Not funny, just old and tired. I love her shows shes witty and smart and in the now. This book might as well be telling mother in law jokes. Sad and embarrassing. I didn't even finish the book. I was really looking forward to it as well. Wasted my money don't waste yours.
Loved the story. Wish I could have got the full version though. The condensced version did not do it justice.
All over the workd women are not doing house work, not picking up the kids form school beacuse they're hiding reading this book with their legs crossed. I'm no prude but I didn't like the S and M content and couldn'tget past the violence to women fantasy or not. If your fantasy is this sort of thing go for it you will love it.
Streotypical American rubbish. Why would humans facing the end be at war with each other? look what happens all over disasters bring out the best in people. Just another paranoid dissapointing end of the world book.
Should be recommended for teenage boys.
The narrator was terrible. Would have been fine if he had just narrated but the voices especially those of the women: making them all pathetic and whiney.
No I would have seen it a 100 times already.
Great idea, good beginning unfortunately high-jacked by cannibalism and mayhem and other ridiculousness.
It 's hard to say. I would imagine they would be much the same.
No. Pretty desperate and sad. Like watching a train wreck. disturbing.
The language is embarrassingly flowery. So many clichés and trite descriptions. Yet despite this the story is fantastic. So glad I perservered despite the terrible writing style. This true story of a family growing up in the projects: It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion. How can the brothers survive? and if they do survive will they ever get out of that place? Or are they doomed to be like everyone else?
How could this happen in America and who's responsible?
Loved the voices, the accents, the story, the plot and best of all the characters. Can't think of the last time I read a book of fiction that I enjoyed as much as this. Beautifully crafted and flawless. I was Transported back in time. I was there in the Avalenes kitchen hearing her telling me the story.
The fantastic expressive voices make this book the best. felt they were the real people telling me their stories.
I laughed and cried and couldn't sop talking in a southern accent at the end.
