Laura the Listener
...but I don't, so it just seemed like a long list of all the reasons why I don't. And an homage to his wife, who is apparently perfect. There were a few lines that made me smile (not so much laugh out loud though), but overall I expected something funnier from Gaffigan as I'm a big fan of his comedy.
OK, I will admit - I love Jim Gaffigan and have seen him in concert. There are parts of this book that are just laugh out loud funny - and I don't even have kids. A great, light listen.
Parents of young (and multiple) kids who are not yet familiar with Jim and want to relate in a comedic, raw, and honest way parentally. My kids are older now so I fell asleep to this book in spite of loving Jim already.
Jim, I love you still and appreciate your place in life. I'm just not there now and needed more humor outside of your specific place, though I can imagine I'll have to wait a while as you are being demandingly blessed by constant spousal fertility. ;-)
Jim Gaffigan never fails to make me laugh. I have to admit its better to see his standup because a lot of his facial expressions make me laugh, but this audio book was great.
So honest, a person has to laugh. Jim captures the ironies perfectly of pretending to be an adult. His self-deprecating humor is hilarious.
Yes--so funny, smart, and engaging that I was laughing out loud.
He brought his own stories alive--I could see him living the experiences he was recounting.
Great book even for those of us who do not have kids.
Is it worth it to take five and a half hours to listen to this book? Yes. Will you think it's funny if you're not a dad with young kids? I don't know, but I sure thought it was pretty funny. Some parts near the end sound a little like complaining, but it fits well with his type of standup. Would I recommend it? Yes I would.
