This is definately what every tired parents thinks but can't say to thier lovely little angels at bedtime. I laughed so hard while listening. It is wonderful.
What a hilarious audio! LOL! Yes! Every word true! My teens could use a bedtime story like this when they won't go to sleep! Read and taken in the spirit that it was meant to be, excellent! Any parent that has had this situation happen can appreciate this story, and it could have been written with1 profanity at the end and still have been hilarious. Right up there with profanity free "Walter the Farting Dog" series of books/audio.
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!
