I'm not a prude, but I don't find the F word inherently hilarious. Profanity in a joke is fine, but when the use of profanity IS the joke, it gets tedious really quickly. This book is good for a smirk or two (especially if you're listening to Samuel L Jackson's narration of it), and would be a cute gift for expectant parents who consider themselves "edgy," but a little more variation in the father's exasperation, even if it was just more creative swearing, would have gone a long way. Overrated.
