Mom & Me & Mom is a grand and beautifully written book. Maya Angelou is a truly gifted writer and her story is a heartfelt and honest one.

Mom is Magnetic I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. How have I gone through my entire life without having read Maya Angelou yet?! I can’t believe that I have been missing out on such greatness all of this time and no one saw fit to tell me this (other than Oprah, that is). But now that I’ve read her (thanks to NetGalley, who gave it to me for free in exchange for an honest review), I can say with absolute certainty that I am going to read all of the books in her autobiographical series. I’m not sure if this one is part of her series or not, but it’s a memoir that chronicles Maya’s relationship with her mother. Abandoned as young children by their unprepared mother, Vivian Baxter, Maya and her brother lived for a decade with their grandmother. When they became and age where being a black man in the south could be problematic, Maya and Bailey moved to California to live with the mother who had abandoned them. The book highlights the struggles between Maya and her mother, and, ultimately, their mutual understanding, respect, and love for each other. Reading about Maya Angelou’s mother leaves the reader little doubt that Maya would grow up to be such a powerful and influential figure. Her mother was strong, willful, and read to protect herself and her family at any cost.  She taught Maya that a reputation is the most important thing a person has going for them, and to make sure that if you, “say it in the closet.. be prepared to say it on the city hall steps.” This short and powerful book is a great read, especially for mothers and daughters. I don’t think I can give this book the justice it deserves, so I will quote Maya in her description of her mother’s influence on her and hope the enormity of the words is enough to make you run out and pick up a copy: “My mother’s gifts of courage to me were both large and small. The latter are woven so subtly into the fabric of my psyche that I can hardly distinguish where she stops and I begin.”

Maya Angelou is such an incredibly gifted writer. Her story sings of honesty and heartfelt emotion. I highly recommend this book.

I love the writing of Maya Angelou. Her command of words is awe inspiring. This book is a bit of a departure from what Maya Angelou is most well known for, but the story flows fluently and effectively.

This was a simple story of growing up and acceptance. The book lacked details but was told from the heart.

This is an easy read. As usual, with Maya Angelou, it does good for the soul. It also reveals a few more painful secrets about her life. It is a wonder she survived. Read the book and give yourself a potent reminder to go hug and kiss all those motherly women in your world.

Anyone who has read Maya Angelou's wonderful Why the Caged Bird Sings comes to this book with high expectations. You will be sorely disappointed. One is left wondering why Ms. Angelou bothered to write this book in which she either gives a gloss to some hard facts and people or simply chooses to leave much out and the reader scratching his or her head. It seems that the praise heaped on this book is simply fond memories of her past work and a reluctance to criticise someone's work who has become such a well-known and popular figure.

I saw this author on a Sunday Morning New show interview and it struck my interest. It didn't disappoint me at all. This is a factual story about this woman's life who grew up in not the best of circumstances and shows how she loved her mom inspite of how her mom didn't give her the best childhood experience but had a loving grandmother. The maturity of this little girl allowed her to handle every situation she encountered and built on it to become the strong, highly educated woman she is today. Anyone who feels sorry for themselves and feels they didn't get a fair shake....should read this book and see how you can create one's own successes. There is no word for Maya Angelou except "amazing". The world could use more of her.

I got this book for my mom for Mother's Day & she just started it, but so far she says she really loves it. I intend on borrowing it when she finishes it.

I purchased this book for my Nook and could not put it down. It was once again an excellent book from Maya Angelou.
