    1. Where the Hell Am I? could be described as a travelogue-sitcom, filled with one-liners. As a former TV script writer and producer, Levine is good at one-liners. Levine is also a sportswriter and a part-time professional baseball announcer. His travels take him all over the United States, mostly to cities that have professional baseball teams or colleges where Levine’s children attend (and then there is Hawaii). Along the way, we get a taste of Levine’s wit and humor and ability to see the od [...]

    2. Written by television comedy legend and baseball announcer, Ken Levine, "Where the Hell Am I?" is a collection of humorous "essays from the road" that Levine would send out to family and friends.My only minor quibble with this otherwise well-written and funny book is that it's too long and should have been split into two volumes. The travelogue format gets a little repetitive about halfway through the book and "Where the Hell Am I?" would've benefited greatly from leaving the reader wanting more [...]

    3. The problem with turning blogs into books is that more often than not it FEELS like a blog turned into a book. In blog form with the occasional update, I can see how this worked. In book form reading passage after passage, it felt redundant.  Humorous at times. A quick read. I'd like to invite the author to Detroit for a quick trip. Judging from the half-dozen shots he took at the city it's clear he's never visited. And if he has? Well, you did it wrong, buddy. Come seemyDetroit. 

    4. Amusing book. It collects about 10 years of travelogs that Ken (a former writer/ producer/ director of such shows as MASH, CHEERS, FRAISER, ALMOST PERFECT, and others) sent as emails to friends as he traveled around mostly the USA (there is a trip or two overseas) lots of funny observations written in more of a free form, bullet point format then a long narrative. Amusing at most times, laugh out funny on occasion , there are worse books you can spend you three bucks on.

    5. Levine is a Hollywood writer and MLB broadcaster. This is a travelogue of a sort, but I actually see this more as a glimpse at US cities at a particular moment in time. I especially enjoyed this with cities I'm familiar with. The changing face of Broadway in NYC over the last 14 years, as an example. While some of his were typical family with teen/college-age kids, including college trips, I enjoyed the pieces that were tied in with his MLB Broadcast career. A good, quick read.

    6. Was quite funny when it was a travelogue but totally alienating for non-US readers when it blabbed on about baseball. As revenge, I would like Ken to sit through a cricket testmatch. Hopefully one that ends in adraw.

    7. Read most of this book traveling through airports on way home from vacation. I was laughing so hard at parts of it, I think I woke up the guy next to me who was snoring!
