AMERICAN ON PURPOSE The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

by | Read by Craig Ferguson

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Obviously, no one could do more justice to Ferguson's memoir than the comedian himself. With his Scottish accent and lively personality, the host of THE LATE LATE SHOW provides an amusing collection of anecdotes highlighting his ascendance to mainstream American entertainment and his quest for U.S. citizenship. Fans looking for another slice of Ferguson will thoroughly enjoy all he has to share. Overall, the book is entertaining but doesn't seem to have more relevance than that. However, the audio production shines as delivered by Ferguson. His quirky personality comes through in spades, along with his comedic timing, character voices, and overwhelming energy.
