These stories are very funny and charming in an offbeat way. I really enjoyed the author narrating his own work which sometimes does not work out as well as this one did.
Yes, two others. They are all good, but i love these short stories. I want more....and they would be worth buying!
Full disclosure....why we are all happily neurotic
Jon Ronson is the cat's meow!
When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.
This is definitely not my cup of tea. The stories are supposed to be funny, but really aren't. It could be that this type of humour isn't funny to people like me. I found the first story vulgar and the rest very dull. It is for free, so try it and decide for yourself.
This guy writes with a bent that tickles my fancy. I must read more of his works. I thoroughly enjoyed these stories because of his clever, yet warped sense of humor. Great narration, too!
I'm an avid reader. My favorite genre is true crime. Although I do read and listen to other genre's.
Even with it being short. I really enjoyed it and I also could relate to it. I liked the narrator too
Love a good sci-fi audiobook or Buddhist lecture.
I've read a few Ronson books and have always enjoyed his work, it's eat to hear him flexing his muscles as a pure humorist, all four stories were a hoot.
When I have a little money I buy books and if there is any left over, I buy food.
I didn't see the humor in the first story about the parent allowing his child to swear. I did think it was funny telling the kid a fake made-up word, but he should have had been taught to have morals, etiquette, and respect. Instead the father was a very poor example.
I guess this just wasn't my cup of tea...although I couldn't help myself...I am ashamed to say it WAS funny...if you like sarcasm.
His accent actually carried a lot of weight in the performance. How does one keep a straight face?
All in all this is not a bad introduction to the authors work.
It is extremely short though and the British humour was unexpected though refreshing.
