So this is the sequel to Waiting to Exhale and I was so excited to relive the characters that came to typify womanhood in the 90’s (Bernie, Robin, Gloria, Savannah). However, I was thoroughly disappointed; it was just too sad and considering that they faced such tragedy in Waiting to Exhale, I was hoping that just like the title of the book, they would actually be happy. Quite on the contrary, their lives were so miserable that it just seemed too far-fetched. I would recommend it for a quick read on holiday for example but not if you want to be entertained. Not my best read of 2013 in the slightest…my next book is Outliers…will keep you posted!
