    Kevin Pollak rose through the comedy club ranks at the feet of Don Rickles and Bill Cosby, Johnny Carson, and George Carlin. Named one of Comedy Central’s Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time, he’s a killer impressionist — Falk, Shatner, Walken, Nicholson — a versatile actor with one of the most respected filmographies around, and an Internet pioneer. He’s done it all, and now he’s ready to spill the beans.

    S. Droski says: "Turns out I'm a fan...who knew?!"
    "I love Kevin Pollak, but this is not a book for me"

    Would you try another book from Kevin Pollak and Alan Goldsher and/or Kevin Pollak?

    Maybe, depends on what other "readers" say about it.


    Has How I Slept My Way to the Middle turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but this was just too rough around the edges regarding profanity. Talking dirty, doesn't necessarily make it funny.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Kevin has a great sense of humor and I have enjoyed his standup routine several times in person. This book was hard to follow and his trash mouth did not add to the book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue listening to various "authors" but will be more selective in the content.

    Delaney's pursuit of the killer, never faltering and always focused.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Maybe, but listened during work, instead of music. Would be too long for one sitting.

    I read this series many years ago. Audible is much more enjoyable.

    Would you listen to The Book of Lies again? Why?

    Yes, just to make sure I didn't miss anything.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Book of Lies?

    When the Prophet was revealed...I was completely off base when this happened.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first experience with Scott's narrative, His voice was very spellbinding and easily understood.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure, but it should be a movie...I love Brad's writing.


    Any additional comments?

    No, ready for another book to listen to while I work. It is so much better than music.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "The Help as an audible book."

    What did you love best about The Help?

    I loved everything about this selection! I am amazed as to how much better this version is compared to the movie and printed edition. The ladies reading it gave a new and more understandable view to what had been written. It was like sitting with a best friend reading and sharing the experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Help?

    It is hard to choose the most memorable, but the explanation that Minnie gives for the uses of Crisco...I started laughing out loud, I was at work and had to leave my desk. Potty training and using the


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Absolutely the best narrators I have heard.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was great, Skeeter coming of age with the help of The Help.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so happy I chose The Help as my first selection.
