    "A great shot of Garrison Keillor..."

    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.

    "Very enjoyable"

    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.

    "Great Material - Flat delivery"

    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.

    "I enjoy Garrison Keillor"
    If you could sum up Lake Wobegon Days in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, interesting, unusual


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Scaring the young boys about digging up a casket.


    Any additional comments?

    It was enjoyable but I had higher expectations from listening to Garrison Keillor over the years.
