LDS meets Laugh-In

Be prepared to LYAO. Think you've got problems? Listen to this one! Having a down week? Listen to this one! Don't want strangers to hear you choking on suppressed laughter? DON'T listen to this one! The publisher's summary will give you some clues, but you have simply GOT to hear this for yourself. The writer does an excellent job, or the audio performers wouldn't be able to enjoy themselves so much. And the performances ADD to the general hilarity!
Wholehearted thanks for introducing this book to me!

Yet Another Fun Ride

How can each tale get better and better. After hearing Jitters and Yikes, I didn't think Adele could continue to amuse, but she not only did so, she has mastered the craft of entertainment.

From someone who is not a huge fan of audio books, I have to admit I am in love with every single one of Adele Parks books and have listened to each many times. Her characters are unique, amusing, and I have to force myself to turn off the CD player and go to work. You'll enjoy Gadzooks to the end.

"It’s a laugh riot"

This multi-voiced audio book is brimming over with a wide variety of unforgettable, irreverent characters. They run the gambit from caustic to sympathetic, clueless to insightful. Adele Park has an irresistible voice, she creates an outrageous and entertaining glimpse into a madcap world of medical marijuana dispensaries, Celestial Send-Offs, wacky underground musicians and radio shock jocks. It’s a laugh riot with entertaining unanticipated twists don’t miss it.

Interesting Subject , Very Heavy on Humor

I have heard Adele Park books before in the past and they were funny and the cast doing them is wonderful always very funny stuff . This new book I thought might not be that lighthearted given the subject matter, however seen through the author's eyes and the incredible cast I found myself laughing at things that in past I might have looked at differently . If your looking for a fun informative laugh your rear end off book then your in luck because here it is !!! Give it a go you'll be glad you did .
