Funny? Of course. But a bit wise too -that was a surprise. Wonderful in any format but especially great as an audiobook.
This audiobook really brought a smile to my face. Hearing Sedaris tell it in his own dry way really adds to it (my own inner reader is so animated, it's a totally different experience). I also LOVED the chapters that were him reading in front of a live audience. It was like the show came to me!
I enjoy these essays more than I should. On long road trips we play them in the car. As family bonding goes I guess it's probably a good that the kids are over 18 so that child protective services doesn't intervene :-)
Laugh Out Loud
David delivers his personal stories with perfect timing and tone.

This is the book to read when you don’t know what you want to read next. Like deciding to listen to the radio instead of putting on a CD.
It was part essay, part stand-up, part diary – mostly funny (I did laugh out loud at times), sometimes cringe worthy (the horse in the magazine- yuck!), and overall entertaining.
My only complaint was the laugh track during one of the “live essays / speeches”. It was BEYOND irritating!
Like every audiobook I've listened to of David Sedaris' work, this one is read by the author and is a delight because of it. There's nothing like hearing the voices of the other people from his memoirs as he remembers them to help you feel what he felt.
