I hadn't heard of this series before, and I picked it out on a whim, thought I'd try something new, and got a pleasnt surprie in reward for my curiousity.
The book is everything I love. It is funny, witty, and irreverent. It is a clever bon mots made to look like an amouche bouche.Richard really puts it all out there, this is like Caddyshack with dwarves. Dear plays his parts perfectly, and he has excellent comedic timing, too. He adds to the humor with every syllable. I would love to tell you more about the Pepperoni Prince or Farty, but I think sometimes, jokes just have to blow you away on their own, and if you have to explain it, then the humor vanishes like a fart in the wind.
A new favorite series of mine. Imma gonna keep the eye out for dem.

Warning: Adult humor, juvenile humor, adult language, and potty humor, but hey, this is not your kids tale of Snow White. I couldn’t help but chuckle throughout. Marc Richard delivered a great modernized version of the tale and David S. Dear’s performance was perfect.

Fun series to listen to, you never know where they are going to go next. Great narrator too. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
This book was great. a quick, funny take on classic fairytales. highly recommended. just the Sex Pistols before Johnny Rotten form PIL. the humor is base at times and that is just fine. the fact that it is a tale of Snow White and The seven Dwarfs and the first Dwarf we meet is farty dwarf should explainnit all.
I had never listened to any of Marc Richards "Alphabet Books" before, but I enjoyed my time with this short story that is based very, very loosely on Snow White. It may not be the type of humor for everyone, but I went in expecting it to be a little over the top and irreverent. It was both of those things. I anticipated that some of the antics were going to go too far as the story progressed. However, I thought Richards did a good job of not going over the line. It may be classified as somewhat sophomoric humor- but I thought it was funny- so who cares! The narrator's New York accent works well with the story.

I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author or narrator." This review is for the audio copy of D is for Dwarf: An Alphabet Book for Grown-Ups!: The Alphabet Books by Marc Richard and narrated by David S. Dear. This book did not hit my funny bone. With that said, I did end up listening to the whole thing… I can’t tell you why other than to hear the story out. If you like this kind of humor, which many people do, especially the younger generation, then this might just be your cup of tea. The narrators did a great job with the story. His tone, cadence and pace were appropriate for the story. He helped me visualize the story as he was reading it. Not a bad story but not great either (to me anyway). I liked the idea behind it and it was well written. Again, probable more suited to younger adults.

This was a short and oddball take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. For what it was, it was humorous and very entertaining. They are narrated well but definitely not for kids!
Marc Richard and David dear are a combination that will leave you laughing uncontrollably at stop lights chuckling to yourself in line as you listen and wishing there was more. The stories we know and Love reimagined for adults. This one is Snow White and the seven dwarfs in a new and hilarious romp. Enjoy it I know I did.
