  • Who Asked You?

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Terry McMillan
    • Narrated By Terry McMillan, Carole DeSanti, Phylicia Rashad, and others
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

    Where does Who Asked You? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to this book 3 times. Everytime the characters keep me in stitches. This book reminds me sooo much of many of my friends lives. Felica Rashad, and Terry McMillan, is hilarious and makes the character so life like. This book, has something for everyone, you cry, you laugh, you say some unchristen like things, and much more. It is well worth listening to. I'm soo glad I purhcased the audible instead of reading the book. But then, "Who Asked you" (laughing) Enjoy

    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that BJ (Betty Jean) got another chance at happiness for herself, despite all the challenges she faced. The fact that Omar finally got self confidence and became a man and told his mother he was gay, and I laughed so hard, I nearly got in trouble at work, but I'm glad she found out the way she did. Justice, for her being soo overprotective with her child, and thinking she was all that. Life knocks you down, but love and prayer together overcomes everything, when you activate faith not fear. And even though BJ was not into church, she definitely had faith.We all need it.

    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotions, emotions, that took my imagination there ini the story. I found myself looking through the window, of each of their lives.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Got cha, and who asked you anyway

    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should go out and purhcase it today. The rating is very close to beating my 5 star rating for 'Waiting to Exhale". Terry knocked this one out of the park. I hope a film, is on the horizon. It'll be well received.

  • I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Jennifer Hudson
    • Narrated By Shanelle Gabriel
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Soulful and sultry, Jennifer Hudson wowed the world with her powerful voice in American Idol's third season, and then took Hollywood by storm with a star turn in Dreamgirls that won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Full of stories from her American Idol days, her experience acting in Dreamgirls, and how her son inspired her to want to live healthfully, this book is a gift for her millions of fans and an inspiration for anyone struggling with weight issues.

    Michelle says: "An ad for weight watchers"
    "Motivational and Inspiring"
    Where does I Got This rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top of my motivational and inspriation audiobooks, and believe me I have a few that I listen to when I'm feeling down and uninspired.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jennifer of course. I did not realize the strength of her faith and tenacity. By some she may have seemed bull headed, but to me she was very determined and strong in her faith, she new God had a plan that would change her life and give her all the things she deserved. Also, her trainer when she joined Weight Watchers. You always need a positive force when you are embarking on a life change. Without this positive reinforcement she would have made it, but not as fast and not without backsliding. You go girl. You definitely had this.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    When asked on the Red Carpet about being a big girl. I'm probably not saying it correctly, but her response was on point. Not the way I would have handled it, but then that why she is Jennifer and I'm me.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How she dealt with the disappointments and the terrible loss of her family.

    Any additional comments?

    Look at her now. As she says, I Got This, and so can we.
