Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Humor, 2013

Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness.

But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the L.A. Four Seasons Hotel doesn't even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!

It's high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!

Luckily, America Again will singlebookedly pull this country back from the brink. Covering subject's ranging from healthcare ("I shudder to think where we'd be without the wide variety of prescription drugs to treat our maladies, such as think-shuddering") to the economy ("Life is giving us lemons, and we're shipping them to the Chinese to make our lemon-flavored leadonade") to food ("Feel free to deep fry this book-it's a rich source of fiber"), Stephen gives America the dose of truth it needs to get back on track.

    "Mostly Funny, Borderline Annoying"

    I’ve always liked Stephen Colbert and I’ve always enjoyed his TV show but his first book and his Christmas song, were really bad. I thought I’d give this audio book another try and glad I did. I know Colbert can be borderline annoying but this book was very funny and he does a great job as a narrator too. I thoroughly enjoyed most of this listen.

    Story
    "Not nearly as funny or effective as the previous"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This second book by Colbert was still pretty funny, but not nearly as much as his first book "I Am America." This book, though funny, was very forgettable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    N/A


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Possibly

    "so so"

    It was okay. Not as good as his other audiobook and can't compare to the Colbert Report. If you're debating between this one or I am America, I say go for the other one. All in all, had a few laughs

    "Entertaining, masterfully narrated but that's that"

    Very entertaining and incredible narration. I didn't expect much but I thought I might learn something from the book. It's hard to trust anything that's being said, so that part was disappointing.

    "Not worth your time."

    pure foolishness. slightly entertaining a couple times. otherwise this book is just misguided and often lacks any understanding of history or truth.
    once again, knowing this is an entertainment book, not very good.

    Story
    "One of the better ones"
    What made the experience of listening to America Again the most enjoyable?

    Stephen's delivery of the material


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It's comedy, nothing super memorable


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't remember


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The previous daily show and Colbert books were good reads, but unfortunately the audio books did not live up to that expectation. This one finally was on par with the book. I don't know if I would recommend it though still, pricey for such a short listen

    "He gets his message across"

    Classic Colbert! Everything you've grown to love about the man. He, cleverly, tells the story of the country we never weren't !

    Story
    "Sorry I bought this one."

    I am a great fan of his TV show and had high hopes for this book. The writing is sophomoric and could well have been written while under the influence is something.

    Although there are a few funny parts, the majority was insulting and just plain dumb!
