I cared about the characters. There were developed wonderfully such that as the story unfolded, so did the characters' individual tales. They made you laugh, smile and feel for them. I was compelled to keep listening because I wanted to know more.
The way the unfolded and how we didn't get everything at once. The loved the friendship between the ladies and how it stood the test of time and trial. I love read (listening) about strong bonds between Black women. I also enjoy reading Black literature that is not based in superficial details (status symbols like descriptions of clothes, careers, shoes etc) and are timeless.
no, I usually don't read books more than once. There are too many out there to read.
Fried Green Tomatoes and Steel Magnolias. Same strong female charaters and lifelong friendships. They stand by each other through thick and thin.
Funny, Sad, Engaging....a must see!!
