This books is no exception to the level of popularity that the greatness of all other books David Sedaris has allowed him.
While this one would probably be properly appreciated during the holiday season, (Late October through December) I have no repercussions in giving this book all the stars allowed.
I purposely read and cherish Sedaris' books when they are read by the author himself (as this one is).
This is one of the type of books that I could easily see myself listening to again and being equally satisfied by it.
I have listened to probably every variation of The Guide, and the Radio Plays rank up there amongst some of the best performances. Douglas Adams had admitted in the past that he never wrote any of the Versions of The Guide the same. So while the storyline stays primarily the same, there is always some never heard/read bits in every version of The Guide, this radio play not being any exception to the rule.
I feel in love with Phil Gigante during my listening of The Stainless Steel Rat series and was desperately waiting for another good series to come around that would combine a good book with a good narrator.
Imagine my pleasure when I found Kevin Anderson's Dan Shamble series.
I look forward to many more books to come in the series. Already anxiously awaiting the next books release.
