"Mary Monroe is a remarkable talent." (Chicago Sun-Times)
good read but for this to be the second book in a series there was no reason to take almost 10 chapters going over what was in the first book. made it dry until it actually started. hope book three does not do the same
How this author had the nerve to spend the first SEVENTEEN chapters, rehashing the entire story from the first book, is a wonder. Any reader would know that the second book is supposed to be a contuation of the first;so why bother with the refresher? The main character, supposedly has become older, wiser and more self-confident. This was not the case. She's still giving the impression that she loves/forgives the old fool that abused her for most of her childhood. And, she continues to fall for weak-minded men, although she professes to have changed for the better. I like the fact that she finally became comfortable with her body. The moral of this story is that telling the truth would have saved everyone a lot of heartache. I also was disappointed with the reader, who is nowhere as good as the first narrator. At one point, she even called, RHODA, RHONDA.
WOW!!! I guess I was slow getting to this series but had heard that it was good. and, boy is it good. the performance is good too. you must listen to or read this series. I could not contain myself listening to some parts. my mouth was wide open and my eyes were wide in surprise on other passages. Don't snooze on this series.
Yes! I've already read the book, twice. I really love this book series :)
Scary Mary. You never know what's going to come out of her mouth!
Different voice, and a range of emotions. Plus she's MUCH better than the original narrator.
.........and never will
The overuse of the word "sniff/sniffed". It was said so many times, it became annoying. "Rhoda sniffed, and wiped her nose. Pee-wee looked down and sniffed. I sniffed before answering Jerome." See? Just unnecessary.
love the story. At first didn't like going over first book, but I guess it was Annette just rehashing her life.
Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
Worth the chip. Enjoying the story. Fun easy listening to while at work.
