Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 2/16/2014

    " fast read, entertaining. prose awkward at times, and often some characters felt a little too "perfect" - too stereotypical or unbelievable. but i see why he is a best seller. feels like cotton candy, this one did. I think I'll try to read "and this too shall pass" next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly Trotter | 2/15/2014

    " Pulled off the shelf and re-read very well written finished in one night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skip | 1/23/2014

    " Only on chapter two . . . a little more graphic than I anticipated, but its got my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Williams | 1/21/2014

    " This book was inapportiate. I thought the book was explaining too much. The story did explain about the gay community, which was nice. It was a good story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Phenonemom | 1/20/2014

    " This book was awful. I found it through a Shelfari LGBT novels group, and it was highly rated. It was trite and full of product placement. Yuck. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thom | 1/18/2014

    " An interesting look at the crossroads between the black bi/homosexual and the black church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valeria | 1/15/2014

    " While I have read several other books from this author, it's been a long time ago, so this was a pleasant surprise. I defintely had a love/hate relationship with the main character, but in the end, I had to root for him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Britt | 1/14/2014

    " This book had me on edge from beginning to end, I was totally surprised at the ending, a MUST read... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie M. | 1/11/2014

    " Okay, so E. Lynn Harris wasn't a talented writer. But that's not why anyone reads him anyways. People read his books because they tell the stories of Black men who are OMG SUCCESSFUL! And GAY! Or SEXUALLY CONFLICTED! And who fall in love with OTHER GAY BLACK MEN! And there are HAPPY ENDINGS! In other words, stories that you mostly can't find anywhere else in the entire universe of mainstream published literature, because mainstream published literature doesn't think these stories are worth publishing. For that alone, I refuse to give anything he wrote less than three stars. (Even though, bless his dear departed heart, the prose is just so bad that I can't quite bring myself to ever give him more than three stars...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda S. | 1/10/2014

    " Not my usual type of book, but pretty good. Some of the characters were superficial stereotypes, but the story had an important message and I enjoyed it overall. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keita Ito | 12/13/2013

    " A good look at the African American gay community in the south. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shana Burton | 12/12/2013

    " This book was only average when compared to other E. Lynn Harris books, but it's a great lazy-afternoon-or-weekend read. If, however, homosexuality conflicts with your spirituality, you might want to stay away from this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 11/17/2013

    " This book definitely kept my interest, and I love E. Lynn Harris's style, may he rest in peace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie Eneh | 11/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kwain | 10/21/2013

    " This is the 3rd book I've read by E. Lynn Harris, B boy blues, Basketball Jones and I Say a Little Prayer. I Say A Little Prayer is probably my favorite at this point, all though all of his book thus far has been very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 8/12/2013

    " I had never read an e. Lynn Harris Book...Definitely didn't know what I was missing. He will be missed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamyara | 3/10/2013

    " I have read all of E. Lynn Harris novels but this was by far the best novel. His characters where well developed and the plot was well crafted. I love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine Jackson | 11/1/2012

    " Lively book about coming to terms with one's sexuality and one's true dreams. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LaRhonda | 10/20/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janee' | 4/12/2012

    " I love novels such as this one. Kept me interested the whole way thru. I was disappointed at the end. I expected a different ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April Heinrich | 1/8/2012

    " umm, what to say. This book was a little strange. It wasn't bad, but I couldn't relate to any of the characters and their lives seemed a bit unrealistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 12/23/2011

    " this book was good i really liked it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Burd | 12/23/2011

    " I have read many of his books, this one was good as they all are. It was different, some graphic sex scenes that were just out of place. Overall, a fast moving read with the perfect ending. I will continue to seek out this author, it's a feel good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mia | 6/29/2011

    " Some of the characters seem a bit too type-cast and the end of the book turned a bit too soap operatic, but it is clear why Harris gained the popularity he did. His affection and empathy for his characters comes through and is contageous. "
