BOOGERS ARE MY BEAT More Lies, But Some Actual Journalism from Dave Barry

by | Read by Dick Hill

Humor • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Dave Barry is funny, but Dick Hill's reading is overly enthusiastic. Hill reads clearly in a resonant voice, but often too loudly and with overdone expression. It isn't hard to miss a Dave Barry joke, so some of the humor wears thin as Hill rattles off the lines in a staccato fashion. Most of the humor is recursive, that is, returning to the same topics over and over again. While Barry's material may be difficult to imbue with a sense of surprise or tension, Hill's reading is too obvious.
