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.
from 1-10 a 5.
Not Terry McMillan's narrating performance. Her voice was too rough and choppy, It threw off the flow of the reading.
It was great listening to how the ladies have grown and not grown after all these years. I guess turning 50 is no different from being in your forties. Men trouble, finances, and still trying to figure out life haunts these ladies. Terry sure knows how to make you connect with her characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book and wished that this could've been made into a movie. (Sorry that Ms. Whitney Houston has passed on.) very pleased with the author and actresses who lent their voices to this literary piece.
