I add this to my top 10 of 2005 (Books)!!!
Michelle
It was interesting how it portrayed the women and how they handled their relationships compared to the men.

Now don't get me wrong I thought Before I Let Go was good, but you hit the nail on the head with this one.

I just finished reading Darren Coleman's novel "Don't Ever Wonder", and I have to admit that it is a very gripping novel with three fascinating characters. There's Cory, the man in love with two sisters; Nate the "playa", who is dealing with guilt over the death of a close friend and seeks God to find forgiveness and a new way of life; and Brendan, the good guy who always seems to find himself in love with bad girls.

For a person who is looking for an African American novel with drama and plenty of scenes to steam up the reading glasses this might be the one for you, but for someone like myself, who is still trying to find a novel that presents African American males in a positive light and one that deal with African American male/female relationship in a point of view other than who can get someone's bed without damaging emotions or someone's self-respect, this one leaves me wanting, unfortunately like numerous others I have read. This is not an indictment of all African American novelists; I haven't read them all, not to mention other works that Mr. Coleman has written. Yet, as an African American male who is acutely aware of the challenges that we face a African American males, especially in the relationships with the women we love, it doesn't help, even for the sake of drama, to perpetuate the idea that all of us are either "dogs" or we have been hurt by sisters so much that it makes us want to be dogs.

As a Christian, I think Mr. Coleman's book does do us a service; it makes us aware of the fact that when a person does decide to make a committent to Christ, we who are established in the faith should try to nurture those who are new in their experience.

Mr. Coleman personifies clarity in his characters. He uses deep complex character with everyday people characteristics that appeal to anyone. While reading this book I went through a varied range of emotions, I laughed, cried, actualized and I even got angry, but I NEVER GOT BORED. The characters had dimensions and depths that kept me reading page after page. There were unexpected twists and turns around every corner, I could visualize everything as the plot thickened. This dynamic sequel to Before I Let Go was well worth the wait. It was hot , steamy, hilarious and beautifully written,it is always refreshing to see a man show some sensitivity in his work, women all over the globe can appreciate the realism and adversitiy that these characters showed with there issues. Thank You Mr. Coleman,I LOVED IT.

I'm stunned by the number of 5* reviews this book received. If you're a fan of stories with a lack of characterization and no defined purpose or priorities...this one is for you!

Don't Ever Wonder is worse than Before I Let Go. Cory and Brendan's only focus was bedding as many women as possible with no regard for anything or anyone. I grew bored reading about the multiple women walking in and out of their lives and their juvenile masses of uncertainty. It was hard to keep track of the women in this story. Even Nate who was suddenly holy couldn't keep his libido under control or get his life on track. And to finally be told what Nate's profession was after any discussion of it had been strangely avoided fell out of place in the book, in my opinion. It wasn't a good fit. The author's feeble attempts at concrete story development were over-shadowed by ridiculous and unbelievable sub-plots. This book would be great if it wasn't for the fact that I've read so many other books of this genre that are much better and actually contain dramatic elements to keep the reader hooked.

I have to ask, did Darren Coleman really write Do or Die? That book was so fascinating. It's unbelievable that the same person could author this nonsense as well.

Format: Paperback
Darren Coleman has done it again...he's delivered yet another drama filled novel from beginning to end! If you like Carl Weber and Dwayne S. Joseph then you better add Darren Coleman to your list of favorites.

"Don't Ever Wonder" picks up where "Before I Let Go Left Off" and re-introduces us to the lives of the main characters/friends Nate (a reformed ladies man), Cory (torn between 2 sisters) and Brendan (a good guy who falls for the wrong woman). This time around Nate has turned his life around, Cory is trying to find the right path regarding his lovelife and Brendan is learning you can't change the spots on his "leopard" of a girlfriend.

The story brings the fellas back to town (Washington, DC/PG County) and this is where the drama really begins. Without giving the whole story away - there's a crooked pastor involved, tire slashings, some baby momma drama, and a near fatal accident.

Kudos to Darren for producing yet another drama filled tale that delivers a powerful lesson in love, life and taking responsibility for your actions.

Something tells me there will be a sequel to this sequel - at least I hope so!!

Don't Ever Wonder and it was a page-turner for real! Now don't get me wrong I thought Before I Let Go was good, but you hit the nail on the head with this one.

Now, each time I read I try to take something from every book. I believe that Don't Ever Wonder reinforces the fact that we all fall short of the glory, but it's not the fall that we should focus on, its the getting up from the fall and making the nessecary changes that matter the most so we either a) don't fall again or b) if we do fall, at least we have some sort of a foundation to start over on.
