    Not one of her best

    I've read most of Ms. McMillan's books and after getting used to her prose, just flew through them. This one felt like I was climbing up a mountain. The ending was not satisfying at all.

    horrible, horrible, horrible...

    i expected so much from this book being that mcmillan is a well known author and i was recommended this novel by a school teacher... the plot was good but she could've done way more with the story line like allow marilyn to have an affair with her ex teach her immature no good husband a lesson... marilyn had a very boring life and i hope when i reach her age i've accomplished more and am satisfied with my life more than anything... it took me a month to finish this as simple as it was and when i was done it left a sour taste in mouth for ever reading any of her novels again... seems like she lost her touch... this better not ever end up in the movies...

    The world has changed... Can we change with it?

    This story was flat & it became too much of the same old story line ... woman bored with life & husband troubles. C'mon where's the creativity? I was expecting something with a little substance, perhaps some mystery, or just some food-for-thought, that would provide me with a lesson in life. I thought this book would keep me reading & wanting more. We've all read these type of stories and it's quite boring when you know the ending before you get there.

    Boring and Sedate

    There was no rising action or climactic moments in this book. It was so sedate and conversational that I was thoroughly bored. I did finish it because I felt that something extraordinary would happen, however, nothing ever did. This book droned on and on. The conversations were so boring, the characters are boring. The best storyline was with Arthurine and Prezelle, and they are senior citizens. Also, Joy would've made an awesome main character. I don't get the title. I don't see 'what' interrupted 'everything'. There was nothing to interrupt. Sorry, Terri. This one really reeks.

    I was not impressed

    The most thrilling part of this book was knowing I didn't purchase it! Page after page of dribble is the best I can explain. I was so determined to finish in hopes that at some point things would errupt, explode, peak or climax, but nothing. I think I've read my last TerryMac for quite sometime. Sorry 'T,' this was not the one.

    This one didn't hit the spot.

    Terri is one of my favorite authors and I have read each and every one of her novels. However, this one didn't do it for me. I was hoping it would improve as I went along but it just didn't. However, I will always be one of her faithful supporter so I am waiting for her next one.

    I wish I could get a refund

    I bought this book upon its release on the sheer knowledge that it was a Terry McMillan book. I have been reading her books long before Waiting to Exhale was even a whisper among movie goers and I have loved her books. I am SHOCKED and very disappointed at how poor this book is written! The main character Marilyn comes off as a robot, you get no real feeling as to who she is, what's she's about. The dialogue is horrible and totally unimaginable in some instances. A husband and wife confronting each other on some of the issues in the book would NOT go down so calm and politely with such stiff grammar as it does in this book. When I read a novel, it usually plays as a movie as I read it. I can imagine the charcters and see them, hear them. I had a hard time doing that with most of the characters in this book. I was very disappointed.

    MAYBE IT'S ME....

    I ran to the store to purchase this book only to be disappointed. Ms. McMillan dropped the ball on this one - big time! She owes me $17.29.
