No, I was searching for books on diabetes. This was good humor but not on subject
Disappointed but passes time while driving
Audiobooks are my jam. I enjoy comedy, autobiographies, a bit of sci-fi and horror, and informative non-fiction.
I have read David Sedaris' text, but hearing him narrate his own stories brings a completely new aspect to the experience. His comedic timing is great. The very first story in the book, about his visit to a taxidermy shop, has stuck with me and I still laugh about it.
Not hilarious. Interesting in a sad way. Couldn't finish it. Narration was good and easy to listen to. But it made me more sad than happy. I made it through 10 chapters, so I gave it a fair chance. sorry!
After having been disappointed my some of Sedaris's recent work, I thought that this was a real return to his unique style of deadpan, absurdist humor. One complaint is that some of his work in this book was previously published elsewhere, but it still feels fresh to hear him read it.
Funny, intriguing, interesting.
I thought he was honest and expressed his true self.
Reading it would not have been the same. David was speaking to me.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this title before... I have listened to it so many times! Nothing beats listening to David Sedaris read David Sedaris :)
