Told in Stella's own exuberant, dead-on, dead honest voice, How Stella Got Her Groove Back is full of Terry McMillan's signature humor, heart, and insight. More than a love story, it is ultimately a novel about how a woman saves her own life, and what she must risk to do it.

I read this book a while back and absolutely loved it because I felt like I was being taken away to an island paradise along with Stella, the main character. I was disappointed that this was an abridged version but decided to buy it to see if it was any good. It's okay but Terry (the author) speaks way too fast and abruptly--she sounds kind of mad in general, so I suggest listening to the sample first before buying this to see if you'll appreciate her voice, which seems to me unlike Stella's character. Good story though, which is why I give it a 3.
The movie was definitely better and much more juicy. Overall I liked the book. I would recommend reading it.
