Okay, I'm not a regular reviewer. But this book had me all over the place. So much fun, sadness and enlightenment. The Characters are realistic and engaging (kinda reminded me of my always-in-the-drama family). Found myself going through a range of emotions, laughing, crying or shaking my head and loving every moment. Thanks to my daughter for gifting me this wonderful book. When I realized I was nearing the end, I had to slow down and pace myself because I did not want this book to end. I hope this book is made into a movie. Would make a great chick flix. If you liked The Help then you will love this, if you never read the help, you will still love this. This book is full of emotion after emotion.
Betty Jean, she was really the rock of the family and I loved her values and strengths. I also like Nurse Kim, even thought I didn't care for her extra activities with Mister, she did have a kind heart.
The voices of each character, even thought some of them sounded the same. They each had their own inflection and I got to know each of them by the sound of their voice.
I mostly smiled a lot
Loved the story line and the narration.
Story line started out good and interesting (first half). Second half, I started losing interest and had to back track to understand certain situations. I mean she just got DUMB! Nothing she did made since anymore. For instance, she was always making money but never had money, and I could not discern when and where she spent money, unless getting her revenge was costly. Too long for this story.
Stuck to the rise-to-fame and girl-gets-boy plot.
bad lowcountry drawl
too many to mention.
Could not finish this one, and I usually do no matter how bad.
A better main character. I mean this woman was just plain stupid. did everything wrong
all the voices sounded the same
all of them
Pointless. The mystery was drowned out by the stupidity of Mackenzie.
It was a coming of age story that is without a good bite.
Jenna Lamia was true to the character of Tessa Lee (the girl), but other characters, was a bit off.
This book might be okay for some but I just couldn't get into it.
Nobody I know
Narrator's voice sounded like he was reading a podcast
Not a single one
Even though it was only 5 hours, I could not even bring myself to listen that long. Gave up after 1 1/2 hours. The storyline did not hold my attention and the narrator was just horrible. I picked this one based on reviews and was mislead. Might work for some but not me. I think it was about demons but not sure. Like I said this sounded like a podcast actually I've heard better podcast.
A better story line without all the running around doing nothing but stupid things.
It was like a bad gumbo soup. A lot of stuff thrown in the pot with too many fillers and not enough meat and none of the right seasonings. I kept thinking maybe he took all the stories he wrote or tried to write a long time ago but never published and put them all in one book and came up with this garbage. I mean it started out okay, but then got redundant and boring. Save your credit or money and skip this or get it from the library.
Most of them
The words filled me up and took me away. Beautiful well written story. I really enjoyed the book and the narration, but the singing was a bit too much for me. Don't worry it's just me, I'm sure others will enjoy it. Since this is my first review, take that has an indication of how much I liked the book.
I loved this book, I didn't want it to end. I also listened to American Gods, so I now I want to read everything Neil Gaiman. Excellent writer.
