    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    Would you consider the audio edition of George Carlin Reads to You to be better than the print version?

    I would simply for the reason that it's akin to getting another 7 hours or so of George Carlin's standup. He doesn't simply read the words on the page but brings life to them and it's easy to feel like you're watching him do a set.


    What other book might you compare George Carlin Reads to You to and why?

    I can't think of another book that compares to this one.


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

    His pace, tone, and attitude as he reads the books. It's in between a live show and just a standard narration but as a big George Carlin fan it was great to hear him read these books.


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

    I found myself coming back to his book after every wook interruption or short break to rest my ears. It's easy to listen to in chunks because there is no major over-arching storyline but prolonged listeneing just left me smiling like a fool at my desk.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book! Any fan of Carlin's stand up would probably enjoy this audio book!

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Where does Redshirts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's towards the top of my list


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy Dahl was great as the redshirt that finally sees a pattern emerging...


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

    I've not listened to any of Wil Wheaton's narrations before and to be honest, I only realized he narrated this book when I started to listen. It was a pleasant surprise and seeing Wil's name next to an audio book will increase the likelihood I'd buy it.


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

    I listen to audio books exclusively at work but this could've easily been a weekend listen. It's not overly long and it maintains a good pace throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    Wil's narration was great, the idea behind the book was original and a great nod to the sci-fi lovers and the lore of the Redshirt. I particularly enjoyed the opening to the book and I've read some criticism of the end but I enjoyed the codas.
