The reviewers that have compared Daisy to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris need to be taken out back with a sharp switch until they get their senses back.
Daisy is so far removed from reality that he actually believes he can read his diary to a crowd of people and make them laugh or touch them in some way. He does not succeed. He is not smart, not witty and not entertaining.
Get any of the David Sedaris performances to see what real storytelling is like.
It took me a while to get through this book. It was so good that I could do nothing else but listen! No driving, no knitting, no nothin'! As soon as I was fininshed, I started it again. The narrator is very talented. Each character gets a very unique voice. Very richly developed plot and characters. I really felt for them...and was on the edge of my seat. Twisting and turning right along with them.
