I was led to believe that this was a literary travelogue, but it was supposed to be comedy; I was very disappointed.
The repeated pronunciations of words, correctly and incorrectly, was nothing but annoying.
This might appeal to someone who likes comedy, but I didn't find it funny.
"An intimate look into the sexual explorations of one of the most provocative women on the planet."
But in all seriousness this was one of the funniest things I've ever heard. You are given a behind the scenes glance at what it's really like to sit in a recording booth behind a microphone with your $50 check and try to deliver an interesting portrayal of the Author's vision. Fred Armisen is one of the wittiest minds of his generation and I look forward to more readings from Portlandia characters especially Peter & Nance.
Hm I'm confused about this book I can't put my finger on it. Lmao it's an alright book kind of caught my attention. Not sure if I'll listen to the full book or not though.
Can't wait for more episodes! Such a sensual story of romance during European travels. I was writhing with pleasure the entire time.
"Amusing parody of audio books"
It's short. It's funny. It's free.
Love the way Candace (Fred) parodies the sometimes excessive descriptive devices of fiction and the highly stylized reading style present in some audio books.
I'm looking forward to the new season of Portlandia. In the meantime, I encourage you to check out Carrie Brownstein's new book / audiobook Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl.
when it ended I didn't realize the time went by so quickly, I would have loved to listen to a full length story, Fred armisen is a comedy genius
"I Writhe As I Write This Review!"
Everything! It was absolutely hilarious!
Fifty Shades of Grey! Hey, I never read it fully or listened to it but from a few excerpts it is equally ridiculous. What makes this a win is that it's comedy... and the other is awfully written romanticised rape.
You only have to listen to KNOW what he brings to the table. If I had read this, I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much, and I wouldn't have laughed all the way through.
It's fifteen minutes long so, yes. It is short, and satisfying.
Get it! It's free and hilarious!
"I'm Writhing As I Write This..."
Free drag Fred Armisen (is that redundant?)--what's not to love? Chock-full of good quotes--enjoy!
"Very funny and free"
This audio book is short , a great laugh, and FREE. would definitely recommend it to anyone who has a few minutes to kill.
"funniest thing you'll listen to today"
genius love free and I love portlandia, Candace is done expertly and the plot ain't bad either
"A Short, Free, Fun Listen"
This has a few laugh-out-loud moments even for those unfamiliar with Fred Armison's work or this character. Even my husband enjoyed it, and he had never heard of either before. Good, but not great. Grade: B-minus. Thanks for the free gift, Audible!
"Fred Armisen: Genius."
Firstly I think it's great that it's free. Portlandia is one of my favourite shows and candace is my favourite character off of the show so having this travelogue of her being sassy and completely oblivious of how naive she is; is amazing. Fred Armisen as always did a great job and I hope that there may be more to come. What's also great is that I decided to use portlandia as a basis of one of my essays for university (as a I study media and sociology; so I thought that the show is a great foundation for discussion and it's also hilarious) so having this audio book free gives me doe thug more to discuss and creates a multi media background for me to analysis so I think it's great. Very excited for the new episodes as always!
