While not a parent myself, I can still appreciate this. Any parents of kids that drive them crazy at bedtime will love this.
I absoluely love this. I can totally relate, and as much as I love my little guy, sometimes I get SO exhausted and panicked about when/if he'll fall asleep, that I do have these thoughts. But I'd never say it out loud. And, for the record, I'd never let him read/listen to this book. I do think that the language gets a bit old. By the last 2 minutes I was ready for it to be over.
...because this is awesome. And narrated by SAMUEL L. JACKSON, muthatrucker!! Great comedic timing in his narration, coupled with genuine parental angst.
Most parents can relate to this tale seeing as we experienced the same emotions if not the exact phrases first hand. Samuel L. Jackson is perfect - he builds on the narrative and you can just feel his emotion as he tries, with not much luck, and as much exasperated patience as he can muster, to get his story book daughter to go the fk to sleep. The illustrations are first rate and the story has just the right imagery to carry it through to the end. I reviewed this story late last night and was thinking the same thing - why can't I just "Go the Fk to Sleep!" I give it five stars and loved to share it!
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.
