this book was SO good! I was nervous at first about the title but when I started to listen to it I could literally began to picture each scene in my mind. very englightning and motivating
It was a good book for a long car ride since my Pandora wouldn't work. But SOMETHING was missing. Not sure if it was depth or the perfect voices for each character ...And 1 thing I never expect Terry McMillan to be is predictable but there were some parts that made me go, 'Hm', as well as chuckle. Truly a mixed bag for me, as it didn't quite hit the spot. Nevertheless glad I can check it off my list and I'll remain a fan of Ms. Terry.
I'm so pleased to have listened to this audible version of Getting to Happy. Oh, Oprah, and movie producers to love a good book. Can we say next?
It's like women of a certain age, they still have 'IT' by still have it and when they don't they get a little help from their friends. Drive ,sexuality , determination , forgiveness ,love and inner determination. Just keep on in the face of adversity. pick yourself up dust yourself off and be grateful. I like being able to relate and actually get caught up in the characters she has a way of getting me to laugh and get emotional about their lives that's always a good story to me. And to say the least it always keeps me wanting more! And kudos to the fine actresses that narrated and contrary to popular belief I love Terry McMillan's voice when she narrates :-)
4.5 rating. Really love McMillan. The chlidren seem a bit confused. The children had no boundaries; thats not realistic. Robin's plight was predictable and boring. Savannah's story was stupid. Her 50 year old behind threw away Issac over porn. His obsession could have been resolved. Bernie's and Gloria's stories carried the book. Good book club novel.
I liked the entire book. I would highly recommend it. Wonder if she'll continue with one more.? Think I'll look around to see what I can see.
