Great to listen to in the car. Very entertaining short stories.
Can't imagine another reader that could deliver this material as well as David Sedaris.
When he talks about his life in France and learning the language is amazing. The book is extremely funny but it also has some more sombre and serious notes, it sounds off putting, i know, but it added a pleasant balance that kept it from being tiring.
I would compare it to
David Sederis is funny without it needing to be actually said by him but inflection can be lost when the narration is handed over to someone else, him doing it makes it perfect. Less like someone is reading a book to you and more like someone is telling you a really great and well thought out story, its conversational.
I laughed so hard it almost made me cry.
This book is amazing, I have probably listened to it 30 times over and its still funny. Definatly worth the money.
If you want a great laugh, get this book. Side splittingly funny! I love the fact that David Sedaris is the narrator, because he gives it another dimension that I don't think I would have gotten had I actually read the book. He's awesome, the book is awesome. You will not be disappointed.
Very funny stories by the author read perfectly with intonations that keep you interested. For a first listen it serves as a great introduction to the world of Audiobooks and by the time you finish you will be thirsty for more.
Had to drive to Santa Barbara & back from the Bay Area. A 6 to 7 hour trip. What an enlightening way to spend my time. David Sedaris is a genius at writing and calling out our human nature. You will laugh and be touched by his insights.
This guy has the knack for making the most obscure details of life funny. My favorite are the conversations during his French classes. It was great.
David Sedaris is in top form for this book. I laughed so hard driving that I literally almost had an accident. I highly recommend this one!
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.
