Yes, I'm actually getting ready to start it over. The story line was great and it's funny as heck.
I liked the way the story flowed and how humor was interjected.
Sex, Lies, Videotapes and Laughter
The only parts that were not as good as the rest was when Loretta got on her soapbox about her experiences with relationships and stayed there a minute too long. Otherwise, this was an AWESOME read!
I would definitely recommend this book. Terri McMillan and her co narrators are awesome.
The voice tones and injections of the narrators are on point.
I didn't want to put it down. It was soooo FUNNY.
Yes, I like Mary's stories for the most part. Cary Hite's voice has grown on me.
I envisioned a better ending to the cliff hanger from the 1st book. I couldn't wait to read the next one. Boy did I get disappointed. These characters seemed watered-down.
Loretta should have remained sane. She was as crazy as Granville in this book. Madison got off too easy. She should have really gotten what was coming to her. I liked the unfolding story line of Madison's "sorry" dad. GRANVILLE IS STILL MY FAVORITE. HE IS CRAZY AS HE##. He's so stupid he's hilarious. He kept me laughing out loud.
I wouldn't have introduced the Mexican drug cartel in and made them more powerful than the Diamond family and their Cartel. It seems silly to name a book the Cartel, have it centered around 1 family, and not have that family emerge on top as more powerful, more wealthy, etc. Carter's character is very captivating and sexy, but to deem him a boss and have him pine throughout the book over a ruthless chick is ridiculous. And to avenge her death is even more ridiculous!!! Loved the transformation of Mecca's character.
The Cartel 1 was great.
monotone, monotone and monotone
Yes, request a refund.
Yes, it's a good follow-up to the 1st one
Would probably refer to a friend
Liked the continuation of the story line, but didn't care much for how the Murda Mamas came to be. I would have preferred the storyline to continue with the Cartel and the Diamond family.
Never read the printed version
I loved the power and strength of the Diamond family. Thought Mecca was a bit over the top, but overall a great listen. Also loved the introduction of Carter into the Diamond family and his story line until the woman that caused him to go soft came along.
A bit inconsistent at times to me, but I eventually got used to it. I chuckled to myself at times at his monotone expressions.
