a book, music and film lover
I loved this book when I first read it years ago, I love listening to Keillor's voice on the radio, and this is the perfect combo. This was a great way to lighten my day to and from work.
I have so say, I amost didn't make it past the first chapter -- Man, it is slow. Once I got past it, I loved pretty much everything after it. Garrison Keillor reads it like a champ. I have listened to it many times, and still laugh at the residents of Lake Wobegon. If you can get past the first chapter, I think you will like this book, too.
If you love the radio show as I do, you will come to realize how much the response of the audience adds to GK's stories. This title would be more enjoyable as a printed book, but left me flat as an audio title.
Funny, interesting, unusual
Scaring the young boys about digging up a casket.
It was enjoyable but I had higher expectations from listening to Garrison Keillor over the years.
