    Fans of the #1 bests eller Sh*t My Dad Says will recognize the always patient voice of Justin Halpern's dad as it crackles through this hysterical new audiobook. The story begins when Justin announces that he's decided to propose to his girlfriend. "You've been dating her for four years," his dad replies. "It ain't like you found a parallel fucking universe."

    Jay says: "Funny but nowhere like the the first book."
    "Do yourself a favor and don't buy this"

    What would have made I Suck at Girls better?

    Ok. I don't think I've ever given a bad review Sh*t My Dad Says was very good. It is better than this book in every conceivable way. The story was good, it was funny, the narrator was good. None of which is true for this book. I literally struggled through 30 minutes of it before I simply could not take anymore of it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Justin Halpern again?

    Halpern has a lot of potential. I expected a lot more which is probably why I was so disappointed.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance between the two characters created a very annoying contrast. The dad sounded like something in between a baboon and a character on the Muppets. Well not in between... 85% Muppet. Gruff, non realistic, voice. Just awful and annoying. Nobody talks like that and I could not relate to the characters at all.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Suck at Girls?

    the entire book and pick a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a better pick check out anything by Mike Birbiglia. Same space, better writing and hilarious.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"
    "Incredible"
    Overall

    I've listened to a lot of books on audible. This is a sleeper and by far my favorite. Rob crushes it! Awe inspiring but calm and amazing in its own way. I didn't know who he was before and now I'm a huge fan. Best of of luck Rob .. from a new (and real) fan who won't show up in your underwear! If family life permits, I would love to see more in the future. Please...
