Hi Not surprised, the other thread was getting vicious

.

Penny and everyone, (Penny is probably just getting back from Target to buy the book. LOL). I know I couldn’t wait, so I downloaded it from iBooks at 12:01am this morning. I did a speed read the book (yes, I peek at the end of mysteries ) and now I will go back and actually read it so I can discuss it.

.

My question to Penny and everyone, the prologue describes her reaction to the news that fateful day, where the was, what she was doing, etc. My suggestion, if you all agree is that, I think we should address the prologue at the end of our discussions and start right at chapter one, because the prologue (news of his death and thereafter) is sort of the ending of the story. What do you think?

.

Penny, Let us know if you agree, where to begin and when to begin book discussions. Peace.

Yes, let's start at chapter 1 & save the prologue for the end. I just checked my order again, it's still sitting at the warehouse waiting for UPS. I am going to Target. I am not waiting til next week. I can always give the other book as a gift.

Two parts that have really stuck out to me. For the record, I have read the prologue and then skipped to chapters 8 and 9, where Mayte goes into detail about she and prince as newlyweds, her pregnancy, and the birth of their son.


~~


First, a funny one, p. 189: Mayte and prince have just found out that she is pregnant.


-


[See blurb at the top of the thread snip - luv4u]


-


falloff


~~


Second, a sweet and sad part, on p. 209, which I think illustrates THE VERY BEST of Prince as a human being. After Amiir was born, Mayte underwent surgery.

[See blurb at the top of the thread snip - luv4u]

All I can say is that Mayte's loving description of Prince as a father touches my heart.

Please do not discuss the book until we all get the book. We are going chapter by chapter. Thank you.

This thread is on Associated artists and people, and not Prince music and more. It’s a book club. You don’t join a book club unless you enjoy the book or are interested in the book! You don’t have to love her, but we are going to discuss the events and story with no bashing and hate. ~~ Peace

Thanks but no thanks for your help Billie. The mods and I are working together on this thread and we will handle it. As you have said you are not going to read the book.

I bought my book today at a brick-and-mortar Target.

I have a bad cold today and can barely breathe out of my nose. I had to call out sick today from work. I had 2 do some errands, including buying dry food 4 my beloved cat. After taking my husband 2 work, I stop at Target. I walk 2 the book section. On the New Books shelf, there are no copies of The Most Beautiful. I ask him if there are any more copies. He grabs a scanner and I show him the spot on the shelf for the book. He scans barcode on the shelf label.

He says, "There are 3 in the back. Do U want one."

I said, "Yes I do." A couple of minutes elapse, then he comes out with the book.

He said, "Looks like an interesting book."

I said, "Yeah, I love Prince."

I have 2 general observations.

(1) I have come across a couple of dates that are incorrect. One of them is the date of artwork that prince made for her that she describes as being for their 1st anniversary, but the date would have been for their second anniversary.

(2) Mayte wants to set the record straight on some things that happened while she and prince were married.

I will be more specific as the discussion of the book progresses.

I really think it's going to be a top seller, my Target only had 2 copies left and I got one of the 2.
