Sad has never been so hilarious

If you could sum up True Porn Clerk Stories in three words, what would they be?

I don't know. Why do I have to write a review based on your criteria? The book is a quick read (or listen as the case may be) and totally hilarious in an "oh my God do these people really exist?" kind of way.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ali. Why? Because she kicks ass and manages to be hilarious while asking deep social, psychological, and philosophical questions.

Have you listened to any of Ali Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is her first, but I hope it's not her last.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It's like Empire Records, but funnier, creepier, and...*ahem*....stickier.

Any additional comments?

This book will not disappoint. And if it does, then you have bad taste.

Great Great Great Read

Where does True Porn Clerk Stories rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far I think this has to be one of my favourite books, as a previous adult store employee I could definitely relate to most of her stories and I loved Ali's views on sex in our modern world as well as the taboos sex has against it. She's got a great sense of humour and really gets it. Her ideas are very eloquently thought out and she makes a lot of sense. Not only is this a great journal but it does really make you think. I would highly recommend this. I only wish it were longer so I could have more to enjoy.

So. Funny.

Ali Davis keeps a straight face and a kind heart.

For anyone who's been in the retail trenches, or spent time in the sweat-scented aisles of an old fashioned video store, Ali Davis is your voice.

Ali has so much compassion for her customers, while still recognizing the shiftiness and downright unlikability of others. My favorite story is of Ali finding her moment of power, channeling her inner High School Principal and expelling a "jerker" from the porn basement—but things were not what they seemed.

Human nature is laid bare; the politics of singles, couples, and groups; and the "drift" from vanilla to kink. Ali records the faces that people present versus what they rent.

I found this a fun and funny look into customer service at a porn store. Alli shows a unique feminist perspective

Fun

Funny and interesting. Wouldn't have bought it at full price, but the discount from Kindle Unlimited was enough to get me to try it.
