    Born in the United States, but reared in Mexico, Harrison Shepherd finds precarious shelter but no sense of home on his thrilling odyssey. Life is whatever he learns from housekeepers and, one fateful day, by mixing plaster for famed muralist Diego Rivera. When he goes to work for Rivera, his wife, exotic artist Kahlo, and exiled leader Lev Trotsky, Shepherd inadvertently casts his lot with art and revolution.

    Overall

    Doing good accents is not enough to be a narrator. I am really liking the story, but I was compelled to write this review even though I am only 1/4 into it. The narration is so painful I'm not sure if I can go much longer. Why oh why oh why doesn't such a great writer as Kingsolver let a great professional voice artist read this book? She did enough in researching and writing this book, give it over to a pro to read it, PLEASE!! Last time I get a book before reading the reviews. Ugh.

    Following his two New York Times best sellers, Brain Droppings and Napalm & Silly Putty, comes George Carlin's third audiobook, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, a riotous journey through the mind of one of America's premiere comic observers.

    Dana Wolfe says: "Wonderful!"
    "Very funny moments"
    Overall

    George Carlin has amazing moments. Not only humor, but serious insight into human behavior. Inbetween those moments are entertainment segments that just aren't that entertaining. He sometimes starts to sound like Andy Rooney, complaining about how people now... Of course, he is much more interesting and makes a much stronger point than Rooney. I wish he would have only stuck to his observations and ideas about life and humanity and saved the bits for a different book or performance. George Carlin was an important voice in this world. Get this book and get some perspective.
