Critic Reviews

"[A] feel-good story full of humor and hope." (Library Journal)
"Bowen's newest release in the black Christian fiction genre revisits characters from earlier novels while it offers an entertaining mix of humor, morality, and steamy relationships as well as an intimate portrayal of academic politicking and college sports." (Booklist)

Big Snoozer

The author gave way too much detail on little things that was not important through out the story instead of focusing on a dialogue. I fell asleep a couple of times listening to this book as well as skipping ahead. Not worth the buy

Great Book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Up at the College to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed the print and the audio edition. Audio editions are great during long commutes or waiting for my daughter in my car.

If you could take any character from Up at the College out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would love to take Yvonne Fountain out to dinner. I admire her faith in God and ability to forgive her ex-hubbie. Forgivenessis always followed by a blessing.

COULD NOT GET THRU IT

I could not really follow this book very well. could not really follow the charcters. The book started with her getting divorced from her husband and moving frm the house with the kids. I thought the book woul focus more on her marriage with Darryl and how the kids adjusted to being without a father and how God helped her make it thru.

Loved it!

This is the 3rd book I've read from this author. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator was perfect. Amazing, a real treat!

Started strong but got very boring!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it would have stuck with the storyline from the beginning.
It drifted into a in-necessary story line.

Would you ever listen to anything by Michele Andrea Bowen again?

Haven't decided

How could the performance have been better?

If there was some kind of enthusiasm in her voice.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If she would have stayed on topic of the beginning chapter.

A GOOD Christian based Story<br />

Loved It! An exciting story - that's relatable funny and loaded with bible references that coincides with the story-it is also very well read - I wanted the story to continue

Fun

Love the interesting characters. Funny good time if you don't take it too seriously. A few plot issues.
