This is an inspiring story of 2 woman, each having their own adversities throughout their life come together with different views and different attitudes toward others and life. Enjoyable, light and easy to listen to.
Depends on the friend. I liked the book but it might not appeal to everyone.
Loved the literary references. Like the fact that the main character was writing her story on a bunch of spiral notebooks from K-mart.
On one hand the narration seemed a bit dry, but on the other hand it sort of had to be dry to truly capture the character.
I was surprised by the ending. She reminds us that we were warned, but I had forgotten. While there was a lot of sadness and bitterness to slog through, the main character learns about herself and about those around her, and that's a good thing.
This author appears to have a distain for men and anyone from the south. Her imitation of southern accents is demeaning to southerners. She has a selfish disregard for others I was frequently disgusted with her degrading portrail of others. I did finish the book but would not strongly recommend it to others.
