    Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Mississippi's own Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilarious best seller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love. Fortunately for us, that was not the final chapter in the Queens' saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women.

    "poor recording quality"
    Overall

    I have heard Jill Conner Browne person and have purchased two other of her works from Audible so I am familiar with her speaking voice and style. The recording quality of this is very poor; it sounds as though the recording has been sped up a little making her voice sound very machine gun like rapid with a strange echo or reverb in the background as a result. Great book, funny stories, but the recording quality is very hard to listen to. I did not think the entire recording would be like this after listening to the sample so I purchased it anyway and feel as if I have wasted a credti.

  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't know what to expect, but I learned a lot from this book. I liked his narrative style, very smooth and even-easy to understand.
    The subject matter was fascinating to me and I was very glad I made this purchase. I will listen to it again as a refresher.

    Story

    In this savory and exuberant travelogue, New Orleans is experienced through the eyes, ears, and taste buds of Roy Blount, Jr. who writes, "The history around here is so thick you could pop it open with an oyster-knife, and oh, the aroma: fresh-ground coffee, yesterday's fish, spilt beer, sloshed Tabasco, hot pastry, patchouli oil...and hints of some fortuitous compound...mule plop and olive salad?"

    "bad narration"
    Overall

    I love Roy Blount, Jr and I think this would have been better if he had narrated his own work. His accent and delivery style add much to the story.
