This book was such a slow read. I had to make myself finish reading it. Not one of Ms. Terry best reads.
Terry McMillan does it again. Some people will think that her books are formulaic in terms of plot and nearly characters. But what most people don't realized is that sometimes the best books are the ones you can come back to over and over again and relive them through new characters/situations. Every book McMillan writes has a heart and that heart teaches many lessons.
Some of her books can hit closer to home than others, and Who Asked You? Is not an exception. Some people will call this book heart warming, realistic, but in the end, it's not what the book is, it is what was taken from it as a reader.
McMillan is truly one of the few authors I enjoy without qualm or question.
Addictive and compelling. The characters all have flaws, and faults, but those are not looked past and are highlighted in a real life situation. Absolutely wonderful to read.
Painful to read: One dimensional characters, too many subplots, and possibly the worst, stilted, embarassing dialogue I've read in a long time.
Good book but not one of my favorites from Terry. I felt this book had way too much going on and too many subplots to keep up with. Not a bad book but wasn't great either.
My favorite of all Terry McMillan's books! In all her novels, especially this one, she really makes you care about her characters.
Three sisters and their respective families and friends -- these are the ingredients of a full, complicated, loving, bickering novel. Each chapter is told from the perspective of one of the characters and it is really interesting to look at the others from each one's view at different times throughout the story. I liked them all at different times and liked some less much of the time, just like in my real life. I got completely caught up in their lives, thrilled with them, grieved with them, laughed and cried with them. This novel is well worth a read.
My favorite McMillan book since "A Day Late and a Dollar Short." I always find myself rooting for nearly all her characters, even the ones who seem unsympathetic at first.
This novel is about a grandmother who had to assume guardianship of her grandchildren after their mom had made some mistakes in her life. The book deal with the struggles the grandmother had to go through bringing up her grandchildren in a less than perfect neighborhood, as well as dealing with issues with her own grown children and her know it all siblings. It is a good quick read.
Terry goes back to her roots and pen a creative true to life story that revolves around 3 sisters. She addresses true to live situations that sisters encounter, such as drugs, accepting a family member's sexuality, and even racism. If you're a fan of her story "Mama", then you would defiantly like this one. Who asked you is truly a page turner!
