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.
Rating -10 out of 5!!! downloaded this, not realizing what it was. It looks like just a cute kids book and it was free. I only listened to a shot piece and then realized what the true title was! I don't care if later on it may have been funny, the language is horrible, I'm not going to listen to that.
This is a funny premise but it is funny only one or two times. After a while I am not happy about it and wouldn't want a kid under a teen to listen too it. Even though they say words much worse than this at school. Anyway it just isn't funny like if CeeLoo did a whole album of songs with a chorus of F--k you! ALSO Samuel is not the one to read this book .... he may add to the uncomfortability of it as it drones on and on and all you hear are the curse words. Ok that's it I'm going the F--k to sleep now.
I believed the hype, and was severely disappointed. Just Samuel L. Jackson swearing...nothing new about that. Just watch snakes on a plane or go to ebaums world and look at a soundboard if you want to hear that, otherwise this is pretty dumb...
Typically I love rye crass off beat humor, adding Samuel Jackson seemed to be a great idea for this. Unfortunately its just a cheap attempt at getting SLJ to say "go the fk to sleep" as often as possible.. I'm glad the download was free.. I was hoping for some sort of comedy. So if you are looking to hear Samuel L Jackson, repeatedly say MotherFkr, and go the fk to sleep, along with other random cursings, then this is for you. If you are looking for Humor, satire, or comedy genius you won't find it here.. Go ahead download it...if its still free, 6mins of "go the Fk to sleep" is about 5minutes too long..
As the parent of a 3-year old and a 6-month old, I think this book is absolutely brilliant. As a regular person, I'm a big fan of Samuel L. Jackson. But I don't like them together and here's why. Jackson is too obvious a choice. He's too on the nose. And that's the problem. The juxtaposition is lost (well, just not as good). I think Mansbach's brilliant and hilarious words would be better served by a more normal, flatter read. Like, a Jack Handy type (SNL). I say, let the funny be funny without someone trying to add their own funny.
I did not care for this story or the reading. It was not humorous or entertaining. It is an insult to parenting. I only downloaded it because it was free, featured a great movie star as a reader and it got great reviews. It was not what I expected. The title should have given me a hint, but a disclaimer or warning of the excessive use of the f-word would have given better guidance. I did not listen to the entire recording as it was painful to listen to. This one was quickly deleted from my device.
