"Sidesplitting." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Genuinely funny, at times hilarious....Makes for a smashing use of audio as a unique entertainment medium....Highly likable and spirited throughout...makes a case for audio as its own special form." (Publishers Weekly)
"Sedaris is a gifted satirist with an uncanny knack for re-creating dialogue and revealing fantasies....Brutally honest and brilliantly eloquent, Sedaris is positively tonic." (Booklist)
"Even better in audio"
I had read 'Holidays on Ice' and 'Dress your family...' and thought them tremendously funny and clever. However, hearing the author (and his sister) adds a whole new dimension to his writing. In fact, I think I'll be getting the audio versions the books I've already read. Sad, funny, mordant and completely unique.
I downloaded Naked after listening to David Sedaris on BBC Radio 4. This is an exellent audio book and made what is normally a monotonous commute to work highly enjoyable. I caught myself chuckling away on the bus many times.
If you have read David Sedaris before, then you will enjoy the witty sense of humour and out of the ordinary subject matter - his take on the world is always entertaining. If you have listened to his live recordings on e.g. Radio 4 - his reading style on these audiobooks is not as lively, but still amusing.
