Journal Entry 1 by potok-fan from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Tuesday, April 06, 2010
I've tried one audiobook (link to come) and started this hard-copy, but I'm afraid I'm just not a David Sedaris fan. Every once in a while, a line is funny enough to tempt me to keep reading, but the bleakness in between the lines gets to me. In the end, I'm going to give it away half-read and move on to something I enjoy more.

One line I laughed at: When I was young, my family moved from western New York State to Raleigh, North Carolina. Together, we northerners made relentless fun of our new neighbors and their poky, backward way of life. Our parents discouraged us from using the titles "ma'am" or "sir" when addressing a teacher or shopkeeper. Along with grits and hush puppies, the abbreviated form of you all was a dangerous step on an insidious path leading straight to the doors of the Baptist church.

Taking this to a local BC-meeting. If it hasn't been claimed by the end of the evening, we'll leave it in the pub for someone else to find.

This has somehow slipped from my fingers when I have been choosing books to read from my bc pile (Sorry). Now that I read it I found the little essays mostly funny and sympathetic. Entertaining for one suffering of flu at least.

Great book, excellent travel reading! Especially the second part where he moves to France and tries to learn the language. "To hell with you and your bottleneck!"

I feel a bit ambivalent about this book. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't love it either. Just not my kind of humour I don't think!

Will be coming with me to be released in Hobart at the Australasian Unconvention in a couple of weeks time.
