Whoopi Goldberg Book (2 Cassettes)

Overview


Hey. Hey, you. Yeah, you. The one looking at the computer screen. I'm so glad you're reading about this. I wrote it and read it so you'd listen to it.

Now, here's where I'm supposed to say all kinds of hip, Whoopi-esque stuff to get you to buy this. Reading about this is just the first step. Buying it—that's a whole other contract. So this is when we seal the deal, when I tell you, in my own inimitable way, how uproarious and provocative this...

Overview


Hey. Hey, you. Yeah, you. The one looking at the computer screen. I'm so glad you're reading about this. I wrote it and read it so you'd listen to it.

Now, here's where I'm supposed to say all kinds of hip, Whoopi-esque stuff to get you to buy this. Reading about this is just the first step. Buying it—that's a whole other contract. So this is when we seal the deal, when I tell you, in my own inimitable way, how uproarious and provocative this audiobook is, how out there, uncensored, cutting edge and whatever else I can think to throw into the mix.

Or, I could say things like, "Not since War and Peace. . . " or "Move over, Alice Walker. . . " or "This audiobook does for the spoken word what Pat Boone did for heavy metal. . . " Well, come on now. Let's face it, if this audiobook were all those things it'd be a novel, and I wouldn't resort to such low tactics. You'd just buy it and go home, or wait for someone to turn it into a movie. So I'll give it to you straight. This audiobook doesn't suck.

It'll make you laugh—maybe not out loud, but in that place deep down where you know a good joke when you hear one. It'll make you think—also not out loud, because, you know, that'd be a little strange. It may shock you. Hell, it might even get you to reconsider a few things, and consider a few others for the first time.

You can take this audiobook to bed, or to the beach, and it won't ask you to swallow, or rub lotion on its back. It doesn't cost a whole lot of money. And (best of all!) it's collectible. Buy a few—one to listen to and a couple more to set aside for your retirement, 'cause these suckers are gonna go upin value like nobody's business. Trust me on this. One to listen to, and a couple more to set aside. You won't be sorry.

And neither will I.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sex, religion, politics, men's bathroom habitsno topic is sacred in this witty and brutally honest collection of unrelated pieces by veteran comic Goldberg (Book, Rob Weisbach: Morrow, 1997). At times, this is much like a stale stand-up comedy routine poking fun at the usual topics like driving habits and bodily functions. However, there is another dimension to Goldberg's keen wit and eloquent delivery that makes this a thought-provoking and multilayered monolog. Goldberg's relaxed, conversational tone, peppered with much colorful (and, for some listeners, objectionable) language keeps the listener entranced as she becomes, in turn, reflective, angry, and nostalgicbut, above all, always surprising and very, very funny. Though the book received almost universally negative reviews, hearing Goldberg read her material makes it a totally different experience. The language will limit this to open-minded adult audiences.

    BOOK...

    Well as usual Whoopi Goldberg is being herself,the book was full of laughs and quiet entertaining. Whoopi Goldberg is successful in both as a comedian and a writer,and she's not afraid to say her opinion on various things,very good work.
