Format: Paperback
Six of One is superior to Loose Lips. I'd recommend (re-)reading that instead. The characters are more fully drawn, the wit is sharper, and the story is just plain better.

If you enjoy the power of sisterhood, the complexity of women and lots of silly Southern humor, this is the book for you. A downright darn good read (which I did in one day!) with enough silliness and fun to want more. The characters are engaging, irresponsible, rude, brazen, and very likeable. I could read a Loose Lips II just to find out what happened 10 years later. Rita Mae, you are my hero.

Format: Paperback
Rita Mae Brown's unforgettable cast of characters, introduced in Six of One, are brought back to life in her latest novel, Loose Lips. As fans of Juts, Wheezie, and the incomparable Celeste Chalfonte can attest, tales of love and loss, tossed in with unexpected twists and turns, are bountiful anytime this gang gets together.
Six of One introduced Julia and Louise Hunsenmeir, fondly known as Juts and Wheezie, an indomitable pair of quarreling sisters born around the turn-of-the-century in Runnymede, Maryland. The ensemble cast featured Cora, their strong and caring single mother, housekeeper of Celeste; the formidable Celeste Chalfonte, a lesbian without apology, and her lover, the elegantly beautiful Ramelle Bowman; Fairy Thatcher and Fannie Jump Creighton, ever-scheming schoolchums of Celeste; and in later chapters, Chessie and Pearlie, long-suffering husbands of Juts and Wheezie. Spanning almost a century, we watch the madcap life of Juts and Wheezie take them from small tots following their mother around in Celeste's Georgian mansion to the birth of their own children and the mayhem that follows, to Juts and Wheezie as old cronies, still tangling in their 80's.
Continuing the story in Bingo, Brown brings Runnymede back to life with Juts' daughter, Nicole, better known as Nickel. The cast, while still containing Juts and Wheezie as central figures, leaves a bit to be desired when compared to Six of One, and the storyline dwells a bit too much on newer characters who aren't quite as developed. Bingo is a an enjoyable read, but never catches fire like Six of One.
Enter Loose Lips.
In Brown's latest, the storyline picks up in 1941. Juts and Wheezie have entered adulthood, matrimony and maturity - or what resembles maturity for the Hunsenmeir sisters.

Format: Paperback
Ahh, small town life! Stradling the Mason-Dixon line, Runnymeade makes it's own rules which suits the main characters perfectly. Lots of colorful characters involved in love, hate, gossip, and typical everyday life. The pages fly by as you get to know everyone and what makes them tick. I love Ms. Brown's style; lots of details that make you want to know "then what happens?", but without being boring or slow moving. I love all three books on those crazy sisters, Juts and Louise! Actually, I think they'd make an awesome tv series or movie, but sometimes things are better left to the imagination. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Six Of One or Bingo, please do so immediately!

Format: Paperback
The third installment in Brown's Runnymeade series is the best written and most thoughtful yet. The human-ness of her characters, their trials and their steadfast attachment to the joy of life is a silken thread through this masterful sequel to "Six of One" and "Bingo." Rather than seeking easy, obvious answers, Brown explores the actions dictated by human nature and strong personalities. Juts and Wheezie are more alive than ever, and the town more deeply defined in its uniqueness.
I heartily recommend this book, and the series. The stories are a wonderful read, like slipping into your most comfy pajamas and having a cup of real hot chocolate in front of the fire on a chilly winter's night. A joyful mixture that will make you laugh, cry and maybe even rage a bit, but will ultimately reaffirm your belief in the strength of the human spirit to enjoy the precious days of our lives.

Format: Paperback
Clearly this novel was a long time coming from Rita Mae and I admit some disappointment in only that I had read this book first before undertaking the rest of the series [Six of One and Bingo]. However, as this third book in the series, which should really be called the first, wasn't published until now. I can only give the advice to new Rita fans to read this first if you have not yet read the other two. Loose Lips is still, however, an important installment in the series further exploring the Hunsenmeier Sisters Louise and "Juts" and their very funny adventures in sibling rivalry. Still, I found the read enjoyable particularly the second half and I tolerated the first half pleasantly revisiting in depth the early stories of these two sisters as well as the interesting lives of Runnymeade, MD residents.
It is important to note that in reading this late edition brings enjoyment in understanding the journey Rita has taken as an author. It makes much sense to me that she would revisit this story line and tell us more stories about a period of time in the Hunsenmeier relationship that was lacking a bit. I applaud Rita's talent and her courage to take us back a bit further in a hindsighted tale that still brings chuckles and laughter to the reader.
You'll like this book, but you'll like it better if you have not read the other two installments in the series.
