    One thought on “SeinLanguage”

    1. 3.5 starsI love Jerry Seinfeld's comedy, and of course I loved 'Seinfeld' the show. I know there are some people out there who have no chemistry with the show's humor, but I'm one of those it fits perfectly. I went into this book wondering if it was a musing on life or a mini bio, but found it was none of this. It's 'SeinLanguage' - pieces of Seinfeld's comedy, written on page rather than acted on stage.The humor is good, it works, he writes well - but it'd be better to sit and watch him perform [...]

    2. Let me preface this review by saying that I think Jerry Seinfeld is hilarious. I have watched Seinfeld episodes by the gallon and never seem to tire of them. And I always watch the comedy segment at the end, because he is so clever and everyone seems to be having such a good time.However, something about his humor style translates very poorly to a book. I don't know what it is. But I read the entire thing, front to back, and counted one quiet chuckle and two smirks. Seinfeld acknowledges this sh [...]

    3. This is simply a collection of several bits from Jerry Seinfeld's comic notebook. Most fans of the TV show Seinfeld or of Seinfeld's stand up act will recognize these bits. That doesn't make them any less funny. This is one of the only books I have ever laughed at while reading it. In my mind, I could hear Jerry's voice saying these bits and it was like my own personal Jerry Seinfeld stand up act.

    4. For me, this book was an ‘inbetweener’. It helped lighten the load between Hawking’s A Brief History Of Time and an anthology of existentialist thought titled Existentialism. And lighten the load it did. I read just a couple pages each time I came to it, and put it down with a more cheerful and ‘breathable’ outlook.Everyone knows Seinfeld’s humor (if you don’t, I don’t want to know you anymore…simple as that…just leave). He cracks jokes about everyday things that we take for [...]

    5. I loved Seinfeld's show so much, I love his sense of humor, the way it's sassy and offensive and hilarious, and while I appreciated his funny bits in the show, I don't think it worked as well in this book.I think it would've been better if this book was a collection of his essays or something like that, because these quick shots, even if they were grouped together because they addressed the same topic, seemed chaotic. OR I think this is one of those that would've worked PERFECTLY as an audiobook [...]

    6. There's a reason why it's called 'stand-up comedy' - because when you sit down and try to read it, it's not as funny as when you hear it.(BTW, I'm a huge fan of Seinfeld and Jerry himself so my review's just 'OK' not because I don't get his sense of humour. I do but I'm not buying it wrapped in a book form.)

    7. It's hard to describe this one as a book. You know those few minutes at the beginning and at the end of the Seinfeld Sitcom shows, when Jerry gives some Stand Up Comedy sketches. This book is just a collection of those sketches. People who like the show - like me - may find it nice to read those sketches, and keep the book on their shelves and treat it as a some kind of written video tape where they can play the sketches back in their minds whenever they want to watch them again.

    8. Jerry Seinfeld needs no introduction. He is arguably the best stand up comedian of our times and his show 'Seinfeld', that ran for 10 seasons and has since seen many re-runs on networks all over the world, a cult classic. So, when I ordered this book my expectations were really high because I absolutely adore Jerry. However, when I got the book I was a little disappointed because I was expecting this to be Jerry's autobiography or something similar but 'Sein Language' is simply a collection of j [...]

    9. The book “Seinlanguage” is an autobiography about Jerry Seinfeld and his everyday life, and thoughts. He covers relationships, transportation, and life as a kid. The thing that I liked most about the book was that most of the jokes made a lot of sense. I read the whole book in his voice. I then imagined him talking to Elaine and George inside of his apartment.Seinfeld puts some good life lessons in his book but adds a little humor to it. I like reading autobiographies more than normal books. [...]

    10. There's no doubt that as a stand-up comedian, Jerry Seinfeld is hilarious. His material is fantastic, and his television show is one of the best of all time. This book is meant to capture his stand-up in writing in the form of what is essentially a collection of short jokes. Because of this, the book is a very fast read and is easy to pick back up on after being set down. I love Seinfeld. However, without his signature delivery style, his material (however hilarious it may be) just doesn't feel [...]

    11. I understand that this book was a big hit in 1995, when the show was still airing. But in 2013, I find it a little too dull.I watched the entire Seinfeld sitcom and I mostly liked it. I hated the end though, and I disliked how Jerry would always go, "and what's the deal with cars anyway? Right? I mean".Seinfeld has a unique style, except that you grow tired of it at some point. A sitcom and several comedy gigs were enough; a book compiling the material that was already used and re-used over so m [...]

    12. So, yeah. My reading tastes are varied. I just finished reading a book about astrophysics and then went right into reading this collection of Jerry Seinfeld anecdotes. It only took me two hours to read the whole book, but it was time well spent.First of all, I ♥ Jerry Seinfeld. He never fails to make me laugh. There is no one on this planet who, for me, can make the mundane more hilarious than he can.This book is basically a collection of the stand-up excerpts that used to appear in his sitcom [...]

    13. The book “Seinlanguage” is an autobiography about Jerry Seinfeld and his everyday life, and thoughts. This book is divided into different sections. Each section has it’s own topic. He covers relationships, transportation, life as a kid, money, and more. The book was basically a big comedy act. After a joke a new paragraph starts. The thing that I liked most about the book was that most of the jokes I could relate to, and they made a lot of sense. I like Jerry Seinfeld’s sense of humor. [...]

