    "This might be a good book for a lesbian to read. I had to read it for school for a character study and it was very interesting that's for sure. Overall I didn't mind having to read this at all it was quite entertaining."

    "I read some of the harsh reviews but I disagree with all of them. Fire & Brimstone is a page turner and I really enjoyed the book. In the forefront is the story of two gay women and the challenges they face in their daily lives. It is beautifully written and addresses many important contemporary gay issues. "

    "This book explores the difficulties of being a African American lesbian and single mom and the conflicts encountered in society and relationships, focusing on Chris the single mom and Gayle whom she meets after running a personal ad. The book jumps around timelines and characters' pasts and present drama in a disjointed way that doesn't flow well and muddles the storytelling, making it a slog to get through but if you persist you'll be glad you did and gain new insights for your efforts."

    "The settings are realistic, so I guess you could say it's somewhat historical fiction.. but usually when I hear that term I think older settings, such as medieval europe, or even colonial america. The characters themselves are not exactly lesbians, but have recently become attracted to each other."

    "Fire & Brimstone by Laurinda D. Brown was all over the place. This book seemed to take forever to finish. This was mostly due to the storyline and how it was presented. It seemed that the story was jumping all over the place which made the events in the novel hard to follow. It also seemed like this book was poorly edited as some of the dialogue seemed wrong."

    "Great book on lesbianism. but I was looking for a book on transgender. I really liked this book, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. "

    "Gayle is a Church music minister who has a tendency for manipulative behavior when it comes to the women she dates. Now if this seems hypocritical, that is pretty much the point and it is a key aspect of the plot! When she responds to a personal ad from Chris, who is coming to accept her attraction to women, then Gayle eventually finds that she needs to reconsider how she is going about her life. I think this one does a good job of developing the perspectives of the characters, even if the plot is a little chaotic at times."

    "This book seems absolutely disgusting. I don't agree with writing a novel about two single moms, trying to make ends, ruining a happy home and then come together. There is something very wrong with this writer and this book should not even be sold. Glad it isn't very expensive, b/c its plain trash."
