    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.

    Story
    "LOVE IT! LOVE HIM!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is hilarious. Absolutely a good time


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ignorance Abroad. I have shared it with my dad-- who was not a David Sedaris fan-- and other family members and they all loved it!


    Any additional comments?

    I dislike most things "live." With his readings the back round laughter is not annoying-- but adds to the mood of his readings. LOVE IT

    "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.

    "Couldn't stop laughing"

    I was listening to this on an airplane, and was afraid I was disturbing others because I just couldn't stop laughing. Great fun!

    "Classic David Sedaris"

    I love David Sedaris's audiobooks. They just can't come out fast enough for me & this one is just as entertaining and enjoyable as all the others. Now comes the wait for his next little slice of genius.
