These are stories for any age but my 84 year old mother can't turn the page fast enough. When we listen ti Stewart reading them live on the CBC radio we laugh out loud and people around give us a smile but when we are reading the book(s) and have to set it down to wipe the laughter tears away, people want to see the cover of what we are reading. As soon as a book arrives it is read and passed to the next family member. If you are not sure about Vinyl Café stories, try them live on the radio 1st. I can tell you that I promise you and your family will love it

I think of Stuart McLean as the Canadian Garrison Keillor, and his show "The Vinyl Cafe," as their answer to "A Prairie Home Companion." This series is excellent for anyone with a mental age over six years.

Got my first Vinyl Cafe book in Canada and let it on the plane flying home. I guess one or two books on the same subject is enough, which is how this book left me. When I read through listings there were a raft of books and it struck me they were just a rehash. Nah more.

I've read many of Stuart McLean's books, and listen to his show on NPR. I LOVE everything about them. There are surprising twists in his stories that catch my funny bone off-guard.

The stories unfold so subtily that the reader accepts the absurd situations as the normal outcome. This Canadian author is a real find. May not be funny to everyone. Know you own sense of humor!

i'm giving this book only 4 stars because i can't give it 4 3/4 stars, and though it isn't "OH MY GOD READ THIS" material, it is a great solid book, worth your time, with nothing i can say negetive about it. i would reccommend it to anyone who enjoys good stories told well. i saw this book in the airport and bought it. i know nothing of the vinyl cafe show (i do now, after reading on the internet about it) so it is all new to me.

the writing is flawless. quick, to the point, not pretentious, humorous. the stories are interesting and the perfect lenght. they don't drag on and they are not too brief.

i like the way the book is divided, four main chapters, one for each member of the family, and in each chapter four or so stories about that person.

again, the writing is direct and interesting, it flows. it is entertaining for anyone, regardless of your interests of sense of humor. a very good book.

When I first began to read Stuart McLean's Vinyl Cafe series a number of years ago, I was struck at the comfort of his writing style. Part of that comes from his training as an on-air story teller. He has a Sunday morning radio show on CBC where he tells his stories to a live audience in small venues as he travells around Canada. That experience with instant audience reaction has trained him in his writing style.

His stories remind me of a freshly turned garden. They smell natural, the people are of the earth. The stories are simple, but when planted, grow on you, like a flower, into something beautiful. Don't rush through the book. This is one best read one story at a time, with time in between to reflect on similar experiences you may have had during your lifetime.
