Recommended for: daughters who are angerballs when it comes to ther oppressive, wonderful mothers

Much of this book I found really aggravating -- the unthinking privilege of the Ya-Yas, their total narcissism, the constant and tedious drama -- and yet I found myself looking forward to my lunch breaks so I could read it. Despite the foreignness of the situations and location, the class and race, there was still enough of my mother and me in Vivi and Siddalee Walker to make the book resonate with me. In the end, that's what I enjoyed (not quite the right word -- you know what I mean, though) most ... but that said, if you don't personally connect with that particular mother/daughter dynamic, it might just leave you pissed off at the hamminess of it all.
