Can't Finish It

I know there are probably many people out there who won't agree with me, but I found this book incredibly annoying and the plot line silly. The reader's Southern accent made my skin crawl (and being from Georgia, that takes alot), and I found the plot line about Miss Julia's marriage to be unrealistic - I felt like the character was completely from the 50's, but set in present day (and to me, not in an entertaining way). I've been trying for a month to listen to the whole thing and still have over half of the book to go. I seem to always find an excuse not to listen to this book/reader - I have a new CD that I like, or the dog needs attention, or the toilet needs cleaning...
Try it if you want to, but I would definitely recommend listening to the preview first to see if you can stand the bad Southern accents. I wouldn't recommend this book though.

Fun Story

As always, Miss Julia takes us for a fun tride twisting this way and that with all the great regular characters and quirkie plots. I can always count on Julia Springer and gang to keep me interested and smiling.
