    "My daughter read this book for her literature class and she said she really enjoyed it. She even bought a copy for her friend's birthday so that she can read it too. It's a very good book because the humor is so good and on point "

    "In Me Talk Pretty One Day, writer David Sedaris describes several events of his life, from childhood to the time she went to France as an expat. The narration is funny and fresh ."

    "This book has quite the quirky humor to it. I caught myself chuckling as I read it. If that does not tell you anything about the book. Read it yourself."

    "This is a fair solution to the topic. It is a very subjective topic to a very broad range of humorous books. You certainly would not be able to call this one the best, but there may be someone that does. It does have many good reviews so people do like it but again it would be hard to call it the best. "

    "I normally don’t expect side-splitting laughs throughout a biography but this book delivers that in spades. It might be one of the funniest books I have ever read. We can learn a lot about each other listening to stories and I can’t wait for another one of his books to come out. You will probably relate to a lot of the stories, and if not at least you’ll have a good laugh!"

    "Very interesting! Provides humerous insight and reads quickly. The author was able to blend his story with a novel format."

    "This is a good book about the trials and tribulations in learning a new language. The oops moments when you think you said the right thing with polish only to find out you've said something completely different. Hiding under the table in a restaurant would be a great place!"

    "David Sedaris is a comical author, whose works are both witty and charming! Me Talk Pretty One Day is another one of his great works. I would not say the best book, but definitely a favorite!"

    "Me Talk Pretty One Day is a decent book but not quite a romance book. It follows more of an individual's moving to Paris but isn't truly a romance. While some romance does occur it's not the focus of the book."

    "Me Talk Pretty One Day, written by David Sedaris, is on of the best books of essays. It is funny and insightful just like you'd expect from Sedaris. His stories will keep you reading and wanting more. If you have liked his past books, you'll love this one."
  • Keith Reyes

    "I do not think this book inspired the show "This American Life". They do not seem related at all. The books seems like it would be an okay read, but really does not fit the provided topic."

    "I have read and enjoyed this book several times. A great collection of short stories that are funny and touching. The author has a great knack of putting everyday mundane events into a completely unique and different perspective that warms your heart. A great read for long airplane travels. "

    "I felt like this book got off to a slow start. The author's childhood reminisces were not as entertaining to me as his description of living in France as an expat. The stories about his French lessons and his wanderings in Paris were hilarious. The second half is enjoyable enough to slog through the first half"

    "A recent transplant to Paris, humorist David Sedaris, bestselling author of "Naked", presents a collection of his strongest work yet, including the title story about his hilarious attempt to learn French. A number one national bestseller now in paperback."

    ""Me Talk Pretty One Day" by Davis Sedaris is a funny book about adapting to a new culture and learning a new language. It is very uplifting and quite an easy read. I would recommend this."

    "I was recommended to check this book out from a good friend of mine who told me this was a very funny story and that they hadn't laughed so hard at a book in a long time. I found a different experience, i made it about a third of the way through the audio book before I stopped listening and moved on, it felt like it was dragging on a bit too much and too slow. The funny moments were okay but it wasn't enough to keep me hooked."
  • Victoria Ruiz

    "I bought this book for David Sedaris to sign. Get this in conjunction with the audio book. There is nothing better than hearing him read these stories. We laugh our butts off listening to him. One time, we had to pull over because we were scared of getting into an accident. I would go into more detail, but it's better to listen or read for yourself. He's absolutely incredible."

    "Keeping a teen's attention on reading a book is quite the chore in today's world. Fortunately there is a book that might hold their focus for more than a mere five seconds. Me Talk Pretty is a funny book with several short stories good for just about any age group. Relate-able and amusing I think any teen looking for a good read will enjoy this book. "

    "Sedaris does it again! I have loved all of his previous books and this one was extra special because I'm in the process of learning French myself. You'll be charmed by his wit and humor."
