Critic Reviews

"Bodett's short stories are perfect for the audio format, and his matching, low-key, folksy style is equally addictive." (AudioFile)

Classic Americana

Just about every review of Tom Bodett's extraordinarily successful Motel 6 commercials remarks on him empathy. That genuine caring for the regular folks at The End o f the Road is apparent and infectious. These are honest and heart warming stories that deserve more attention. Tom Bodett is a creative talent. A fact belied by his success flogging motel rooms. We have thoroughly enjoyed these stories and hope you will too.

Cute, short, nice stories

A fantastic listen for a family car trip. Fun and wholesome entertainment, spoken by a true master storyteller.

I listened to these as a kid, and again as an adult. I enjoyed them both times.
