4.0 out of 5 stars You Have Not Read Until You Read ZANE!!, Aug. 21 2003
What can I say ZANE is by far one of the best. No matter what she writes she knows how to intertwine those words and BAMMMM you have an excellent novel. This book is about Zoe who is addicted to sex and just like a drug addict she can not stop until she receives treatment. But read this book as Zoe takes you on a ride that you will never believe.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, Aug. 21 2003
This was a good story about Winter Santiaga and her family and their struggles and tribulations. But there was so much hype surrounding this book I expected more. Still a good read for new readers breaking into this world of Afican-American fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Ghetto Love Story, Aug. 21 2003
This was an excellent portray of the drug game. If you were born in the "ghetto" you know what I mean. If you were not you will still be able to relate. This is a real account of what some people have to do to live. It also shows that no matter how one grows up that same person still has feelings and is not a monster contrary to what modern society believes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, Aug. 21 2003
I read this book after reading The Other Woman By Eric Jerome Dickey. So I wasn't expecting anything great after that excellent read. But I was so WRONG this was a good book about family relationships and true friendships. The ending will mess with your brain something that was really not expected at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Aug. 19 2003
This review is from: Other Woman A Novel (Hardcover)
This book was a fastpaced pageturner. I could not put this book down my best friends were getting upset with me because I would not talk to them. I kept saying five more minutes.This book is well worth your money because it can be read over and over again. Imagine thinking all is well with your significant other until someone calls you on the phone telling you otherwise. That phone call starts the ball spiraling down a big hill for Freckles. The rest of the story you will have to buy the book to find out. This book had my mouth hanging open literally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mystery!!!!!!!, Aug. 6 2003
This book has lots of twists and turns very well written. It also takes a look at sports stars and how they abuse groupies.This book also brings to light autism and its effects on caregivers. All of this while someone has been killed and people are frantically trying to find out who the murderer is hoping it is not someone they are related to. WOW!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Talk About Awareness, July 18 2003
This book opens your eyes again about HIV/AIDS. This disease is not gone but is forgotten by many. This book made the characters so real to me that I actually wept. Very moving story. My best friend is from Jamaica and although Adrian is Guyanese some of his family lifestyle was almost identical to her family. These characters will stay with me for awhile. I also think that they should let high school read this for extra credit. The story is so real that maybe when they are put in a precarious situation they will think about Adrian,Genifer and Sandy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Well Written, July 18 2003
This was a fast paced read. How many of you could raise your husband's infant after his death as well as the death of his mistress. Not only raise the child but then to deal with all of the secrets that come out. This was a very realistic and honest read. Pick this one up well worth the money.

When All Else Fails, We Cry
When All Else Fails, We Cry
by Nikiel N. Hannah
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 19.56

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story But Not Well Organized, July 18 2003
This was an excellent plot but at times I didn't know which story line I was following. This should and would have been a six star read if Nikiel had broken up the story. He should have had a chapter on Troy,Durham,Theo and Derrick separately. This would have caused less confusion. But just when you think you are to confused Nikiel comes out with some story lines that leave your mouth hanging open.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Cover But The Story Went Downhill, July 8 2003
This book took me three weeks to read. I usually read two to three books a week.The story starts off slow then picks up and then takes another dive. The dives take a lot away from the story. At one point in this love story she has Darnell say to Shemone do you want my arm to fall off in reference to Billy Dee Williams. But then the writer states Billy Dee said this in Mahogany.WRONG,WRONG,WRONG. Billy Dee said that line in Lady Sings The Blues. Then she has a character who gets shot and is practically brain dead and she allows him to live which was not at all realistic with the story line. Although this is fiction reading is about making it realistic. And last but not least Shemone and Darnell get married and even though it was only close friends and family Darnell's best friend who was one of the main character's throughout the book was not even at the wedding. This was definitely a sad,sad story.
