Publisher's Summary

K’wan delivers his bloodiest story yet.

“One bullet changed everything.”

Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem.

Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

While Gucci teeters between life and death, Animal sets out on a bloody mission fueled by love and orchestrated by bullets. There will be no more innocents. Alliances are formed and secrets uncovered while Animal wages his personal war on the streets of Harlem, with the end result revealing one great truth: he is only a small piece in a much larger puzzle.

About the author: K’wan is the number one Essence best-selling author of Section 8, Gutter, Still Hood, Hood Rat, Eve, Hoodlum, Street Dreams, Gangsta, Road Dawgz, and others. He has been featured in Time, New York Press, King, Big News, and on MTV.

    "Ganger Paradise"

    Bought this book because I was looking for something a bit different and because it had good reviews. Didn't really know what to expect so was a little surprised with the story line and setting.

    Basically it's about a bunch of African American rappers and gangsters in Brooklyn and Harlem. Found it to be insightful into that way of life and was well written and narrated.

    Overall it was enjoyable but I wouldn't rush out and buy another book along these lines simply because it's not my favourite genre. If you like this type of setting you'll enjoy this book.

    "The beast unleashed"

    I don't normally read this type of urban fiction, but a fellow author friend mentioned he was reading this title so I took a chance. I'm glad I did! This was action packed all the way til the end. I hated that it ended, leaving me hanging on the edge to see what would happen next. The story line kept me engrossed and the interactions between the characters was excellent. Cary Hite, who read the story was excellent! He made the dialect of each character believable. I'd be intrested in listening to him again.
    Looking forward to part two

    "SUPERB STORY AND ENDING! You will never guess why."
    Would you listen to Animal again? Why?

    Absolutely, I would listen to this book again. Because the way K'wan weaves this story line, I must listen at least 2 more times to be completely informed. Hints are all through this book and that is why I must listen again.


    What other book might you compare Animal to and why?

    The Cartel by Ashley and JaQuavis.


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    I love Cary's performance on this book. He is awesome and nails the female parts as well as the male parts in this book.


    If you could rename Animal, what would you call it?

    I would not rename this book, it is the Animal! Animal is what has everyone buying this book. It is all about THE ANIMAL through and through.

    "NEVER DISAPOINTED"
    If you could sum up Animal in three words, what would they be?

    Focused, deadly, determined.


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    Cary Hite did an awesome job on this book. He was the perfect narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Tiana was thrown out the window, I wasn't ready to let her go.


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved hearing more about Frankie, Portia, Zo Pound but would really love Don B to get what's coming to him. How long can scum keep coming out on top? It would be wonderful for him to get his, and in a bad way. The only thing that would have made this book better was to see Animal ask for help in the beginning and see the large group of men on the opposite side of the Clarks put together a good plan and make it happen. King James was right when he stated things would have been different if Animal had turned to him for help but at the same time I see why Animal didn't; he couldn't live with their deaths on his concious. As it was his concious was killing him.

    Story
    "Sophmoric, new low for adult literature"

    This book has a lot of high ratings - I do not understand any of them. Usually if there is violence in a story, it is in a good against evil context, in this book, a depiction of life in the inner city, there is only violence for violence sake. The degradation of women is atrocious, they are cursed at, raped, shot and used to package crack and on top of that anytime more that 3 are together at one time a fight breaks out and someone is killed or some man steps in to stop the murder. There is no character with any redeeming feature in the book, the lead character spends his entire time drunk, stoned and killing or torturing other people from the 'hood' - under the pretense of avenging his "woman" Gucci, who was shot by accident in a drive-by which sends him into serial killer mode, never mind that this idiot has a trail of dead bodies behind him a mile long.
    The lack of skill at the craft of writing demonstrated in this train wreck is amazing, it is at the level of a high school sophomore D- student, with serious emotional problems as well. I would have to check but if there is a complete sentence without the f-bomb, n-word or degrading reference to a woman I would be surprised. If the lead characters spend any time not hitting a blunt, drinking, smoking crack or hanging out in a strip club they are looking to kill someone. As depicted this is a window into a grotesque world of barbarism, human degradation and ignorance written without talent and without any positive contribution to society. I would not recommend one second of this trash.
