NOT GOOD FOR ME

What happened, Corey Allen? You usually narrate stories so well. Twice I've tried listening to this book and twice I simply couldn't get past the first few chapters. I attribute much of this to the narrator. As I said in my description, if the narrator doesn't cut it, then I simply can't listen to the story. That's too bad because there are many good stories that pique my interest but lose me on their choice of narrator. Oh well...I should have asked for my chip back.

- Amazon Customer "Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it..."

Boring

Would you try another book from Lutishia Lovely and/or Corey Allen?

Probably not. I had a hard time getting into her book Mind Your Own Business and an even harder time trying to get into this book, I probably will not finish this book.


Would you ever listen to anything by Lutishia Lovely again?

Maybe but not too soon.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Corey Allen speaks in a monotone voice which makes it hard to listen to him. Actually his reading is one of the reasons that the book was so boring.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None that I can see.


Any additional comments?

There are way to many key characters (Adam, Ace, Judge, Kiesha, Sterling, Diane, Quintin, Candance, Abernathy, Joyce, Zavier, Bianaca, Bobby, Chardonay her two kids, Shala, Malcom, Cooper, Jeff, Tousan, Marcus, Marietta, Booker, Zoe, Evelyn) just to name a few. It was too hard trying to keep up with all of the different characters.
