Not for me

The plots and the people engaged me. The heavy gossipy tone turned me off. Each wears thick levels of protection, too thick to be accessible for me. Turn it off, I wanted shout as I ducked under the hair drier.

Missing Parts

Any additional comments?

Initially, I was anxious to listen to a book whose movie had so much popularity but i was immediately disappointed once purchased. This version only contains four chapters. I haven't bothered to listen because I know there is more. Audible, PLEASE ADD THE OTHER CHAPTERS OF THIS BOOK!

Just watch the movie

The book was wayyyy to quick. I kove the movie, but boy they had to add a lot in the storylines bc this book just falls flat! Plus....Terry McMillan should NOT be a narrator. this is my 2nd audible book with her reading and had I know she was narrating this book, i would have passed. There is NO emotion. She is literally reading the words. I listened for nostalgic reasons after watching the movie. I see I didn't miss anything. Just watch the movie. Its wayyyy better
