The brilliantly quirky David Sedaris returns with a book of acerbic and outrageously funny stories about animals who have unmistakably human failings.
This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris’s trademark blend of hilarity and good nature. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.
In ‘The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck’, three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In ‘Hello Kitty’, a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In ‘The Squirrel and the Chipmunk’, a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.
Includes an exclusive fable not featured in the book.

Squirrel seeks his credit back
I have other audio books by David Sedaris. The others were pleasing and sometimes laugh out loud. This however was not. The use of other voice actors, lost a lot of the inflection and emphasis on words found in the other readings. It didn't seem to be witty or observed humor at all. In fact rather depressing.I found myself waiting for the next animal to be killed or die in some horrible way. When I was listening that is.
I have heard the author read some of these stories before and they were a little more palatable.
Yes. His observations have been entertaining in the past.
I think that Audible offering the opportunity to get a credit back if you buy a dud, is amazing.
Just plain AWFUL
