Book Review: Naked

One thing I'm going to try to do better at this year is remembering to do book reviews. So here is the first one of the year. I honestly just closed the book and decided to go right into the book review so I wouldn't forget.

Naked by David Sedaris is definitely an interesting one. It's actually a memoir...a very colorful one to say the least. It is a combination of what I would call short stories and to be honest that would be the only negative part. I like things to come full circle and to all go together in chronological order, but this one just didn't do that.
It did however, keep me very entertained. It would make the perfect book for someone to read that maybe doesn't have a lot of time to get fully involved. You can read a chapter, set it down, and come back whenever you feel and pick up where you left off.
David Sedaris's writing is like that crazy Uncle that always tells the wildest stories. If you enjoy listening to those then you will like reading these. I don't know if I'll be running out to buy his other books right away, but I definitely see myself reading them one day.
Click on over to amazon and read the first sentence. It will give you the idea of his humor that continues non stop throughout this book.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


  1. Title alone is interesting :-) I'll check it out.

  2. Sounds good - I've been looking for a new book. I'm trying to stay away from Augusten Burroughs but I love reading about his crazy life. Ever read any of his books?

  3. Danielle - I read Running with Scisssors which I loved, but I haven't read any of the others. They are on my "should read" list! What was your favorite?
