This is a collection of short stories read by the author, mostly about his some what disfuctional family. If you liked Sedaris' last book, "Me Talk Pretty One Day", you will certainly like his new audible selection "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim". David's narration may turn off some listeners, but I find it enhances his stories and makes them funnier. If you're new to Sedaris, check out the audio sample before your purchase. One minor complaint is that several stories (example: "six to eight black men") were taken from previous books of his. Still enjoyable none the less.
The story certainly starts out with a splash, but by the middle, it begins to lose momentum. You'll love the characters, you'll love the plot, and the narrator does a terrific job of telling the story. I just felt disapointed with the lackluster finish.
Even being in my twenties, I still enjoyed listening to The Princess Diaries. Anne Hathaway's narration is great, and she will make you love Mia. The books are very different from the movies. I recommend all five books in the series.
Things were going so well with William Hurt narrating the first story of this audio book. His Narration was terrific, and the story was great. However, once I started part two, I was bored, and King's narration was very unpleasant to me. Perhaps I'll pick it up again soon, but for now, "Hearts in Atlantis" is on the shelf.
Despite seeing the end of this novel coming a mile away, I still enjoyed listening to see how it played out. Hard core mystery fans might find Margolin's Sleeping Beauty cliche at times, but it's entertaining none the less.
This is one of my favorites here on Audible. It's beautifully narrated by Jenna Lamia who manages to bring the characters alive through a number of different southern accents. You'll find yourself laughing and crying right along with Lily in her journey to discover the truth about her mother.
