4 audiobooks to make you laugh

Because we all need a laugh sometimes.

2. 'Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls,' by David Sedaris


(Read by David Sedaris, Hachette Audio, 6 CDs, 6 hours and 25 minutes)

This collection of David Sedaris’s writings runs the gamut from taxidermy to dentistry and the best of it will make you howl. Sedaris’s essays are often personal, though some of the funniest are simply observations about different cultures he made while traveling. On the downside, Sedaris can be quite crude and occasionally curses. Also, some of the pieces were recorded live, and the production quality is surprisingly poor. Sedaris knows how to deliver a joke and, especially when he is in the studio, sounds polished and confident. But music used as filler throughout drags on too long. Grade: B+
