I'm enjoying the story very much. Fisher Stevens is a great narrator...sometimes. He often ends his sentences in a Casey Kasem kind of cadence which is quite annoying. Sounds like he's announcing a commercial rather than telling a story. Other times, he's great and does all the things a good narrator should do.
The book itself is amusing and a good listen. Definitely an adult selection.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I didn't know what to expect, and I generally read thrillers. This book was hilarious -- I laughed out loud during several passages, and almost always had a smile on my face when listening. The narrator was good (not great) and I didn't have any trouble distinguishing the characters. The ending was a little predictable, but all in all a great summer book.
Chris Moore's A Dirty Job had me laughing out loud. The characters are well developed and very interesting. Unlike others, I found Fisher Stevens' narration to be excellent.
This is an absurd and very funny book. If you liked A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, you will love this! I listen while walking and was laughing out loud so many times that people started staring. I'd love to see more of this author thru audible!
A great listen for when you want something proposterous and entertaining. Not for someone looking for serious prose. I agree with the other reviewers that the musical blips are bad - but they are very short and only mildly annoying. I loved all the discussion of beta males.
Christopher Moore does a wonderful job narrating this unbelievable and just plain weird storyline. I loved the humor and the characters in which he brings alive and keeps you laughing and wanting for more Moore.
I'm a dentist, speaker, blogger, dad and horse caretaker. I listen to audiobooks and podcasts all the time.
I honestly was enjoying this book so much that I didn't want it to end. The first hour or so I wasn't sure what to think of it. The characters and roles were very dark, yet the treatment was totally silly. So once I warmed up to the presentation, it was actually a pretty good story. I enjoyed the narration and the tendency of the author to take nothing seriously. There were lots of unexpected twists and turns and I enjoyed all of it. Who knew death could be so entertaining?
I started out thinking that this is really stupid humor. But after getting into the bizarre theme, I was laughing pretty often. I liked the narration too.
This was a very entertaining, fast paced book with a lot of laughs albeit very dark humor. Those with little or no sense of humor - stay away. The narrator was outstanding and had more energy than most. You'll like this book if you like the beta-male type characters like Woody Allen. Absurd topic made funny. I also enjoyed the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. This book isn't quite as out there but comes close. I highly recommend it. Now, I'm going to try another book by the author because I enjoyed this one so much.
