    Contemporary satirist Loh spins a darkly comic, semi-autobiographical tale of growing up middle-class Chinese-German in Southern California. This comic monologue is for sons and daughters everywhere who feel that their parents must have beamed to Earth from another planet.

    Overall

    I am really a fan of storytelling, however this audio book was painful to listen to. I enjoyed the stories but the author's delivery was terrible. She needs to tone it down a little. It went from speaking in a very low voice you could barely hear to an earpopping screech which was so annoying I almost didn't finish it. Especially shrill were the accents she assigned to her parents and the volume she gave those accents. Towards the end it was particularly annoying and difficult to listen to, especially in the car where you would have to turn up the volume and then a few seconds later turn it down to a reasonable level. The stories were good but this reading gave me a headache.
