5.0 out of 5 stars The book was the bomb and the movie was Hiroshima., November 11, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: How Stella Got Her Groove Back (Audio Cassette)
I loved Stella's groovy book. It was a little wordy but I most definitely got the point. Terry Mcmillian explained on -Tavis Smiley- night show that the book was wordy on purpose, she wanted us to feel as though we were in Stella's shoes (no, that is not a direct quote, I'm typing from memory if that's okay). When were talking to our girlfriends or homies, we hardly if ever pause to start a new paragraph. I do agree with another "Roger and Ebert" reviewer, Stella's sister did die too quick. The movie at least dwelled on her character a little more to tell us what she was about. "Shakespere" with his fine self portrayed his character very well, as indeed Stella's baby boy. Angela Bassett is a wonderful actress. When Stella was written I think Terry had Angela in mind with Taye Diggs not to far behind. Greatttt job Angela, Taye, Whoopi and all supporting actors and actresses.
