The material is treated with irreverent and controversial humor from a right political position and with all the paraphernalia this controversial personality has showed before in several of his public appearances.
Dangerous Audiobook by Milo Yiannopoulos has been surrounded by controversy from the very beginning. To start with the announcement of Simon & Schuster of printing his material, raise complaints of an amount of approximately 100 writers from that publishing firm. Even one of them, Roxane Gay, pulled her book from the company, arguing that she was interested in dealing with a publishing company opening a platform to Yiannopoulos.
The controversy ignites when the author says some remarks favoring pedophilia and the contract with the publisher was taken back. That didn´t stop the author to get his material published and decided to self-print the material as well as its audiobook version. Citing censorship and other issues, the material started to sell very well and reached the best seller position in sells in lists from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA today. It reached the number one spot on the list of nonfiction best seller from Publisher Weekly and the second spot on the New York Times nonfiction best seller list where it remained for a total of five weeks.
Narrated by the own author, the audiobook is full of controversial humor about several tropics including feminism, capitalism, Donald Trump, criticism on the left wing personalities and other issues in the political arena.
The opinions is divided as some people considered this a great piece of work, especially among fans and followers of Yiannopoulos; but there are voices against his work, like Jocelyn McClurg of USA Today, cataloguing it as a “very funny” and “boring” at the same time; or in the case of John Crace from The Guardian expresses that “Yiannopoulos came off as ‘desperate’ in his writing”
