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.

    "Love the voice reading it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Animal to be better than the print version?

    I can't say enough about the voice.


    Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?

    I liked animal...Cary really had a way of switching up his voice to distinguish between characters even the ladies..


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt connected even though I have never lived this type of life it's like you become connected to the characters and their stories


    Any additional comments?

    I think the voice is what made this book even better.

    "Animal is a beast!"
    Where does Animal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have had this book in my wish list for a minute and I have no idea why it took me so long to finally get this book. K'wan character Animal is nothing nice and I love his thug, killer, lover, rapper personality. It's like everything you want in a bad boy! Love this story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I like best is that Animal is just like I said….thug, killer, lover, rapper…if I could choose to have a bad boy, Animal would be it! And the story keep me listening all day long. So happy I finally purchase this book!


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    Cary Hite voice has always been one of my favorites. He has the ability to bring any character to life. Love his voice!


    Any additional comments?

    I see why so many people enjoy this book. K'wan keep your attention during the entire book. I'm jumping right into the Animal II so I can find out what happen.

    "Raw and Animalistic!"

    This is an awesome book! The detail of each character is so lively! Cary Hite makes each character seem so real and K'wan makes sure you are left wanting to know more about each of them. After listening to this piece I was completely hooked. Animal's passion for Gucci was animalistic to say the least. Animal's survival was epic and I wanted him to be her hero. But not only is Animal able to overcome but his friends prove to be the most loyal in the jungle streets of the city. Bravo!

    "WOW !!!"
    Would you listen to Animal again? Why?

    Yes. I loved this book.

    Very well written and even better delivery. The book is raw and gritty. It gave me insight into the life and thinking of a street thug and gang life. Kids I thought of as clueless and thoughtless I see are far more complicated. No matter our many, many differences we all share similar stuggles. In one world its banking in another it loan sharking.


    Have you listened to any of Cary Hite’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Cary before but I am gonna look for his other readings. He was awesome. It felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to a book. He brought each character to life. Absolutly fabulous. I've listened to hundreds of audio books over the last 10 years and Cary ( at least with this reading ) ranks with the best of the best.

    This is a great episode of the Urban epic. Animal is an awesome character, but so are all the others. Get all of K'wan's books. They all get my stamp of approval.
