it was ok
bookshelves: books-lite
Read in January, 2008

This is a mean-spirited book that (quite accurately) details the strange ways of rich Southerners. As a misplaced Yank living in the South, you would have thought that I would appreciate this book, but I did not. The only thing I really liked was that that the book was organized around a fictional newspaper column called "Chatter" which is based on my favorite section of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution called "The Vent." To add insult to injury, I made the mistake of getting the worst audio recording ever made, in which the white Georgia characters all had Tennessee hill country accents, the black Georgia characters sounded like white people from the Andy Griffith Show, and the guy from Kansas City sounded like a backwoods hillbilly from West Virginia. And if the accents weren't bad enough, the narrator--Cynthia Darlow--repeatedly mispronounced kudzu, muscadine, and pecan. Ack!
