this book was not all i had built it up to be in my head. i remember the thrilling moment when i realized tom bodett had lived in alaska--he answered a question on wait wait don't tell me about lance mackey by singing a line from an alaska-famous song by the illustrious hobo jim: "i did, i did, i did the iditarod trail!"but i digress. i had long been looking forward to this book which promised to provide "the view from the end of the road"--namely, homer, AK. the cover has a wonderful illustrati [...]
50 States and At Least 50 Authors 2018 Reading Challenge. ALASKA.Tom Bodett is from Sturgis, Michigan but has lived much of his adult life in Homer, Alaska which is on the Kenai Peninsula. This book is not so much about Alaska as it is about his sense of humor and his speech patterns. If you want to know more about Alaska, you will need to check other books. Tom is perhaps best known as the voice of the Motel 6 commercial "We'll leave the light on for you." He also appears frequently on the radi [...]
A. nonfiction, Alaska, humor, Mom's stash, keep
I remember liking this book but it's been so long - I really should re-read it before reviewing it.
The first in Mr. Bodett's publications, giving the reader glimpses of life in Homer Alaska, the true end of the road.
Ok from the reading the author did not think he was funny. But he was! Lol, in a dry sense of the word he was very funny and a lot of it had me cracking up, especially the missing sock theory, lmbo, it’s a good theory. I too really want to know why no one is actively trying to figure out why socks disappear in washing machines and dryers. I’m also all for knowing the things going on in a person’s mind, anything to keep them from delving into mine and this was great for that because there w [...]
This was a well written compilation of essays about rural smalltown life. I found it amusing and often wise.
The only thing better than reading Tom Bodett's stories is listening to them. They are warm, funny stories with a lot of heart. I thoroughly enjoyed them the first time roundd again.
See my review of The End of the Road for my thoughts on Bodett and his world.More stories about the wonderful people who people the town of The End of the Road, Alaska.
Fun short stories perfect just a little bit of reading right before bed. Or next to a pool.
Probably a re-read, but I don't remember it. A one-year-old visitor pulled it off the shelf, and seemed captivated. A good recommendation. Easy reading, but with some depth.
A good natured and quick read about life (and marriage) in Alaska. And yes, he'll leave the light on.
had to have something to read on the flight home from Anchorage and this seemed appropriate - love Tom Bodett's humor and stories about his neighbors in Alaska
Very cute and somewhat witty. Easy to read. I read in one sitting.
Subtle humor just rocks.
A little repetitive, but generally quirky, off beat and quite humourous.
