  • Happy Endings: The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch

    Comedian Jim Norton is dirty...really dirty...the kind of dirty that makes The Aristocrats look like a knock-knock joke. Fortunately for him, his kind of dirty humor has earned him the distinction of being third microphone on the immensely popular Opie & Anthony syndicated radio show. In Happy Endings, Jim brings his raw, hilarious, and offensively honest comedy to AudibleĀ® listeners.

    Overall

    I don't mind a good dirty joke and liberal amounts of smut if it's funny. This book has plenty of smut, bad language and some attempted dirty jokes but overall I did not find this book very humorous.

    If you like adolescent humor and liberal amounts of the "f" and "c" words in a humorless context then you may like this but I doubt it.

    Just not my type of humor I guess.

    My recommendation is save your money.

    They don't call him Lucky Les for nothing. A ticket in a raffle and Norton was off to the US of A, where it turned out hot, red hot, and it wasn't just the weather. Night club brawls, mafia hitmen, and too many girls called Lori, all in a sea of margaritas. Even for Les Norton, it was just too hot to handle. So it was off to the Caribbean, where Millwood Downie - schoolteacher, historian, and would-be stand-up comic - helps Les trace his family tree and possibly uncover the biggest earn ever.

    Kristin says: "So funny I almost peed my pants!!!!"

    Overall

    I usually like the Les Norton books but this one just waffled on too much.The narrator lost interest at times. The story could have been written and told in half the time - far to much padding Mr Barret.

    I guess we all have a bad one occassionally and this is the Les Norton bad one. Recommend any of Les' other adventures though.

    Pretty Paul Parsons is a self-proclaimed schizophrenic, dyslexic, transsexual with Alzheimer's, who is currently working on a process by which he hopes to cure hemophilia with acupuncture. Pretty Paul likes to spend his spare time at his Heavy Petting Zoo, where he teaches blind children the art of chainsaw sculpture and sending get-well cards to everyone in the obituary column.

    Overall

    I don't mind a bit of crass humour but this...well I was surprised Audible would allow material like this on their site. There are jokes about pedophilia and some other exceptionally tasteless, sorry can't call it humor, rubbish.

    Avoid this like the plague unless you are some kind of sicko!

    It's back: the show they didn't dare call King Stupid Series 2! A new presenter, new panellists, new title, new silly games, and more jokes than ever in the show Robert Hanks in The Independent called "a brilliant panel game".

    Peter says: "Brilliant"

    Just get all the series. If you love British comedy you will enjoy this too.

    Alexander Domokos wrote this memoir of his years during and after the Second World War with two purposes in mind. He wanted to allow his daughter a glimpse into his past and to enlighten others about the tragedy of his homeland, Hungary.

    Overall

    A first class lesson in "the price of freedom" under the suffocating atmosphere of communism and nazism or for that matter any dictatorship.

    Very well read gripping story. I highly recommend this book to anyone interetsed not only in history but in an individual's struggle against tyranny, the injustices imposed by the so called great powers and the indomitable spirit of man to overcome great adversity.

    One of the best books I have downloaded from Audible.

    An abandoned hilltop farmhouse. Seven desperate people, and a surrounding darkness ripped by bloodcurdling cries of anguish. A state of emergency has been declared: the unimaginable is happening in the night.

    "Plenty of gore"
    Overall

    An enjoyable dramatisation. Watch out for bad language if younger teens are listening to this. Keeps you on the egde of your seat.

    Was there really a Headless Horseman? This dramatic story will draw you into the life of Ichabod Crane as you ponder the question.

    Jay says: "What were they thinking?"
    "A bit of fun"
    Overall

    This was a fun listen, not real scary but enough to make the kids a little jumpy. Confused dramatisation regarding the accents but otherwise ok. If you need something to occupy kids on a car trip this is ok.
