I love listening to books and I despise bad narrators.

    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"

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

    He's always funny and totally real. Who wouldn't love this book is the real question? I'm a believer for sure. If he keeps putting material out there, I will keep listening.

  • Girl Walks into a Bar...: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    I took a chance on this book and it paid off. I loved her on SNL, but I liked getting to know who she really is. I am stunned that she is not constantly working in television. She plays such great, memorable characters and she's not afraid to ugly up for a laugh. I think she's a comedic gem and I hope she finds a new television niche. I am rooting for Rachel!

    "You’re not doing it right." Michael Ian Black has been hearing these five words all his life. And now—on the eve of his 40th birthday—he is finally beginning to wonder why. As a husband and father living in the suburbs, Michael asks the questions so many of us ask ourselves at one point or another, including "How did I end up here?" The answers are painstakingly detailed in this, Michael Ian Black’s debut memoir.

    I love his dry, honest humor. If you are married, with children, you will understand every moment of this book. His voice is great and only he could read his stories to you. I cannot emphasize how much I connected to his total honesty. Some might not find this book funny, but think its so much better than just " funny". It's deeper and more raw. i had no idea what to expect, but I loved it.

    Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

    LESLIE DOHENY-HANKS says: "Insightful, interesting and uplifting"

    What did you love best about Love Life?

    Great stories, great narration. I liked him before his books, I love him after. His first book was great too. It makes me want to go back and watch all his old movies.

    In this story of perseverance in the face of adversity, Regina Calcaterra recounts her childhood in foster care and on the streets and how she and her savvy crew of homeless siblings managed to survive years of homelessness, abandonment, and abuse. Regina Calcaterra's emotionally powerful memoir reveals how she endured a series of foster homes and intermittent homelessness in the shadow of the Hamptons, and how she rose above her past while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together.

    Where does Etched in Sand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love books that are read by the author. Regina was the only narrator that could have told this jaw dropping history. I love her accent, it made me connect to her story that much more. I wanted to reach back in time and help her. This book is excellent.

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Richard Delman says: "A singular voice; a horrendous story."

    Would you listen to Still Missing again? Why?

    This story scared me to death and it sucked me in from the get go. The narrator was great. I'm sad that I finished it so quickly. I can't wait to try another book by this author.

    Charlie Gordon knows that he isn't very bright. At 32, he mops floors in a bakery and earns just enough to get by. Three evenings a week, he studies at a center for mentally challenged adults. But all of this is about to change for Charlie. As part of a daring experiment, doctors are going to perform surgery on Charlie's brain. They hope the operation and special medication will increase his intelligence, just as it has for the laboratory mouse, Algernon.

    What made the experience of listening to Flowers for Algernon the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was perfect! One of the best I've heard. The story progresses quickly and it's so thought provoking. I lucked out and got it on the daily deal.
