Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This book is not for the faint at heart. Do not read it if you do not have a sarcastic bone in your body or if you are easily offended. In other words, this book pretends to be racist and xenophobic. It is cleverly disguised as a story to children while in gestation, so it becomes obvious a satire. The narrorator, David Winograd, has a terrific expressive voice, so it helps with the satirical feeling of the story.
Has Baby's First Book of Socialist Propaganda turned you off from other books in this genre?
To be honest, yes. It's super hard to look past the xenophobia. As sarcastic as it is, one worries that there is a shred of truth in the passionate dialog.
Which character – as performed by David Winograd – was your favorite?
It was hard to focus on characters.

Any additional comments?
This one vacillates between a 3 and a 4 for me, but that was because I probably wasn't expecting the language or the blasphemous scenario (I get that the author didn't mean it that way, exactly).
The narrator was great, and the humor was great. I found myself pretty engaged (between cringes...) It was shorter than I thought it would be. Take out the loose treatment of God, and I probably would have given it 5 stars. If the above doesn't bother you, you'll likely love it!
