Summary

When Alice Andrews, a reporter from Newark, meets Jack Russworm, a Harvard-educated doctor from Boston, she immediately senses they are from different sides of the tracks. As their love and passion develop, they get lots of advice and warnings from friends and family. Can their relationship survive, or will social status push them apart? The landscape of upper class Black Manhattan society gives a thoroughly modern twist to this tough-girl rich-boy love story. Narrator Kim Staunton captures Good Hair’s sexy humor, subtle social gestures, and the couple’s romantic struggles.

Book was great

I love this author. There were some issues with the recording itself. Not the narration it was the actual quality of the audio. There was an issue with ch 13.

A well told story

I enjoyed the book, for the most part. There was a lot of telling and narration, which I’m not always a fan of. I prefer dialogue. Lots of history being told/remembered by Alice. She was an interesting heroine. Sometimes I understood her, and other times she completely confused me. Can’t say I really liked Jack or Miles. It seemed like they were both missing something. Maybe that was the point of the story. No one has all of what we need. If we’re lucky or fortunate, we find someone who offers most of what we want and need. I guess that’s what Jack represented. The story didn’t feel complete — which may have been the point. Our lives aren’t complete, not until we die. All in all, the story was well told. The title ‘Good Hair’ was both literal and metaphorical, which I liked.
As for the narrator, Kim Staunton was excellent. She is by far my favorite narrator.

A nice, sweet story. Very relatable.

The narrator, Kim Staunton can make reading the dictionary sound fascinating, top it off with relatable story and you have the perfect read.

Very Nice!

Yes, the character development could have been a bit deeper, but the overall storyline was actually very nice. It kept me on my toes. It didn't sway and I felt a longing to keep reading. Very nice.
