This book was slow in some parts, great in others... When you get to a juicy or rather good part it switches over to another character I didnt like that one bit..My favorite character was Cocoa..........I wanted a "bad boy" in the mix to spice things abit in that regard. In the end an average okay read. Nothing to go omg over.
Fort Worth, texas native and I love to READ!!!!
This was awesome, I wish there was a sequel. This was very easy listening........
This was a GREAT book -- I downloaded it to my IPOD so I could listen at my desk, while I was driving and everything else. I could barely put it down and when I did, I couldn't wait to pick it up again. It's been a long time since I've had a book hold my attention like this. Great work Carl Weber!
Carls earlier works wore always good page turners, however I would fell "left hanging" on initmate details that one gets with a Eric Jerome Dickey or Mary B Morrison. I must say he has landed on their playing field. The only reason I didnt give this a 5 is because I felt the ending lacked closer. I wont explain for obvios reasons.
Something on the Side was a great listen. However, the sexually explicit language was a bit much for my taste. Therefore, I'd place it beneath, but near the top of my audiobooks.
The story lines of each main character were all interesting; they all had some entertaining drama taking place.
The narrators bring their various voices that I may not have had imagined. They were great narrators and all had enjoyable voices.
I'd probably take out Coco to find out how she manages to only hook successful men. She may be able to give some good tips. Lol
Much of the story was quite sexually uninhibited and unrealistic. If a woman would have written the book, I think there would have been less sexual gratification, thus more realistic. On another note, I found Tammy's character to be the most annoying. She was just too extra; she was in much need of being humbled.
Good entertainment... thought the storylines were interesting, the storylines presented some twists and turns (a couple I could see coming!) but were entertained nevertheless... the narrators were good. I think they were some of the best currently narrating African American novels.... The stories were mostly about the breakup and makeups of couples while taking their sexual relationships into uncharted waters.
This is my second favorite audio of all times...
The characters are all people who I know and can relate with...
The depth of each person's character...especially Cocoa and Tammy
Drama in the Big Girls Book Club
I could listen to it once a year and be entertained
