I've been waiting for this to some out for a while, and it's SO good. David Sedaris is just great, super funny. I made an ass out of myself laughing as I walked down the street alone a few times. If you don't already, download everything he has ever written. It's worth it. He has not written a bad book.
It took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did it was totally engrossing. If you were to describe the plot of The Interstings to someone it wouldn't sound like that good of a book, but once you get past the first few chapters you find yourself feeling really invested in the lives of each character who each had their own distinct voice and personality.
I love this book, it was really well written and the voice actor was really talented.
The author doesn't give any real infromation about ghost hunting, he talks a lot about how to organize a good group of people to go ghost hunting, but then doesn't say a think about the actual ghost hunt and what should go on in one. I know the book is short, but seriously? Their is no substance what so ever. The narration was good, but that's the only thing. Don't waste your time/money.
This book was just fantastic, I could not stop listening and listening to the whole thing in one day (at the gym and doing housework.. I'm not that lazy!). I was thourally engrossed in the interesting life of working at a hotel. Tomsky paints a wonderful picture of what it is like to work in a high end hotel well also providing useful infromation about how to get free upgrades. I love everything about this book.
Although I did enjoy the story, every male character was completely one-dimensional, and the voice performance was pretty bad and was really frustrating at time when she spoke internal dialogue as if each character was constantly making lists. This would have been a lot better if it had been narrated by someone else.
