    "Excellent Book with lots of action!"

    I just finished listening to this book, and wow! If you love gangster/mob type movies and/or books--then get this one. Ezra did a wonderful job nnarratoring this book. Since I love courtroom dramas, this book was excellent as it takes place in a courtroom, but flashes back to other events that happened. Ready to read the sequel.

    "Waiting for more"

    Never thought that I would be cheering for the likes of "Dutch and everything he represented. Loved his strength, his psych, and every person he represented in the hood. Soooo tangible....so real!

    "Action Packed!"
    What made the experience of listening to Dutch the most enjoyable?

    This book instantly grabbed my attention and took me on a thrill ride though the sequels! Original plots. You were challenged to guess what was next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dutch was my favorite because he was a born genius.


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

    I have listen to Ezra Knight's other performances and liked this one the best so far. When I search for more books, I will include Ezra Knight in my search for new books. Outstanding!


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

    I felt like I was on a roller-coaster, I could wait to get back on the ride.


    Any additional comments?

    Donald Goines lives. I would love to hear Ezra Knight narrating Donald Goines' series of books.

    "Depressing Look and Story on Urban Culture"

    I have enjoyed stories of criminals and gangsters for years, but the longer I listened to this the more depressed I felt. There is so much hate from remarkably shallow people I just had to quit listening. I am sure this story rings true for many, sadly people like this thrive in the US.

    For example I've heard of black soldiers in Vietnam Nam killing white soldiers in some circumstances. But here we have a character killing well over 50 fellow soldiers because of his hatred of whites. Depressing? I think so.

    "Good story about the streets"

    So, I have just read Teri Wood's "True to the Game" and was completely swept up. I decided to try out "Dutch" because it was on sale. I'm glad I did. I thought he story was interesting and gritty, the characters ruthless and raw. I did not like this book as much as "True to the Game" or "White Lines" (both beginning trilogy books about hustling on the streets) but I would definitely recommend. I also have a strong suspicion that this will be one of those trilogies where each one gets better and better. There's a lot of room left for character growth and development and plot twists and turns. I am sure Ms. Woods will deliver. check this out.

    "It was ok"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't go as far to say time well spent but it held my interest for the most part.


    Has Dutch turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all. I'm not really in a rush to read the second and third parts, but I will out of curiosity.


    What does Ezra Knight bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a wonderful job giving the story life and distinguishing the characters.


    Could you see Dutch being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a series. It would need a lot of development. I see what the author was goin for, but the story lagged at times.
