Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nobody does female reinvention better than McMillan.” AARP Magazine
“Brims with sexy repartee, caustic humor, and a fluent, assured prose that shines a bright light on her memorable characters.” O, The Oprah Magazine
“McMillan is funny and frank about men, women, and sex. Her summaries of Georgia’s marriages and major love connections—‘this is what he gave me’—are powerful and poetic.” USA Today
“Displaying a range of emotions, I Almost Forgot About You is a book that is important for readers of every age…It’s clear McMillan wants readers to look within to find the answers they needed all along.” Ebony
“Self-discovery, second chances, and the importance of family are thematic hallmarks of McMillan’s novels, as is the rich and colorful dialogue that make her books so much fun to read. I Almost Forgot About You checks all the boxes.” Washington Post
“An engaging novel with an appealing cast of women…Will prompt arguments of what makes a guy too good to be true.” Library Journal (starred review)
“The only thing better than reading a Terry McMillan novel is hearing her deliver one of her own works…McMillan believably inhabits Georgia…Equally exhilarating are McMillan’s renderings of Georgia’s best friend, Wanda…The most fun is hearing the banter of her classmates at their fortieth class reunion and Georgia’s own snarky retorts. Listeners will feel sad, joyful, and amused—and may be tempted to replicate Georgia’s quest in their own lives. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A rambunctious showcase of the bestselling author’s keen ear for language, clear eye for the give-and-take of sex, love, and commitment, and heartfelt faith in happy endings.” Publishers Weekly
'[A] spirited story of old flames and second chances.” BookPage
“Strong, complicated female characters, energetic prose, and an entertaining, seductive narrative. A heartwarming story that reminds us of the pure joy of believing in love.” Kirkus Reviews
