Great book, but...
This is a really great book, but the absolute BEST thing about it is the narration by Kurt Anderson, the author. This guy is amazing. He sounds honest, friendly and very likable. He makes it hard to stop listening. Some narrators are very good but they sound like what they are; professionals. Kurt sounds like a very knowledgeable friend or your favorite professor. I intend to buy every other book he narrates. This book has really helped me understand why Americans are so arrogant and why they don't even realize it.

Doppler traffic and cornflower blue eyes... again!
What did you like best about Scary Monsters and Super Freaks? What did you like least?
I was hoping for salacious and shocking moments, but really, these stories are pretty tame.
Would you recommend Scary Monsters and Super Freaks to your friends? Why or why not?
Maybe. It's a very casual listen, and best in small doses; one story per listen.
Did George Orlando do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Very enjoyable reader. Character's were distinctive but never over-the-top. Good job.
Was Scary Monsters and Super Freaks worth the listening time?
I skipped a few of the stories because the subject or character did not interest me.
Any additional comments?
Doppler traffic and Cornflower Blue Eyes. Keep this in mind while listening!
