Funny and Fun

I love the sound of Dan Savage's voice; I've enjoyed listening to him since I went through the This American Life archives, so I love picking up the audible books that he narrates.

I delayed listening to The Kid because I wasn't certain how relevant it would seem today. Other than a few minor references that make it clear that this story wasn't written yesterday (mostly references to where LGBT rights are, or how living in Seattle was then) this story is deeply touching. It's about trying to make a family, how people relate to each other and define their roles, and of course, Dan Savage being himself. A very sweet, funny, and touching story. Highly recommended!

Loved it!

If you could sum up The Kid in three words, what would they be?

Intimate, honest, entertaining

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I listened to the whole audiobook in one day while I was running errands. I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter to see how the story played out.

Any additional comments?

I love with Dan narrates his own books, and also love when he's writing about his own life. This book is personal, moving and thrilling to listen to. Highly recommended!
