I think sometimes people click "unhelpful" when they mean "I disagree". Can there be an agree/ disagree button next to the helpful option?
You'd have to be a HUGE David Sedaris fan to be happy with this purchase.
But wait a minute - that's wrong. Being a HUGE David Sedaris fan is what made me hate this purchase. Because I've already heard/read everything in it on This American Life or in the New Yorker. And I've listened to his great stuff often enough to know that this is all very much his B game.
So only buy this if you don't like David Sedaris at all.
Or wait til Audible comes to its senses and sells it for $4.95. It has a pleasure content similar to that of a Mocha Grande so I think that price is fair.
But 14 bucks is just stupid.
I was left with an extra credit and used it on this short collection of stories by Sedaris -- I laughed all the way through and my only complaint was that I wish it hadn't ended so soon.
Sedaris is one of the most intelligent and sly humorists out there, and is best appreciated when he's reading his own material.
