    "Loved it!"

    Picked this up tentatively since it had some negative reviews, but it had me cracking up in the car and giggling in the super market...

    "No one is funnier reading their own words!"

    David Sedaris at his best! I laughed all the way through this hour plus talk. I just love how his mind works. He has perfect timing, he lets the audience laugh and catch up to his next funny line.

    Story
    "Laughed the whole way through"
    Would you listen to David Sedaris again? Why?

    I love David Sedaris. The first time I heard him he was describing his job as a Macys Santa Elf and I was hooked from there. He's an understated and engaging writer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I dont think I had a favorite character per se.


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

    Yes. And this one has been funnier than the others Ive read


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

    There were plenty of times were I was laughing out loud


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really good collection of shorts. The only problem is. It's so short. I thought my app had malfunctioned when it ended an hour and change into the recording.

    "Disappointing"

    My fault. I wasn't paying attention. I just saw "unabridged" and the price ($14.98) and thought it would be more than one hour and 15 minutes. And this was to download it onto my OWN CDs. I feel ripped off, but have learned a $14.98 lesson.
