    Story
    "Wish I'd Enjoyed This More..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Didn't feel my time was well spent. After listening to and thoroughly enjoying the other books in the series, I was very excited to start this story. I found myself irritated by the characters, unable to root for any of them.


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

    It pains me to say that I was thrilled when it was over.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The characters often sounded too much alike...


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

    Not sure...


    Any additional comments?

    "The Upper Room" and "Mama Ruby" were really fantastic stories- this one just didn't grip me the way they did. But I will continue to read work by this talented author!

    Story
    "interesting premise, BUT SLOW AND BOREING."
    What would have made Lost Daughters better?

    the storyline should have moved along a lot faster.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the first 3hours of the book are actually really good; they draw you into the story, however from there it goes down hill.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lost Daughters?

    most of it. its like the author set up the storyline, but it doesn't really move. It keeps reiterating the same information over and over again with the exception of throwing in a couple extra characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was happy that this book didn't focus on sex, drugs, and violence like most black books, but to my disappointment this book was dreadfully uneventful and it moved at a very slow pace. To give you an example, I fell asleep during the last 2 and 1/2 hours of the book. I awoke just 15minutes before the book ended and I was able to follow everything that happened without rewinding.

    "Incredibly long winded!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes dissertations and fairy tale-like situations.


    What could Mary B. Monroe have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Getting to a point or conclusion took and excruciating long time. It made the plots too long and drawn out for a disappointing end.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I could not always distinguish between the characters unless they were introduced


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love the author's other books and I believe it could have been edited to remove the wordiness


    Any additional comments?

    This read had been exasperating because I want to get to the end but the characters do unrealistic things and the author just will not get to the point!
