A true joy to read. You will get caught up in 'Madea'

Being one of Mr. Perry's biggest fans, I was anticipating the release of this book. I must say I was not dissapointed. Once again Madea has made us take a hard and comedic look at ourselves. I have now passed it on to my two teen-aged daughters to read and I know they will enjoy it as much as I did. Keep up the good work Tyler, and tell Madea 'You go Girl!'

    Funny but Predictable

    For those of you unfamiliar with Mabel 'Madea' Simmons, this book will have you rolling on the floor laughing, or nodding your head in agreement with some of the sage pearls of wisodm Madea (via Tyler Perry) shares. But for those of us who are die-hard Madea fans, this book is a 'burnch' (as Brown would say)of regurgitated lines and material from TP's hit plays and movies. Not that it didn't make me smile I had plenty of happy moments reading this. But as soon as I read one sentence, I knew exactly what was coming in the next three paragraphs. This book is a great intro to people who have only seen the movie adaptations of TP plays, but for those familiar with the material, try borrowing it from the library. Incidentally, Tyler Perry's email newsletter states that there is a movie version of 'Why Did I Get Married?' coming out starring Janet Jackson and Malik Yoba, as well as a film version of 'Meet the Browns' (starring Angela Basset and a rumored-to-be Jennifer Hudson), as well as a sequel series of 'Meet the Browns' (a follow-up to 'House of Payne'). TP is a busy guy.
