This review is from: Ma, I'm Gettin Meself a New Mammy (Paperback)
I loved Martha's first book, it was heart wrenching stuff, and couldn't wait for the next installment. I am sure that the next book was going to be Ma I'm Locked up in the Madhouse, but then I guess due to the success of the first book the publishers probably rushed her into doing Ma I'm gettin meself a new mammy. Sadly the book is very disappointing! I found myself scanning over some pages as there was no substance in them, little events that could be told in a paragraph seemed to be stretched to the limit and written over several pages, and told in major detail with lots of dialogue that was totally unnecessary, and even events that Martha imagined happened were also told in great detail. Like other readers, I was hoping for more on Martha family, but was disappointed there too. I feel the whole book could have been squeezed into one chapter and put into the next book Ma I'm Locked up in the Madhouse.
