There is no one in the world today that I think is better at swearing in such a lively way than Samuel L. Jackson. After being somewhat disappointed in the book version of Go the Fvck to sleep, I found this Audible read version and about busted a gut. So glad that if someone read this it was him.
I would give this a perfect 5 stars if it didn't have the "extra fluff" at the beginning and the end. I don't care to hear Samuel L. Jackson say why he wanted to read the book, I just want to hear him read it. Also, I don't care that Audible tells me what I am going to listen to or what I have listened to. Aside from these detractors... it's Samuel L. Jackson reading "Go the Fuck to Sleep." It doesn't get much better than that.
I laughed myself silly, and remembered vividly exactly how this felt. My son is getting this from me for Father's Day, as a reminder of what he put his parents through, and to contemplate and I hope, laugh, when his own very bright, beautiful little angel won't Go the F**k to Sleep. Samuel L. Jackson is the perfect narrator - he hits the mix of tenderness and frustration and exhaustion and "can't we get two effing hours to watch a movie and eat popcorn?" exactly, honestly real.
I love a good narrator. I like all kinds of books and I am always looking for my next great listen.
Now i have never said these words to my child... i have thought them oh so many times!
Great book, although not one I would read to my child. Samuel L has just the right voice and the perfect attitude to narrate the book. Think Mary had a Little Lamb meets Pulp Fiction!
As a mother of twins, I can relate to EVERY word of this and SLJ's narration was perfect--the desperation in his voice is absolutely priceless!
This is F**king awesome! I am sending to my adult children as a gift. Really, 15 words are not needed, this is so funny!
Addicted to Audible since 2009
This was really funny but I did have one regret: I just wish it was longer. Samuel Jackson does a great job with the narration.
