"Readers who grow weary of seeing the bad guys get away with their crimes will enjoy seeing what happens when well-funded, very angry women take the law into their own hands." (Booklist)
Sometimes it was a bit corny in spots, but it was a likeable enough chick lit adventure book where I will purchase the next one in the series to see what happens next.
I love this book and I really like the series. My only complaint and it is a big one. Why would anyone believe that a woman and man between the ages of 60 and 65 would sound like a 80 year old shaky and frail person. It is hard to get past the voices of Miya and James. I have decided to read the rest of the series because the way these people are interpreted by the reader is driving me crazy. I am 62 Years old and if I ever sound like that I am going to jump under a bus!!!
The forming of the group- how they all had to adjust and learn to trust each other
Myra- such spunk
I truly enjoyed this from start to finish - all of it. It made me laugh- and nearly cry. I cheered the ladies on and am anxious to listen to the next book
Once I started this series I am just plowing through them all; the sisterhood. I listen to and from work and find myself in the parking lot getting one more paragraph in. The story is great. The narrator does a wonderful job in my opinion given male voices are very difficult for women. She does great! Once you get to about the 4th or 5th one? hard to figure out the next in the series. I goggled Fern Michaels series and got a list to help me figure out which one was next; since a few of them do not have the sisterhood in the title. Like Hokus Pokus. I really am enjoying them all.
As with all of the Sisterhood Series this was a totally enjoyable listen. Laurel Merlington does a superb job with the audio and I love the story line.
The Audible blurb does not make it clear that this book is about a group of women who take cold-blooded, graphic revenge on men. Apparently tracking down rapists, drugging them and castrating them is empowering and even light-hearted. In addition, the author couldn't be bothered to do a 3 minute Google search on anything. Belgian Malinois dogs do not weigh 110 pounds unless they're 35 pounds or more overweight. Even a really good make-up artist cannot make Caucasian and African-American women up well enough to pass as Chinese IN China. "Biker dive bars" rarely serve "luscious steaks, plump baked potatoes and delicious salads". The whole book is completely implausible and often laughable, not in a good way.
No way. No possible way.
Maybe. Her accents were over the top and seemed to come and go. There are many better narrators.
All of them.
The book was not my kind of story, I'm not into hard women. I don't like listening to a bunch of swear words, there are way too many well written and good books that get the point across without that. I also didn't like the character that was 60 and sounded 100. I am 60 and don't sound that old. Not a good listen for me..wish I could get a refund!
I bought this because I have seen so many Fern Michaels titles and thought I'd try one. There were so many things I didn't like about this book! The narrator is not my favorite and really does sound far to old. The women involved are pretty much unbelievable - and bloodthirsty. The details are stereotypic and the plot uninteresting. There was not one character I found appealing. I found the accent used for the American born of Chinese descent a bit offensive. The book is old fashioned in thinking and values, not funny, and I just cannot recommend it. Then again, I'm more into forgiveness and healing than revenge and violence. I really can't figure out why I bought this - maybe it was a finger twitch accident!
I don't know, I didn't read the print edition, but I love this story and the characters
I think I liked the camaraderie of the women how they look after each other and Charles looks out for all of them
I liked all of them for different reasons. I least liked Julia, she seemed so weak and timid. Loved Katherine and her spunk. Loved Myra for her generosity. Felt bad for Nicky and her situation with Jack but admired her sticking to her guns. Not sure about the others yet. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!!
"Never a dull moment"
This fast-paced and well told story about a group of bitter and dangerous women getting together and starting to take revenge on the men who've wronged them kept me very well entertained throughout it. Friendship, a secret society, danger and risky but well-hatched plans put into action to take down evil-doers who can't be punished by law made Weekend Warriors a gripping and exciting listen for me, and also made me look forward to some similar action-packed and intriguing experiences with the rest of the books in this series.
