Dave Barry is at his best when he's short and sweet, which is one reason to enjoy DAVE BARRY'S HISTORY OF THE MILLENNIUM (SO FAR). Patrick Frederick is the latest in a line of readers of Barry's work, and perhaps the closest to Barry's tone. Frederick lets the humor flow naturally. This is an irreverent, deliberately misinformed history of civilization, unless Peter Minuit really did purchase Manhattan for $64 plus $167,000 a month in maintenance fees. Barry is brutal in his assessment of the Bush administration(s), all of them. But he doesn't spare the Democrats either. This is a perfect dose of Barry's oddball humor, which is great in small doses, say a couple hundred years at a time. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
