What From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels is about: Read along as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strifeand manurethan I ever could have expected.
The Three Reasons Review is a simple way to get your thoughts out there about a book. The reasons are as follows complete with fancy button:
1.) Reasons you chose this book
I've been reading Ree's blog for a number of years and even bought one of her cookbooks. I liked the person behind the blog and was interested in knowing more about her.
2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book
10 hours of Ree's voice was almost more than I could take. By about disc 6, I was contemplating throwing the whole audio box out the window, until I realized that I didn't own it and the library would charge me a huge fine!! If I had to hear her go on about her damn Anne Klein jeans or being a stuck-up city girl one more time I could have throttled her. So, I guess you can see that I really didn't care for the audio version of this book at all.....not one dang bit! Aw shucks! I hated hearing about her projectile vomiting when she was sick from flying. Did I need to know what color (chartreuse) her vomit was after she gave birth to her first child??? Did I need to know about the nurses cleaning up her nether regions??? Is she some type of livestock? By the way....who says nether regions???? Whatever!! Her voice is annoying, she is annoying, Marlboro man being referred to as Marlboro man if FREAKING annoying, being a city girl stuck out in the fields of no where is annoying, oh golly how will I survive without my designer brands was annoying.
3.) Reasons you are recommending this book
I'm not. Unless of course you adore Ree and can't get enough of her voice. Which by the way you would think that the author reading their own work would have some type of inflection and personality while reading their own words....wouldn't you? Well, she doesn't. What a horrible experience. I should have thrown it out the window!
P.S. I sat back and reviewed this thinking to myself that I was pretty harsh. I contemplated softening it up a bit, but then decided to just let it rip!
