Review - When You Are Engulfed In Flames by David Sedaris

Title: When You Are Engulfed in Flames
Series:: None
Author(s):: David Sedaris
Genre:: Essays, Audio Book
Publisher: Hachette Audio
Release Date: June 3rd 2008
Finished: June 2009
Pages: NA
Challenges: None

My Thoughts: This is a book filled with essays or short stories that involve Sedaris life that I checked out because it was recommended by Yan. I thought the first essay was funny, but the rest of the stories just sound like Sedaris being mean and not that funny. Sure it got a giggle or two out of me when he read some of the essays to a live audience, but I almost didn't finish the audio book, and I barely remember the last couple shorts. Not sure why I didn't just scrap it completely, because near the end listening to it was horrid.

About the Author: David Sedaris has written plays and a few books filled with essays similar to the ones in When You Are Engulfed in Flames

I'm sorry you didn't like this. I've only read Naked by Sedaris so far but I found it hilarious. It seems people either like his works or don't.
