it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, own

I’m glad I got this as a gift because I would have been pretty disappointed if I had paid the full $22 cover price. After hearing so many people say how funny Sedaris is, I went into Squirrel with relatively high expectations. I was disappointed. What the publishers call “fables” I considered more as long jokes with mediocre punch-lines. There were a few stories that captured my attention, but I was expecting to laugh out loud and at best, it yielded a few eye rolls and unimpressed groans.

jana Blazek yes- i'm sorry i'm sorry i'm sorry! once you've recovered, try "me talk pretty one day." or, look online and find a recording of sedaris reading "jesus shaves." it's about the funniest thing i've ever heard. please don't vote me off the book choosing island! (but the did the little corn snake make you think of scooter? :) )

Julie No hard feelings! I didn't pay for it and for that I am grateful.
