Zombie spaceship wasteland.
No. This books audience is for a certain type of people. A niche market. It won't be universally appreciated, so I say no. With that said, it is enjoyable if you are the target demographic.
The D&D "scene" and poem.
No, but I did find it surprisingly well written. While I am a fan of his standup, this book was more honest, philosophical, and well written than funny. You can tell Patton is well read and has a passion for literature, movies, music, etc.
It was an okay listen. It didn't pack as much punch as I thought it would, but it was short so it was easily digestible.
The concept was that its like a high school history course. This was its charm but also its limitation as it kind of got dull at times. Not topical humor like the show.
If you aren't a fan of him, I doubt you'll like this. If you are, you might.
I would encourage more books to be made with the same type of sarcastic wit and parodying of politics, but maybe not in this format.
I probably sound more cynical in retrospect than I was listening to the book. I did find I enjoyable. Put my wife to sleep though on a car trip! So, know what you are getting here.
Among comedy, there is no equal in audiobooks. This had me dying of laughter the entire duration.
It's hard to name a single one. I really liked his truck kill switch.
It's natural. You can tell he isn't reading it to you. He is ranting and storytelling ad hoc and that makes it more enjoyable.
It's hit or miss. Be warned you will most likely be offended or off put by some of his comments. A lot makes sense but some might make you cringe. I believe he flat out says men are smarter than women and that we should send kids with peanut allergies to an island. If you can brush that off and realize he is a just a comedian with exagerated opinions, some parts really are true/wise. It's just intermingled with half baked opinions.
Hilarious but depends on the listener. Feminists, homosexuals, etc enter at your own risk.
