I can't decide whether it was the similar sounding names or the shallow and unfinished personalities of the characters or the long drawn out slow sometimes boring and confusing story or maybe the dialogue that was mostly cursing or the way the characters professed their undying love for each other after a few days. Worst money I ever spend. The ending was terrible. Idk if this author wrote this to finish up a book deal but it wasn't with an hour of my life. The performer was great but there were weird pauses in his narration where there should not have been but it didn't happen often
I'm not quite sure how I feel about this book. There were several times in the first six hours of the listening that I just wanted to delete it from my library. I was going to chalk it up as being a book that just was not for me. I really struggled to continue listening. It seemed really difficult to keep up with the characters. I'm not sure if that was because of the narrator or because of how the book was written. I managed to complete the book but I will never listen to it again. I have had much better reads from both K'wan and Cary Hite. This one just seemed to miss the mark for me.
omg I absolutely love love this book.. it was sooo funny and sad at the end. nevertheless the reader Cary hite is the best narrator for and hood books out there. I love his voice.....
Omg it is a pleasure to listen to the first book in the series the origins of the back stories were so fascinating, I'm gonna go back to and listen to them again.. IM SO CAUGHT UP AGAIN!!
The narrator's voice killed it for me. Trying to do several different women's voices in deep husky voices irritated me to no end. Storyline was ok but hard to get through because of the annoying voice.
Is one of the few, amazing black writers that have caught my eye, and I have been loving all of his book since. My husband enjoys these books as well. I'am currently waiting for somebody to offer K'wan a movie deal. The books are real life on what's going on in the Hoods across the world. K'wan keep up the good no great work and God is going to open a door can't no man close...
I stepped out of my comfort zone when I bought this book. I didn't really know what to expect. I learned a lot from reading this book. It seems I've led a sheltered life. I thought this book very interesting. I'm glad a gave it a chance
