Helen wasn't just born the devious vixen of New Day Temple of Faith. There had to be something rooted deep within her to make her inflict and feed off other people's pain. Perhaps it was her own pain that she had suppressed for so many years - an unimaginable pain - that created an internal prison of which her mind was the only captive. But once the demons within her break free, those around her better beware, as Helen surely becomes the epitome of the saying, "Hurt people, hurt people".

What made the experience of listening to I Ain't Me No More the most enjoyable?

It kept me listening wanting to know more about what Dub next move will be.

What did you like best about this story?

The way Helen flipped the script on Dub when he was making all those deadly threats to her and her family while he was in jail and she finally stood up to his crazy behind. With the help of her grandma and auntie.

Have you listened to any of Diana Luke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes Diana Luke performances was good, and she is a great narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't have a extreme reaction but I did laugh and cry a little.
