User reviews about this book
Do not waste your money. Every stereotype is here, plus a few more this Southern boy did not know about. Every Southerner will laugh out loud!
I have read most of Paul's travel books. Did he flim flam then too?
This Yankee has no clue about the South!!!
Ok, I confused this author with another travel writer I have read in the past, Bill Bryson. The title was a "gotcha" since my family has lived in the Carolinas since the 1600s.
I could not finish it, the author has such cockamamie notions and seems more interested in portraying a stereotype of rednecks and poor downtrodden rural folk!!! I mean really, one visits Charleston, SC to visit a gun show? How about the Spoleto Festival?!
He unfairly portrays a small representation of the true Southern native and only has leftist views. And WHY do Yankees think it adds to a tale to include their take on the pronunciation of southern accents? Just like I cringe when I hear folks in movies or tv shows fake a southern accent, give it up!!! Never have heard a Southerner try to pass as a Yankee!
I gave up reading his uninteresting tale about a third of the way through this book, hated to waste my money but did not need to keep spoiling my day when I read it.
Y'all spend your money elsewhere.
