I really enjoyed it. I read some other reviews and was hesitant to buy it, but I'm glad I listened to my gut. Paul Michael Garcia was a fantastic narrator and he really brought the book to life. I could see where the style would turn some people off, but I found it forced me to really listen and focus on the book. I had no problems following along.
Can't think of anything I'd compare it to. It's a unique verbage and while the plot was a bit predictable, I found myself laughing at some parts and re-reading certain chapters to see if I could pick up something new.
Another narrator could've really tanked this book, due to the broken English, or pigeon English. Mr. Garcia's performance was top notch: perfect rhythms and I got into the style by the end of the first chapter. A great match for narrator and story.
Begins here the first account of Operative Pygmy...
Outstanding. I've read it twice already.
When the narrator is reading the chapter in which Jack almost drowns. I was on the edge of my seat.
I haven't. But now I want to. Excellent narrator.
No extreme reactions. But I really enjoyed the story and the narration.
Looking forward to others in the series.
I liked it. I liked it so much, I'm going to read it again.
Edward's letter from his father, and how he reacted and processed the information.
Edward's date with Joy
Edward has a very logical story....
I'm not sure what the author was trying to accomplish here. It was like she was trying to write a Harlequin romance, but in a porn-y, frat boy kind of way. The narrator's elfish voice didn't help the story. If I hear the word 'penis' or 'vagina' one more time, I think I'll throw myself off of a bridge. Definitely not my type of book. So disappointed - seemed like a good plot summary, but this book falls flat on so many levels. I couldn't even finish it. I guess the audience that this would appeal to would be a 22 year old frat boy, or a 15 year old horny kid with no imagination. I was bored and uninterested by the second chapter. Save your credits if you're a grown up.
There was no attempt at giving the characters didn't voices. After a while, I found her tone and inntonation to be quite annoying.
The vapid Jen or Liz or whatever her name was. Drew. Carter. Claire. The dad. The kid, Gavin. There wasn't anyone I liked, or could tolerate.
Worst. Book. Ever.
I haven't read the print version. I liked the alternating characters, it adds a nice touch to have the female parts read by a female and the male parts read by a male. Both narrators gave good performances.
I loved hating Amy Elliott Dunn. I can't really say why without a spoiler.
Again, I really loved hating Amy. But I also enjoyed Kirby Heyborne as the detective.
I wouldn't say "extreme". I was surprised by the time I got to the end. The last chapter made me cringe a little (without giving away the story)
I'd recommend it. It wasn't what I expected, but I did get into the book.
maybe. it depends on the friend. parts of it read like a laundry list.
i dunno. it's something to do. i think i got it for 5 bucks or something. i'm not terribly impressed. it's not "wow.."
the narration is weird. never heard this narrator before but sometimes i feel like he's in the booth trying waaay too hard. other times, i'm a little intrigued.
i'm at the second half and i have a long boring drive to L.A. to make, so, like i said, something to do.
oh, it's a series??? how...interesting
I've listened twice already- it's hilarious!
It's a memoir and I enjoyed taking the trip down memory lane
I usually check out his stand up when I have the chance. He's a gifted storyteller and writer. I really liked the book.
Oh, the title is awesome as it
Proper, straight, amusing
When the main character was mistaken for a vet
The end was nifty
Not really. I was unexpectantly amused
First rate for sure
No comparison, I loved it
Real, raw, loved how she added the English accents to give each character a voice.
Being alone in the hospital - can totally relate
Highly recommend it
