombie extra!)

  • "A historical overview of hilarious ..."

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    First off kudos to Richard McGonagle for perfectly nailing the tone and demeanor of this book. This is perhaps the best reading of any of the hundreds of books that I have listened to from either audible or other places.

    Secondly this book is a fun and lighthearted view of the historical people who ran the United States. If you cannot tell by the title it is a little bit vulgar but fun and silly through. It is still somewhat historically accurate (from the parts that I have independently studied).

    Perhaps the largest downside to this book is that the author spends more or less equal time on all of the presidents, and while this leads to some very humorous chapters due to the need to fill it out prevents some presidents from getting the needed tome to accurately describe their badassery.

    Also note that this only covers the dead presidents and not any living ones.

    As a prisoner of war, Andrew Jackson walked several miles barefoot across state lines while suffering from smallpox and a serious head wound received when he refused to polish the boots of the soldiers who had taken him captive. He was thirteen years old. A few decades later, he became the first popularly elected president and served the nation, pausing briefly only to beat a would-be assassin with a cane to within an inch of his life.

President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adam’s, much better.

It’s Me Chelsea and Artie Lange’s Too Fat to Fish, you’ll love The Bedwetter.

    Johnny Dongle returns with more real-life, awful names given to children by even realer-life, awfuler parents. Tresco: Child or Discount Pharmacy Chain? Pacey: Child or Race Horse? Annora: Child or Medical Condition? You be the judge. Bascom: Child or Secretive Government Agency? You be the judge. Advisory: This audiobook is even more vile, vulgar, and hilarious than Volume I.

    I don't know how it happened. Really, I don't. I was a student at the University of Buffalo, located, of all places, in Buffalo, New York. I guess that's why they called it the University of Buffalo? The year was mid-1960s. Every word of this story is true. Maybe embellished a little to satisfy my creative urge. But it's a story I remember as if it were yesterday. Then again, maybe it was. In the scheme of things. You'll laugh. A lot. You'll remember. A lot. You might even want to go back to college. Well, that might be a bit of a stretch!

    Hawthorne presents several ideas which form the very core of the conservative critique: that man's sinfulness is an immutable part of his character; that rationalists, reformers, and progressives delude themselves with their utopian notions of the perfectibility of man; that in their delusion they do incalculable damage to the culture, while leaving human nature untouched; and that, no matter the "progress" they make, evil lurks, waiting to rear its ugly head and shatter their dreams.

    Taken from the tape recordings of the enigmatic and ultra-cautious dangerologist Docter Noel Zone, Danger Is Everywhere is a brilliantly funny audiobook for avoiding danger of all kinds that will have you laughing out loud (very safely) from start to finish. Does it warn you about what to do if a shark comes up out of the loo while you are sitting on it? Yes, it does. And what to do if a volcano erupts underneath your house? After you've made sure it's not a neighbour's barbecue, this audiobook will let you know exactly how to deal with it.
