I really loved this book, I just couldn't let go of it. As a mother with four kids, I actually finished reading it in two nights.

I was a little disappointed in this book, not that it was poorly written, but the story behind it. What's up with the sistah? I won't give any more away, but it is still a good read.

Terry McMillan is a master of dialog ~ she writes in a way that you can hear the charachters talking to each other and it's totally engrossing. Zora and Franklin are a delicious foray into a raw and gritty love story.

It was different. It makes you wonder about your past, present and future. How you absorb a persons respect, feelings, sincerity and love.

From cover:
Terry McMillan is hotter than ever:

"If Ntozake Shange, Jane Austen, and Danielle Steel collaborated on a novel of manners, [Disappearing Acts] might be the result." (New Yorker)

"Contains someting increasingly rare in books or films today: a full-blown, sophisticated love affair between two African-American adults." (Denver Post)

"A funny, earthy novel..ribaldly realistic. [Speaks] across class and color lines." (New York Newsday)

"A stunning achievement." (Cosmopolitan)

"A down-to-earth portrayal of love, yearning, and self-preservation...brimming with energy and the hard facts of life." (Kansas City Star)

"Gripping and moving...intensely realistic." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
