Mini Review: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris

squirrelseekschipmunkI scooped this up from a library $1/book sale, having no idea about the contents, but knowing I mildly enjoyed Sedaris and had an affinity for squirrels and chipmunks and woodland creatures. I thought this would be more like Sedaris’s other works instead of aged up woodland tales that were vulgar and not humorous. The only thing this collection of vile mini stories has going for it is that it was a very quick read and I finished it in only 4 bus rides.

The best story within the collection was The Grieving Owl, which was the very last in the collection. I’m not sure I would’ve even liked the story if it had been featured in a collection I actually enjoyed though.

I clearly don’t recommend reading this. I feel kind of sorry for whoever picks this up from my nearest Little Free Library under the same guise that compelled me to read the collection.
