Publisher's Summary

A Brief History of Cockroaches and Rats is a brief but hilarious look at the history of those crawling, scuttling pests that everyone loves to hate.
Cockroaches date back to the time of the dinosaurs and they have evolved over the years to be able to survive without air for more than forty-five minutes! Rats, unlike cockroaches who like toenails and eyelashes, like to eat their own poo.
If you liked those facts, then you’ll love this disgusting guide, which leads us through zombie rats, edible cockroaches, plus loads more in this handy adult audiobook for those of us who are still a kid at heart.
A Brief History of... is a series of comedic historical audiobooks, created by Steve Campen and based on all that is weird and wonderful. Also in this series: A Brief History of The Lavatory.

I have always been amazed by rats and insects and the more I learn the more amazed I am. I believe I had heard most of this before, but it was cool to hear it again. Roaches are almost indestructible. If you are into gross stuff, then this is for you.

My only complaint was occasionally they would go to Professor So and So and he would speak in a heavy fake accent. They did this to add variety, but I could rarely tell what he was saying. This makes up only a small portion of the narration. This is also very much adult.

mindless fun

For a couple bucks--a bunch of fun trivia told in a fun, trivial way. For me, totally worth it. For a parent driving a carpool of kids to a baseball game, maybe not the best idea. Well actually, if you want your kids to develop truck driver/sailor mouth before you arrive, it's a perfect listen.
