Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls Summary

A guy walks into a bar car and...

From here the story could take many turns. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved.

Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy.

With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why his work has been called "hilarious, elegant, and surprisingly moving" (Washington Post).

Not funny.15


Liberalism to the nth degree2 star

A funny man but his hatred of all things consevative including his place of birth (the US) is disturbing. I will not be purchasing his rants in the future.25

A real downer1 star

I have many of Sedaris' books, and can easily say this one is so depressing and unfunny, I won't finish reading it. It seems to be a list of everything bad that ever happened to him, totally devoid of his usual humorous aspect, and has added in a few depressingly unfunny things written by awful women he narrates as, as if to make matters even worse on purpose. Unless you're bursting with positivity and glee, avoid this downer of a book.15


David Sedaris never disappoints5 star

'Twas a good read as all his books tend to be. I laughed, thought, contemplated and annoyed people in coffee shops with my tittering. Can't wait for the next one!55


Different but the Same4 star

I found this collection of essays a bit different from his other collections. Some chapters had "stories" that were self contained short stories. This confused me at first but I let myself enjoy their own special place of weirdness within David's world. This collection took me awhile to read only because I wanted it to last. Very enjoyable.45


Fantastic5 star

David Sedaris is my new favorite author. His writing style is such that it's almost like he is telling you a story in person. You can hear his voice and feel the sting of his biting humor. I frequently laugh out loud, and many of the stories kept me giggling for days. Thoroughly entertaining.55


Fantastic...as usual5 star

Sedaris does it again!!!55

Sorry Sedaris1 star

A few pages' read made me buy this book, only to find the material pointless and depressing. Pass this one up, unless you really are pointless and depressed.15
