This book was such a disappointment. I grew up in South Carolina, and he was spot on with most of his little quips. The problem is - he's just not funny. I could see where the author was trying to go with it, but it fell flat - really, badly, horribly flat. The content is hilarious, it's just presented terribly, so you aren't sure if you should laugh or run away. A real disappointment.
This book is an extremely quick read. I'm from Texas and grew up in Oklahoma, so I consider myself fairly Southern.
I have to say I didn't laugh once. Not even a smile. I was expecting something similar to Gayden Metcalfe's books on the South, but this was no where near that sort of funny.
The way the author presents this humor, it makes you raise an eyebrow and wonder why everybody seems so vapid and shallow - it wasn't presented in a funny way at all. The flow isn't cohesive and I just felt that this wasn't my cup of tea.
