How May We Hate You: Notes from the Concierge Desk

A Rapid Review

How May We Hate You by Anna Drezen and Todd Dakotah Briscoe

WeHateYouPublisher: Random House Audio | May 2016
Format: Audio Download | 3 hours | Rating: 4 stars
Audio Listening Level: Easy | Humor

Find out what really goes on in the world of hospitality with this hilarious book full of funny and absurd stories, anecdotes told in dialogue, factoids, and hoax pop quizzes by two veteran concierges who paid their way while working at a combined 50 hotels in and around Times Square.

How May We Hate You grew out of a very successful Tumbler (with the same name) written by two young comedians that took jobs in the hospitality business to support themselves. If you like your humor served with some snark and a little nastiness on the side, then you’ll find this quite entertaining and at times laugh-out-loud funny.

The book is filled with stories and commentary on the crazy things that people do and say. At only three hours long, it’s short enough to not wear out its welcome with repetition or excessive snark, and was long enough to give me a humorous reading break.

Audio production
The authors performed the narration themselves often using a conversational dialog or questions and answers. They did a great job that only added to the entertainment value of the book. It was an easy listen and one I would recommend to new audio listeners or those wanting to try the format. It is also a good choice for the car, especially if you make a lot of short trips as there is no plot to forget and the stories are all short.

    I’ve not come across this title before, but it sounds like something I’d enjoy… darker humour can be quite be cathartic. 😉
