    In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor").

    Sean says: "Good for Gaffigan fans - better for expecting dads"
    "Hilarious and heartwarming"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to spend the next 5 1/2 hours chuckling to themselves and occasionally bursting out loud in laughter. If you have kids, want kids or just want to find out where Jim Gaffigan lives, this is the perfect audiobook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jim Gaffigan gives a great performance. His comic timing as a reader and his witty grasp of irony do not fail to amuse and inform.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Gaffigan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    If you have seen all of Jim Gaffigan's one hour specials as I have, you will recognize some of his jokes for a second time. However, rather then detracting from book the new context just serves to make the jokes funnier.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    If you could hear me listening to this audiobook (I'm not sure why you'd want to listen to me listen to an audiobook, but if you did) you'd hear mostly a constant chuckling and chortling punctuated by occasional bursts of loud laughter.
