David Sedaris is at his usual level of fantastic with this book. In addition to being hilarious and thought provoking, I really felt like he was letting his guard down for the first time. There was some interesting, and I felt honest, insights into Sedaris' politics, beliefs and interpersonal relations that go a little deeper than in his previous books.

So not your book if you're easily offended by jabs at social norms and religion, or dislike same-sex relationships, Democrats or French people.

For the rest of us, it's awesome.

    I wish bn would put a stop to these kids using the nook as a playground for these stupid rp games. This is a book review site children. Take these stupid posts somewhere else. They do not belong here.

    Cranky old man

    There really is a time when "cynical" becomes plain mean. You are a bitter and mean man Mr. Sadaris. A person's pain can ennoble, or cause greater empathy. Sorry to say you chose viciousness thinly cloaked as "humor." Dear reader, don't fall for reviews as I did. Choose something to bring a little joy, mystery, or humor to your life. You deserve more than this mock-humorous diatribe for your hard earned dollars.

    Not as funny as previous Sedaris works.

    Bought the CD because I enjoy hearing Sedaris "tell the story." I felt it was not as humorous as much of his other work. I loved Squirrel and Chipmunk but Owls.... disappointed me.

    I wanted to like it-- I really did.  When he isn't spouting potty humor (phlegm and terms) he is full of self-serving better-than-you "isn't my life amazing?" commentary.
