Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-07-01)

Men let you down, sometimes by accident but more often not, so don't rely on them for happiness. That's the message of this sequel to the 1992 blockbuster Waiting To Exhale, which picks up the story of four smart, capable, black women-Savannah, Bernadine, Robin, and Gloria-15 years later. Now in their late forties and early fifties, the girlfriends have changes thrust upon them at a time in their lives when they had expected to be settled down with decent men, careers, and families-and, especially, no more nasty surprises or shocking revelations around the corner.

The four friends support one another no matter what, offering encouragement and truth telling as needed. As in its predecessor, the bantering, snide remarks, earthy language, and sharp-tongued commentary of the women carry this book. Male characters get short shrift, but who cares.

VERDICT Fans of Waiting To Exhale, many now middle-aged themselves, will want to cheer on the women in this sequel.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Total Disappointment I eagerly waited over 15 years for this sequel to the very Awesome Waiting To Exhale, and boy was I t-totally disappointed with this book. I hear there's a move in the making, and I pray that the movie is much better than the book. I was terribly disappointed with the Waiting to Exhale movie. I hope this isn't the case with this movie. I'm still a huge Terry McMillian fan & I'd also suggest you read Roslyn McMillian's books Terry's younger sister. Her books are really good too. 12/20/2013
