I really enjoyed the storyline and the building up to highlights (Alana (sp?) and the reasons she seeked to destroy Vanessa, etc.) The only issues that I had with this audiobook is the narration. The narrator seemed to breathe at the wrong times and break up sentences awkwardly. She also seemed to not really grasp the actual essesnce of a particular phrase or statement. I don't know if anyone was directing this at the time it was read, but it seems it could have used a director. Other than the narration, I truly enjoyed this book.
THIS BOOK WAS VERY FUN TO READ. I CAN'T BELIEVE I READ IT WHILE SOME OF THE SAME THINGS WERE GOING ON IN MY OWN LIFE. IT MADE ME TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT MYSELF AND LAUGH OUT LOUD. EXCELLENT READ.
Tell us about yourself! Married, avid reader and book reviewer.

I found Can I Get a Witness? a very interesting audible to listen too. I believe Ms. Billingsley did a wonderful job in bringing out how many of us need a higher power in our daily life. For sure this was
true for Vanessa and Thomsas. The sisters and aunt were interesting people in this story too. This audible was a bit long but good and it kept me interested until the end. I was glad the way the story ended. Truly forgiveness was very important.
This was my kinda book. Not too churchy (if you know what I mean) with a hint of humor, interesting characters and plot twists. Plus it didn't have all the vulgar language that seems to ruin good books. I live in Houston so it was nice hearing familiar street names and landmarks. I felt right at home -- almost as if I could run into any one of the sisters around town. As a fellow Univ. of Texas alumnae, ReShonda makes us proud!
