I loved listening to Phylicia Rashad narrating this book! I could absolutely picture her as Betty Jean. The story line was good also. One of my favorite Terry McMillan books.
Betty Jean was my favorite character.
I loved listening to Phylicia Rashad. She was very believable.
Must Read Books
Yes. I am sure the print would have been excellent; however, with this type of book, nothing better than a talented writer and excellent performers-- which are made for the character's part. Each of these performers were five star quality, and you could envision each unique character within each setting.
I had purchased the book; however, had to drive from West Palm Beach, FL to Amelia Island, FL (south to north) and from there to North Carolina---could not wait to start so purchased the audio for my road trip. I had to buy the audio, as could not wait--have read all Terry McMillan's books and when I listened to the audio sample - I knew this would be the ideal book to listen to on my iPod for the long trip.
It exceeded all my expectations and more. Turned out, it rained the entire two days of travel and I did not even mind, as I laughed out loud at all the funny characters and it made the time go by faster. I actually finished the entire book about an hour before I reached my destination. I could not even listen to another book, as wanted to just bask in the wonder of this incredible book and smile as I wanted to meet each one of these characters.
I loved all the many different characters! My favorite character was BJ, and of course the banter with her sisters and oh did I love Luther, Omar, and Quinten. It was hard to choose a favorite as each of them had a take away.
If you love humor, wit, family drama- this book is for you. Movie worthy and can only image the cast! Tyler Perry needs to be all over this on OWN. Would definitely listen to this again!
The real emotions, the humor, life stories with heart felt takeaway. Will make you cry and laugh. Shows how much impression adults make on children.
Loved them all but BJ, Omar, Luther, Vanessa and Quinten were my favorites.
Luther as he is smart and is an old soul with a heart of gold. I also would like Omar and Quinten as both of them would make me laugh all night! Hard to choose as all the women were sassy and witty.
One of the best books - Terry you outdid yourself! I see another movie based on this book!
As usual Terry McMillan delivers another story that is more than relatable to the everyday person. I grew up reading her lifelike stories, they are one of the reasons I decided to write myself. Great job!!!
This book reunited me with my favorite author, Terry McMillan. She really knows how to get into the heads and voices of her characters. Gosh now I'm so mad that I was so greedy about listening to the story it was so good and now I wish the story was even longer
This book was a great read, although it's not action pack. it was definitely a great read, full of positive influence, low drama and realistic view points. This book brought a realistic feel to the story.
I had a hard time starting the book, based on the narration. However, once I got past that issue, I found myself drawn in. The story touched me. I am so glad it ended on a positive note. I am now interested in hearing more of Terry McMillan's books.
