Not a book. Audio standup? Always yes.
Funny stories about parenting--and that is it!
POOR and disappointing performance from a man who knows how to engage an audience. There were audible stumbles very very frequently, and the jokes were entirely recycled from his standup--and without the comedic delivery. At the beginning of the audiobook he jokes that he needed to write a book to afford a bigger house ASAP, and I think he was telling the truth. This is an extremely rushed product from one of my favorite comedians. Such a disappointment.
Only because I had 15 hours to kill on a long drive. Otherwise no.
You will likely enjoy this book much more as a parent who doesn't know what to expect from gaffigan's comedy, and no prior knowledge of his standup.
Among one of the best audiobooks I've listened to, especially thanks to the amazing performances by the narrators. Thanks to that, it is as 3-dimensional as watching the film--with the awesome perks of keeping Kathryn Stockett's story unadulterated.
The characters/character development is spot on. In the film, Skeeters character lacks depth, but in the book she gradually takes on her mature and understanding role.
Minnie and Abeline are by far the most amazing characters. I don't know how Kathryn Stockett portrayed them so vividly--truly amazing. You will feel like you know them and that they're your best friends.
Very long book, great for long road-trips. You will be crying at various points in the story, and you will feel connection to this book no matter who you are.
