This book is like a cross between South Park, the Daily Show, and George Orwell.

It's like 1984 only way funnier!

Eye-rolling, gave up halfway through

Would you try another book from J.M. Porup and/or J.M. Porup?

Nope.


Would you ever listen to anything by J.M. Porup again?

Nope.


What didn’t you like about J.M. Porup’s performance?

The t's were super crisp, so any word with a t was clipped and jarring. He was trying to act like a clueless wannabe naive idiot, but he just came across as an asshat.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I rolled my eyes at just about every line. I have two little kids so I hear about poop, pee, farts, butts, and the rest every single day. I don't care. But this book was just infantile. The constant references to "poo," "pee," and "wee wees" was just too much for me. I have better uses for my time than listening to something that sounds like my 6-year-old wrote it. I had high hopes for the book because I thought the concept was good, but the focus on poop in the middle of the book just made me give up.


Any additional comments?

Ugh. Just ugh.
