This Book is a great novelty, It's ONLY meant for parents so anyone that can't take a joke so go the FOk to sleep! -J Gray
After the purchase, I found out that the file type is not supported on my Droid X. Would have been good to know previously. Honestly, what made them not create it as an mp3?
I thought this would be humorous, but the word lost its impact after several repetitions.
I can't imagine an intelligent person's using that tone and/or word with any child.
Seriously who are you people giving this 4+ stars? This is both disturbing and not funny. If it was funny and yet disturbing that would be one thing but alas it isn't. In fact, if you gave this higher than one star (zero is not an option) please do the rest of humanity a favor and DO NOT HAVE KIDS.
I love this last comment in the Publisher's Summary, "Due to its explicit language, you probably should not play it for your children." PROBABLY...really? As I was listening to as much of this as I could stomach (about 3 minutes) I was thinking, there are no doubt ignorant F--ks who will think this is funny and will also think it would be funny to play if for their kids at bed time....
Like I said true on every level. Spoken from someone with kid who burns the midnight oil I've probably thought it. But I'll tell you, my Mamma used to make me bite on a bar of ivory soap. Save it for the movies Mr. Sam.
I laughed so hard because all I could hear was myself and my friends. You also couldn't have gotten a better perso to read it than Samual L Jackson.
This is "f_ing" HILLARIOUS! I can't remember when I've laughed so much at any audio-book - all parents should have this for instant stress-relief! The narrator could not have done it any more PERFECTLY than he did - absolutely BRILLIANT! My new top-of-the-list FAVORITE Audible book!
It may sound fun for adults when they listen to this monogue, but I would definitely not let my kid listen to it in order to make her go to sleep. Samuel L. Jackson insists that he was turning this on for his daughter as a lyllaby, but I don't want to believe it... For me it is too aggressive, but I must admit, both my husband and I are laughing everytime we hear this speech. It reminds us of our situation with our kids at their sleep time.
I think this book is hilarious. And if you are a parent who struggles with getting your child to go to sleep you understand. If you're one of those parents who claims they don't have this problem forget you go read Dr. Suess. I think, from now on, this is going to be my baby shower gift of choice. I may even read it to my daughter, but I will have to edit out the F bombs since she is only 7 and gets terribly offended when I curse.
Six minutes? Give me a break. It was hilarious and Samuel Jackson did a wonderful job, but really? It wasn't long enough to bother with the purchase (yes, it was cheap), the download, the transfer to my ipod. I would consider a collection of these stories a "book". This was only a joke.
