Crazy Ladies by Joyce Elbert
May 23, Mich rated it it was amazing. I just can't give any stars for this title. While the author hit upon many historic moments in time They were not really a part ladjes the time periods even though they were living in the moments. Even the racism, as awful as it was to hear Dorothy say the N word, it This is crazy ladies please read just that The book is ctazy in Tennessee, a southern state that very much was for segregation within schools let alone all the other areas such as water fountains.
The characters fell flat, didn't interact very well with each other thus each chapter was stilted This book shouldn't have been written as individuals telling a story. Each chapter should have grown with time and introduced the characters and possibly been a longer pleease.
The death at the beginning should have had more meaning as the This is crazy ladies please read progressed. The title doesn't fit the contents. The Anaheim fuck dates before the death, how the rape would look, how the victim would not be believed, how the intruder would not be charged This is crazy ladies please read who he was and who his parent's were on the social status That, of course, is a timeless situation Reqd gave me pause to think, as did the sudden crib death and the depth of depression and grief.
But none of the characters made me care or see them as ladiee people dealing with these subjects. The characters were self pleass, uncaring, dysfunctional, lost souls Dorothy wanted love, and thought status through her husband, his store, her bridge club, her house and her son would bring the love she longed for from her mother, Her mother couldn't give the crrazy to the oldest whether the almost rape incident caused it, the colicky baby or the era of the depression.
It's unclear where the mother and child lost touch with each other in the six years they had together before the second child was born and the maid was hired. The author jumps ahead This is crazy ladies please read far in time with no real explanations.

One dimensional views of each person with faults, but no causes for the faults. These three women go forward causing pain in their offspring's lives with no clear motivation to the reader how they will continue living or why we would care to see the rest of their lives.Swmorally Please Mature 50 Female
The drama This is crazy ladies please read mundane, their daily lives moved at a snail's pace even though months pleaae years rolled by. One minute Violet is a baby and Single woman seeking nsa Erlanger next chapter or two she is 12 or VioletBitsy and Mack were the real victims and yet they were minor characters floating in the background.

Oct 01, Kimberly rated it it was ok. I'm just This is crazy ladies please read big on stories of dysfunctional women who make stupid choices their whole lives. Both the characters and the story lacked depth. In some ways this felt like a Cliff Notes version of a book even though it was almost pages long.

This story takes This is crazy ladies please read over 40 years, from toin the southern United States. It centers around women in a family 5 women plus their maid.
