Bream Gives Me Hiccups
- By: Jesse Eisenberg
- Narrated by: Jesse Eisenberg, Hallie Eisenberg, Annapurna Sriram, and others
- Length: 4 hrs and 28 mins
Taking its title from a group of stories that begin the book, Bream Gives Me Hiccups moves from contemporary LA to the dorm rooms of an American college to ancient Pompeii, throwing the listener into a universe of social misfits, reimagined scenes from history, and ridiculous overreactions. In one piece a tense email exchange between a young man and his girlfriend is taken over by the man's sister, who is obsessed with the Bosnian genocide ("The situation reminds me of a little historical blip called the Karadordevo agreement").
the mix of narrative style and form was intriguing

Most of the stories were hilarious, a very good read. similar to B.J.Novak's book of short stories but so much better.
