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 didn't care for this book. I've read her other books and really enjoyed them but this was seemed to drag on...
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.
This is Terry McMillan's best novel.
bought it at the public library fun rasier have not read
Another book from the incomparable Terry McMillan. Just a touch raunchy, very upbeat....you will love it!
Quick, easy read. Good vacation book.
It was different. It makes you wonder about your past, present and future. How you absorb a persons respect, feelings, sincerity and love.
Very good book. Hard to put down.
DID GIVE ME A LOT OF INSIGHT INTO THE BLACK FAMILY. VERY WELL WRITTEN.
