Audiobook Review: BJ Novak’s One More Thing : Stories & Other Stories

onemorethingWhat a treat it was to listen to BJ Novak’s debut collection of short stories, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.   Novak who is better known as the marvelous actor/comedy writer and producer of the show, The Office, has written over 60 short stories in his aptly named debut.  Some of the stories  are only snippets, but all the stories  are smart and witty as only the clever mind of Novak can produce.  Some of the short stories are: The Rematch- the tortoise and the hare race again; The Comedy Central Roast of Nelson Mandela,” (the title says it all) and Sophia, a longer tale, about  a story of sex robot who is rejected by her owner. The best thing about listening to the book as opposed to reading it are the guest  audio appearances by Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling Emma Thompson, Julianne Moore, Carey Mulligan,  Jenna Fischer, Jason Schwartzman, Lena Dunham, and Katy Perry.  If you are looking for something  smart, sublime and slightly irreverent  to entertain you, look no further than One More Thing.  Here is the the book trailer for an extra chuckle.
