Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is another GREAT McMillan masterpiece. There is no writer out there who can do dialogue and a sense of place better than this queen of writing. She is only matched by Grisham in her ability to draw a character so well that you can actually see them as you read. This book is told in alternate points of view by the characters and advances in time. The different points of view is a great driver of the story. I have met all of theses characters in my life, and many of the readers will relate as well. This is not "Black" book, simply a great book that has Black and White characters.
It is evident that Ms. McMillan's writing has remained standard in its depth. Her voice is as fresh as it was with "Waiting to Exhale" 20+ years ago. I was sad to see the book end, and I am hungry for the next. Please don't make us wait so long, Terry!
