Eric Jerome Dickey has a powerful command of his portrayal of relationships. It was very relatable and emotionally gripping. I laughed at some parts, shook my head sometimes and I cried at parts. This book was like Sex and the City or Girlfriends. This plot revolved around a sisterhood featuring Kwanzaa Browne, Destiny Jones, Ericka Stockwell and Indigo Abdulrahaman. These best friends have seen each other through various phases of their lives and now they have made a pact to celebrate each friend in a special way on their respective birthdays.
The narrator took awhile to grow on me because her Indigo voice felt comically fake but I eventually got comfortable enough that it didn't affect my enjoyment of the storyline.
The love the ladies had for each other really made this story endearing. The author writes really memorable characters and this one was no exception. I love the resolution in the conflicts each character was dealing with and felt each woman was in a much stronger place emotionally than they were at the beginning of the book. My only complaint, which is a consistent one with this author’s book, is the length. It was too long and it would have been even more powerful with a trim.
This story will still command your attention from page 1. If you want The Girlfriends experience, then pick up this audiobook now.
This book was great I loved all the characters l laughed, I cried l felt all there pain I can't chose which I liked the most # friendship goals
Struggled to listen... a lot of detail in all the wrong places. The narrator did well. But, it reminded me why I have gave up on EJD books. blah.
I enjoyed the book, having had cancer I could relate to the fear Erica carried with her. At time some of the characters got on my nerves, but ultimately they all played a wonderful role in the storyline. Love isn't perfect and this book showed that.
I can't lie I was a little upset with how the book ended, but the book was realistic. Definitely worth reading.
Don't this remind you of that tv show, but a Showtime afterdark version?
The narration was excellent. She sound so good I googled her and feel in love.
It's a solid story, has all the elements, but it feels like it was written as a movie script. Way too much dialogue ... EJD you talk too much!
Acceptable ending. You could tell it was left open for a follow-up. I would recommend this book.
great story about sisterhood and friendship the narrator was. otherwise the best her African accent was funny at times when it shouldn't have been but getting past her voice and actually listening to the story
Funny, Real, and Relatible
I was intrigued with every character. I loved the story-line and humor, I would actually listen to all 18 hrs again
When Ericka's cancer came back. The relationship between her and her mother. Indigo and her love triangle
We need more books like this with the perfect mixture of story-line, humor, sadness , and suspense .
So Very Vivid
When Destiny kicked in Hakeem's door!
The end touched my soul, no lie!
This is the type of book that should have a series or a trilogy. Every person in the world that has ever been THROUGH IT can totally relate to the book.
