Not only did I find this book hilarious, I also was impressed with it's acuracy. I spent 35 years trying to understand the local dialect. It's not so easyto understand why Worcester is pronounced "Woostah" or how words that end with an "r" sound like an "a" and words that have no "r" at the end sound as if they do. Not to mention words with "r's" in the middle such as park pronounced "pock". Great fun reading even if you haven't been there.
