39.8% "As he moves along, some of the content gets a little rambly, but it's not easy to edit a life. He still is hooking me in, with is saying something, with non- fiction."

46.71% "I liked Planet of the Apes. Again, a little rambly, but it made me the tiniest bit guilty for never picking up hitchhikers. He definitely LIVED his life. Good for him."

50.33% "Defaults is a self-admitted bad person. Or at least he used to be. The Incomplete Quad is a sadder, more bitter story than those preceding."

66.45% ""C.O.G" was a very long story that could have very well be split into two shorter, more interesting pieces: one about apple-picking, and one about the jade clock. Putting them together made it feel rambly and one part got lost from the other."

82.24% "As he gets older, Sedaris' stories become less focused, usually sharing two stories under one title."

page 291
95.72% "I've noticed that Sedaris feels the need to explain all of his motivation in detail before telling the reader the story. Okay, that's fine. Took me until the end of the book to figure it out."
