If you could sum up Naked in three words, what would they be?
I loved it.
What other book might you compare Naked to and why?
You can't really compare his unique style to other writers. It's very engaging and funny without being self-absorbed.
I had read 'Holidays on Ice' and 'Dress your family...' and thought them tremendously funny and clever. However, hearing the author (and his sister) adds a whole new dimension to his writing. In fact, I think I'll be getting the audio versions the books I've already read. Sad, funny, mordant and completely unique.

If you have read David Sedaris before, then you will enjoy the witty sense of humour and out of the ordinary subject matter - his take on the world is always entertaining. If you have listened to his live recordings on e.g. Radio 4 - his reading style on these audiobooks is not as lively, but still amusing.

What would have made Naked better?
The story telling. It was dark humour I guess but I had read previous reviews that said it was laugh out loud stuff.
What was most disappointing about David Sedaris’s story?
They were just a series of stories that didn't string together in any way. I
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He told the story with the same monotone voice. The female narrator was better.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Naked?
The opening scenes where David portrays himself growing up did him no favours.
Any additional comments?
Not my favourite book. Although I do wonder if some of his other work would be better.
