Why listen to a foul-mouthed misanthrope for more than seven hours? Because he can be extremely funny, as well as insightful and whimsical. On the other hand, he can be disturbingly hostile, lacerating, or simply nasty. Carlin reads--performs, really--three books, skillfully doing voices, acting out parts, emoting where needed. It's essentially Carlin stand-up--observations on language, everyday life, and important issues. Musical cues indicate changes in topic or breaks in the routine. Those who enjoy Carlin's vitriolic disdain for humanity and four-letter language, or who can appreciate him anyway, will be entertained. Others should avoid him.
