    I HATED THIS BOOK. I hated everything about this book. I hated the idea of it (rejoining the characters 10yrs later) I hated the choppy story line and how she jumped from one character to the next. Though mostly (and I wouldn’t have even thought this possible) I HATED THE CHARACTERS! What the hell did you do?! James is a lying, con man bigamist….. wait what? Bernadine the super strong woman who took her life back in the 1st novel is playing mammy to her cheating ex’s son and she a junkie?! Ms.

    Crap.

    Pure shit.

    Sorry for the profanity but this is the worst peice of so called “literature” I’ve read in a long time.

    Ok, so let me preface this review I’m going to write (and there will be spoilers). Before reading Getting to Happy I re-read (and even watched the craptastic movie) Waiting to Exhale to refresh myself with the four sassy soul sistahs: Savannah, Bernadine, Robin and Gloria.

    Pure shit.

    Sorry for the profanity but this is the worst peice of so called “literature” I’ve read in a long time.

    Ok, so let me preface this review I’m going to write (and there will be spoilers). Before reading Getting to Happy I re-read (and even watched the craptastic movie) Waiting to Exhale to refresh myself with the four sassy soul sistahs: Savannah, Bernadine, Robin and Gloria.

    Now, when I first read Waiting to Exhale around 15 years ago I loved it. It tapped into the zeitgeist of African American women and it even spoke to me as a young single black gay male looking for love. I thought it was a fantastic novel and McMillan was a fantastic new voice in African American literature (although Mama and Disappearing Acts are much better).

    However, re-reading the novel many years later in anticipation of reading Getting to Happy it didn’t age well. It’s no longer relevant. It’s dated. The writing is amateurish and it’s just plain B-A-D.

    Ok, fast forward to now. I’ve just finished Getting to Happy and sadly it’s even worse than Waiting to Exhale. McMillan is out of touch with today’s zeitgiest. Her writing is trite, amateurish, and irrelevant. The novel is boring and pointless. It’s dificcult to ascertian which character is which (not so much with Waiting to Exhale) and it seems like even McMillan is out of touch with her characters.

    90% of the novel is POINTLESS dialogue. I’m a lover of dialogue but dialogue for the sake of dialogue is lazy story telling and obviously filler. One chapter in particular has the four heroines rehashing on a four way telephone call all of the events that just happened which we already read about.

    Oh, and I hate how characters say shit like: “I”m pregnant”. Then one of the characters responds: “You mean to tell me that you’re standing in front on me telling me you’re pregnant?” Duh. Didn’t she just say that? (oh and that’s not from the novel but there’s many, MANY instances of this in the novel).

    Or dialogue will go like this:

    “I like your hair.”
    “Thanks, girl. My hair dresser said I would look good with red hair.”
    “Well, he’s right.”
    “I know, thanks.”
    “You look fierce.”
    “Do you really think so?”
    “Oh yeah. I wish I could do my hair like yours.”
    Ad nauseaum. Ad infinitum.

    And I hate how McMillan has to constantly make reference of black guy this, white girl that. I get it. You’re a black writer. Anyone looking at your pic on the back of the book will see that too. Do you have to hammer that point home? It begins to come across as a bit racist.

    And don’t get me started on the characters. They’re all in their 50s now but no one has changed for the better.

    Savannah divorces her husband because he’s boring. Ok. Didn’t she spend her time in the last novel hoping to meet someone?

    Gloria is happily married to Marvin until he gets shot in gang fight gunfire. Are there still gang fights with guns going on? It seems very 90s to me.

    Bernadine finds out the good man James she met in Waiting to Exhale is a bigamist. Really? McMillan couldn’t make him a good black man? Did she really have to go down that avenue? And she’s addicted to Xanax. And she’s now really good firends with her ex John. I’m hard pressed to believe that after all of the crap he put her through she would suddenly forgive him of all that and beocome friends with him. However, six years have passed and she’s stil pissed at James. And she doesn’t get mad when she discovers her daughter has been holding on to an apololgy letter from James for 5 years. In fact, no one gets mad at anything that happens to them. Whatever.

    And Robin is addicted to shopping and online dating and then, 15 years later, she runs into Michael again who is STILL single, STILL lusting after her and JUST so happens to have lost tons of weight so now he’s rocket body gorgeous an Robin decides to marry him. WTF?

    This is one of those books that when I finished it I threw it across the room and then, when I got up, I shoved it in my things-to-go-Goodwill bag.

    I’m done with McMillan and if you’re smart you’ll do yourself a favor and skip this too.

    review of another edition

    Shelves:
    african-american

    I have rarely been so disappointed by a novel before. McMillan has taken 4 strong, intelligent, independent women from Waiting to Exhale, and made 1 a drug addict, 1 a pushover mom/desperate single woman, 1 a widow, and 1 a divorcee. All of which wouldn’t be the worst thing in literature, but McMillan has made their strong bonds of friendship minimal when compared to finding a man. When one character is widowed, her friends are more concerned with her weight gain than her mental well-being.

    All

    All that aside, McMillan does strange things with point of view–2 characters tell the story from their first-person POV and 2 tell it from limited 3rd person, which is strange and very confusing initially. Any sort of social commentary, satire, remarks on race and men–all are lost due to her overwriting, over-explaining, and overall clunky style of prose. She believes in the “tell, don’t show” way of writing, which can be a little insulting at times. Furthermore, the novel is set in 2005, so every movie (Crash), event (Katrina, death of Luther Vandross) or cultural reference needed (or not) is included. She’s so insistent on reminding readers way, way too frequently that the book is 15 years later, which wouldn’t be so annoying if I didn’t know she’s a better writer than this book demonstrates. She should have been able to evolve her characters better.

    The messages about race, gender, class, men, and color are lost amid too many discussions about needing a man, weight, and overall childish and immature dialogue. Leave Gloria, Robin, Savannah, and Bernadine as the feisty, strong women from Waiting to Exhale.
