This. Is. Hilarious. Mr. Mansbach nailed it right on the head with this book. I bought it and I don't even have kids, it's that good.
I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic
This book offends me on so many levels and I do not ever recall having ANY book that I have looked at or bought that I truly hate to see in my library. Please remove it. Please
Narration and content. The book seems to be a childrens story in the cover illustration then shocks you from sentence one with 4 letter words. I really should have known when I saw who was narrating it.
Nasty tone and he seems to enjoy creating chaos with the content of this book. Hated it
Every single thing. This should never had been published. At the very least take the illustration down so that you don't give even the illusion of children book
Hate it, Really Hate it, Did I say how much I Hate it. Please remove this from my library.
I read science, biographies, histories, mysteries, adventures, thrillers, educationals, linguistics but not no way, not no how, romances.
Come on! Why are you reading a review! It's narrated by Samuel L. Jackson! Just buy the thing!
Making the world better one review at a time.
Go the F--k to Sleep proves that social media can make or break a book. One night, after growing frustrated with his daughter's antics at bed time, author Adam Mansbach posted on Facebook, "Look out for my forthcoming children's book - Go the F--k to Sleep." The response was overwhelming, and Mansbach began working on the book. But social media wasn't finished with this story yet. Before its official publication date, PDF advance copies of the book went viral and Go the F--k to Sleep ended up in the No. 1 spot on the bestseller list.
So does the story live up to all the hype?
Yes and no. Samuel L. Jackson's reading of the book is fantastic. He does a wonderful job of portraying the weary parent who no longer cares if he is a "sh--ty" parent, he just wants his kid to go the f--k to sleep. The narrative, however, quickly gets old. It's like a book of jokes that all have the same punchline.
Honestly, I am probably not in a position to review this book. Not having children myself, and never having experienced the struggle to get a child to go to sleep, I laughed at this book but was unable to relate. If you are a parent, you should definitely buy this book and listen for yourself. At under $2 and only 6 minutes of listening time, you just can't go wrong.
It's not MY granny's bedtime story but it is very funny! My kids are all grown up but I know there were times that I wanted to say just that- and probably did!
