  "The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love." by atodd (see profile) 08/16/09

The book had its humorous moments and did make the observation that you only live once so have some fun.

That aside, I felt it used "shock language" for lack of a better vocabulary way too much.

I also felt that the author did not really mean for the reader to take it seriously and it was written "tongue in cheek" but it could have been done in a less offensive manner.

 
  "Insulting to Southern Women" by Dorie (see profile) 06/23/10

Although funny at times, this book is too stereotypical about women from the South. The message - you've only got one life, so live it big and live it fun - is good in principle, but unrealistic in real life.

This was a fun, easy read. Great for the summer.

 
  "The sweet potato queens aren't so sweet!" by ocreader (see profile) 03/18/11

Very silly but fun at first. I laughed out loud a few times! Quickly got to the point, though, where we thought "OK, we get it. That's enough." Some members found the SPQ's attitude offensive.

 
  "Why?" by bookingmarauders (see profile) 09/22/13

Our book club read this book falling under literary fiction. Though the book described the characters the general read was pointless. All of our members complained they were looking for a "point" to the story. Overall our members would not recommend this book to book clubs.
