"Terry McMillan's novels have always been about telling the uncensored truth about friends, family, lovers, and oneself. Through addictively revealing conversations - including an instructive one about the sexual prowess of men who made the A list - McMillan's narrator is the ideal running commentator on what smart women do to reach the pinnacle of success and what they must do to get the hell out before it's too late. It's a story about both reinvention and acceptance, told in McMillan's quintessential voice, now even more expansive, prismatically perceptive, and laugh-aloud generous in how we talk about love and all its wonders." (Amy Tan, New York Times best-selling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement)
"The warmth and wisdom we have come to expect from Terry McMillan are on full display and you won't be able to walk away from Georgia and her exuberant life. This is that thrilling kind of novel that reminds us how sometimes, fairy tales happen when we least expect them, if only we open ourselves to possibility." (Roxane Gay, New York Times best-selling author of Bad Feminist and An Untamed State)
"I Almost Forgot About You"
I gave this book 2 stars bc it seems to have a good storyline from the synopsis. Honestly, the narration was so bad I could not listen beyond the second chapter. I am an avid fan of Ms. McMillan's writing. On the other hand her voice is worse than finger nails grating on a chalk board. I want my credit back, and then I will purchase the ebook to read. Ms. McMillan no disrespect, you are an amazingly talented writer. Please leave narrating to the experts. You don't do your book justice. Submitted with honesty, love and much respect.
I looove Terri, but this story was kinda boring, and she reads it like Eeyore.
"The narration of this book is terrible"
A different narrator, would have made this book much better
Yes, but only if she is not narrating.
Her voice is so flat when reading this book.
I only got through the first chapter.
"Great Story, Horrible Narration"
Yes and No. I would recommend they buy paper back. Narration was boring.
Narration was horrible. I couldn't distinguish between characters.
"Good Story but ...."
The story was pretty good but I did not like the narration - the performance was very flat. I found myself constantly replaying certain parts because I felt like I missed some details or something was confusing. I wonder if I would have felt the same way if I was actually reading the book. The story line was pretty good but I lost interest towards the end.
"Cute story, HORRIBLE Narrator"
This book held my interest because of the story but it was a hard fight not to quite in the first five minutes due to the very unsuitable narrator.
This book was good from the beginning to the end. It had me laughing and crying.
"Would love to listen to someone else reading the book"
I can't differentiate the character when Mcmillan reads her own books. She is so dry and the characters don't come through. I think I would have enjoyed it with a different reader.
"Better with different narrator"
The story was interesting however the performance was terrible. Would have been much better with a different narrator.
"A different narrator needed"
I enjoyed the story line; however, Ms. McMillan's narrating was mono toned and made it a difficult to continue to the end.
