I liked the book because of some interesting facts in it, but I think, I would've enjoyed it more if the narrator was reading it with some more excitement. For me, every joke fell flat because of her reading and had to listen on twice the normal speed, so it wouldn't seem so slow.
I respect Deepak Chopra and his work, but the book have been much better with somebody else narrating it. The way he is reading the story is not enjoyable at all.
One of the reader's review says: "You know a book has become part of your soul when you start to hear its
characters' voices in your head (that or I'm officially going nuts)." Well, I couldn't have said it any better, that's exactly how I feel. This book is beautiful, gripping and won't let you go for a long time. It takes place in Jackson, Mississippi during
the Civil Rights Era, telling a story about 3 women, who make you laugh, cry and drop your jaws open mouthing the words "oh my god!" all the way through the end.
I am very disappointed in this book, maybe because I expected too much from it, but the way King writes is so vulgar (a football game compared to this one is like a knitting club) and boring, I can't even make myself finish it. (which is really bothering, since this hardly ever happens).
I always say to give every book a chance, all of them have something to say. Well, this one has too...it keeps saying: "It was a waste of time, it was a waste of money!"
