I am immortal ....so far. I enjoy a god story and love a great narrator. :-)
I enjoyed this but am a Gaffigan fan so .....my opinion review shouldnt really count. :-)

...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.
I'm a Jim Gaffigan fan. He reminds me of Bill Cosby. I don't have kids and am probably a few years away from having kids, but I laughed from the start of this book to the end. The things that Jim talks about in his book are for all walks of life.
Jim reads it himself and does a brilliant job. Some of the book will be familiar to anyone who has watched any of his comedy specials but his way of looking at life is hilarious.
Dad Is Fat is one of the funniest books I've read in a long time.
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.
Other people who have four or more children and are looking to commiserate.
Jim Gaffigan could have used the story telling ability that made him famous in the first place. He doesn't joke around and he doesn't try to engage the reader.
Hilarious, witty, relatable
Everytime he told a funny story, he just keeps adding more and more levels of wit - So, everything he relates is funny, but on multiple different levels.
if you love jim, this will be a great addition to your library.
his insight and reflections on fatherhood was hilarious.
however, if youre a big fan, he does recycle some of his jokes into the book. so its not 100% new content.
I am a new parent and related to most of the stories and it was hilarious. I am glad it was Gaffigan who read it. May not have been as funny otherwise. Not quite as funny as his stand up bits, but really funny none-the-less.
I absolutely love audiobooks. There is simply nothing like having someone read you an engrossing story; not to mention you can get things done while you listen. I always have one on the go.
Jim Gaffigan can do no wrong. He is one of my favourite Comedians. I don't have children and this book is mostly about that... and I still love it.
I love listening to books and I despise bad narrators.
He's always funny and totally real. Who wouldn't love this book is the real question? I'm a believer for sure. If he keeps putting material out there, I will keep listening.
