The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible

The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible - A.J. Jacobs I listened to this while on my evening walks at the local highschool track. I'm not sure that this is a good plan. See, every now and then, while listening, you'll burst out laughing, doubled over, with tears streaming down your cheeks, and your fellow walkers will worry.

This audio version is read by the author. Who else could read it? It's his story, only he can tell it. Besides, he knows where the punch lines are, and can deliver them so that you double over laughing!

He has an excellent delivery. I can't wait to discover what else he's written.
