In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor").

Where does Dad Is Fat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in the top ten for sure.

What does Jim Gaffigan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like that he reads it himself. I'm a fan of his comedy so him reading it made it better.

Any additional comments?

Jim Gaffigan hits the nail on the head on raising children. I laughed out loud so many times!

Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge - Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing - or curse - gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of bad boy Michael Garland.

James Patterson's scariest, sexiest stand-alone thriller since The Quickie. Ben isn't like most people. Unable to control his racing thoughts, he's a man consumed by his obsessions: movies, motorcycles, presidential trivia - and Diana Hotchkiss, a beautiful woman Ben knows he can never have. When Diana is found dead outside her apartment, Ben's infatuation drives him on a hunt to find out what happened to the love of his life.

What would have made Mistress better?

I'm a huge fan of JP and blindly bought this book without sampling. It's annoying and awful! I'm really disappointed. In fact, this is the first time I've reviewed a book this negatively. I've tried and tried to get into it, but I just can't.

What was most disappointing about James Patterson and David Ellis ’s story?

The main character is intolerable.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin T. Collins’s performances?

I don't think the narrator was the problem. I would probably give him another shot.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.
