The Supreme's at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is a sassy and hilarious story about 3 African-American ladies dealing with the trials and tribulations of life. Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean each narrate their story or the other's through the book. The novel spans from about 1950s to maybe even today, I think. I'm not positive but I think I remember reading about someone reaching for a phone in their purse, which led me to believe that. The narrator is most of the time Odette but changes to either Clarice or Barbara Jean when the details of their lives or how they're feeling is more personnel. Frankly I wasn't thrilled with the shift in voice. It didn't flow and sometimes was a little confusing. It made me concentrate primarily on the plot as a whole more than on each character. The rhythm of the novel was fairly fast past and made me laugh out loud continuously. That was refreshing. Edward Kesley Moore was obviously an African-American woman in another life because the voices of these three women, as the other female characters in the novel were spot on. There are some really funny quotes from this book and I suggest you check them out on here. In the end I gave this book 3 stars because I liked it but I can't say I really liked it. Actually I would have given it 3,5 stars. Come on Goodreads give us that blasted half star option, especially since books can be rated overall 3,75 stars. Really? The problems I had with it are stated above but also some parts were predictable and the novel didn't contain anything particularly different concerning the plot. I suggest you pick it up if you want a light and fast read. It would definitely make a great movie. I can see Octavia Butler playing the role of Odette.
