From acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author Mary Roach comes the complete collection of her "My Planet" articles published in Reader's Digest . She was a hit columnist in the magazine, and this audiobook features the articles she wrote in that time. Insightful and hilarious, Mary explores the ins and outs of the modern world: marriage, friends, family, food, technology, customer service, dental floss, and ants--she leaves no element of the American experience unchecked for its inherent paradoxes, pleasures, and foibles.

I expected to love My Planet - it is Mary Roach, after all - but couldn't tolerate the reader. I suspect if I had been reading these essays they would remind me of Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck, but I won't know for sure until I've cleansed by palette and tried reading later.

We listened to this #audiobook on our way to and from Vancouver last week for a little Christmas break getaway. My daughter and I laughed all the way there and back, mostly because the author's husband shares so many quirks with my darling, though she doesn't try to hide any of her own pitfalls. It was a perfect #roadtrip book.

The choice of Angela Dawes as the reader is unfortunate. She does not understand the voice. Her delivery is angry, hard and nuance-less, making Mary Roach's smart humor grating.
