Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle | [Si Robertson, Mark Schlabach]

Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle

The brother of patriarch Phil Robertson, Uncle Si has a limitless supply of stories about his childhood, duck hunting adventures, his days in Vietnam, and everything in between. Now the best of those tales are gathered into this roaring collection.

Si shares stories of the more than 25 marriage proposals he's received in the mail (some with photos!), how he came to use a green Tupperware cup for his ever-present sweet tea, and how his cigarette smoke made a deer cough (he's since quit smoking).

"These hands are so fast, I can get your wallet before you know it. In a minute, you'll be standing there buck naked and won't know what hit you!"

    "Audible's description inaccurate"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Audible description says that Si Robertson is the narrator of this audio book. Si's voice is on the introduction or forward but his "nephew in law" narrated everything else. I'm certainly not going to criticize any of Si's family but I was looking forward to hearing Si's voice.Audible does need to correct the information about who actually narrated the book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Si Robertson?

    I would prefer that Si actually be narrator of the book. No one can replace him.Audible needs to correct the information on the description.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Why? It is already on A&E.


    Any additional comments?

    The program would have been better if Si had narrated the whole book rather than just the introduction or forward. He could have been promised a nap and fresh iced tea between chapters!

    "PREACH SI! 6 out of 5 stars JACK!"
    What did you love best about Si-cology 1?

    I really enjoyed how the story was laid out for the listener. Unlike other books of this nature that drag on endlessly until a conclusion that is beyond lackluster, in his book you can almost see whats going to happen, but at the same time the outcome (which you may already know) is viewed in an entirely different light. I also liked how this wasn't just a make it rich quick sell it why it's hot type book. It also lays out how Si isn't a character fabricated by a grad school producer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The obvious answer to most would be Si and he is high on my list, but his wife Christine sounds like an awesome woman who endured a lot physically, mentally, and emotionally. Her story was just as compelling in my ow opinion and the courage she showed in the face of adversity should be lesson for all.


    Have you listened to any of Si Robertson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Well, I guess Duck Dynasty on TV would be the only other platform and this book is just as good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    Take my word for it this book isn't about striking why the iron is hot. It's well written, well told, and well put together. Worth every cent jack!

    "Should Have Been Si"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Si-cology 1 to be better than the print version?

    Don't know.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Si-cology 1?

    His stories of Vietnam--particularly the story of the missing engine.


    What didn’t you like about Si Robertson’s performance?

    The narrator did a good job. However, I would have appreciated Si reading the whole book--not just the opening and closing chapters.

    "Terrible narration...not Uncle Si."

    I was really looking forward to listening to 4 hours of Uncle Si spin his tale, 95% truthful, of course. That's not what I got. Uncle Si introduces the book, then turns it over to the most terrible narrator. I don't believe I have heard worse on any Audible book I've listened to. I was disappointed in this. If you can suffer through the narration, it's an enjoyable look into the life of Uncle Si...just wish he had narrated the whole book.

    I gave the book an overall rating of 4 stars because I'm a fan of the show and Uncle Si, but the narration was just terrible.

    "Missing Something"

    If you watch the show Duck Dynasty you know how ridiculous Uncle Si can be, but some of that fun is in his delivery of his joke or quip. That’s what’s lacking in this book. Some of his stories are interested and funny, but without him and his signature tea glass it seems to be missing something.

    The narration was good but not much in the way of different voices since it's pretty much told through Si's eyes.

    "Less than expected..."
    What could Si Robertson and Mark Schlabach have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Leave out the stories that even a child would find hard to believe like people carrying a truck engine through a lake - under the water...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Should have been Si.
