Review: Sleepwalk with Me (and other painfully true stories) By Mike Birbiglia

After reading scores and scores of Dystopian and Sci-Fi books over the last year I decided to change it up. Thus, Sleepwalk with Me by Mike Birbiglia. If anyone is a fan of the Radio Show on NPR called “This American Life” you are probably familiar with his comedy style or have heard a few of his stories. I for one, find him hilarious. I think his stand up is smart, quick witted, and enjoyable so I thought to myself  “Why not?”. I was not disappointed. This book may not be the best book that i have read lately but it was ultimately enjoyable.

The story follows Mike Birbiglia through his childhood growing up in New Jersey and follows the beginning of his career in stand up comedy. The book centers on his awkwardness both on stage and in real life.

The storys are well engrossing, well written, as well as funny. I read this book a few times on my lunch break at work and laughed a bit too loud and got a few strange looks from co-workers and i would highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a fast read.

Overall, 3.5 out of 5 Stars
