Imus radio program come out on audio book

When I got this audiobook I was prepared to listen to Don Imus just read the book to me, but I was pleasanly suprised. Imus uses things that make the bits on his radio program great in the audiobook. If you are a fan of the I-man and you are looking for a good time and a quick way to kill 2 hours I suggest this audiobook. CAN I GET AN AMEN?!

One of the funniest, warped and delightfully offensive books

As a long-time listener of Mr. Imus, I was delighted to read his book, but I truly did not expect it to be great. However, Mr. Imus's eye for detail and style makes his characters come alive. They may be twisted and bizarre, but I felt as if I was right beside them. The dialog is razor sharp at times and the humor had me laughing so hard, I annoyed my neighbors! Mr. Imus's sense of humor is not for everyone and to some, he will be a bit too racy and offensive. For me, that was part of the charm of this book. I needed a wonderful, light read that left me sore from laughing.

If you don't think this book is funny, you must be dead!

This is Don Imus at his best! I had never laughed out loud while reading until I read this book. The characters and premise seem ridiculous at first, but you only need to watch one TV evangelist to know that Imus has captured the entire "industry" perfectly. I only hope this will not be Imus' only novel.

This was one of the funniest books I ever read!

I am a longtime fan of Imus, and I especially enjoy his type of humor. This book, which I just learned existed a couple of weeks ago, was truly a laugh a minute experience. Protagonist Billy Sol Hargus brings to mind another Billy Sol from Texas several years ago. His gig was to dupe others out of money also. But his escapades were not nearly as funny as the Reverend Dr. Billy Sol Hargus. This book will obviously offend the very sensitive religious left wing, but for the rest of the literary world, it brings nothing but laughter to the eyes of its readers. Everyone, (I think) would like to have a what was her name?- Stepmother Edna? Sure would save a lot of time wondering what life is all about. Aunt Stepmother Edna was a wonderful religious teacher for Billy Sol. He was a very lucky young man. Anyone with a warped sense of humor will revel in this excellently written book. It is a literary journey into a rich sense of humor that will tend to make many young men, and who knows, may be some y

Scathing satire at its best!!!

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of reading GOD'S OTHER SON. While it is guaranteed to offend a number of readers, even its detractors would have to admit that it is one of the funniest books ever written. After reading the first 20 or 30 pages, I knew that Imus couldn't keep up the pace. I was wrong. His humor never took a break, and I completed the book in two sessions. It is one of the very few books that actually made me laugh out loud until I had tears in my eyes. This is a must for anyone who has an appreciation for fine satire
