    1. Few things make me LOL like Garrison Keillor. This audio book was one short radio broadcast after another filled with delightful stories of oddballs and lovable characters from Lake Wobegon. A nice alterative to regular radio.

    2. Even though I'm from the Midwest, I've always thought of Garrison Keillor as more of my parents' sort of humorist. But Mr. Keillor was coming to town, and I thought I might listen to some of his stories since I couldn't go to his show.You've got to love the people of the Midwest, with all their quirks and kindness. I love how Mr. Keillor finds humor in the simple things - the old truck doesn't look quite as nice next to the new boat :) Some of the stories were dragged out a bit, but mostly that [...]

    3. This is a recording of the Prairie Home Companion basically. It is a collection of excerpted News From Lake Wobegon pieces complete with laughing audience noises. I love the Prairie Home Companion and have a special fondness for Lake Wobegon pieces. I download them weekly on the iTunes podcast section, but I never knew that they had been packaged as books. It's delightful, though devoted Prairie Home Companion listeners will recognize what they're listening to as a radio rerun. I love it all the [...]

    4. Four hours on four CDs. These are excerpts from Keillor's live shows, the portions where he tells stories from Lake Wobegon, his hometown, "where all the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and the children are above average." He has an extraordinarily mellifluous voice, the anecdotes are sometimes touching and usually amusing, and all in all it was a very pleasant way to pass the drive to and from work for a couple of weeks.

    5. Some of GK's best. The Minnesota Lutherans sound suspiciously like the good-hearted small town people who raised me. This book was very enjoyable and entertaining. I listened to it on CD, so I heard it in GK's voice, which of course is the only way to "read" about Lake Wobegon adventures.

    6. This is a great collection of stories from "Prairie Home Companion." Garrison Keillor is a superb storyteller. He is truly one of the great voices of America's heartland. If you enjoyed this, I would also recommend checking out Tom Bodett's "End of the Road."

    7. Generally, I like Garrison Keillor, but more and more his stories all sound alike. I'm not as much of a fan as I used to be.

    8. Garrison Keillor's stories are so funny to listen to. Having spent time in the Dakota's (close to Minnisota) I really enjoy his winter stories.

    9. I listened to the audio. Cozy, homespun type tales.ntle sense of humorI loved the wedding story the best.ere were many laugh out loud moments!!
