DAVID SEDARIS LIVE AUDIO BOOK: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
DAVID
SEDARIS

LIVE FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE
WRITTEN AND READ BY DAVID SEDARIS

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:

If you were lucky enough to have caught a performance on David Sedaris's most recent sold-out, 34-city tour, you already know that David Sedaris Live For Your Listening Pleasure is a must-have album! If you didn't hear it live and in person, then you're in for a treat-hilarious brand-new recordings from performances in Denver, New York, Durham, LA, and Atlanta, in one convenient audiobook collection, on sale November 24 for only $17.98. From the bold feral rabbits of his French backyard to the eating habits of a carnivorous bird Down Under, Live For Your Listening Pleasure takes listeners on a veritable tour of natural wonders, beginning with a fable, "Cat and Baboon," and moving on to the peculiarly American habitat of the "big-box" store. Available in CD and Digital Download formats. Also available in special edition Vinyl.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

David Sedaris is a playwright and a regular commentator for National Public Radio. He is also the author of the bestselling Barrel Fever, Naked, Holidays on Ice, Dress Your Family in Corduroy, Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Me Talk Pretty One Day. He travels extensively though Europe and the United States on lecture tours and lives in France.


REVIEW:

If you have ever read any of David Sedaris's books then you know how hilarious he is. However, if you haven't seen him in person, or at least HEARD him, you are in for a treat. The first book I heard him read was WHEN YOU ARE ENGULFED IN FLAMES and I would listen in my car on my way to and from work. I often stayed in the car a little longer just to get to a stopping point. I laughed out loud all by myself until tears ran down my cheeks. He has a way of reading his stories that is a special treat. This compilation is for those of us who have never been lucky enough to see him live in all his concerts and lecture tours. Even if you have, you will relive it again with just as much humor and hilarity. I think you can't pick out a favorite part but for me, one of the funniest bits he does is Laugh, Kookaburra. If you want a really fun and get your mind off your troubles, listen to his! This is a rare treat! By the way, how clever and not surprising that Sedaris even has this coming out in special edition Vinyl (a record for those of you who have no idea...the thing before CDs, MP3s, Tapes, and 8 tracks!)

I love Sedaris' audio books - no one can read his work like he can. I'm so glad this is as good as his other work. No need to enter me.

I think David Sedaris is simply brillant! I read Holidays on Ice and listened to Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim & When You Are Engulfed in Flames while sitting in the carpool lane last year at my childrens' school. I really enjoy his reading of his own books. I also purchased his sister's entertaining book and it brings me a good giggle everytime I read it!

Thanks so much for the entry!
