    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "Freaking hilarious!"
    Where does Dating a Stripper is A Recipe for Perspective rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It isn't really an audiobook, more like a comedy bit.


    What other book might you compare Dating a Stripper is A Recipe for Perspective to and why?

    None.


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

    This is an essay, but it pretty much is a stand-up bit. If you like Oswalt this is really funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed... A lot...


    Any additional comments?

    This is funny and if you are a hard core fan get it. The problem is that it is incredibly short (8 minutes). So, don't waste a credit. It is less than $2 to buy. If you don't like Patton Oswalt pass on this one.

    "Great way to pass the time waiting for an elevator"
    What made the experience of listening to Dating a Stripper is A Recipe for Perspective the most enjoyable?

    If you have some minor experience with audiobooks, you may have noticed that many audiobooks only have the one narrator throughout the book and it can be difficult to understand or follow. For such a small story, it was great to not have patton oswalt voice himself, the stripper, and his wife


    What other book might you compare Dating a Stripper is A Recipe for Perspective to and why?

    I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, and only because of the language as well how personal the story was. It just reminds me of Tucker Max's book.


    What about Patton Oswalt’s performance did you like?

    It was like hearing him on, "The King of Queens" or "United States of Tara"- familiar, nothing extravagant but certainly entertaining.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    too short to be a film obviously


    Any additional comments?

    Audible should make it a free download as I could not justify spending a credit nor paying for it. Sorry Patton. Also, I wish the book was available in audiobook format in its entirety, not just this small section.

    Story
    "Terrible, horrible, bad attempt at humor."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone with very dry humor who can dig through the muck to get a tiny laugh out of a bad joke.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patton Oswalt again?

    No. Definitely not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice was speeding through the book and was soooo annoying the way they portrayed the stripper.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration that I spent 3 minutes of my life downloading this book.
