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.
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.
