I almost didn't get this audio-book based on some of these reviews- "Music too long" "Live audio terrible" etc. especially because I honestly didn't care much for his last book "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary" at all.
Well, I'm glad I ignored them because now that I've finished listening I must say, those people have no idea what they're writing about! The music was perfectly innocuous and appropriately timed. The live recordings sound exactly like live recordings always do- live. Sure you hear the audience but that's sort of the point!
Then there's the review complaining of Sedaris' delivery. May I remind you that it has been 20 years since his first book and the man is 56 years old! Do you really expect everyone to stay the same?
Bottom line, this is yet another terrific memoir from one of my favorite authors! Just as funny, charming, alarming and fun as ever!
If you are a fan, you won't regret it! If you aren't a fan then you probably won't be won over.
Um, David Sedaris. Because it's a memoir.
Yes, but couldn't.
Methinks the Neo-cons are getting nervous- approval ratings lower than Nixon!
Liars always lose.
Funny, but my list seems to be different: For instance, number 37 is Bernard Goldberg. Screwing up America as defined by record deficits, daily casualties in Iraq, Osama still free, Bush's record-breaking vacations, out-sourcing jobs and the attempt to turn America into a theocracy just like Iran. Exposing the documented lies, demanding resposibility for the outing of a CIA agent, criticizing the corruption of those like Tom Delay and Rick Santorum is not America Bashing- it's the opposite. This administration is by far the most corrupt, anti-American in history- Hitler would be proud.
