Sorted By Most Useful

This sort of book isn't always my cup of tea, but I must say I quite enjoyed the "Debs". Cathy Holton does a good job of creating characters that you care about and keeping the story flowing. The narration was done well, though not flawlessly. A different delivery could have made the humorous parts funnier, and there were some mispronunciations, but overall she did an adequate job.

Laughs like Only the South Can Provide
What was special about this book that sets it apart from all the other southern genre and chic lit is the unique and separate character of each of the three women. They were not just a blurry mirror - image of one another. IL liked their *criminal* designs on the material world without being victums of it. The best part is that the ending is not that everybody nuckles under and calls it *living happily ever after. Woops, did I ruin it for you
NAUH ! I JUST MADE IT BETTER

I wish I could return this.
What disappointed you about Revenge of the Kudzu Debutantes?
The actress reading the book seemed like she was rushed and in a hurry. The story was taking way to long to get started, and none of the characters were likable.
What could Cathy Holton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I don't know.

The story is good, the narrator is terrible!
What did you love best about Revenge of the Kudzu Debutantes?
A great story about the strength of southern women. I found myself often wishing I had the guts to do some of the things they did in this book. An enjoyable listen except for the narrator.
What did you like best about this story?
A book I could relate to.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marguerite Gavin?
Moira Driscoll. She narrated "Charming Grace" by Deborah Smith. The story took place in Dahlonega, GA, and her character voices were some of the best. She did a male character that was from Cajun country in Louisiana. I got so caught up in the book it was hard to remember that that the same woman was doing all the voices, male and female, in the book.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When one of the couples got back together after the adultery.
Any additional comments?
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this short series, "The Secret Lives of the Kudzu Debutantes"
