Publisher's Summary

Helen wasn't just born the devious vixen of New Day Temple of Faith. There had to be something rooted deep within her to make her inflict and feed off other people's pain. Perhaps it was her own pain that she had suppressed for so many years - an unimaginable pain - that created an internal prison of which her mind was the only captive. But once the demons within her break free, those around her better beware, as Helen surely becomes the epitome of the saying, "Hurt people, hurt people". In I Ain't Me No More, Helen has no shame displaying that she hasn't been saved all her life. Will the divas of New Day Temple of Faith think Helen's worth saving? But more importantly, can God save Helen from not only her evil past; can He save her from herself?

    What did you love best about I Ain't Me No More?

    The delivery, I was not expecting this one to be delivered in the way it was. I was surprised by the end but so happy for the delivery, because Helen got on my NERVES


    What did you like best about this story?

    Helen's growth and revenge...(sorry but I did like it Dub)


    What about Diana Luke’s performance did you like?

    The reflection in her voice just at the right times.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    INDEED!


    Any additional comments?

    I finished this book 3/2014, however Its tough for me to review this one because sometimes we as reviewers give too much away and this listen was very emotional. I had to stop listening many times and get my emotions in check. so what I will say it this. Ms. Joy did the thing with this title. You can tell even though she had demons, she tried, but sins of the past sometimes meet us at the front door.

    Remember that person who just seemed hateful for no reason? Or the guy who would beat you for no reason, understanding Helen's story teaches the readers that HURT people HURT people, but discovering the truth about God's grace and mercy is something Helen will bump right into. But is Helen ready?

    "Not Really Diva"

    Helen has had a rough life and although well educated makes decisions that don't work out as expected. This is fairly typical of a teenager and young adult, but Helen's baggage tends to escalate the situations she finds herself in.

    I feel the story line is decent and E.N. Joy does a good job of showing us an angry young woman. Diana Luke is an excellent narrator, although after listening to Helen's story in her voice, to flip to a different voice at the end was confusing and unnecessary.

    Although it's clear from the synopsis of the book that this is a faith-based book, the story has wider appeal than that. And for about 95% of the story, the author does not beat the reader over the head with it. It is primarily used as a vehicle about a way a person can experience personal growth. However, the end ruins all it. Along with a change in narrative voice comes a change in style and focus. Did I consider it proselytizing? I think it was just shy of being so. Had the book been this way from the start, it would not have been so disappointing.

    To consider this a diva type series is a misnomer. While Helen is haughty, the primary definitions of diva are not what the book is about. To utilize the word diva as an indication of what the story is, and what the rest of the stories are apt to be, is misleading. So, if you're considering listening to this, be prepared for the approach and the ultimate ending. If that is not of any concern to you, then give it a go.

    An audio book has to have a good story and a very good narrator, this one had both.

    Would you try another book from E. N. Joy and/or Diana Luke?

    Probably not. The story was good, but the writing was not.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was perfect for the storyline.


    Did Diana Luke do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    "This was a pretty good book."
    What made the experience of listening to I Ain't Me No More the most enjoyable?

    It kept me listening wanting to know more about what Dub next move will be.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Helen flipped the script on Dub when he was making all those deadly threats to her and her family while he was in jail and she finally stood up to his crazy behind. With the help of her grandma and auntie.


    Have you listened to any of Diana Luke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes Diana Luke performances was good, and she is a great narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't have a extreme reaction but I did laugh and cry a little.
