Blanche’s Book Club: ‘Start Without Me.’

The following post contains affiliate links, which sends me a small percentage of any sales at no cost to you.

Audiobooks keep me entertained while keeping up with my reading goal. Plus, sometimes audiobooks have extra benefits that the visual version doesn’t have.

In my latest audio adventure, Gary Janetti is the author and reader, and his cadence always brings another layer of humor to the book.

I’m talking about “Start Without Me (I’ll Be There in a Minute)” — Janetti’s second book. I listened to his first book, “Do You Mind if I Cancel?” and laughed out loud nearly the entire time, so I opted for the audiobook the second time around.

This book of essays (yet another book of essays that I enjoyed; perhaps I’m changing my ways) covers Janetti’s childhood in New Jersey, as he tries to fit in with his family or the kids at school.

The result is hilarious, and I particularly enjoyed the story of Janetti getting a pass to skip the football lesson in gym class to spend afternoons with a nun/counselor who was caught up in Janetti’s fictional story about his parent’s divorce.

If you’re a fan of “Family Guy” or “The Prince” for which Janetti is a writer, you’ll love his books!
