Weekend Warriors: Revenge of the Sisterhood #1 | [Fern Michaels]

Weekend Warriors: Revenge of the Sisterhood #1

On the surface, these seven women are as different as can be - but each has had her share of bad luck, from cheating husbands to sexist colleagues to a legal system that often doesn't do its job. Now, drawn together by tragedy, they're forging a bond that will help them right the wrongs committed against them and discover an inner strength they didn't know they had. The Sisterhood is learning that when bad things happen, you can roll over and play dead...or you can get up fighting...

    "Likeable"

    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.

    "Weekend Warriors"

    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!!!

    "Wonderful! I laughed, cried and cheered them on"
    What did you love best about Weekend Warriors?

    The forming of the group- how they all had to adjust and learn to trust each other


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Myra- such spunk


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Addicted"

    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.

    "GREAT LISTENING"

    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.

    "Worst book I've ever bought"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Fern Michaels again?

    No way. No possible way.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Laural Merlington?

    Maybe. Her accents were over the top and seemed to come and go. There are many better narrators.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Weekend Warriors?

    All of them.

    "Didn't appreciate the language"

    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!

    "HIDDEN TREASURE ON PAR W/ "IN DEATH" SERIES"

    NO SPOILERS
    NOTE: THIS IS A SERIES REVIEW NOT INDIVIDUAL BOOK!

    I started reading the Sisterhood series years ago and stopped reading because my choice of genre changed. I recently decided to pick up the book where I left off as an audible read. I have now completed the entire series to date and have to give it my highest recommendation and to put Fern Michaels/Laural Merlington on par with the J. D. Robb/ Susan Ericksen Team


    I've stated before I prefer to recommend series not individual books, this series is a Hidden Treasure!. I'm surprised at how few Audible readers have yet to discovered it. I know I'm going out on a limb to compare it favorably to J. D. Robbs and Susan Erickson "In Death" Series, but I feel I have good reason. The Sisterhood is rich with characters exquisitely portrayed by Laural Merlington on par with Susan Erickson (In Death) a very hard act to follow. The story premise: very bad people have escaped the long arm of the law and have "gotten away" with despicable crimes. The reappearing cast of damaged undeniably interesting and unique women with male counterparts equally unique and interesting, band together to see justice is served. It is vigilantism and these women are sometimes quite graphic in the mode chosen to exact revenge, but as they say, the punishment fits the crime. The main character Myra has untold wealth and her lover/main squeeze Charles is a "retired" MI5 agent who still has close ties to the Queen of England. They use their own "Control Center" to gather a "Sisterhood" of women, women picked because each has her own horrific backstory where justice has not been served. These women in subsequent books get to enact their own "justice" towards the perpetrator of the despicable crimes that has devastated and impacted their individual life's.


    It sounds pretty heavy and there is drama! but the repartee between our ladies and men are laugh out loud sometimes hilarious fun. There is an element of fantasy, humor, romance/love and mystery/thriller in every book. Fern Michael's "The Sisterhood" has a rich tapestry of characters with storylines and characters that evolve throughout the series, unique plotlines and a bond of sisterhood that is enviable.. These elements and many more, lead me to give this series my highest recommendation... "Do Not Read Sisterhood, Listen to It" Laural Merlington adds a dimension by her imbued characterization of each man and women that can not be found in the reading. The last book to date in this series "Kiss and Tell" gives the boys in this series their own segue way into Ms. Michael's new miniseries "The Brotherhood" but I urge you to start at Sisterhood Number 1 "Weekend Warrior Revenge of the Sisterhood" special note first book is a little heavier being the purpose is heavily weighted in establishing the series plotlines but each book gets a little more humorous, wait till you meet Anne...what a hoot! .

    "The Sisterhood" is an absolutely 'Must Have' in your collection particularly if you love J. D. Robbs "In Death" series. As with "In Death" each book has a multi-genre and unique plot line, the main character Myra is damaged with devastating back story, untold wealth at her disposal and a unrivaled drive for "justice" (just not the legal kind) Myra's lover Charles has spy skills and a control center akin to Rork's and lastly but definitely not least a plethora of delightful and humorous characters brought to life and exquisitely portrayed by the superb talents of Laural Merlington! Sound familiar...

    "No More Michaels"

    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!

    "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.
