    One thought on “My Life Among the Fairies Of Walnut Ridge”

    1. Nope, I just can't do it. This is one book where I should've paid attention to the low rating, because life's too short to waste time reading utter crap.

    2. I was gifted a copy of this novella via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That in no way compromises my view of this book. I requested the opportunity to review this book because I loved the magical feel of the cover. Unfortunately, the book did not hold my attention as well as the cover had. Unlike other reviewers, I stuck with this book to see what may develop. I overlooked the way the book was written, since it was supposed to be from the point of view of an uneducated, lay preacher [...]

    3. I feel like this story was a bit lost on me. I'm not hugely political so I found the political satire stuffed into a love story jarring. You have an uneducated preacher in Tennessee who discovers a Celtic fairy (with a somewhat southern accent from the grammar of he book) and once they've slept together the fairy -Maybelle, considers them married. She goes about fixing his house and fattening him up while they also stumble upon pot farmers and the NSA which prompts Maybelle to fly off to Washing [...]

    4. My Life Among the Fairies Of Walnut Ridge by Michael E Glasscock IIIThanks to NetGalley and the Publishers for this copy.Although I enjoyed this light and entertaining read I am still not quite sure what to make of it? I get a sense from the blurbs that I have missed some deeper meaning but can't for the life of me see where?Several times I was inclined to thinking it was a book for the Children's or Young Adult genrebut then there was the swearing and the "lovemaking" and etc.I just don't know. [...]

    5. This read received ZERO stars as I simply couldn't finish reading it. First of all, a 200+ year old Celtic fairy would not be named Maybelle. The hillbilly accented narrative was annoying, but I tried to push through it. (view spoiler)[I drew the line when it was mentioned that fairies conspired to pass the 19th Amendment as well as helped to pass the Civil Rights Act in 1964.(hide spoiler)] Seriously? I mean, come on! Perhaps, someone else might enjoy this attempt at political satire. However, [...]

    6. My Life Among the Fairies of Walnut Ridge was a free download from NetGalley and Greenleaf Book Group. Michael E. Glasscock III has written this odd little novella. Fortunately, it wasn't very long. Preacher Jack, a horribly stereotypical ignorant hillbilly, marries Maybelle, a beautiful fairy. The two newlyweds then take on drug crime and the National Security Agency. The author states in the end notes that he believes "the NSA is an illegal government agency that is a threat to national securi [...]

    7. The one thing I can say is that the patois was good and entertaining. Just when this book started to get a little bit of flow it ended. There just didn't seem to be much of a point. Waste of time.This review is in exchange for a free e-galley received from netgalley.

    8. I received this book on Netgalley. For my full review of this book, please visit my Blog. suzysnerdyword.wordpress/2
