This is not "a novel". This is porn. Furthermore, why is it specifically geared toward black people? Why this, and not something with more substance? Why not an ACTUAL novel that doesn't have lines like, "Oh, you cussin' at me and you got some bitch on the phone? You tryna flex for a bitch?" (chapter 15, p. 133) No. See, first of all, "tryna" is not a word. It never has been, and it never will. Second, the "author" practically falls all over herself thanking "my Father and Savior, Jesus Christ" and then every other page contains the word "fuck" or some variation, not to mention incredibly graphic sex. Not that there's anything wrong with graphic sex, but for god's sake have some integrity and DON'T CALL IT A NOVEL. A novel has these qualities: a beginning, a middle, and an end. A novel has a little something called substance - see, substance is that stuff that drives the plot, that keeps the reader interested after their orgasm has subsided. A plot, if you don't already know, is typically the focal point of a novel, and this "novel" barely has a plot. All this, and her parents read this crap and support her writing?!
All I have to say is this: if you want to read a novel, then by all means, go for it. If you want to read porn, then read this. Though I'm not sure why you'd waste your time, as it's free online, and this book costs $14.00. It is INSULTING to call this travesty a novel. Furthermore, it is degrading to black people. Do not, for god's sake, sit on a bus in public and read this drivel like you're thumbing through Harry Potter. It is porn. It is not meant to be read in public, at the laundromat (where I work, and where I found it, lying by the kids' section, no less), on the bus, or anywhere other than your own home. There is nothing this "novel" can contribute to your well being, self improvement, or overall situation.
On top of that, the gripping question is, "is her marriage worth saving?" HELL NO. Ladies, if your "man" puts you in any spot but first place, if he sleeps around on you, talks down to you, hits you, hurts your feelings on purpose, does *any* of the bullshit Kenyatta does in this book, then I have news for you: number one, he is not a man. Number two, if you stay with him, after knowing all this about him, you are not a woman - you are a fool. DO NOT EVER LET A MAN TREAT YOU LIKE THIS. I don't care who you are. Real men do not screw around on their wives, and women with a half a brain in their skulls do not stay with men who do. If Monday is your role model, you are an ass, and that's all there is to it. The characters are amoral, corrupt, disgusting people, and they do not deserve your respect.
