Thanks for the link. But wow! You read 400 pages in 5 hours???! You're good! LOL
You pretty much echoed what a lot of the people thought who posted comments about not liking the book at all. Many of them also thought the same things about the accomplishments of Midnight at seven years old, as well.
I must say, all of this has made me really curious about the story, so I think I'm still going to get it. I love Sistah Souljah for one thing, but also because I want to support her as a writer. I know a lot of work had to go into writing 400 pages even if it's not on par with TCWE. I'm glad I didn't go out and buy the book right away, because, I definitely would have been among the disappointed I'm sure.
But since I know what it's NOT about maybe I can be more open to the story. And maybe I will be able to forgive her for not writing the sequel we all yearned for and expected. We'll see.
But tell me Mocha, did you find her portrayal of African American women offensive? That was the complaint that was repeated time and again on the BN website.
