Yes, books like these that aren't exactly literary are always better read by the actor/author themselves.
Her father, she re-enacts voice-mails she receives from her father. Hilarious.
She makes funny stories even funnier with her inflection.
Laughed at parts.
Yes, I think all Celebrity memoir audio books are better than the print edition, because they take less time and it is read by the celebrity.
I didn't know about Rachel Dratch's son and her relationship with the father, it's a very interesting story. I relate to her experiences in dating, so it was moving to hear her story of how she finally found a lasting relationship. It was also interesting to hear her experiences in Hollywood.
Yes, I listened to this book while multitasking: walking, doing chores.
If they were fans of Ellen, sure.
She goes on long tangents that if I was reading I probably would have skipped over, but listening to her ramble made it easier to understand where her mind was going.
I would listen to it again on a car ride with a friend who hadn't heard it yet, but I don't usually re-read or re-listen to things.
The hilarious ridiculousness of the situations she gets into.
Her tone while reading the book adds to the experience. I wish she didn't have to sing the chapter titles though >.<
By David Sedaris? Yes. Other narrators? No. I get audible books to hear the author read it, not random other people.
The fable aspect of it. I didn't read any reviews for this book so I didn't know all the characters were going to be animals. It was unexpected and hard to follow sometimes but clever. Some of the stories go a bit dark for my taste.
I disliked that it was read by many different readers, I bought it to hear David Sedaris read it to me, he only reads a few of the stories.
