    One thought on “Domenica con le Supremes”

    1. Serious topics clothed in humorYou know those book reviews you read where the reviewer complains that there were no likeable characters Well The Supremes is the antidote to that I dare you to not like any of these characters no matter what their weaknesses In fact one of the best things about Moore s writing is his ability to create lovable, believable characters They could be your own friends and neighbors or even yourself The Supremes are three women coming of age in the late 1960 s They are b [...]

    2. This was an unexpected page turner about the lives of three friends affectionately known as the Supremes by everyone in their small hometown The story moves effortlessly between past and present events in each of their lives revealing to the reader how they became and remained friends for over 40 years The intermingling of love, abuse, murder, and ghosts really make the story come to life I was surprised by the ending I totally thought I had it figured out, but was happy to learn there was a twi [...]

    3. I gave this delight 5 stars because these people were so real to me I can see them and hear them in my head I can not wait to meet Mr Moore However did he write such a strong book about 3 woman He understood their voices, obviously.I hope this is available in audio because I want to experience them again.Audio was excellent with two narrators One for Odette and one for Clarice.

    4. I found my favorite book of 2014 on the first try I can t wait to see how my other reads measure up to this book It was perfect in every way I laughed, teared up, and fist pumped in triumph for my favorite characters throughout the whole book I recommend for everybody who wants to read a good book.

    5. Characters so unforgettable, I actually MISS them Great book, and always love when male authors present strong female characters.

    6. Well what can I say Supercalafragalisticexpeealidoshious Just a wonderful, human story.This is a fantastic author All the way through I kept asking myself how a male author could be so in tune to female behaviour He must have had many sisters and been a very good brother.Every character is lovable in their own way Clarisse, Odette and Barbara Jean are friends from their young teen years They share the good times, bad time and sad times A must read.

    7. The Help Fried Green Tomatoes a dash of Steel Magnolias The SupremesClarice, Odette, and Barbara Jean are The Supremes They have been called that every since they were teenagers growing up in small town Indiana in the mid 1960 s The Supremes like every other black teenager at the time spent their weekend nights and some weekdays at Earl s All You Can Eat, a restaurant with hot food, cool music, and owners Earl and Thelma who were second parents to every child in town.Now, The Supreme s are in th [...]

    8. When I saw the title, I was immediately drawn to The Supreme s at Earl s All You Can Eat, anticipating a cozy, witty, and insightful, Southern fiction sort of story and I was not disappointed The story follows three good friends, nicknamed the Supremes, over the course of an eventful year Odette, a protagonist, can see spirits, and deceased characters, including the late First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, play an entertaining and important role in the story This is light reading, yet a very gripping [...]

    9. Audio book performed by Adenrele Ojo and Pamella D Pella Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean have been best friends since high school, when they would meet their friends at Earl s All You Can Eat, listening to music and enjoying soft drinks and finger foods In keeping with the music of the day, they were christened The Supremes, but unlike their namesakes they have stayed together through thick and thin They ve married and raised children in Plainview, a small town in southern Indiana near the Kent [...]

    10. Edward Kelsey Moore s first novel comes highly recommended by , BookPage, and nearly all of those who have reviewed it on The title and bright cover seem to promise a rollicking good time How could I be in such a small minority of readers who didn t care for it The Supremes are three women in their mid 50s who have been close friends since high school in a small southern Indiana town For 40 years they ve had a special table at Earl s, a diner presided over by a larger than life father figure to [...]

    11. Oh my I am still trying to figure out how I possibly could have enjoyed this book so much.Edward Kelsey Moore is somewhat of a miracle worker He managed to write a story that will offend nearly every person who reads it at some point and yet entertain those same people in a way that will leave them baffled and confused Most ingenious I literally laughed out loud and sniffed a few tears, I admit while reading The Supremes at Earl s All You Can Eat And I have to disagree with some of the other rev [...]

    12. Moore is a natural storyteller, vividly bringing to life the world of Plainview, Indiana Full of interesting, sometimes quirky, characters, both loveable and despicable, the novel focuses on three female friends in late middle age Descriptions grab you, are entirely integral to the plot, and never go on too long I found really intriguing the historical aspect of this community of people who had grown up together in the 1960 s, when, for instance, mixed race couples were not acceptable, up to the [...]

    13. This is a warm, richly woven book that is both moving and funny that follows the lives of three friends who live in Indiana The Supremes are in their 50s and have known each other since high school, and they are each other s closest friends and allies Odette was born in a syca tree and seems to be completely fearless in life until she discovers that her hot flushes are sinister than just the change of life especially when her dead Mama comes visiting in the small hours, with a drunken Mrs Roose [...]

    14. This was really almost a three.Yeah, I know it s the same chicklit people keep writing over and over Three middle aged women are friends, and between the three of them we have infidelity, alcoholism, debating whether to pursue a long lost love, and illness They live in a small town which doesn t happen to be in the deep south this time but may as well be The characters are not particularly fleshed out the issues are not new or dealt with in a new way But still, I could be a little forgiving of w [...]

    15. The Supremes are three African American girlfriends who bonded as teenagers in Plainview, Indiana in the 1960s, and remained friends for all their lives Odette, self confident and assertive, married a sensitive man and raised three loving and successful children Odette also converses with ghosts, particularly her mother and Eleanor Roosevelt ha ha ha Clarice, a talented pianist, married a handsome womanizer and suffered endless embarrassment and distress because of his adultery much to the chagr [...]

