So. Funny.

Ali Davis keeps a straight face and a kind heart.

For anyone who's been in the retail trenches, or spent time in the sweat-scented aisles of an old fashioned video store, Ali Davis is your voice.

Ali has so much compassion for her customers, while still recognizing the shiftiness and downright unlikability of others. My favorite story is of Ali finding her moment of power, channeling her inner High School Principal and expelling a "jerker" from the porn basement—but things were not what they seemed.

Human nature is laid bare; the politics of singles, couples, and groups; and the "drift" from vanilla to kink. Ali records the faces that people present versus what they rent.

Sad has never been so hilarious

If you could sum up True Porn Clerk Stories in three words, what would they be?

I don't know. Why do I have to write a review based on your criteria? The book is a quick read (or listen as the case may be) and totally hilarious in an "oh my God do these people really exist?" kind of way.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ali. Why? Because she kicks ass and manages to be hilarious while asking deep social, psychological, and philosophical questions.

Have you listened to any of Ali Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is her first, but I hope it's not her last.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It's like Empire Records, but funnier, creepier, and...*ahem*....stickier.

Any additional comments?

This book will not disappoint. And if it does, then you have bad taste.

You might bust a gut laughing!

A truly insightful and hilarious peek behind the desk at your local video store and the regulars who visit it. The author actually made me think a lot more about my perceptions of porn and sex and our societal attitudes towards it. But what really made this book brilliant was how easy it was to read, the way it made me laugh out loud like a loon as I did the housework and the skillful way the writer adds depth to what most of us would think was a godawful job.

Not bad, easy fun listening

Nice short chapters, funny stories and good narrator. Would recommend for easy listening as you don't need to pay that much attention to follow the story.
