America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t
This title by the ever popular Stephen Colbert has a lot of the similar antics and comedy that is found on his television show, The Colbert Report. However, something that he does in this audiobook, which is not found as often on his show, is impersonations. He does them really well, and often times it is easy to forget that it is him. The book offers a lot of humorous explanations about things that were going on in the country a few years ago. It gives overly exaggerated examples of people and what their viewpoints would be regarding those issues. Some of them are performed by Colbert, others are performed by guest readers. They are all pretty funny, theatrical, and what brought spark to the book for me.
Overall, I enjoyed listening to this audiobook, but I did feel like it was missing something at times. Perhaps he does better when he has the energy of the audience to feed off of? Nonetheless, it was still pretty humorous, and definitely worth listening to!
The audiobook America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t is available for checkout on the second floor of the library, in the Media Center.
