This book started out full throttle, i couldn't put it down...but as it progressed, i liked the underdeveloped characters less and less. If you are a Sex and the City fan, it is hard to imagine the future Carrie Bradshaw as the Carrie Bradshaw in this book...in the end, it was just okay for me.

As much I love and have loved Jennifer Hudson since American Idol, I did not love this book - to be honest, I didn't even read the last chapter because I was so over it. The story jumps from one milestone to the next without much lead up or explaination in between. Also, she never goes into detail about her family tragedy, which to me, had a huge impact on her life and what follwed.
Jennifer is quite self confident, which is great! Being a full figured woman myself, it's very inspiring. However, at some points I feel that she boardlined on arrogence - and that bothered me.
I was very much anticipating this book and am saddened by such a huge disappointment.

This book was ok....very slow, took almost more than half of the book for something to happen. I keep giving Nicholas Sparks the benefit of the doubt, always to be disappointed.

This book was light and fun and a quick read...but it was heartwarming and sweet. It was funny and full of likeable characters. I read it in two sittings.

I could not wait to read this book after Oprah hyped it up for months on her show. Sadly, it was a big bomb for me...it was slow and sad and overall pretty boring. I found it very difficult to get through, but i hate to not finish a book once i've started. I was so disappointed and thoroughly dissatisfied with this read.
