    Story
    "The title says it all...this book IS GANGSTA!!"
    What did you love best about Gangsta?

    Lou Loc was my favorite character in this story. He's a stand up guy, a loyal friend as well as a devoted boyfriend/fiancee' once he's given his heart.


    What other book might you compare Gangsta to and why?

    I guess I would compare this story to Animal, another great story by K'wan. In both stories, the central characters are driven by their loyalty to those they love, a very commendable and sexy quality. *winks*


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

    I enjoyed listening to yet another story narrated by Cary Hite. I am familiar with his voice and he always does a good job. My only complaint would be how he pronounced "Loc" sometimes as "lock". It didn't ruin the story for me though so no harm no foul.


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

    I was really affected by a major death. This person had come so far to have their life snatched away because of a jealous, power hungry joke and a triflin' trick. I'm still mad about it!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I still loved this story. Even though I listened to it as if the ending would change since I'd read the book before, I still enjoyed it. Certain parts of the book seemed like foreshadowing on what was to come and made the listen even more intriguing. Loved it!!

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    "Story flowed nicely"
    Where does Gangsta rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would rank somewhere in the middle.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I always love when a book has rounded, well developed, relatable characters. This book had likeable characters that you don't always agree with. Also, the ending was a bit unpredictable.


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

    Gutta...hands down!


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

    The ending


    Any additional comments?

    There were some supernatural elements that were not explained. I wish they would have gone into detail and explained what was going on. I am looking forward to the next book.

    "OK.... But not as good as the Animal Series"

    The storyline did not flow as well as most of Kwan's other books. Started off slow and dry.
