Laugh out loud funny

Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl is Susan McCorkindale's hilarious account of ditching the city for the sticks. It's chick lit at its laugh out loud funniest. Don't miss it.

I'd rather read the dictionary

I returned this book after finishing it. I finished it in hopes that the author would get far less annoying, learn to wear boots in the cow pasture, stop spending all of her husband's money on designer purses, stop whining about the lack of Starbucks, stop talking about her boys' peeing and nose-picking habits, and stop overusing the words "tome" and "hinterland." Alas. The memoir was supposed to be funny, but I didn't crack a smile until at least page 50. Her voice was annoying, her informal and overused "This is probably a good time to tell you." showed a serious lack of journalistic maturity, and her "thing" seemed to be little (unnecessary, long, annoying, rarely humorous) footnotes. She took great pride in never adjusting to farm life (at the end of the book they move to a lake and she's excited because there's a Starbucks in town.get over it already) and spending a ton of money. At one point she orders 135 bathing suits to try on in the comfort of her own home, shipping back the 132 she didn't keep. If you have to try on 135 bathing suits to find one or three that you want to keep, you're a) not supposed to be wearing one anyway, b) too stupid to be near water, or c) have no concept of money or reality. The woman behaved like a petulant, airhead 13-year-old for the entire book, during which time she advertises herself as unable to do anything (can't cook, can't discipline her kids, can't drive a truck, can't blow-dry her own hair straight) and proud of it. Whatever floats your boat, Suzie. I got my money back.
