the end of the story was VERY surprising, without giving to much info, I really did not expect one of the main female characters to be who she was. who the heck would have thought of such an ending!
how glamorous the couples life was, beautiful children, great girlfriends,love of their faith then BOOM, the real story begins........
excitement, her voice made the story believable, til u get to the end, then BOOM!
THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!
this was a great book, as a mail carrier walking all day gets kinda boring, (right). the characters, had my lil mind constantly in a state of OMG. walking down the streets damn near talking to myself, rewinding my ipod to see if I heard her rite or did she say what I thought she said??? It took me 3 days to listen to since i only listen to my books when i'm working, makes the day shorter. I was pleased. kudo's to the author, and narrator.
I started not to purchase this book because of the title, but seeing Mr Gates narrated I took the chance, and found it be pretty entertaining, and I understood the tiltle a lil better. I'm still a bit confused about Kasan's mother (Monique) who was she to Koko? she was never mentioned in the beginning of this book, what was up with the gold chain and envelopes at the end .Maybe a continuation? regardless it was a good read, and worth the credit.
I was very surprised and excited, had me on pins/needles, just get the book it's a 12 days a slave coming to the 20th century
LIKED THE STORY LINE, MY CHURCHY AUNTIE WANTS TO START THIS IS THE BOOK FOR HER , IT'S CLEAN CUT STORY NOT A LOT OF DRAMA, MORE LAID BACK. MY CHART 1-10 DRUM ROLLLLL #8
FIRST, I WANNA GIVE THE NARRATERS KUDOS!!! U 4 WERE GREAT, AND MR,EZRA I TRY TO LOOK FOR BOOKS THAT U READ FROM YOU'RE THE MAN!!
OK THE BOOK IS A MUCH READ, SINCY IS A PIECE OF WORK. GET THE AUDIO, WORTH THE CREDIT
SORRY MS J, I DO LIKE YOUR BOOKS, BUT THIS ONE IS A LIL IN LEFT FIELD, TOOOO MANY CHARACTERS, I DONT THINK HESTER CAN EVEN KEEP UP WITH THEM ALL., I'M GONNA TRY TO FINISH, HOPEFUULY I'LL GET THE STORY LINE SOON. KINDA SLOW READ, MY CHART 1-10, I'LL GIVE IT A 6
LISTEN,THIS IS A 3 STORY BOOK, WHICH WASN'T MADE CLEAR, ANYWAY EACH STORY HAD SOME BAD, KICK ASS WOMEN, WORTH CREDIT
this book opens the door to some real life lessons, I know lots of black people who don't believe in depression and this is sad to say, but a lot of us are in a state of depression of some form or fashion and don't want to face the fact, til life gets to heavy to handle. We need to get with the program. Although the book was a bit on the young side for me, I think it could be a wake up call for a lot of younger women, I give this book an A
The author of this series should be writing movie scripts, she's that good of a writer, I work outdoors for a living, so audio books work better for me, I only listen to my books while working which makes for a shorter day, but I almost couldn't wait to get back to work to listen to the next chapter, OMG, what a great story. keep writing girl, and I'll keep buying.
they all made it as if you were right in the front row of a show, they were so real.
Betty Jean, and her sisters, cause I could use some old school, down to earth, without beating around the bush advice myself.
yes, this was an excellent book, I want to give Terry Mcmillan kudo's for her great imagination and skill in writing she is one of my favorite writers. BUT PLEASE LEAVE NARRATING TO THE PROFESSIONALS, (I'm sorry) but you should NEVER do this again, you are a writer, your voice is not???, I don't know how to put it without being rude, so let's just keep it as it is. Just keep writing, and I'll keep buying. Again GREAT BOOK.
just wasn't feeling the story, too drawn out for something that was obvious
love her as a narrator, story was whack
