    The Prices are introduced by Viola, the family's outspoken matriarch: Her husband, Cecil, has shut the door behind him for the last time; and their four adult kids, scattered across the country, seem determined to send her to her grave, or at least to the hospital with worrying. Paris is divorced, mother to a nearly seventeen-year-old son and the one who always comes to everybody's rescue, although she doesn't have a clue as to how to save herself.

    What made the experience of listening to A Day Late and a Dollar Short the most enjoyable?

    I like the fact that they used different narrators for the male and female voices. It makes you connect more with the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Day Late and a Dollar Short?

    At the end when they were reading the letters that their mother left them. It was as if she knew that she was going to be leaving them soon and she needed to make sure she let them know how much she loved them and wanted them to have a better life after she was gone. Also the fact she was helping them remember that they are connected and joined as a family and they needed to up lift one another and get back to being sisters and brother joined together.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes you do want to listen to it all at one time. This story held my attention through out.

    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    What did you love best about 32 Candles?

    The honesty of the story. I loved how she totally expressed the good and the bad of her life


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 32 Candles?

    Toward the end when she finally realize that Veronica James and Tammy were just people and that she did not have to feel inferior to them any more. They are flawed just like poor people.


    What about Adenrele Ojo???s performance did you like?

    Her Southern accent was great..

    When best friends Becca Mercer and Turner McCloud go to a hypnotherapist, they expect to be cured of their smoking habit. Clearly the treatment hasn't worked, because they're both still smoking. Oh, and now they're having sex. Lots and lots of sex. And it's definitely changing things between them.

    What did you like best about Indecent Suggestion? What did you like least?

    I did like the twist of her being hypnotized and the fact it makes her show her feeling for him that she has always had. The thing I liked the least is how they beat around the bush about how much the truly cared for each other...

    Theresa Hopson is the successful owner of one of the hottest new stores in Durham, North Carolina: Miss Thang's Holy Ghost Corner and Church Women's Boutique. But success isn't enough without someone to share it with. Theresa needs a God-fearing, intelligent, hard-working, and loving man. Unfortunately, the pickings are slim. Reverend Parvell Sykes is greedy and conniving, and the only other single, successful man in town hasn't seen the inside of a church in years. But God works in mysterious ways.

    Would you try another book from Michele Andrea Bowen and/or Saidah Arrika Ekulona?

    I really like the narrator I have heard her on other novels and I like how she express the characters.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I like the battle between Lamont and Jethro for the housing bid. The romance between Theresa and Lamont could have been done better.


    Did Holy Ghost Corner inspire you to do anything?

    I did inspire me not to judge people on their outside appearance Ms. Babydoll's character was done very well.

    Where does Pleasure Seekers rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This book was okay it held my attention I have listen to this book 3 times it would be in on my top 30 of all the audio books I have in my collection.


    What aspect of Gabra Zackman???s performance would you have changed?

    The narrator was fine she did the best she could with the story. I do feel that it would have been better suited for an African American narrator so the terms and slang that was used in the story would sound more believeable.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good it held my attention through out. Sort of the Pretty Woman type love story, however it was a good twist that it was a mixed couple.

    Three best friends who've grown up together encounter some of the real tests of manhood. All's good for James and Cathy until a woman shows up with James' love child. Suave Brent thinks he's found happiness with a born-again churchgoer - until another leads him into temptation. And longtime friend Sonny is going to need help from James and Brent if he's to have any hope of salvaging his marriage.

    This was a wonderful story full of twist and turns and also the romance and struggles for the three friends was in tense. From a female stand point this has opened my eyes to alot of things about relationships.
