What reading level is Calypso book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
Vin waited, on her knees. Weak, she told herself. Look weak. Make him leave you alone. Try to—"Soothing me will do no good," Zane said quietly, grabbing her by the front of her shirt, picking her up, then throwing her back down. Mist sprayed beneath her, puffing up in a splash as she slammed to the floor. Vin stifled her cry of pain.I have to stay quiet. If guards come, he'll kill them. If Elend comes. . .She had to stay quiet, quiet even as Zane kicked her in her wounded side. She grunted, eyes... watering."You could have saved me," Zane said, peering down at her. "I was willing to go with you. Now, what is left? Nothing. Nothing, but Straff's orders." He punctuated that sentence with a kick.Stay small, she told herself through the pain. He'll leave you alone eventually. . ..But it had been years since she'd had to bow before anyone. Her days of cringing before Camon and Reen were almost misty shadows, forgotten before the light offered by Elend and Kelsier. As Zane kicked again, Vin found herself growing angry.He brought his foot back, angling it toward her face, and Vin moved.
Guest 2 years agoI did not find this book overly funny. I learned a lot about Sedaris' odd family. There were amusing moments. Toward the end he descended into potty humour.
Guest 2 years agoI actually bought this book during quarantine, but did not start reading it until after reading an excerpt of one of Sedaris' pieces in my Creative Writing class. The only other memoir I have read is The Glass Castle, which always kept me engaged, yet something was missing from the narrative: humor. Dave Sedaris examines the dark aspects of himself as he dwells in the past in the wake of middle age with a sense of humor that allows the reader to sympathize with his experiences. He voices the fears and idiosyncrasies that you might think about, but have never said to anyone because you thought you were alone. His writing inches its way into your mind, acting like its own internal thoughts as he passively observes the mannerisms, traumas, and the coping mechanisms intertwined throughout his family dynamic. I love reading about other people's unfiltered life because sometimes it is hard to remember that you are not the only mind experiencing the opportunities and oppressions of this life. It allows you to see the world from a different uncensored perspective, get infested in another's life, and then cope with the knowledge and actions that the writer and said and done.
Guest 2 years agoSedaris has perfected the art of telling serious stories with humor. I love his audiobooks because he narrates his own stories, adding emotion and depth and meaning.
Notes on this particular book:
His story of the FitBit hit so close to home. How many of us jog in place or pace just to get the "activity bar" to clear or to make it to our allotted number of steps? He perfectly captures the obsession that takes over without calling it an obsession.
Guest 2 years agoIt's hard to know what to say about David Sedaris that hasn't already been said. He's a brilliant writer. He's one of the best storytellers around. And he makes me laugh out loud. This book of essays hits the mark on all three fronts. They are, as always, essays about his life--much of which seems to take place in an airplane. He has a keen eye for the foibles and quirks of humanity, especially if those humans happen to be related to him. But he also deals with darker themes: the suicide of his sister Tiffany, as well as his longing to be recognized and loved by his father. In my experience, all great humor springs from deep pain, so this is not surprising. There is real pain here, but plenty of laughs too. Kind of like life.
