A must for teachers of high school English. I showed it around and now everyone in the department wants one! What a hoot!

Anyone familiar with the stories contirned in this volume - will appreciate the humour. The author manages to reduce large tomes, hundreds of pages in length - to one page, without losing any of the story in the process. My favorie line in the whole book goes somethign like this 'and on and on for several hundred pages where nothing much hapesns. This of course sums uup the problem with classicla literture well - it is very long winded - were the authors paied by the word?

Got this as a joke gift, and was blown away by how funny the Fast Talker really is. You can hear his humor on some clearly not funny stories. The whole concept is brilliant and I can't imagine one person who would not thoroughly enjoy this book/cd!!!
