**WARNING** This book is for adults only, infact only for adults who could handle profanity, sex and off color humor. If you are one of these adults then this is a must "read". Jim has made me more of a fan.
I LOVE!!!! little Jimmy so I'm hesitant to write anything but a positive review. This is a funny book and you won't be dissapointed by it. That being said it was a lot of regurgitated stories from the O & A show. If your a fan however, this is not to be missed.
Happy birfday Jimmy!!!!! (I know how you like these !!)
This boy was a tear jerker about a young man's struggle to become the best Litte Jimmy he can be. There are classic stories about the nice girls that help him work out his issues.
You finally know the starts of the widely popular monster rain.
A must read
A fine literary masterpiece brought to life by charismatic lad that brought you "Monster Rain" and "Big Boy Made a Doody". Sure to be an enduring classic that will resonate with future generations.
Good day sir.
The story Jim Norton tells in this book is as I expected, being a listener of Opie & Anthony. Norton does not hide behind anything in this book, his stories are graphic, personal, and filled with a lot of self-deprecation. He's a great narrator, I couldn't imagine anyone else reading his story, and he does a great job presenting the stories. If you are a fan of his stand-up, I recommend the book.
Jim Norton is certainly not an easy thing to listen to if you like things like boundaries and have a moral compass. If you are unburdened of such things, then you should absolutely eat this up! He is quite the silly goose!
The things you need to get past when it comes to Jim Norton and his humor are your own hangups. Yes, his humor is self-deprecating, yes he employs language some might consider offensive (I don't), but it is HONEST.
Just as in his stand-up act, and in his commentary on the Opie and Anthony show, he is relentlessly, bitingly and emphatically honest about himself, and does not suffer fools or the dishonest very well.
If you choose to get stuck on the hookers or the trannies or the language, it's your great loss.
Norton has a keen wit and is tremendously funny. For me, this book was a pleasure to listen to. I look forward to reading or hearing his next book.
I have not heard of Norton before. My first reaction to the book was disgust but I found it funny a few minutes later. Yes, the humor is very immature but none the less it made me laugh. A book that can make me laugh all the way through gets a good grade regardless of how vulgar the humor and it is very vulgar.
