Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Quinn | 6/14/2011

    " Dave starts the book with the most hillarious historical recap of the years 1000-1999. I haven't laughed out loud that hard for a long time. Great funny read absolutely not worth the paper it's printed on in literary terms "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 6/3/2011

    " Loved some of Barry's other books; didn't think this one worked. Bits are funny, but overall,
    it doesn't suceed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/5/2011

    " This is a collection of Barry's year-in-review columns from 2000 through 2006. I love years in review, and he has a funny take on what were then current events. It's a good mix of clever wit and plain silliness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 5/4/2011

    " Dave's yearly recaps are probably my favorite of his writing. Found it hilarious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 4/11/2011

    " This book had me laughing so hard I was crying. I'm a huge Dave Barry fan, and haven't read anything of his that hasn't cracked me up. I did get kind of bored of the format at the end... but that didn't stop me from laughing :) This is a good book to re-read over and over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 4/4/2011

    " I just really didn't think it was that funny, and I really like Dave Barry. I was pretty disappointed. There were some really funny bits, but mostly I just felt like he was trying too hard. It got kind of rambling and annoying after awhile - well, to me, anyway. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 S | 2/23/2011

    " Humor books are better when they're funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/27/2011

    " A very quick read, but so very funny.
    I definitely laughed outloud at a few parts.
    All those news stories you ever wanted to make fun of... he does for you! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edlives | 1/9/2011

    " I quirky rendition of history as documented by one of America's funniest humorists.

    Let's just say I wouldn't take a history exam off of this book, however it is a very entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/10/2010

    " Funny - very like Jon Stewart's take on history. Quick and enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 9/9/2010

    " The always funny Mr. Barry gives us not only his version of the history of the current millennium (the one that began in 2000), but also an abridged and hilarious account of the one we recently finished (1000-1999). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ezra | 6/21/2010

    " Typically hilarious crap from Dave Barry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 6/12/2010

    " Dave Barry's view of history had me laughing each page. Wish he was still a weekly newspaper columnist, so that I don't have to wait for the book. "
