I can't begin to explain all of what disgusted me. The mistakes were out of this world. The main characters name, which is all of four letters, was mispelled on the COVER, in a sentence directly underneath a sentence that had his name correctly spelled. How that happens I'll never know. There were many, many times when I had no clue who was speaking, who they were speaking to, etc. I read paragraphs where one person was speaking and then a sentence from another person was thrown into the same quotation marks with no break at all. I just had to guess and use context clues as to what the hell was going on. It was impossible and a headache to get through it. Why did I keep going? I like Clark's writing and I just couldn't buy that this was it. I'm not sure what went wrong here but something was drastically wrong. ...more
Brown has to be the top female urban fiction author IMO. Brown's books aren't the "usual" urban fiction. You don't pick up a Tracy Brown book and getBrown has to be the top female urban fiction author IMO. Brown's books aren't the "usual" urban fiction. You don't pick up a Tracy Brown book and get T. Styles in return. You get an actual author who can write. One who obviously thought beforehand, made decisions about what would be best here and there and moved on it. I've known people who thought they wouldn't ever like urban fiction. They've come to this conclusion because most of the genre is like Styles and a host of others names I can't remember at the moment. When I meet someone like that I tell them to read Brown, Dwayne S. Joseph or one of the select other few who continuously push out winners. They never release crap. If the genre were all like this it'd be HUGE. I don't care if you're black, white 20 or 90, male or female, Brown's books are good and that's the end of it. Even if I didn't care for her stories I could never say she's a poor writer. She's anything but. This was an awesome sequel to Snapped and I can't wait to read more. (Actually, I can wait. It makes it better and I know she's taking the time to put out quality material.) Unlike the 7 book series from no name "authors" that haven't even been edited. Brown will always be a favorite of mine and if that hadn't already been cemented Aftermath would have seen to it....more
This is a GREAT sequel to The Million Dollar Divorce and I can't wait for the third and final story in this saga! Johnson is a powerful and talented aThis is a GREAT sequel to The Million Dollar Divorce and I can't wait for the third and final story in this saga! Johnson is a powerful and talented author in every sense of the word. The ending was AWESOME in this and the twists and turns in the second half of the book were amazing. I was talking out loud to myself numerous times! :) The only problem I had with the book, which was MY problem and not anything wrong with the book and certainly nothing to which I'd take away a star) is the first half of the book reiterates a lot of what happened in the first book. This has to happen of course for anyone who hadn't read Divorce already but being that I read them back to back it was a tiny bit annoying. That right there folks, is my only problem with the book and like I said, it's all my own. This isn't just urban-fiction- this is for anyone who enoys GREAT fiction. Do not let the genre fool you- I know so many people that would LOVE this book and am recommending it to many. I'm planning on getting the rest of Johnson's books that I don't currently own and reading them all- if they're anything like this I won't be dissappointed! ...more
This was definitely unlike any other urban-lit book I've read before and I cant wait to get Judgement Day to find out what happens with Chris, BrandonThis was definitely unlike any other urban-lit book I've read before and I cant wait to get Judgement Day to find out what happens with Chris, Brandon and Mia. These are the three people the story follows and they are all characters that most people can relate to in more than one way. They all have their faults and they all have some great traits just like everyone else. The situations in the book could have sounded really mundane with a lesser author but it was as if Anya Nicole breathed life into each. I definitely suggest any urban-lit fan read this book and any reader in general who enjoys an intelligent story with great characters. ...more
**spoiler alert** Wow- I was worried this wouldn't live up to all the hype that I've heard. As soon as anyone hears this name of this book all I hear**spoiler alert** Wow- I was worried this wouldn't live up to all the hype that I've heard. As soon as anyone hears this name of this book all I hear are GREAT things so needless to say I was scared to start because I didn't want to be let down. I can't believe how the book grabbed me from page one. Now I see why everyone is upset she took so much time off from writing. She should be writing as much as possible.
I don't know where to start. I wish the book hadn't ended in a way because I absolutely LOVED reading about Winter. Midnight is a little mysterious in the book so when he shows up again I didn't know how I felt. The ending is great in my opinion although I guess I kind of wanted a happy ending but what does that teach us? I loved how the author made Winter so likeable even with her being so spoiled and self-involved. I love just about everything this book has to offer and I can see myself reading it again in the future. I plan on reading No Disrespect also sometime soon just to see what Souljah did with that one. Definitely recommended!...more
