    " Great short stories about men, all humorous and some which did indeed make me lol "

    " The first few stories were clever and fun to read. Then the stories got longer and less clever. If you're interested in reading Keillor, I might check into another one of his works - one where the charm doesn't wear out so fast. "

    " I had heard that this one was darker than his normal stuff and I heard right. Still worth a read, though, and respect to Keillor for trying something different. Some standout stories make the whole experience worth it, though others are just not as enjoyable. "

    " I liked this book. Keillor's Minnesota, dry, low-key sense of humor is not for everyone. Sometimes I wonder whether if you have never lived in the Midwest, much of his "Prairie Home Companion" show and/or books won't make sense to you. They do for me since I lived in Wisconsin for three years. "
