  • Not Taco Bell Material

    • ABRIDGED (7 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Adam Carolla
    • Narrated By Adam Carolla

    Story
    (870)

    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Brett says: "Not bad but uneven and not revealing."

    What did you love best about Not Taco Bell Material?

    I loved everything about this book!


    What other book might you compare Not Taco Bell Material to and why?

    I laughed probably more than Tina Feys recent book. It's comedy you can relate too.


    What does Adam Carolla bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice makes the book.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades of Grey to be better than the print version?

    No, the readers voice wasn't the right tone. Also I found it irritating the writer kept using the same lines and adjectives through the book. Like "He draws his lips to a hard line" "cocks his head to one side" and "incedulous"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian Grey, E.L. James description made an actual image for me.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, not enough emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    The books were entertaining, but I would not call it mommy porn.
