Author, rabid Audible listener.
Maybe its because I don't have kids. Maybe its because I'm used to hearing people swear but this just wasn't all that good. While Samuel L. Jackson was fun in the book and the perfect person to read it, the story was actually quite boring. Then again at the cost of free and 6 minutes of your time at least you won't feel ripped off.
I am a 70+ year old Born-Again Christian with a varied background and have been retired twice. I love my wife and our children and music and movies and books and computers.
This was one of the trashiest books that I've ever come in contact with. The vulgarity was offensive to my ears, and I spent 21 years in the USAF without hearing anything like it. If this is the way some people talk to their children, they should not have responsibility for them. Children can cause frustration, but vulgar expletives can never be an appropriate response to a parent's verbal assault on their children's ears.
Sorry - but the audio is a waste of time, I didnt finish listening to it, to anoying! Love Sam, but this just as agravating as my 4 yr old getting up for the 11th time.
Dumbest thing anyone ever wasted their time to do...and in poor taste. Shame I have to give it even one star in order to post. Sure hope I can figure out how to get it OUT of my library.
We've tried Dr. Suess, Shel Silverstein, Tomie dePaola, and countless others. Still, our child has had a dreadful time getting to sleep ... until this came along! Now our little darling (and Mom and Dad, too) sleep so much better! We absolutely love this and play it every night. We are so grateful and the whole family sleeps better now!
I have heard people talk about this for a couple days now and finally listened to it and actually think it was a waste of 6 minutes.
WASTE OF TIME, MONEY
ERASE AND DELETE
I WASTED MONEY AND TIME BECAUSE I SAW SAMUAL JACKSON NARRATED THE BOOK.
I HAD NO IDEA HE WOULD WASTE HIS TIME AND REPUTATION.
Not written it
I liked Jackson's voice
Sadness and disappointment. This book shows what is wrong with our culture.
I couldn't recommend it. For Jackson to say it reminds him of his own life is just sad, sad.
I have a young child that I read to every night, so I thought that this book would be great for me and I would be able to identify with it. Instead I just found it an excuse for profanity, and did not really enjoy the book at all. I stopped 30 minutes into the reading.
I have several audible books from this vendor in my ipod app on my iPad. They were easy to download and easy to play. After an hour of downloading the book into a black hole I finally gave up on it. Doesn't inspire me to shop here again. I think I will stick with iTunes.
