The Partly Cloudy Patriot is a very entertaining book that brings up some controversial topics (some political, some not). Sarah Vowell, the author, gives a great performance. What else can you expect from a regular contributor to NPR and "This American Life"? She knows how to create topics of conversation and throw them in your face and say "GO". I was a little disappointed the full cast of comedians listed in the Audiobook made mere cameo appearances. I suppose the Author always makes the best voice for their own book but I got a bit too excited seeing that all-star cast. I'm looking forward to picking up another of her books in the future.
