QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY The Fab 5's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better and Living Better

by | Read by Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez

Contemporary Culture • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Listeners who have watched “Queer Eye’s” whirlwind makeovers on TV will recognize the familiar straight-shooting style of advice giving on everything from wardrobe to home decorating to how to become more wine savvy. The Fab 5 read their own sections, and while they’re obviously not professional narrators, they are comfortable enough and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. The audiobook itself has some cheeky touches: In the section on “manscaping”--dealing with unwanted body hair--the sound of a lawnmower plays in the background. There’s a brief glossary that defines essential terms like “tjuzs” (that final tweak of shirt sleeve or primp of hairstyle) and some funny, off-the-cuff interviews at the end. When the whole point is to become a better you, it’s hard not to listen. J.M.D. 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 04]
