This book was purchased when it first hit the book stores. Terry McMillan's books has been a great source of enjoyment to read. I was able to become certain characters in her books. To me, all here books were great reads!

Disappearing Acts had a wonderful life lesson for me that has just been applied to my life. It is not about the outward, it is all about what is "within."

Both characters were able to grow spiritually during the romance and even more when separated. At certain times in life, being alone is the best teacher there is. I call it the "Great Divine."

Thank you Terry!

Don't get me wrong, this book was very well written and unable to put down, but the reason I gave it three stars is how the author made females look very bad. Like they were nothing but sex objects for men and low lives who used them for money. Plus I hated Franklin. He was a terrible person. I'm sorry, but abusing and then raping your girlfriend and then blaming her for the way your life has turned in a booze fill road to nowhere, isn't exactly someone I'd like as a main male character. Even when he told his side of the story, I didn't feel one of bit of sorrow for him. I hated him even more. I think the author should start making her female characters strong minded and strong willed and her male characters less of players who blame women and get their way no matter what.

    This book wasn't the best book, but it was among them. I read it in 5 hours, and I hated Franklin for the way he treated Zora. Also, Terry made the women characters less powerful than the males.

    Nothing but the truth

    I just watched, disappearing acts again, I wish i knew where my copy of the book is, so i could read it again. The relationship between Franklin and Zora, is nothing but the truth, I have seen it before. Hell I have lived parts of it. Terry is a great writer and wesley was great as franklin.

    So good!!

    I loved, loved, loved 'Diappearing Acts' by Terry McMillan. I loved 'Waiting to Exhale' and couldn't put 'How Stella Got Her Groove Back' down. Her writing is real, open, and funny. Love it all, girl! Keep it up!

    HBO Movie

    I'm so happy to see that HBO is picking up this story and bringing it to life. It will be so grand to see it in a life like format. Keep writing Terry!
