This book started out funny but near the end it just became pure random drivel. I am not a rocket scientist (far from it) so the end of the book was probably totally over my head. I listened to another one of his books "The Pleasure of My Company" and I really enjoyed it which is why I wanted to listen to this one. Plus I heard the excerpt of when the character was writing letters to his x-girlfriend - VERY Funny.
The Pleasure of My Company
I listened to this book at the gym on the treadmill. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Very enjoyable!
I love the comedy of Steve Martin, and have for years. When I discovered this audio book, I expected it to be two hours of pure fun and laughs. Was I disappointed! It was two hours of sheer boredom and torture. I only finished it to justify the cost of the audio book. It would have to improve to be drivel. Only one story was funny; all the rest were just stupid and boring.
Save your money and skip this one. Audible.com presented one of the stories in a "free listen" when I joined, and that was the ONLY story that was funny. Steve Martin is capable of better material than this. He just mailed this one in.
I would rate this as 1/2 start or no star if I could. Based on what other reviewers said about this being funny I thought I would get this one. This is anything but funny; it's down right boring drivel.
