The #1 New York Times bestselling author of How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Waiting To Exhale is back with the inspiring story of a woman who shakes things up in her life to find greater meaning

In I Almost Forgot About You, Dr. Georgia Young's wonderful life--great friends, family, and successful career--aren't enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless. When she decides to make some major changes in her life, including quitting her job as an optometrist and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love. Georgia’s bravery reminds us that it’s never too late to become the person you want to be, and that taking chances, with your life and your heart, are always worthwhile.
 
Big-hearted, genuine, and universal, I Almost Forgot About You shows what can happen when you face your fears, take a chance, and open yourself up to life, love, and the possibility of a new direction. It’s everything you’ve always loved about Terry McMillan.

    The actual book was very good but I don't think Terry McMillan is good at narrating. Her voice is very monotone and almost depressing. She doesn't separate the characters as she reads so at times it was hard to tell which character was speaking. She doesn't read with punctuation so a lot if the sentences sound like run-on sentences. Again, great book but I think she should get a professional narrator.

    Loved it! Sounds like she has sat in on me and my girlfriends as we share our stories. We can all relate to the characters....both male and the female ones. Makes a girl want to look up old friends...

    great book enjoyed the convenience of audio format. i was able to listen to the book on my road trip 6 hours each way. I'm part of a book club and one of the ladies said that she read this book in 5 days and is reading it again.