    16. I totally enjoyed The Supremes at Earl s All You Can Eat Where else could you encounter such a wonderful cast of characters that includes the cartwheeling flask sipping fox stole wearing ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt In this serio comic walk through the decades long friendship of Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean The Supremes the reader is treated to well defined characters, the highs and lows in their lives, the light moments as well as the tragedies they have endured, a surprising turn of events, [...]

    17. I d give this a 3.75 I laughed out loud at some of the happenings and shook my head at others, but sometimes I wondered if I was laughing at the characters instead of with them I ve heard that there is a strong possibility this will be made into a movie and it will make a great movie The last 50 pages or so brought this book from a 3 to a 3.75, rounded to a 4 Definitely worth reading I loved this quote What we call miracles is just what s supposed to happen We either go with it or stand in its w [...]

    18. This book is an unadulterated delight from start to finish It s the story of three women Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean, who become friends as children growing up in Indiana and manage to remain so through years of heartbreak, struggle, and thankfully a whole lot of laughter Dubbed The Supremes in their younger years while hanging out at Big Earl s buffet restaurant, aptly named The All You Can Eat, the three friends rely on each other when the challenges of life threaten to overwhelm them.Th [...]

    19. I first heard about this book from a review in a local, small town newspaper, and was convinced I needed to give it a try I absolutely adored it My only regret is that I was out of town and didn t get to meet Moore when he was in Indianapolis the night before I finished it It would be hard to pick a funniest or most poignant part of the book, because there were so many I lost track of how many times I laughed out loud during Sharon s wedding, and I believe I cried and laughed almost nonstop duri [...]

    20. Very impressive style funny, witty, heartfelt All the characters, especially the female ones are alive, vivid and sparkling and the story doesn t want to be than what it is touching, soothing, makes you believe in love and friendship, triggers a good laugh A real tingling bubble bath for the soul But thankfully not the glittery pink one and not that light at all ________________________A k nyv, aminek hetekig nem tudtam megjegyezni, s t tudatos tani a c m t Most meg m r nagy b szk n ki ltan m n [...]

    21. My only complaint about this book is that it s Edward Kelsey Moore s debut novel, which means I can t go out and buy up all the other books he s written and revel in wonderful storytelling by this gifted author I m willing to forgive him if it turns out that he s working on his next book The characters voices were clear, strong and authentic Mr Moore captured these women beautifully, with their quirks and foibles and strengths Just when I thought I knew where the plot was headed, it veered off [...]

    22. This book is certainly a departure for me I picked it without reading the blurb but the novel enjoyed high ratings and that was enough for me When I discovered that the story was about three middle aged African American women and their lives, I was a little daunted Call it an irrational phobia, but I resisted reading books about black people ever since I had Cry the Beloved Country as my school literature text so many years ago Poignantly, satirically and with much humour, the author shows us ho [...]

    23. Wonderful slice of life story that I read from start to finish in two sittings I liked that the characters were realistic and believable, with a few colorful and quirky characters along the way, as well as a few good black men thrown in for good measure Mr Earl, James and Lester all get kudos from me Have mixed emotions about the Chick and Barbara Jean storyline That situation felt sort of cliche to me While many stories have been told about female friendships, Moore did a good job of capturing [...]

    24. This review was originally published on Cozy Up With A Good ReadI don t really know what I was expecting when I went into this book, so the story that I read actually kept me entertained since I didn t have any ideas going into it The book was fun with a great emotional side to it as well This is a book that is about a friendship that stays strong through many years and many hurdles The Supremes are three women, who were given that name by high school friends and since then have stayed together [...]

    25. This book gets a 5 from me for being honest and fun and sad and bold and alive I didn t want it to end because I wanted to continue spending time with these people as long as possible I wanted to wake up tomorrow and visit with them again since they had become like good friends you don t ever want to say goodbye to Yes, they all had faults and tics and idiosyncrasies just like real people and you loved them anyway just like real people.There were laugh out loud moments along with tearful moments [...]

    26. Absolutely, positively an incredible read I found myself laughing out loud, yet also feeling pain for the Supremes as they faced life s challenges It is even mind blowing that these strong female voices were penned by a male Thank you, Edward Kelsey Moore, for your work I am now a 1 fan

    27. THE SUPREMES AT EARL S ALL YOU CAN EATEdward Kelsey MooreWhat easily could have been just another three girlfriends traversing over 40 years together, this novel is so much than that It has such a ring of truth and feels brand new and full of passion.The Earl s All You Can Eat cafe in a small southern black community in Plainview, Indiana becomes the meeting place of three young high school girls that Earl dubs the Supremes After 60 years, Earl s passing isn t the only reason for the ladies pos [...]

    28. Well, it has always been easy for women authors to write a story in a man s voice, however, I have rarely read a book written by a man who catches the flair of a woman s voice.Edward Kelsey Moore is that rare author between hot flashes and other female physical issues, Edward hit it right on the head The Supremes Clarie, Odette and Barbara Jean have been friends since their high school days of the 60 s they have come together in the small town of Plainview, Indiana through a myriad of events, an [...]

    29. I enjoyed meeting the characters in this story although there were a few despicable ones The Supremes are the kind of friends I value and wish I had of I liked how they were always there for each other helping Barbara Jean with her alcohol problem, supporting Clarice as she dealt with Richmond, and caring for Odette while she was sick Edward Moore s style is humorous and real It was engaging to periodically flashback on Supreme memories as the story progressed And who wouldn t want to know what [...]

    30. 2.5 Stars Not much original or believable in this book for me Found the narration confusing and annoying switching from 1st person Odette to third person throughout the book, and had a hard time staying interested On the positive side, Odette is a great character, and her interaction with the ghosts kept me going to the unfortunate absurd ending.This book has high ratings on GR s, but it was just not for me.
