    2. This book is an enjoyable, quick, and funny read, while also managing to articulate what it is to be human, and to deliver some poignant advice via the persona of Myrtle T Cribb Sheri Reynolds was one of my creative writing professors in my MFA, and it is lovely to read this book and see all the ways that she does what she teaches, from the management of flashback, her development of voice, to the way she maintains the tension of the story.

    3. What a lovely, quirky, funny, true to life novel from one of my favorite authors When I was a teenager, working in Barnes and Noble, I used to check the computer every few days to see if Sheri had come out with a new novel This is the novel I ve been waiting for The voice of Myrtle will grab you from the start, and, mark my words, you won t be able to put this book down I loved every single character each was complex and sympathetic each had its own arc I found it particularly impressive that al [...]

    4. Another book for the VA Festival of the Book In this one, a 40 something married woman accidentally goes on a journey that leads to spiritual enlightenment with a homeless man from her hometown Half story, half made up devotional related to the main character s spiritual progress, I found this book to be both funny and touching Myrtle makes a series of mistakes that ends up leading her to a better place in her life, one where she s happier with herself and her surroundings The series of oddball [...]

    5. Sheri Reynolds writes a wonderfully Southern picaresque novel where Myrtle Cribb leaves her husband without warning on a journey into herself She s on her way to a doctor s appointment she doesn t want to keep She passes the doctor s office before nearly running off the road Hellcat, the local homeless man, crawled into her truck the night before He wakes up and scares her.Myrtle wants to dump Hellcat someplace where he can walk back to the town they live in, but every time she gets close to doi [...]

    6. This book was quirky to boot It is cringe worthy, sad, humorous and disastrous for Myrtle anyway I don t think the book description does Myrtle s story justice The book was so much than I expected Yes, she is fed up with her husband and his narrow minded bs but it s not your usual sad wife runs off and gets a life sort of story The town drunk, Hellcat, plays a enormous role in this novel and I fell in love with him than Myrtle I actually giggled, not many novels make me giggle Sure, it goes wh [...]

    7. This seems a departure for Sheri Reynolds, lighthearted and funny than her other books, although just as quirky as the last few I loved it just as much as the others, maybe This is the story of Myrtle T Cribb s adventures when she impulsively leaves her narrow minded husband and departs on a trip, one on which she is unknowingly accompanied by the town drunk, Hellcat The end of each chapter contains a daily devotional or lessons to learn, from Myrtle Myrtle s down to earth wisdom and insights [...]

    8. Wasn t sure I was going to like it when the first meaty bits appearedt found it hard to put down eventually, I was won over by the characters as well as Myrtle s pithy advice on life I liked taking this journey with Myrtle and Hellcat By the time I closed the book, I felt I knew them personally, and really, what better praise for a book is there

    9. I loved this book It s an easy read packed funny, yet full of wisdom Myrtle Cribb is a delightful, honest character very much like Dellarobia in Flight Behavior by B Kingsolver.The book is written by Sheri Reynolds who teaches at ODU One of her books The Rapture of Canaan was an Oprah hook.

    10. A book I know I will read again Wisdom and advice to make me live, think and feel better Not to mention characters to prove that we are all imperfect in our own perfect way and change does not always guarantee happiness but you won t know unless you take that journey.

    11. I recommend this book It is an easy read, funny, and full of little snippets about how to live life well I was assigned to read this in a grad class I took this semester, and everyone in the class loved this book.

    12. Sheri has an excellent humor in this book and the spiritual wisdom intertwined is superb It is a must read

    13. Sheri Reynolds books are always good, but this one was not my favorite because I couldn t relate to Myrtle.

    14. insightful comments If you decide to get drunk at all, expect that whatever emotions you re trying to gulp down, they ll come surging back up along with all that beer.

    15. The story is quirky, touching, and thought provoking I enjoyed the Meaty Tidbits at the end of each chapter Myrtle s wisdom made pause, think, and smile and laugh.
