    The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

    I've tried getting through this book twice now. First time reading, when I couldn't I thought maybe listening would be better. It's not.

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "worth while"
    Overall

    While some of the stories were better than others, as a collective they were all entertaining and worth the listen. You don't need to be a tree hugger, wear a pony tail, nor do you have to enjoy the taste of granola to enjoy this audio book. Frankly, I don't like any of those myself, nor do I like the feel of Birkenstocks.

    I'd also like to note that Alessandro Juliani's performance was absolutely amazing.

  • Too Fat to Fish

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 55 mins)

    Story
    (130)

    A natural storyteller with a bottomless pit of material, Lange grew up in a close-knit, working-class Italian family in Union, New Jersey, as a maniacal Yankees fan who pursued the two things his father said he was cut out for: sports and comedy. Wild, shocking, and drop-dead hilarious, Too Fat to Fish is Artie Lange giving everything he's got to give. And like a true pro, the man never disappoints.

    John says: "great book, horrid readers"
    "In all honesty"
    Overall

    I'm a huge fan of Artie and the whole show and if you are too this book won't disappoint. I was actually surprised though that of all the talent that read, Bob Levy was one of the best while Artie himself sounded a bit flat and lacked the natural inflection and intonation I'm use to from hearing his stories told on the radio. It's a great book though, especially if you are a fan of the show.
