    a great read

    I think Naylor is one of America's most under-rated writers. This story captures a culture unknown to most of us but the story draws us in and involves us almost immediately. It has a love story, a coming of age story, magic realism, and family and community struggles. It asks you to think about what is important, even as you laugh out loud at the silly things we do. I frequently share this book with reading groups and it is always a favorite.

    Great Book!

    I read this book for a women's fiction class and I loved it. The relationship between George and Cocoa and the mystical forces kept me interested the whole way through the novel because i wanted to know what was going to happen next. There are some very wierd occurences, but they make the book more interesting....and they kept me thinking about what happened long after I had finished reading it.

    My All-Time Favorite!

    I've read a lot of books by the current crop of black authors but nothing has touched me and made me fall totally in love with a book like Mama Day. This book was brilliant and I couldn't put it down until it was over. A good book is one of those books that you're actually sad when it's over. That was Mama Day for me. I have not read a book that comes close to it yet and I probably never will. If you have to read this book for school or a book club, I hope you enjoy it. If you want a book that is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, this book is a MUST READ!

    This book is full of magic realism and supernatural events.

    This book is great. It took a while to read, but it is good, and I would recommend that anyone to read it.
