    "Seemed a little forced (though he warns you)"

    I really like Lewis' insight, but it seems a little stretched out over an entire book. He warns at the beginning that he didn't really want to do this book with a whole "My agent says I should write a book" story. At first it seemed like just an anecdote to start the book...but then I really believed that he was doing it just for the money.

    Eventually, he gets into some interesting insights and commentary on modern society. But nothing really earth shattering or amazing, but somewhat amusing. The story he shares to end it was definitely the highlight for me - the real example of the meaning of the season and how it is not really tied to religion (Surprise!).

    His narration is fine. I don't think it would work to have anyone else doing it, but it is hard to maintain the Lewis Rage for 5 hours.

    "Disappointing"

    I'm a huge fan of Lewis Black and love all of his other stuff - books and performances - but this book doesn't come close to what I expect from him. He doesn't really say anything, and takes a long time to do it. To be fair, I quit listening half-way through. Perhaps it gets better...

    "Passing the torch"

    Before his death, the great George Carlin said Lewis Black was his favorite comedian out there today and books like this clearly show that Carlin was right. Extremely funny and Black as the narrator is great!

    "this rocks"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas to be better than the print version?

    yes, because the author reads and performs it.

    I just spent $50 to hear him live for an hour. This was $15 to hear him live for 5 hours. What a deal!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    silly question


    What does Lewis Black bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Lewis Black


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Lewis Black is one of my greatest fun times in audible purchases. Go for it!
