It you don't like...change it!
Love the audio version
This book stayed on my mind a few days after I finished.
I listen to books all the time, When I am driving, cleaning, cooking or doing anything quiet. I am AUDOBSESSED!
I could not put this book away! I listened and listened I cried, laughed and yelled at many of the characters in this book. Despite the tragedies and there are many , I really loved the ending.
I found this story to be shocking. I was astounded by the mother's behavior. Really, it was hard to stop listening. I found the end to be satisfying also.
Uptown Girl's Harlem Book Club
One of the best audiobooks I've listened to.... This was a truly remarkable story as well as narration. I had to read it twice. The characters and the plot was well developed. This is a definite must-read. However, be prepared, this story is very disturbing.
I didn't want this book to end, I really enjoyed it that much. I found myself swept into the lives of main character and her dysfunctional family (What a mother, but I pity her). It give me an insight to the cold life and desperate mentality of others before me, and a sense of appreciation for my own life today. I felt so many emotions, happy, sad, angry, amused, disgusted, relief... but never bored, nor confused with that deep poetic type brain riddling writing. I really appreciated Phillips smoothe writing. The narrator did an excellent job and made it even better! This would make an awesome movie or TV special. I can see myself listening to this book again. I highly recommend!
this book is beautifully written. You don't know whether to feel sorry for the mother or hate her. Lizzie Cooper did a wonderful job with the narration and Delores Phillips has written a very powerful book.
