Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've always said that I enjoy comedy audiobooks that are read by their authors. Food: A Love Story was no different. The biggest downside was that my wife caught me laughing and listening to it without her and insisted that I slow it down and share it so I had to listen to the book at normal pace. Jim Gaffigan is his normal cleanly funny self and I enjoyed the book thoroughly. This book still featured some of his stand-up routines as chapters, but less so than his prior book Dad Is Fat, making much of it original. I also liked his nod to Cincinnati, Ohio cuisine with Skyline's chili on spaghetti because it works. I could go on more, but he tells the stories and jokes better. I'll simply say that my wife thoroughly agrees with him about "sea bugs" and that I can relate to him and his dad who loves steak, but isn't always the best at grilling it. For more than that, you'll just have to enjoy the book yourself.
