Somehow this just didn't do it for me. I am fan of most British comedy and especially anything related to Python, but I just couldn't sit through all of this.
Wonderful first book to a wonderful series. Great for early readers. Covers topics that young kids are familiar with, so reading is easy. One of the great things about the story is that it takes the dogs perspective occasionally.
This audiobook was simply not funny at all. He describes one failure after another in his attempts to be funny over the years and how the audience did not find him funny. You start to feel sorry for him, then pity, then it just becomes painful as he continues to attempt to make jokes and they fall flat. Clearly the Grammy nomination was nothing more than a tribute.
Just brilliant! Draws you in and stays with you after you finish the series...which you will.
This is a fine introduction for people would like to know more about lucid dreaming. Don't expect an elaborate 'how to' book. It will give you the background you need to get started and point you in the right direction, however. Enjoy!
This is the first of the Intelligence Squared series I've listened to and if the others are as thought provoking as this one, I'll be listening to more. At times hilarious and often crude, but this debate provided a variety of intelligent perspectives on the topic. Both sides were well represented and made solid points. A few crackpots, but that just made it all the more fun.
I'd pay the cost of this over most of the similarly priced movies I've seen in the last few years.
I enjoyed the book enough to stay with it, especially after the first third, but if you are not very forgiving of a poor reader, you may want the print version. Some characters were done excellently, but others were just so bad or completely out of character that I was constantly paying attention to the reader rather than the story.
The story would be more appropriate for a made-for-TV movie than a novel. A fun TV movie, but not worth more than a couple hours of my time.
