Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs

Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs is one of those books you can reread every year. The author is more known for his biographies, but this book is successful satire. It takes a unique look at the world behind the home shopping networks.

Burroughs does a great job with the character development. Though most, if not all, of the players are absurd caricatures of themselves. A book with this many characters can have problems if not done right, but Burroughs really carries it off – jumping from character to character at just the right moment to keep you wanting more.

The narration on this 7.5 hour book is done by Robin Miles. She has a great range in her voice and she has no problems with doing male or female voices. It is one of those performances that is so good you don’t even notice the narrator.
