Sorry Dave. You have overdone boogers.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

Maybe. I'm looking for funny and laughter. Can't find much to laugh about doing cancer.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Am still looking.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

No real problem with narrator. Material just not that funny.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

Actually, I liked "1000 Years of Laughter" better, and it started with monk's riddles.
