      Story
      "Can I have a translated version?"

      No, her accent isn't that bad but her comedic timing is. While quite a bit of what Ms. Rivenbark says is quite funny, she gives no pause for you to assimilate and laugh before she's on to the next bit. A better narrator would have made this much more enjoyable but as it is, it takes less than 15 minutes before total frustration sets in and it gets turned off.

      "Funny enough"
      What did you like best about You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning? What did you like least?

      I laughed at her humor a lot. but the book was more of a humor column in a paper than a book.


      How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

      A plot?


      What about Celia Rivenbark’s performance did you like?

      It was her book, so she knew where to put emphasis. I like that.

      "How close is the next gas station???"
      Where does You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      It is one of those that I reload to listen to. This happens to be a rare quality with books for me. Once I have read/ listened to a book, it takes something magical for me to reread/ reload a book.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning?

      I enjoyed the "Perfect Attendance" story since I am a school teacher in a school that strongly promotes "perfect attendance." So it hit home. I also enjoyed the Christmas story. I laughed so hard during that one.


      Have you listened to any of Celia Rivenbark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      Yes, I just love the narration!


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      I enjoyed the "Perfect Attendance" story since I am a school teacher in a school that strongly promotes "perfect attendance." So it hit home. I also enjoyed the Christmas story. I laughed so hard during that one.


      Any additional comments?

      I listen to my audiobooks while driving in my car. I drive three hours to Memphis on a regular basis. I chose this book because I have read the print version of other books by her. I was laughing so hard, I was looking for the next gas station.

      "Slow down. You're makin my head hurt."
      What would have made You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning better?

      The narrator was painful to listen to. Don't know when she stopped to breathe.
      I have read a book by her before and thoroughly enjoyed her quirky humor. Hearing her fly through reading the story was not my cup of tea. Honestly made my head spin. Ruined the story and the humor for me.


      Would you ever listen to anything by Celia Rivenbark again?

      Nope, can't listen to that voice speed racing through a story again. Painful.


      Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Celia Rivenbark?

      Anyone with a slow, easy southern drawl would have been better. Really...anyone.

      One of the top Picks.

      She has a great way of telling her story. You feel like you were there.

      "Difficult to understand and not worth the effort"

      I was looking forward to listening to this book but was immediately put off by the narration. Read by the author, who in the first 5 minutes was carried away several times by the cleverness or humour of her writing that I could not share, because of the shrillness and accent and speed of her delivery. By 8 minutes in I was also annoyed with the content I could fathom and turned it off. I shall not try again.
