however, I found the narrative boring, it totally ruined the book for me. I found myself zoning out when I was listening to Jill's voice, she didn't have any character at all. The comedy is definitely there, it is the monotone that left me cold. Please, Jill, next time, leave it to a professional.
Great book, poor narration. As others have noted, the author's self-narration is monotone and often difficult to hear. Knowing and loving the hard copy book & others by this author, I was very surprised by her lackluster delivery.
The book, however, is absolutely wonderful, both touching and hilarious. Highly recommended in hard-copy book form
This is one of the best "reads" in the humor division I have heard. Jill's reading of her own work lends another dimension to the humor.
Well written in a conversational style that would make Shakespeare proud, Jill has captured the humor of everday happenings.
This is a gotta' have book.
i laughed so hard i cried. you don't have to be raised a southern belle to appreciate the humor and life lessons of these women. i actually purchased 3 copies of the book and gave them as gifts.
This is a good funny read. Uniformly witty. This is the better of the two Sweet Potatos. The other one (the recipe book and financial guide) is funny too but not as much as this one. If any Sweet Potato queen disagrees, then she is welcome to come tell me so, and I'm sure she will.
Very very funny. All women can relate to this book. Observations on relationships, beauty, sex, child rearing, fashion, etc. are right on the mark. It gets a little racey/crass in parts -- but in a funny (not dirty) sort of way. I will reccommend it to all my girlfriends.
