Comedian Maeve Higgins narrates her audiobook with charm and enthusiasm that are amplified by her delightful Irish accent. Her performance is an excellent example of an author's narration lifting the listener's experience. At first, listeners will be happy to hop on her train. But after Higgins asserts that she's a funny storyteller numerous times, they may become skeptical. The material is more akin to journal entries or op-eds than humorous essays, and the disjointed topics range from getting high on edibles to horrendous human atrocities. Ultimately, reliving depressing political, environmental, and xenophobic events doesn't deliver the hilarity promised. M.M.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
