Listening to this audiobook of hand-selected essays from Sedaris’ 27 years of published works is in turns hilarious and heart-breaking. He is just so good. #25wordbookreviews (amzn)
It’s very earnest, but damn, does it need an editor. Compelling story—I wanted to keep reading—but the technical problems outweighed the interest factor.
Anne’s audiobooks, which she narrates herself, are always comforting. This one’s not for everyone, but I enjoyed it. Good way to start the new year.
This was a difficult book to read — for the content, not the writing — but it turns out to be a spectacularly beautiful story. #25wordbookreviews (Amzn)
I wanted to understand why people are obsessed with true crime. The last chapter helped. It’s still not for me, but I kinda get it. #25wordbookreview (Amzn)
I love novels about the never-quite-complete (but still somehow beautiful) recovery from trauma. This one is hopeful without being trite, about many types of love. #25wordbookreview (Amzn)
God, was this a great book. I didn’t realize how hungry I was to hear modern television discussed as the art form it really is. #25wordbookreviews (Amzn)
The first novel I think I’ve ever read where a woman has an independent lifestyle and a healthy sexual appetite… and isn’t ruined by them. #25wordbookreview (Amzn)
Not so terrible that I stopped reading, I guess. One of those novels where everyone is an asshole and you’re supposed to find it funny. #25wordbookreviews (Amazon)
I would love the book this was advertised to be — but it was actually about three women’s painful sexual experiences, delivered with soft-core porn detail. #25wordbookreviews (Amazon)
