Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes, tackling everything people think they know about the South - the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful - in a laugh-out-loud funny and lively manifesto for the rise of a New South. Home to some of the best music, athletes, soldiers, whiskey, waffles, and weather the country has to offer, the South has also been bathing in backward bathroom bills and other bigoted legislation.

This is one that is best heard. The book is good, but the narration by all three writers - Trae, Drew,and Cory - give it so much more depth. This book/audible runs the gamut from laugh out loud funny to tear producing poignancy. This one is a keeper and will be listened to again. Love these boys!!

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

The narration disappointed. Darlow performed, Burr just reads aloud, and not well. Fun story, though.

Jessica and her friend, Dr. Seth Hazlitt, get the shock of their lives when they travel to a Florida retirement community for the funeral of their old friend, Portia Shelby, only to discover she has been murdered. Needless to say, America's most beloved sleuth soon finds herself with a Palm Beach potboiler on her hands. Who would want to kill her dear friend? One thing is certain: the beach umbrellas aren't the only shady things in the seemingly innocent community.

If you're on the road or just running errands, this is a fun whodunit to have along. Narration was very good and added to the enjoyment. it was easy to stop and take up again in my busy life and still keep up with the mystery.
