Yes, and I have listened to it over & over. Very funny!
When Samuel L Jackson gets very frustrated.
The name is fine. I would prefer a name without f--k in it, but someone might misunderstand who the intended audience is.
This story is NOT for kids, just really immature adults like myself.
I'm a corporate training consultant and adjunct professor who loves to read! I'm always looking for the next big thing.
I bought this book in hardcopy because I had heard so many great things about it--and it lived up to the hype. Then, I learned that an audio version of it had been made with none other than Samuel L. Jackson as the narrator, and I had to have it. The story is short and sweet--and I suspect that all parents can relate to it! Having Jackson read it makes it that much better. Highly recommend!!
I picked up this audiobook as a lark, as I saw the YouTube video of a Phillipino grandma reading it for the first time and I thought it was hilarious. Then I saw that Samuel Jackson was going to read it, so I had to get it. Like the Phillipino grandma, it was funny the first time, but gets old fast.
I have listened to it multiple times when I need a laugh, or just to be consoled. At 9:00 I turn into an exhausted witch who just wants her kiddos to Go the F--K to Sleep. Knowing that there are others who can sympathize is comforting. In this case, it's comforting and hilarious.
What a great voice for a comedic touch.
I laugh out loud every time I play it.
Yes, Samuel Jackson does an excellent job bringing the book to life.
The whole book was memorable
There was only one character
The parent because they try everything to get the child to go to sleep but nothing works.
Avid reader.... er listener.
This book is for any parent who has been kept up late on a work day by a little one who will just not go "The F--K To Sleep". And well worth the price for the laugh.
I am 70 yrs old, have raised 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and now have one great-grandchild. This book made me laugh till the tears were running down my cheeks and my sides were hurting. I understand that some folk might object to the language ... I can only hope they might get past their prejudices and enjoy this masterpiece. Think of the author as having an internal dialog.
(Spoiler:) There comes a moment when the child finally goes to sleep, parent sits down to relax and enjoy movie ... with popcorn ... from the microwave ... DING. You guessed it. I play this audio whenever I need a quick laugh. It's on top of my favorites list.
The sheer desperation and annoyance in SLJ's voice is masterful.
I regularly watch my Nephews...Believe me, this book says everything I WISH i could say out loud on occasion.
The Bedtime Story. When you have had a little too much of the kids this short story is just what you need to release your frustrations.This is a very short audio but Samuel L. Jackson is pitch perfect and delivers the "f" word like few can.
Never for children!!!
I liked that I could relate to it. I have felt like that before when my kids were little and wouldn't go to sleep. I thought the story would be funnier though.
I didn't really have one.
