Current listen - it‘s been a year and I need funny 🤣
Imagine being stuck in traffic, laughing so hard you are crying, and wondering what all of the other people in their cars are thinking about you. That was this book. From start to finish.
First let me just say, this book is definitely not for everyone. If you've never watched Archer or Bob's Burgers, than you probably won't enjoy the crass humor that Benjamin uses in this book. As a fan of his animated characters though, I found myself laughing throughout most of the book. The whole time I was listening though, it was this image of Archer that kept surfacing in my mind.
Fast, funny read that made my workday go by very quickly.
Listened to this a few weeks ago. Honestly, if it wasn't Bob's voice and I read it instead of listened to it, I wouldn't have liked it. I laughed a little, but mostly couldn't wait to be done.
I've been audioing HP instead of doing my Christmas reread. I just want to keep listening but I'm pacing myself. I really enjoy both versions of the audio, especially sped up.😉
This book is a blast. H. Jon Benjamin has some fantastically funny stories to tell, and I related strongly to his stories about his illness. Definitely recommended for fans of his work. Hearing this as an audiobook made it so much better, and I can't imagine reading it in any other format.
This is definitely one for audiobook. It‘s best in smaller bites. Some of these bits are RITFL but others are not as strong.
I guess I expected more laughs from a comedian's memoir, but some early stories were more of a failure to do much of anything opposed to failing epically at some wacky scheme. Things picked up a bit at the end, but it was still just ultimately OK. Maybe since he reads the audio book, that is a better medium for this book. I'll stick to Archer.
This is an ARC copy but it just hit shelves this week.
