Why read the book when Stephen will read it at me so well.
His delivery of every bit was spot on.
Too many good bits to pick from.
I wouldn't change a thing.
The road trip got even better.
Steven's delivery is essential to this book! If you love his show, you will like this.
I would definitely recommend this book
Of course I laughed out loud! It's Colbert!
The book seemed a little short, maybe that's because I was enjoying it so much. Stephen can make deep insights into the current political and pop culture scene that make you think and laugh at the same time!
If you are considering either reading the book or listening to it, I recommend listening. The performance is great! If you were thinking about not reading or listening to it at all, then you should change your mind, because you would be missing out!
In a phrase that Colbert himself might use, this book contains too much hyperbolic hyperbole. I enjoyed his previous book, which was very entertaining and more subtle. That book kept leaving me with a question of "wait, does he really think that? Oh no, of course not." In this book, he hits you over the head with a humor hammer; he is working too hard for the laughs by making all his exaggerations huge. It is still entertaining, just not his best work. Too dramatic, which he really doesn't need to create a successful work.
I have listened to 5 books and this is the lowest rank after Al Gore's book.
He talks about unemployment and benzodiazopines (?) or psychotropic drugs. His reading and jokes are a bit too angry at times for me to enjoy.
When he talks about Vicodim being the wonder drug determined by the open market (high demand for the drug).
No. I listen in parts.
Cobert's first book is a better listen. So much for sequels.
I really enjoyed this because the writers put together a great book, and Colbert does an amazing job narating; it is basically a non-news based episode of his show. This is best produced audiobook I've heard.
If you enjoy watching the Colbert report you'll probably enjoy listening to this audio book. However, if you're expecting something groundbreaking you'll be disappointed.
Retired with a passion for nonfiction. To find out how my views compare or diverge with respect to what's known.
Interesting? Look I can't recall any soul resonating points. There was no 'least' interesting.
Some was less so.
As always I like Steve's voice. As usual though I began to dislike his voice somewhat.
It was unless you wanted that Colbert Bump kind of feeling. It fell just short.
Steve, Know I will always be virtually your best fan.
Laugh out loud, thought provoking, fun accents for his characters which makes it better to listen to than read. As with the Report, it isn't meant to be concrete fact, getting the laugh is the first priority.
Nice length and great listen. I love Colbert's sharp misdirection humor. Well done.
