I've been following @sh*tmydadsays on Twitter for some time now. I knew that the author had signed a TV deal based on his Tweets, but I had no idea that he had a book until I was browsing around on Audible one night. I'm glad I found this book because I enjoyed it immensely. In following the @sh*tmydadsays tweets, I just thought the author's dad was just a crazy old coot, but after listening to this book, I realized just how wise the dad is. If I had just one complaint, it would be that this book is too short, but I guess there's always that TV series to look forward to. I just hope it's half as good as the book.
No story, nothing to say, nothing much at all - that is if you strip away the half dozen swear words that is repeated over and over again.
After listening for twenty minutes, I felt dirty and ready to puke.
Very sad if people get attracted to such empty filth.
The person who recommended this book to me, is now off my list of trusty resources.
I came to this book through a recommendation from a friend, and it was as good as I was told. I greatly enjoyed the stories, I thought the dad character was hilarious. I think the narrator did a great job. I highly recommend this book, and it's without a doubt in the top of my list of funny books.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
It sounded like my ideal book: hysterically funny, rude, or irreverent comments made by people old enough to know better with just enough wisdom and profanity thown in to keep it interesting. Imagine my surprise to find out there was not quite enough wisdom or funny to make it worth the three hours I gave it. The best part was a really great narrator. Look forward to hearing him again with just a bit more substance thrown in.
I had no idea that Justin and I were brothers..... My dad says the same sh*t. I laughed so hard I cried. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a no-nonsense father and isn't afraid of the liberal use of the f-bomb.
I loved this book. I read it first and then decided to buy it so my dad, brothers and I could listen to it on our road trip. We laughed so hard and made for great conversation about our childhood with him. Sean Schemmel is wonderful with the voices. Simply brilliant.
Hilarious stories, clever one-liners, and excellent narration make this my absolute favorite audiobook ever. Definitely worth a listen. I didn't delete it from my mp3 player because I plan to listen to it again soon.
This book is an easy listen, and it's funny. Unfortunately I find the narrator's impersonation of Justin Halpern's dad very annoying. Also Justin sounds like a whiney wuss. I think he was going for Archie Bunker or Ralph from the Honeymooners. It's unfortunate, because the story telling pretty much requires that Justin's dad sounds outrageous, but charismatic.
I truly enjoyed this book and loved every minute of it.
I highly recommend it.
The similarities between the authors father and my father are uncanny.
