Everyone in the world seemed to have heard about this book and movie, but I hadn't. I picked it up because the plot looked interesting and I like reading books from the male perspective. This book was outstanding. I can't pick a favorite story in here because I enjoyed them all. The plots were tight, the stories read easily, they were believable, and most importantly, the dialogue was fresh and sounded like real people. Not many people can merge all of these characteristics into one, but this lady sure did! (It's even better considering she pinpointed writing from the male perspective). I will be reading the rest of these books and watching the movie.
Hi I was in the book store looking for a book to read and i saw this one.It was only a dollor,i was like this has to be worth the buy. And it was,I read this book in like a day or so but it is also a small book with like around 150 or something pages. but it was a really good book. This book is about 7 men who go through some hard times in there lives and end up on brewster place. Each chapter is a diffrent story. i have not read the women of brewster place yet,but i think each guy in here is related to one of the women in the first book. I give this book 4 stares caues i would recommend it to anyone who likes to read about peoples lives. the reason i did not give it 5 stares is becaues it is not an outstanding book it had its up and downs but its one of those books that should be read by anyone who is looking for a quck , and interesting read. thank you
Men of Brewster Place was a great book. I first read Women of Brewster Place in a collage class and another student gave a report on this book and I just had to read it. The way Naylor talks about how the men also have hardships in their lives beside the women from Brewster.
