Changing Faces

Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: February 2006

Duration: 5 hours 33 minutes

Summary:

Meet Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse, three women who have been best friends since high school.

Whitney is a plus-size woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who will stay put.

Taylor is in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who's allergic to commitment.

Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she really wants -- or needs.

Then suddenly, Charisse spins out of control. Her husband threatens to go public with a secret Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, especially from her interfering mother. Desperate, she decides that only a very risky scheme will save her.

One constant for these women has been the support they've offered one another. But this time, how far can friendship go?

In this witty, rollicking, deeply poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels bestsellers.

    Although this book wasn't well written, the simple langaue didn't take away from the plot too much. I did enjoy the story. The ending fell a little flat, but I assume that I must have missed some parts because it was abridged. I have a long commute and this book really kept me very entertained. So entertained that sometimes I didn't want to get out of my car. I recommend this book the anyone who wants to listen to a light, entertaining story.

    I once rented this book from my local library and a co-worker started listening to it before me because I was finishing up on another book. The co-worker stated she didn't like it and when it came time to turn it back in I didn't even try to renew it because I assumed it wasn't good. Well when I joined this book club I put it on my list and I couldn't have been more wrong. I loved this book. I wish it was the unabridged version compared to the abridged but I really got into the book and the characters and I think that everyone woman can relate to at least one of the characters if not more. I loved this book and I have read other books by this auther and enjoyed them so I don't know why I didn't at least give this one a try. But the most important thing is that I finally got to hear it and loved and tell you about it!!!!

    This was my first time listening to a book and this selection was very enjoyable. I found myself sitting in the car just to finish it. I loaned it to a couple of friends and they enjoyed it also. The ending was a complete surprise but listening took less time than reading. I want more choices from this author!!!!

    I really tried to like this book. I did root for Whitney, but that was becaue the other two women were horrible. They were mean and heartless. Had I had something else to listen to I would have!
