Delightful divas

This is a highly-engrossing, easy-reading novel based on the play and movie "Dreamgirls." This is loosely based on the story of Diana Ross and the Supremes, and even if you're seeing the movie first, the book will not disappoint. However, it's exactly the same as the movie, so don't expect any different plot twists. If you like sing-alongs and remember the tunes, you will be happy to see the lyrics here in the book. It won't be a spoiler to tell you that this has a happy ending, which is not the real-life story of Diana Ross and the Supremes. But the twist of having Deena take over as lead singer is clearly taken from the idea that Flo Ballard was supposed to be the lead singer of the Supremes (and had the best voice) until Diana Ross grabbed opportunity by the hand (specifically, Berry Gordy's hand) and took the lead spot. Light, easy, fun reading for the plane as you travel for the holidays or relax after too much partying.

Denene Millner Take Your Bow ~ Outstanding

This was such a great read. Millner did an excellent job of penning this story. As many have said if you are fan of "Dreamgirls," you will definitely enjoy this book. I found myself singing along with the words on the pages i.e., Cadillac Car, Dreamgirls, And I am Telling You, and One Night Only. Dreamgirls is a story that will make you laugh, cry and oh so very angry during some parts of the story. I was able to visualize the characters, feel their joys, pains, ups, downs, successes and struggles. If you've seen the play or plan to see the movie, get the book. If you haven't seen either the play and will be unable to see the movie ... you better hurry and get the book! A book everyone should have in their collection of stories.

I loved it!

It was a quick read, and a great story! The story behind Dreamgirls as we all know, its a "disguised" version of the story of the original Supremes, Mary Wilson, Diana Ross and Florence Ballard. This book brought tears to my eyes (seriously) because it ended happily. It was very good. I trully wished that the true story of the Supremes had a happy ending, wish we all know it didn't, and the only original surviving Supremes Diana Ross and Mary Wilson are still at each other's throats. If they only realized how much they are loved by millions, what they mean to their fans, and once and for all end their feud and bring their story a happy ending! Please ladies, don't leave us on a sour note forever. Think about it. It is still not too late!

A Dream to read

I must say I am very bias...I am obsessed with Dreamgirls...I visit the Dreamgirls movie blog [...]and have loved the Broadway Musical for probably all 20 of my years. The novelization of this enchanting musical is an easy read and adds the little details that let you know what each character is thinking and fills in gaps that the original musical left out. I don't want to give too much away....but be warned if you don't want to a spoiler of the movie that I have been waiting a year for...then you might not want to read...but if your curiosity gets the better of you (like me for instance) then you still won't be upset in the least!

I enjoyed it

I really enjoyed this novelization and it was a quick read. If you are a Dreamgirls fan it will be hard to put down. An obvious (and it sounds fairly literal) adaption of the screenplay, one gets a good mental picture of what we will seeing in December. I find it very interesting that while the play tried to "cover up" the Motown/Supreme similarities (obviously for legal reasons in the 80s), this book/film accentuates them. Worth the read for a soul/DG fan.
