How to Make a Librarian Cringe

It only took me about six minutes to realize that I didn't care for this book. I generally like random facts books but not this. There is no order or organization to the facts. The information is all over the place. One fact is about a historical figure and the next is about jellybeans. There is no rhyme or reason to the information. The topics do not flow smoothly. It is disorienting. If I hear a fact I like, and forget to hit the bookmark button, there is no way to find that fact again. It is chaotic.

The narration style is unappealing. While the narrators sound pleasant and cheerful enough, there is no storytelling in the delivery. They are simply reading from a list, as a Stepford wife might read from a grocery list. The delivery is shallow. They could be a spokesperson in a commercial selling Vitameatavegamin or behind a fast food counter politely listing the options for dipping sauce. Granted, there isn't much of any storytelling to do. The production team has attempted to make the avalanche of information more appealing by playing an undercurrent of upbeat music in the background but it doesn't help make the torrent of facts more palatable. I recommend passing on this series and instead seeking out an organized fun facts book that wouldn't make a librarian cry tears of appalled anguish.

Entertaining!

This is a great title to play in your car when being all by yourself stuck in traffic or on a long and boring drive. The topics are very varied, and some facts are unbelievable amazing, others seriously shocking, and others will make you laugh out loud.
