    In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor").

    Sean says: "Good for Gaffigan fans - better for expecting dads"
    "Recycled jokes, mediocre performance"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I like Gaffigans standup, which could be part of why I didn't like this book so much. About a third of the book is jokes recycled from his standup, Gaffigan has a good stage presence but his voice on the book seemed rushed, like he wanted to get it over with and get on with things. The rest of the material was fairly mediocre and I was disappointed with it.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrative was monotone and rushed.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope
