Reader's Thoughts

Ashlee Andersen

This is another really fun book to read, I would find myself laughing out loud. As well as the crazy characters in the book would remind me of people that I know, which made it even funnier, the reason I only gave it 4 stars is because it was a little slow in some spots.


I thought Robert Farrell Smith's first book (Baptists at our Barbecue) was funny and witty, but it went downhill from there. This book seemed too much of a re-hash of former stories, trying to repeat the same idea and humor. Not funny. It wasn't the worst I've read, but all his other books are just repetitive in idea, and just not interesting anymore.


Oh I laughed out loud through this whole book. Perma-grin! It is the most rediculous story with the craziest characters. But I can't help but laugh every time I think of this book. It is a great easy read that is worth your time.


This is the first book in a series of three. The entire series is laugh aloud funny, light-hearted, and cleverly written. A terrific read for Mormon kids and adults alike.


I stinking love this book. You get so attached to the characters. Robert Farrell Smith Is probaly my favorite LDS author!!! Everyone needs to read this at one point just for laughs


I really like the name Trust. He's a really good man to not only serve his entire mission in the backwoods town of Thelma's Way, but to fall in love with its wacky out of the ordinary people. It's a great missionary story.


Hilarious-at some points I was laughing on every page. Totally light reading material, but completely entertaining. I've not read too much LDS fiction in the past, but I have to say I enjoyed this series.


This is a book that I listened to on tape all growing up, and it's one of my favorites! The characters are so wacky but lovable and I have fond memories of hours spent listening to the fun stories


I read this when I was pregnant with my first and I could not wait to get home from work for my lunch break or after work because this book was so hilarious!I need to read it again because it's been too long!


This book made me laugh. Original story. Good characters. If light-hearted reading is what you are after this book will work for you.


I laughed and laughed at this one. What a feel-good read!!


This series (and this author) are hilarious. That's all I can say. I've read this series a couple of times and always end up laughing.


Cute humor. A little slow in spots but overall I enjoyed it as a good relaxing bedtime read.


I really enjoyed this book. Now I have to say that the plot is . . . well, it reads like a fisherman's tale--a fisherman who is practiced in the art of storytelling. In fact, sometimes I felt I was reading a verbal comic strip. While the plot has some pretty ridiculous events (intentionally so), the writing, and especially the similes and analogies, are so fresh and so funny, I promise you'll laugh out loud. You'll have to! And I fell in love with the unique, and quirky characters in Thelma's Way.

My dad read me this series when I was little. I've reread it since then and it cracks me up every time.
