    " enjoying this one a lot on audio... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 2/12/2014

    " Very quick read, cute short stories. Like David Sedaris, it seems like the author has really lived a lot in a few years. I preferred the stories of him as a child - slightly less introspective and more amusing. I felt like some of the stories stopped short - I needed more character development, or more of an explanation. But overall I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/10/2014

    " I really enjoy Kevin Kling view on life. The stories were funny and heartwarming. I could hear his voice as I read the stories. We gave this book for Christmas gifts and everyone enjoyed it, and they weren't Minnesotans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/6/2014

    " Big hearted and hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 2/3/2014

    " Really enjoyed this book. For me, this book had a personal side as well since I went to college with Kevin and was able to connect his childhood life with the person I knew via the short stories in this book. His droll wit most definitely comes through. A delight! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 1/31/2014

    " I borrowed this book from the library and liked it so much I bought a copy for me and for 2 friends. Funny, entertaining stories with meaning. Kling describes going to a drive-in movie so realistically, I traveled back 40 years in a flash. I laughed out loud about his band experiences. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 1/22/2014

    " I received this book as a gift from my daughter who lives in the Twin Cities. Lots of things about the book were appealing including an extension off local things about Minneasota which is offered by Garrison Keillor also. I am glad I had time to read it. Kevin combines comic and poignant. It shows insight about the human condition and life in community with others. Kevin has things to say. Short book with short chapters. An easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hollie Radomski | 1/20/2014

    " I love his storytelling! His stories are sincere, thoughtful and so hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Rasmussen | 1/17/2014

    " What a great story teller Kevin Kling is! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annterlizzi | 12/12/2013

    " Kevin is an amazing storyteller. His work is best in person so you can get the nuances of the deliveries, but the book is still hilarious, true MN and very heartwarming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 11/29/2013

    " A good series of stories that stand on their own very well. Only criticism is that the stories could have been organized in a more coherent fashion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 11/18/2013

    " A fast read, very engaging, lovely memories and anecdotes. This is a marvelous feel-good book that rings very true. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 11/13/2013

    " I loved this book. The essays reminded me of a modern day Garrison Keilor. I loved how it was set in Minneapolis and I really enjoyed his writing. I also liked that I could get through an essay a night and not have to remember what was going on the next time I picked it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 11/10/2013

    " Easy Stories that connect well to a philosophy of life and living which is very comfortable and profound, humorous as well in a very midwestern way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 10/23/2013

    " Kevin Kling is so durn gung-ho about life and just so Minnesotan. This book is great if you're looking for some nice, non-disturbing bed-time stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 9/25/2013

    " This book is really really funny. Some of Kling's stories of his childhood in Minnesota remind me of my own adventures. However, I didn't go to the emergency room quite as frequently as he did. I wonder if some people are simply predestined for accidents and personal injury. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 9/7/2013

    " Enjoyable read for the most part. (a few "slow" chapters in second half of book. Obviously animal lover -- weaving the dog "lessons of life" into the content. Question: What do you think the cover picture is trying to say? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marsha | 2/12/2013

    " This is a collection of goofy autobiographical stories that I didn't care for at all in the beginning -- but for some reason I kept listening, and did end up enjoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. The author is from Minnesota and gives little stories about his life. He has a good sense of humor. A very quick read and insightful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Scruggs | 12/26/2012

    " Really good. Funny and interesting. I even cried a little. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 5/28/2012

    " I'm a fan of Kling. He is one of the few people I can think of that is a professional storyteller without using that term figuratively. I think he's pretty funny. His stories are sometimes too sentimental for some tastes, but not for mine. This collection is a good sampling of his raconteur art. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby Sominski | 4/16/2012

    " What an interesting guy ... I really enjoyed this book, it helps that he likes dogs and mentions german shorthair pointers - which I have and love! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 3/28/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 1/1/2012

    " Funny in a sort of Keillor/Sedaris combo kind of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 1/4/2010

    " The funny stories are better than the philosophical ones. I loved the one about the Twins game and "Taxidermy." I, too, love Minnesota. "
