Verdict: Although grueling at certain points, many parts will have the reader laughing and wondering how any person could be as horny and strange as the protagonist. An "in between" novel, to be taken as a light read amidst two challenging books.
Although Judah Lee Davis is no Dickens, Shakespeare or Fitzgerald, I doubt that any of those men could annotate the life of a nymphomaniac Southerner trying to find a man.
“She Tells All” really does tell, as the life of Madison, a young Alabama native becomes the harrowing story of a sexy, boozy and unnerving women. Each chapter talks about a different love interest, the many ‘romeos’ that have come and gone. I use that term lightly however, as most of these men are dangerous and abusive, slowly ripping at Maddie’s life with cocaine addictions, well endowed privates and horrible teeth.
“She Tells All” is a story that begins as a fun, light and easy read however it slowly escalates into a strangely written soap opera. Nothing goes right for sad Maddie and the end has such a religious twist that I had to read it over twice to make sure I had understood it correctly. I would suggest the first 3/4 of the book to a fan of tabloids and Gossip Girl, however I did think the ending was a ‘deus ex machina,’ a cop out to finish the story quickly.
