While the story was engaging enough, ultimately it was too preachy for me. The chapters start with church mothers talking but honestly those sections detracted rather than added to the story. The characters weren't really believable to me. I didn't care for the way the reader over enunciated words. In sum, I just didn't like this book

Would you try another book from Brit Bennett and/or Adenrele Ojo?
I would absolutely not try another book by the author.
Has The Mothers turned you off from other books in this genre?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The reading was fine.
Any additional comments?
This book failed to capture any real nuance, understanding or compassion for the main character. There are already enough voices projecting onto women how they feel or ought to feel about abortion, especially by people who have never faced the decision themselves. Unfortunately now there is one more. The writing wasn't anything special. Lots of attempts at illuminating analogies that fell flat.

not much exciting happened, if it was a physical book, I may not have finished.
Really enjoyed the first three quarters did not l8ke the ending...it could have been so much more. All through the book I had felt connected to the characters but did not feel the ending gave enough insight into their feelings and thoughts about the decisions and choices that they made in the end.
