Celia uses such descriptive wording that you are able to paint the pictures in your head that she is describing. I could not put this down, and have not stopped laughing!

This had me laughing out loud. It was funny, irreverant and a quick read. I will be looking for more by this author.

20 pages, and I didn't find humor in any ofthe author's musings. I am someone quite easily amused, so I found that a bit disconcerting.

Some sort of diary? Complain, complain, complain.. that's what the author was doing. I don't think this is even a real book ! Don't waste your time on some 20 pages of bitterness !

This only three stars because it was free. It would have been 2 otherwise. I did laugh in spite of my better nature, which kept it above a 1. The first essay was too rambling, even "for a Southerner" and quickly turned raunch for effect. A little would have been funny, but it wasn't a little. The 2nd essay I could have really gotten on board with, considering a few snarky conversations at the dinner table with my own Southern relatives but she took being snarky past the legal limit. The third I just considered jealous whining while trying to sound funny self deprecating. It didn't work.
