This "book" would be boring and uninteresting without the word 'f--k' constantly appearing in it. With 'f--k' in it, it is much worse.
Unless you're a 9 to 14 year old (and enjoy hearing the word constantly repeated unnecessarily), I suggest you give it a pass. I got it for free and I feel I was ripped off!
Okay, with a title like that, what should I have expected? But, f@king, f@k is used every other word and amounts to gratuitous vulgarity. While the poem is cleverly written, associating it with a child is vile in the extreme. Would it be funny without the constant repetition of that word? Yes!
Way to much use of the word f-ck, after a while it is very annoying. Truly I'm surprised a publisher would publish this?
It stops being funny after the first verse. This is shameful garbage which Audible should refuse to feature on their site. Unlike the equally profane Sh*t My Dad Says, this story has no heart. In the interview at the start, Jackson claims he would often tell his own children to go the f to sleep. That just screams awesome dad, then again what can we expect from a former crack dealer? If any parent is telling their kid to go the f to sleep, they need to work on their parenting skills. I understand that this is a joke, but it isn't funny or clever, it just demonstrates how unsophisticated and base American society has become. My advice to potential readers, do not waste even six minutes listening to this stupidity. Go the f to sleep needs to go the f away.
Big mystery lover here! The picture is of my father who is suffering with dementia and my youngest daughter on her wedding day.
Of course I've felt all the sentiments expressed in this poem. Every parent has. It's just a lazy work, using f--ck to be funny.
Warning that it's not a kids book! Had read a review on another children's book that mentioned this as funny. Should have known from the title but ... not. Definitely needs a language warning. Don't want this in my library.
I doubt it. I don't know why he did this one. It was pointless.
He was OK, but the whole effort was pointless.
The book itself.
More warning to be prepared for something Tarantino style telling fashion. Or to read the review before buying.
I don't consider this a genre. It's a spoof and should have been advertised as such. It was funny but I do not talk to my kids like this.
I liked Samuel L. Jackson. It was purely his style and he has a wonderful voice. He could do a better story with his voice. I just didn't like this story. As a spoof, it works but not as anything else.
Disturbance. We have all thought this way to our child but i have never talked to a small child like this and to hear a small child's story read like this...well, I deleted the book.
I wouldn't rule any of them out just because of this very short book.
I was expecting something clever and was extremely disappointed. Samuel Jackson did a great job but there were just way too many F bombs. Hopefully there aren't many parents that impatient with their child to bombard them with the F-word
It could have been written by a tired high school babysitter. I guess what can you expect out of a 6 minute dissertation by Samuel L Jackson, who sounded like HE was ready to fall asleep reading it!! Don't waste your time or money.
