I was amused by some parts: the satires of bureaucracy and politics. But anyone can do that! Might be an enjoyable read, but not an enjoyable listen. If I want to listen to someone point out the ridiculousness that pervades our culture, I'll take it from someone like George Carlin. Maybe if George Carlin had read this book, I might have enjoyed it, but the tone of David Rakoff's voice annoyed me to no end. It has a sarcastic, whiny, tone. In fact, he sounds just like Mr. Hat from South Park! I think he's the wrong type of guy to be doing this type of comedy. He tries to make his satires eloquently poetic by unneccessarily utilizing grandiose phrases that are out of place, as I have just demonstrated. David Rakoff should stick to reading things like Peter Pan, or Diary of a Fairy Godmother.
