Margaret Cho's audiobook is misfiled under comedy, possibly because there is no section for unabridged ranting and raving. Cho performs her own work, which should not be a problem considering that she's a comic and an actor. But it is. She sounds like a whiny high school girl, complaining about nothing and everything, blaming everyone else for her perceived shortcomings. No wait, she doesn't blame EVERYONE; she blames ancient white men . . . over and over and over. If she did it with some skill, or humor, it might not be bad. But she sounds really, really angry, and it's tiresome. Considering her success, it's hard to see where all the anger comes from. M.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
