    Woody Allen - writer, director, and actor - can now add narrator to his long list of achievements, as he’s teamed up with Audible to make his best-selling books available in audio for the very first time. The Woody Allen Collection, featuring four of his classic short-story books, highlights the comedian’s biting wit and signature style - performed as only he can. These hilarious stories examine the deepest of human questions from the highest heights of absurdity.

    Overall

    When Side Effects was released in 1980, I was a freshman in high school and I bought the book immediately after reading a few lines from one of the stories, "Remembering Needleman":

    "It has been four weeks, and it is still hard for me to believe Sandor Needleman is dead. I was present at the cremation, and at his son's request, brought the marshmallows, but few of us could think of anything but our pain."

    I simply loved his style of writing and I often tried to emulate it in my English assignments. In fact, I often managed to work the character name "Needleman" into my writing. I was a big fan of comedy in general and his book came out at a time where I found myself studying the art itself, so much of my own sense of humor was a direct result of his books.

    Over the years, I have read all of the other books with just as much enthusiasm and now that I'm an audiobook addict, I would often search for these books on Audible just to see if anyone recorded an audio version I can hear in my car. Thankfully all four books are now all here and as an added bonus they are all narrated by Woody Allen himself.

    Woody Allen is not for everyone. He doesn't base his comedy on potty humor or use foul language. His comedy can be silly at times, but it's always funny or at the very least, fun to read... and now at last, to listen to.
