Naked comes out as a very funny book, so funny that I shed tears of fun throughout the time that I read it. The title "Naked" is itself enticing, and reading the book offers no regrets for making the choice.The stories are excellently written with characters that are intuitively observed. The stories are laced with humorous lines and the flow is so smooth that it makes reading effortless.The plots are equally plot that is breath taking. Overall, the style reminds me of other works like The Usurper: and Other Stories, The House of the Dead (Classics), White Fang. I found the stories hilarious and witty. They are also pager turners.

Sedaris's witty and relentless observations make for an entertaining book that will keep readers laughing. I found the bathroom humor tiresome at times, but that pervades even some of the best books and movies today. Still, Sedaris stands above most writers of humor with his honesty and his keen, cruel sense of observation, especially in scenes like his excursion into nudism.
