You Have To Fucking Eat

by Adam Mansbach,  Bryan Cranston (Narrator)
Audio EditionRead July 7, 2015

Original Release Date:  November 12, 2014

Length: 4 minutes

Official Description:

Emmy Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Malcom in the Middle) follows in the exasperated footsteps of Samuel L. Jackson, giving voice to the long-suffering father whose indifferent child will just not eat in this hilarious follow-up to Adam Mansbach’s international best seller, Go the F–k to Sleep.

Mansbach’s long-awaited sequel is about that other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal. Profane, loving, and deeply cathartic, You Have to F–king Eat breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving moms and dads (new, old, grand-, and expectant) a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem.

Anchored by a hilarious performance from Cranston, You Have to F–king Eat is the perfect blend of talented voice actor and subversive fun that expertly captures Mansbach’s trademark humor. Due to its explicit language, you probably shouldn’t play this one for your kids.

My Take:

I actually found “Go the Fuck to Sleep” much more entertaining than this one. Though I do have a picky eater who would love to only eat one food, forever, this one just felt like it was trying too hard. Yes, it’s funny, but it’s not one I would want to own, unlike the original. I also love Bryan Cranston, but…he just didn’t have the same magic as Sam Jackson…but who does? Overall, it’s a cute one time read, or listen, but it isn’t as magical as the first.

My Favorite Quote:

“You woke me and asked for some breakfast, so why the fuck won’t you eat?”
