That lines up with my experience so far. The reviews I saw weren't detailed in their comparisons but did reference the others for the comedy so I was hopeful. And the price (free at Amazon) made it worth trying. Oh well. It isn't bad, just not my thing, so it isn't like I feel cheated on days of reading.
