  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    "Not funny"
    Overall

    What a disappointment; I smiled twice. I never laughed once. I'm a big fan, so I'm saddened by this waste of time.

    Story

    Seymour "Swede" Levov is a prosperous, hard-working family man who comes of age in America's triumphant postwar era. But when the country begins to run amok in the 1960s, Swede's perfect world crumbles.

    Thomas says: "A Masterpiece"
    "The Best Narration"
    Overall

    Ron Silver is brilliant. His accents, phrasing, and timing give the story an added drama that must be exactly what Phillip Roth imagined. This is the best narration of any audiobook I have ever read.

    Cindy says: "Completly Abridged"
    "Too abridged"
    Overall

    Fans of the Outlander series will find this a mere Cliff Note. Looses most of the flavor. If you are using this to remind yourself of the plot to catch up for the later novels then it's enough.
