I very much enjoyed the Jamaican setting and colorful proverbs sprinkled throughout this story. My only criticism is that the struggle part of the book went on a bit long, and the reward for getting to the end was too brief. Too many surprise twists were delivered too quickly compared to the long buildup. Having said that, the book still delivers on a lot of levels. It's a book that showcases the strength of friendship despite personal imperfections, and that's a theme that everyone can relate to.
This was an okay read for me. I really don't enjoy everyone cheating on everyone (especially husband and wife). However, I do understand that is part of reality. The characters were definitely believeable, but I just could not relate to them. The ladies brought the drama on themselves and their family, whom they claim to love, and wondered why this was happening to them, especially Dionne. I really felt bad for Justine but just because your husband is not communicating with you does not give you the permission to have an affair. The very realistic part of the story was the husband and Kyra's boyfriend their sleeping together and unprotected sex they were having. That really brought awareness to HIV/AIDS, and how lucky they both were not to have been infected since Kyra's ex-boyfriend had it. I was really disppointed when Justine kept her son hidden from his father, I guess I will have to read that in the next book!
"Distraction" is a book that follows the lives of three very interesting but destructive women. Their names are Kyra, Justine, and Dionne. And when I say "destructive" what I mean is this: they are liars, cheats, and victims who make choices that are a little difficult to get through without squirming. I had an impulse to invite them into a room, sit them down, and then stand before them on a soap box to make them accountable for all the things that they are doing while others chanted "preach on brotha!" in the background.
Kyra has trouble with an abusive man named Warren. He's a deadbeat that insists on sucking her dry of all monetary resources, on basically raping her, of trying to sabotage everything in her life, and on top of all that, he's a criminal. He's a pretty dispicable character in just having those qualities.Read more ›
These are not "nice" women, these are INTERESTING women, women with complicated lives and children (yes, women can have children AND an interesting life!) and I became fully wrapped up in these women and their stories. Campbell does a great job of including Jamaican proverbs, meals, and other touches that give a taste of the island culture. Yet the friendship dynamic among women seems universal.

First off, the book dragged on too long and focused too much only Justine instead of the "trio". Nevertheless, it was a good book.Published 12 months ago by NiNi
