"..Never employ minorities, it makes you look racist. Even though we're better than all those african americans, hispanics, iranians..and God knows what other riff raff the Democrats are letting into this country....even though Mexicans are the BEST at landscaping"
From a black man in the book who is apparently stuck in slavery times in 2006:
"Bo knows a story. 'Bout how a turtle be beating a rabbit in a race. The rabbit he be fast, the turtle, he be slow. But de bunny done take itself a nap and de turtle crawled on right by him while he be snoozin'....Bo likes dat dere story"
There is no excuse for that and this book is not worth the read.
Not only is The Perils Of Sisterhood not funny, it borders on offensive with over the top stereotypes of gays, blacks, and <gasp> unattractive people. Madrid's gay friends shriek, giggle and sashay their way through every scene they're in, every black character talks like an episode of Amos 'n Andy, and the heavyset woman who is looking for love is loud, crass, and uneducated. I almost put the book down in disgust more than once without finishing it. I should have, since it never did redeem itself. Don't waste your time.
If you're fascinated by trendy parties and the misdeeds of spoiled celebrities, you'll probably get a kick out of this book. IMO, it was an interesting world to visit, even if I wouldn't want to live there. (No matter how big my annual check was!)
While the sisters started and stayed rather unlikeable quite far into the book, by the end they showed definite signs of becoming human. I thought Gamma Angel was great, though I did wonder what took her so long to put her foot (and pen) down.
At least in fiction, there's hope that ANYONE can turn her life around!
the book was too talky, using long boring conversations to move the story along. i'm not a writer, so i have no idea how it should have been done, but this is obviously how NOT to do it.
After some funny setbacks London and Maddy decide to do something different. Will it work out? Will they be better people? Read The Perils of Sisterhood
