If you like his books, you'll love hearing him read them! I LOVE his adventures with speech therapy and of course the family escapades. I can keep listening to stories on this over and over when I need a laugh.
I read Me Talk Pretty and for some reason it was not as funny as hearing it on tape. The Audio Version is so much funnier! David Sedaris's voice makes it more personal and adds more hilarity.
I listened to this book on the plane. Every minute, I would burst out laughing and all the passengers would look at me.
I loved this book! It is the first book I have ever listened to and it was well worth the money. The general style is somewhere between dry and psychotic - his ability to tell a story is genius at times. I would recommended it to anyone who is interested in autobiographical writing or just wants a laugh.
David Sedaris' self-critical humor and willingness to say what the rest of us are thinking is not only greatly amusing, but refreshing. Read by the author, this is one of those rare titles that I would recommend the audiobook before the hard copy.
There were times when I was listening to this book that I was almost crying it was so funny. I listen to my audio books on the train going to and from work and had to stop myself many times from laughing out loud. I will be on the lookout for more of his books.
This wasn't to my taste. Many friends had read the book and said it was hysterically funny, but I found the author's delivery rather melancholy and pathetic. His stories re: speech therapy and his family pets left me feeling somewhat sad - much to my friends' confusion. I think I would be better off reading the book.
If I could give this book zero stars, I would. I couldn't even listen to the whole book. His feeling sorry for himself gets old fast. I'm a caregiver, and know many people who struggle with much greater afflictions than David Sedaris, and they whine much less.
Absolutely the most funniest I really enjoyed Me Talk Pretty One Day. The book was a fast listen recommend it highly.
