Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberta | 2/9/2014

    " I feared this was going to be Terry McMillan lamenting the loss of her marriage, which had been all over the media. Instead it was TM at her best: funny, irreverent, and really likeable. I couldn't stop reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toshana | 2/5/2014

    " I do not remember this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angi Knickerbocker | 1/30/2014

    " I totally identified with the main character in this book and saw myself in her. I really loved this book, it spoke to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharron | 1/29/2014

    " Maybe this book is one that I couldn't connect with because it's about menopause and midlife crisis. I started the book because my aunt said it was really good. The only reason I finished it is because I kept waiting for the excitement or turn around but it never came. My aunt is older so maybe she could relate to the characters better. I just found it very boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana Jo | 1/22/2014

    " Not a bad book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 1/22/2014

    " Great book - unbelievable stories that happen in the Marilyn's life as a wife, mother of three, caregiver for a live-in mother-in-law, and so much more....really accurate about how hectic the lives of women can be - VERY funny in places and tragically sad in others - great book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Velynn | 1/22/2014

    " "I think I finally get it. You don't have to give everything to own your life. And you dont have to give everything you own to fuel someone else's. This time around I'm not going to pretend I'm the quarterback or the goalie or the last handoff in a relay or the referee. I'm just an older more experienced member of the team who wants to do her part to make sure we all win." (Page 334) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy Johnson | 1/17/2014

    " Not the authors best work "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lei | 1/17/2014

    " I read this and thought ummm she must put alot of her life experiences in her books. Then I saw her on Oprah and it was an episode which unravelled her life. Her Marriage, Her lover betraying her and then coming out. Then running her dry for her money. So i'm expecting a lot of more that in her next book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alissa | 1/11/2014

    " Pssst, Terry: try not to write after you've thrown ceramic poodles at your husband. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadja | 1/1/2014

    " I recommend it. Not a page turner but ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 12/27/2013

    " I loved this book! It was fun and something I think that many women can relate to. If you ever feel alone, then pick up this book. It reminds you that things could be worse, but that they will get better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabel | 12/21/2013

    " Awesome book, written in first person about a women in her forties. Every MOM should read this book! No matter what age you can relate! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/13/2013

    " I enjoy Terry McMillan. She writes indepth about the characters and you feel you actually know them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/1/2013

    " not what I expected, interesting and had lots of language I don't like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrystal | 11/14/2013

    " This was a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 6/7/2013

    " Terry McMillan is consistently good. Glad I found another of her books to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 4/27/2013

    " Not my Favorite Terry McMillan (liked Stella Got Her Groove Back and A Day Late and a Dollar Short)but worth a look or listen. I listened..good roadtrip selection! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaqueline | 2/4/2013

    " Terry has written better books for sure..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beverly | 9/29/2012

    " Every cliche in the book about midlife crisis and middle-aged women finding themselves, but fun-ish. Preachy, especially about elder care and nursing homes; maybe tryiing tocombat the Black horror at nursing home care. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trena | 9/9/2012

    " Though I love Terry McMillan, I think she peaked with Stella and has been trying to recapture that voice ever since. However, I still recommend this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 9/4/2012

    " (audiobook) This was not good. She's written better than this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Taylor | 7/10/2012

    " Ms. McMillan's writing just gets better and better! This novel was at times laugh out loud funny and grab a tissue poignant. A thoroughly good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorena | 3/23/2011

    " I liked it even though I cannot really relate to some of the issues, yet! It is a good reminder to not fight against the things you know you are going to do anyway and just accept the good things they can bring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 11/30/2010
