Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 2/18/2014

    " Ok, it's chicklit, so it's trashy and shallow but it's also a really fun, breezy read and it's really sassy. A great vacation or beach read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shaunique | 2/18/2014

    " I read this book off and on for a couple months. I enjoyed the plot twists and felt that Valdes-Rodriguez developed some great characters. It was not a page turner for me, but I would recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beatriz | 2/12/2014

    " Easy and fun "girly" book to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Girna | 1/25/2014

    " I heard the CD version and it was quite entertaining with the accents, but I probably would have only given it 1 star if I had read it instead of heard it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa James | 1/18/2014

    " I chose this for an entertaining summer read to give myself a break from the heavier challenge list reading I've been doing. It certainly lived up. This is a story about Latina women who met in college & became a tight knit group, even though they were from different places & backgrounds, like Colombia, Cuba, PR, etc. They all became successful in their own rights, & this story, told by a different "sucia" each chapter, explains that sometimes what you see on the outside is very different than what goes on behind closed doors. But through it all, they love each other, & are there for each other when the chips are down. I learned a bit about several different cultures along the way as well, which I really liked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthann Mercado | 1/11/2014

    " Great book and easy for latinas to relate. It's a must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/7/2014

    " This book is assigned for a class I am a TA for. I really liked it. I found the characters interesting and the book had a good pace to it. I'm sure there will be some interesting class discussion. I think I'm going to try the sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Bryant | 11/17/2013

    " Very entertaining...I love books about life & relationships so this book def. fit in...it reminded me of a hispanic version of sex & the city. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H3yd00 | 10/18/2013

    " Another book I never would have picked up if it wasn't in the free section. I laughed through the entire book. It's about a group of 20-something Hispanic women, and their different views and ways of life in the U.S. Very good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Johnson | 10/14/2013

    " This was a good read and I could really relate to their experiences. Brown-girl power. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miggy | 10/6/2013

    " Its "Sex in the City" for latinas!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miami University Libraries | 10/1/2013

    " King Library (2nd floor) | PS3622.A425 D57 2004 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison Heeney | 9/27/2013

    " Good light reading. Latina chick lit. Gives you a glimpse into another culture, but a modern glimpse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 9/15/2013

    " Hispanic-influenced story of a group of female friends...from professional to stay-at-home mom. None of the characters are one-dimensional...in fact, the author leads you to form impressions of the characters and then you end up changing them later in the novel. Nice story of friendship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia Monreal | 8/29/2013

    " A fun read. If you went to college and made life-long amigas, then you will relate and enjoy this novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 7/8/2013

    " Fun! In there with Ya-Ya Sisterhood fun and drama! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel R | 5/25/2013

    " This was a great book I love it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanie | 4/26/2013

    " Book about a group of friends who met in college and still get together on a regular basis, the call themselves the "sucias" or dirty girls. Some funny parts, good chick book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cody | 3/4/2013

    " This book is funny and it is sweet because of the relationships the group of women kept over the years. I can relate to this book with the relationships of some of my closests girl friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 2/21/2013

    " Love, love, love 98% of this book, and that is more than I can say for most. The first chapter had me literally laughing out loud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Genie Morales | 6/10/2012

    " I loved it kept me laughing & became an instant fan of the author - have been following her work ever since. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosanne | 11/30/2011

    " It is a little slow at first, but just like Sex in the City, I found my favorite girls. It was just okay for me. I really did not like the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri | 8/2/2011

    " I've heard about this book for years and am so excited to listen to it! (It is neat that the author lives here in ABQ and was named one of Time magazine's 25 most influential Hispanics.) Isabel Keating is the reader and I'm hooked after a half chapter! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johari | 7/8/2011

    " I found the characters to be simplistic and their situations a bit unrealistic but I loved hearing storied of successful latinas. I especially liked that their was a black latina character, it's a perspective that's sorely lacking in fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beatriz | 6/14/2011

    " Easy and fun "girly" book to read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 5/27/2011

    " It's like the "Waiting to Exhale" for Latinas...So good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 5/22/2011

    " This book goes into the relationships of good friends. One of the issues is domestic abuse. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hwachs | 4/17/2011

    " Corny, but easy to keep reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 2/26/2011

    " Our bookclub took it's name from this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/4/2011

    " I think I was too young for this book when I read it. It was a little too grown up for me. It was ok. I think I would get more out of it now that I have matured a little "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 2/3/2011

    " While the book does not aspire to any deep or aiding look at the struggles of Latina women in the US, it also does not shy away from these topics. Don't be put off by the cover, while a fast paced read, this is a book which has its serious poignant moments. "
