Let Love Have the Last Word Reviews

  • Takema Jones

    Reflective and poignant. I recommend the audio version as you can feel his honesty reverberate around the room.

  • LeeTravelGoddess

    WOW... I MEAN WOOWW!!!! I’ve never heard a man be so, so vulnerable, loving, honest, open and just plan REAL!!! What did he not say or address SHEESH!

    I loved the love quotes at the beginning of each chapter & especially his reference of Mother Bell Hooks’: All About Love— a book I’m somewhat afraid to pick up hahaha! He also references The Prophet x Kahlil Gibran a simple favorite that keeps coming up within the greats that I read about.

    Some of my favorite quotes:

    Some of my favorite quotes:

    “LOVE MAKES YOUR SOUL CRAWL OUT FROM ITS HIDING PLACE” -THEEE Zora Neale Hurston

    “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.” -Victor Hugo

    “Love is a friendship set to music.” -Joseph Campbell

    What can I say y’all, Common did this and I really relished in his speaking on the father daughter relationship that he has with his little lady— as they are so so important!

    He spoke on various relationships and how he wants to be a husband and from what I hear he will be a damn good one. I love that he is speaking on his having a therapist and how that has opened his eyes to his ways and how he legit wants to change/do better/communicate better and that alone is so refreshing.

    “INSANITY— is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result.” This book forces the reader to Dig Deep and sort out their BS... it begs the question “have you examined your SHIT 👀” before criticizing or defending.

    Overall, the book was refreshing to have as apart of my library and also apart of my toolbox of love. I don’t think there is a true definition of love but you know when it’s in your presence. 💚💚💚 def a tops. Bravo to my favorite wordsmith AND AS SOON AS I THOUGHT IT WAS DONE, COM BLESSED MY SOUL WITH A PLAYLIST— You did that Sir!!! THANK YOU!

  • Ashley Gowens

    A beautifully written book about the importance of relationships, love, and forgiveness.

  • Leah

    What a lovely book. He openly shares his struggles with learning to show love and be love. He talks about is daughter, his mother, his father, and his friends. He also openly shares his desire to be a husband and his remembrances of being molested and willingness to forgive.

    This man...both Common and Rasheed...is a good addition to human kind. Grateful for him.

  • Jacques Millet

    GREAT READ! I know I say this often but this book really resonated with me. I recommend this to all my book readers.

  • Kelly Shaw

    Well, the book was all about love. The audiobook is read by Common he did a great job. I was captivated by his voice and what he was saying. It's a love story about life, the good and the bad. You have to forgive to love. Very inspiring.

    بگذار عشق حرف آخر را بزند.

    Inspiring Audio book about Art, family and God. These are the three pillars in which Common supports himself to tell his insightful story by sharing his pain and healing with us in this book.

    Not really a fan of memoirs generally, but I had to pick this one up since I'm such a fan of Common's music.

    In Let Love Have the Last Word Common opens up on a very personal level about his own findings on love through introspection. He discusses his relationships with his mother and daughter and how at times he has struggled to be a good son and father.

    There are some very profound messages to take away from this book. Namely that choosing love is an active and noble goal. Sometimes in lif

    There are some very profound messages to take away from this book. Namely that choosing love is an active and noble goal. Sometimes in life it is hard to be loving- to ourselves and to others, but that is all the more reason why we should strive to do better.

    Pretty good. The last few chapters were great and brought the book together. 3 1/2 stars.

  • Holyn

    3.5 stars I deeply appreciate Common’s vulnerability and authenticity in this book. He is courageous and speaks of things that many men do not. I appreciate his message that love and respect should undergird our decision making along our lives’ paths.

    I wonder if the audio version would be better - the rhythm of the writing was difficult for me to follow. But, as a musician and rapper, I think Common’s reading would keep my attention and bring emphasis to the portions of his story that he finds m
