Georgia Bottoms: A Novel | [Mark Childress]

Georgia Bottoms: A Novel

A best-selling author of books for adults and children, Mark Childress pens his most outrageous work yet with Georgia Bottoms. The titular heroine is the epitome of the church-going Southern belle, except for one teeny-tiny aspect of her life. Georgia’s family inheritance has long since evaporated, and to maintain her genteel lifestyle, Miss Bottoms has taken six affluent lovers—the fly in the ointment being that one is a married preacher who’s about to reveal their infidelity to the whole congregation.

    Story
    "Couldn't get past the narration"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Unfortunately, I didn't make it past the first chapter of the book due to the narration. I expect that the story was being read in a way to conjure up southern belles and a slower pace of southern society, but I found that it didn't capture my attention at all. The story line seems like it would be good, I just didn't have the patience to find out. This is the first audible book that I haven't finished, but you don't mind a slower, drawn out narration, you might enjoy listening to this.

    Story
    "*Yawn* a bit of a sleeper"

    Upon reading the summary, I thought this was going to be outstanding... I was disappointed! It has its "parts". Those that are cute and maybe even a bit chuckling. Overall... it runs slow, jumps between "stories" and just seems a bit tiring.

    I listened it out, however, would not be quick to recommend, unless you were really in for a light-footed non-nonsensical story.
