Recommended for: Midwesterners
Read in November, 2007

This book was amusing, but it certainly wasn't the Keillor I expected after I saw him speak about six months ago. I expected the book to be a lot more funny, but this one fell short. It had very amusing moments, but not enough to call it a "funny" book. I did, however, learn a lot about Midwestern (Minnesotean) attitudes, which I found enlightening and interesting. If you're from the Midwest, I'd certainly recommend this -- it probably strikes true. If you're not, I'd leave it for something else.

However, I won't write off Keillor all together, yet. I'll definitely read some other works of his to see how they match up.

However, however, his writing is FANTASTIC. Fluid, graceful, and superb. His style alone would have kept me interested.
