Although I have not yet seen the movie, the novel, Sparkle, has made me want to. I love the story, characters, and back-and-forth dialogue. Millner did a great job describing the events of the book; it was easy to imagine the scenes taking place. I loved the humor and speech patterns of the characters. Everyone was quick-witted and funny. If the book was this good, the movie and music must be fantastic. Three sisters begin singing together and after winning a contest in 1960s Detroit, their talent quickly takes over the city. Romance, abuse, and drugs are the problems that threaten their rise to the top. Sister becomes engaged to an abusive man and takes up cocaine, Sparkle has to move past her nerves and embrace her talent, and Delores merely wants to help her sisters’ rise to the top and earn enough money to fund her education. All this drama takes place in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. Millner’s novel is excellent and anyone would enjoy reading it. The book is fast-paced and never lost my attention. I give this novel four out of five stars.

I liked the sample but its not that great to buy the whole book. Its just a waste of money for me. Just in my opinion.

The book is a great quick read and like all books it had more depth then the movie and some really great moments that the film (allthough still being great) lacked. Overall though the book it self is good and my main complaint would be to short.

Even though I've seen the original movie a dozen or more times, it was nice to read the book and imagine the new cast. Looking forward to seeing the movie.
