Shame On It All (SOIA) introduces us to the wildly eclectic Whitfield sisters: Harmony, the eldest, owner of a temporary agency AND a big secret; Bryce, the middle child, outspoken, boisterous and a LOVER of men; and Lucky, the baby girl of the fam, who is in the midst of medical school AND a controversy.
The reader is immediately thrust (no pun intended) into the sexual escapades of the sisters as they share their Memorial Day exploits with one another over lunch...exploits that will ultimately change each sister's life forever. The novel encompasses all that one would expect to find in that wonderful relationship between sisters -- love, spite, crazy conversations, humor, and enough drama for you AND your mama.
SOIA is THE funniest novel I have ever read. Zane kicks some serious butt in her snappy dialogue and comical exchanges between the characters...and the inclusion of commercials throughout the novel is innovative and perfect for the novel.
SOIA is full of comedy, realism and drama, and is definitely a novel you won't want to put down until you're DONE. Zane's characters are so real, so three-dimensional, I felt as if I was rolling my neck and smacking my lips along with the sistah girls.
On the lighter side, SOIA is packed with crazy sexual exchanges and comedy, but it is firmly grounded with a tight drama full plot line that will toy with your emotions.
Anyone who has read Zane's previous novels will most definitely seek out SOIA...and to all the Zane newbies, this is a great treat to begin with.
For those people out there who don't like erotica or profanity I suggest you don't even think about buying this book cause you will be knocked off your feet...for those that can hang then buy this book because you will not be disappointed.
This book started out quite funny, and was very entertaining at times. However, even though I expected a "can't put down" book, I found myself reading it in spurts. It was hilarious at times, but it could have done without the "commercial breaks" and the characters could have been a little more defined.
"Harmony" was depicted as "strong, dependable, etc", however, her character was lacking emotion at times. And for the "mature, professional, black woman" the character of "Bryce" was trying to be, she was very unprofessional in and out of her work place and left the impressionable stereotype that corporate America gives us as black women. I couldn't related to the character "Lucky" personally, but I do know young girls get caught up in situations they haven't thought through.
Overall, the book was pretty good, and Zane definitely has potential. For the fact that she kept laughing, if nothing else, is enough to make me read more of her books. With her writing flare and 'way with words', once she develops her characters a little more, she will soar. From one sistah to another "Keep up the good work!"
