I love the author's narration. If I read the book myself, it would be funny, but his cadence really makes it hilarious. I can't believe there are people aren't familiar with his work. They are missing out on a treasure.
Yes! Sedaris' wry wit is laugh-out-loud hilarious!
David Sedaris; I want to be his friend.
His voice and inflections really enhance his stories. I'd tried to read this in the past and grew a bit bored. But I was hooked the moment I heard his voice and dry description of his non-TV-watching neighbors.
I'm immediately adding everything he's ever done to my queue!
I really enjoyed seeing David in Arizona. Reading his books are one thing. Hearing the words from him, layered with the intent with which they were written, was prodigious. Thank you David. 😄
Do not waste your time on this one. Wow! poor all the way around. Too bad because I was looking forward to some laughter.
As silly and irreverent as ever, this is one of DS's best collections of stories about his endearingly dysfunctional family. It's a classic made even even better by getting to hear it read in his own voice. Every chapter made me laugh out loud. It's not often that I reread or listen to a book more than once. This is one I will enjoy over and over.
Danger!! Don't listen to while driving. You may end up in a ditch from laughing too hard!
This and Holidays on Ice are fantastic!
