Listener Opinions

    " Keillor really is a genius! These stories, I listened to them during my drive to Del Rio and back, were at time humorous, creative, off the wall and deeply touching. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Zombori | 8/7/2013

    " I laughed through the entire audio of this book, and I don't even like baseball or softball. Great stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 11/6/2012

    " Hit and miss. Some really entertaining stories, but an equal number of forgettable ones. I enjoy Keillor but this was a bit uneven. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tray | 8/20/2012

    " Some real good short stories. My favorite ones were the quit smoking story and the 5 week family vacation. Give it a listen and tell me your favorite~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 5/12/2012

    " Listened to this audiobook and will give it to my sister. It's good classic Keillor stuff. Unashamedly a bit preachy, but never takes himself too seriously. Not all of these are gems, but neither are my reviews. Makes me want to write like crazy. Can't get enough of the guy from Lake Wobegon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 3/31/2012

    " I did not realize he wrote more than Lake Wobegon... this was very entertaining, especially read by the author on audio! I plan to read more of his work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rachel | 5/8/2011

    " So far, I am just happy to have found Keillor. This is the first of his books I have read but certainly not the last. What a gem! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 2/11/2011

    " I love Garrison Keillor's style; similar in feel to Mark Twain. He's a great humorist, and writes in the same slow, languishing way the Mississippi river runs - beautifully and happily. I only wish he weren't so irreverent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 1/3/2011

    " Laugh out loud funny, my favorite GK book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 11/29/2010

    " Everyone loves Garrison Keillor. This book was him at his best. Loved every page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 8/20/2010

    " Great short stories that made me fall in love with Keillor's writing. ROFL at Homecoming, it was my first and will always be my favorite (until I move to Canada, in which case it will be my favourite) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brooke | 2/1/2010

    " Garrison Keillor has the most lovely sleep-inducing voice, but jesus h christ are his books underwhelming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 9/29/2009

    " A fun read and a companion to Lake Wobegon days "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 8/25/2009

    " I love Keillor's short stories. One reviewer on the back of the book says something about how he can turn a phrase so gently, not even a leaf rustles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 8/23/2009

    " Funny book- Garrison Keillor is awesome "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R.Michael | 8/8/2009

    " I enjoy listening to Garrison Keillor on NPR and it's just as enjoyable reading his Lake Wobegon tales. This is great reading for a snowy sunday afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mo | 7/20/2009

    " Keillor is a great storyteller whose characters come alive with each new tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 7/15/2009

    " Recap of Garrison Keillor's stories from the "Prairie Home Companion" of the 1980s. Radio is better than print. "