    14. I loved the show! And I love this book! Hilarious funny.I read some passages in my "American Accent Training"-exam at uni, and it worked. The teacher (comes from New York) loves Jerry and my reading, and I passed.Here are three passages from the book:The fact of life is that people will try and take your possessions. People are going to steal from you. Everybody has their own little personal security things. Things that they think will foil the crooks. You go to the beach, go into the water, put [...]

    15. Gak ada bosen2nya baca buku ini. I am silly, like him. In the book, Jerry describes few situation that happened to me also. Hilarious !!Banyak keresahan2 Jerry yang gak pernah terpikirkan sebelumnya, tapi Jerry ngemas itu dengan situasi komedi. Kalo bener-bener kejadian di cerita ini hampir sama dengan kehidupan kita sehari-hari, coba deh baca bikin kamu ngetawain diri sendiri… I think, he is quite feminine… “ The tuxedo is a wedding safety device. Because they know that men are undependab [...]

    16. "SeinLanguage" was great to read, much of the book is from Seinfeld’s stand-up comedy. The book covers many everyday topics including tensions on first dates and transportation. It flows well and gives you the visualization that you area watching his stand-up act.Jerry Seinfeld was the only main character in this book. Other people were mentioned including Jerry’s parents and his close friends, no names were mentioned.Most of the comedy takes place in New York as it is referenced throughout [...]

    17. If you're a fan of Jerry Seinfeld's unique style of observational humor, enjoy his stand-up, his show, or are just in the mood for something light-hearted, go ahead and pick this up. SeinLanguage is an easy read, but the voice of Seinfeld is clear and present in every word; reading it is like watching him on stage, pacing back and forth, doing his thing, only this time it's all in your head.From dating, to personal maintenance, to attempting to find a spot in a New York parking lot, the book's s [...]

    18. This was more of the sitcom Seinfeld in book form, but less funny. By itself, I don't think it is 4 star material, although I can't get enough of Jerry on that TV sitcom, I've not found him seriously funny anywhere else. It was a mix of Larry David's bite and Jerry Seinfeld's mainstream humor that made it such a hit. And Larry without Jerry is a tad sour sounding, or at least a different genre of humor, like organic chocolate without sugar. In fact, all fans of the show realize what a tremendous [...]

    19. ¿Han escuchado el disco 'I'm Telling You for the Last Time'?, ¿Si?, ¿No?, no importa, en teoría, puede que nadie lea esto.Si eres fan de Seinfeld (la serie o el comediante), tienes que leer esto, no tiene narrativa, pero básicamente es un stand up escrito, con cosas que se ven en la serie, y que se escuchan en el disco.Los chistes ahí estan, solo es de leerlo con el ritmo necesario.Hay muy buenas observaciones de la vida, la muerte, la homofobia, y el consumismo.Me gustó un chingo, porque [...]

    20. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Unless you have watched enough Seinfeld lately to properly duplicate Jerry's comedic timing as you read the book aloud. The common element of all of Jerry's jokes is that they are painfully unfunnyuntil you have Jerry telling them. So do yourself a favor. Binge on a few DVDs of Seinfeld and then read the book outloud in Jerry's voice. Then it will earn two more stars.

    21. I remember laughing out loud while I was reading this book, _SeinLanguage_ by Jerry Seinfeld. I recently gave it away to our library's fundraiser and I'm sorry I did. So now I'm going to borrow it from the library so that I can read it again. It's a short, skinny little book. So it won't take me long.

    22. Interesting book. When I picked it up I thought it was going to be more of an autobiography of himself with some funny perspectives on life, but it was actually just his stand up comedy. Some of it was really funny, some was okay. Overall it was a quick read and entertaining.

    23. An absolutely hilarious collection of Seinfeld's thoughts on everything. Honestly, it's like reading stand-up, especially if you slow down to read it with his voice and timing. It's amazing how he finds the absurdity in everyday life.

    24. Funny funny stuff. It's even funnier if you and your brother read it out loud to each other while your ditching church. Not that we did that for several years. There is significant overlap with his standup material but that's to be expected.

    25. I have added another book to my currently-reading list. But this one I think I might finish soonest. An easy read, hilarious at times, and definitely a light read. Just what I need for the moment.

    26. Very funny and easy read- I think I finished it in a day. His humor in the book mimics his stand up routine and television showwhich is why it's so good.

    27. A collection of the wit and wisdom of TV funnyman Jerry Seinfeld. Nothing really offensive, just the usual gentle "airplane peanuts" humor. Close readers will notice bits that became plots for the much-lauded television 1990s NBC series. Even closer readers will note ideas that later cropped up in the novels of Chuck Palahniuk, such as the travel-sizeness of things during travel and the anachronisms that sneak into Colonial America theme park vignettes. Of note about this copy, borrowed from the [...]

    28. On my block, a lot of people walk their dogs and I always see them walking along with their little poop bags. This, to me, is the lowest activity in human life. Following a dog with a little scooper. Waiting for him to go so you can walk down the street with it in your bag. If aliens are watching this through telescopes, they're going to think the dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them's making a poop, the other one's carrying it for him, who would you assume [...]

    29. This book is a 3 hour ecstasy, like a person after getting high. This guy observes the same life and the people/things around him in a very different light. A pencil looks like a cigarette, also a roller skate looks like a roller coaster. This same trip is the cause of reading this absurd eccentric book where Jerry somehow manages to point out absurdities in almost everything which makes sense to us. Also he does it at a time when life and its luxuries were supposed to be the big american dream( [...]
