Timing affects reading

First, no one reads Dave Barry better than Dave Barry. While the performance was okay, it's much better when he narrates his own books. That said, the book was funny, but had I read it closer to the time it was published there would have been many more laughs. Read is you have a good memory, but if you don't, find a more current Barry.

Typical Dave Barry and that's a good thing.

Would you listen to Boogers Are My Beat again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this audio book again. It is nice to be able to be amused by the short essays and not have to be concerned with a lengthy story line sometimes.

Any additional comments?

Dave Barry is always good for a laugh but the two serious essays regarding 9/11 are reminders that he can be a very fine, thoughtful, and inciteful author.
