Product Description

Review

"Winter is nasty, spoiled, and almost unbelievably libidinous, and it's ample evidence of the author's talent that she is also deeply sympathetic."

--"The New Yorker"

I picked up this book at a Hair and Beauty Show in London and had never read one of her titles before. When I finished it I went straight on the internet frantically searching for more of her fiction titles. My 3 sisters and my cousin also couldn't put the book down. It was a masterpiece. Realistic, sad, funny, "street" & oh so real. I laughed with Winter, I cried with Winter, I boosted with Winter, but most of all I wanted to hunt out Sister Souljah and beg - even pay her! to get more material out there. When you finally manage to put this book down you will find yourself oh so vexed that you've come to the end! 5 stars just doesn't even do her justice!

I merely bought this book after recommendation from the site - living in the UK I had never heard of Sister Souljah but boy do I know about her talents now! I finished the book in 2 days and everything else suffered - work, friends, love life!
The book was superbly written and true to life - it was written so well it was like watching a film and seeing the lives of actors rather than reading a book!
Winter was a girl you wanted to hit, scream at, love and give a hug all at once, and reiterated the point that money really doesnt buy you happiness!
This is a recommended MUST READ, and no other book I've read yet has compared to this work of art!

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would and I think this is the longest it has taken to read a book in recent memory. I normally like to read a bit every day but with this the pull of the book just wasn't there. I just kept finding the whole book very annoying and it just didn't do anything for me personally. I decided to pick it up again last night and get through it before I forgot what was happening with the plot etc and thankfully, even though it is over 300 pages long, the last 50 or so are an analysis of the book and a Q&A session by Sister Souljah.

There are a few reasons I didn't like the book. Firstly, I didn't really like any of the characters except for Midnight and I did feel pity for Winter's mother. I found the character Winter OTT and everything about her just annoyed me. I couldn't relate to or understand her and I found the dialogue hard work to be honest. The storyline was okay and I guess it was eye-opening to see how you never know what's around the corner and a family can be torn apart and lives destroyed in the blink of an eye.

Anyway, for me what killed the book was I couldn't help but feel that it was written purely for Sister Souljah to promote herself because to me half the book was about her and I didn't really like the fact she was writing a story about herself and making out like she was so perfect. I don't know anything about her or her status but I found it rather tacky and it grated on me the whole book. The plot would be going on nicely and all of a sudden it was rudely interrupted by a mention of her on the radio, the work she does, speeches thrown in etc and that's just in the plot, in situations she wasn't even present. Very annoying! Then a fairly big section of the book is almost promoting her and her activities/work.

After being told I need to read this book i was left a little dissapointed. When the story wasnt on Sister Souljah it was really gripping I just didnt get where her carachter played a part in Witner's story. Overall though a good book.

Worth the read will deffo be buying A Deeper Love Inside :-)

This book is awesome. If you've read Fly Girl, it's like Fly Girl x10! The book is gripping from start to finish. And the end of every chapter leaves you with a small cliff hanger, which will tempt you to read on. I don't read much but finished this book in 2 days! It was worth going to bed at 4.40am because I was hooked. Definitely a book you should purchase!

Her Dad is the biggest drug lord in Brooklyn. They are the most respected family.....who have it all.. until on Winters 16th birthday her dad announces that the family will be moving away from the ghetto... which causes her life and family to fall apart. the book is Great you'll find yourself wishing that you were Winter getting all them presents. and men... until her luck changes dramatically...

I received this book this morning and i've spent all day reading, and i'm very upset that it's finished. This book sucked me in...I really didn't like the character Winter and I kept willing for her to change, but she never turned over a new leaf. This book had me so engrossed, this has not happened for such a long time. All I know now is that I want to read the rest of Sister Souljah's book because the way she describes things makes me see them through the pages. Excellent, excellent, excellent.
