"K'wan continues his popular Hood Rat series with yet more of what his readers expect: action, murder, betrayal, sex, more action, familiar faces, and a few surprises." (Publishers Weekly)
This book gets all credit for starting my love affair with Urban Fiction! Once I began listening, I was instantly intrigued. I had no idea there were books like this! I had fallen out of reading and had only truly gotten back into it due to the writer's strike on TV. One day I decided to take chance a story called Section 8 and was blown away! I love how each chapter tells its own story all the while leaving you with a tidbit of info to keep in mind as the plot thickens. This story seemed to just unexpectedly pull you in each characters own triumph and dilemma and make you want to know more about their story whether it be good or bad. My favorite character was Gucci just because she was so down to earth and loyal. The interaction between her and her girlfriends felt real because K'wan truly made them individuals, flaws and all. Oh and this character Animal was the epitome of what I want in a boyfriend in my head lol. This was a great read/listen and once I was done, I had Welfare Wifey's next on deck! This may be the first book offered by the very talented author on audible.com, but it is merely scratching the surface when it comes to K'wan's catalog. Ya'll need to see about that man!!
It took a minute for the writer to introduce all the characters, but once that was out of the way it was a very good listen, I got to where I would sit in my car and continue to listen after I got to my destination, I really enjoyed this one, I had alot of laugh out loud moments!!
I actually listened to the sequel Welfare Wifeys first before I realized that there was a book before it. This is a good listen but the narrator just didn't live up to the job that the Welfare Wifeys narrator gave. I still suggest this book because it gives you more insight on the charactors which I enjoyed.
This was a great listen! I wished it would have more a storyline ending so that the listeners know what happens to the characters. I loved "Animal" in this story. All in ALL it was was s good story.
Love Horror and Sci-Fi. I enjoy historical romance
I tend to soak up anything by this writer. His gritty description of street life is eerily accurate. Love his books!
No because I had to rewind constantly to make sense of all the grammatical errors made by the narrator.
The content I would compare to Welfare Wifey's but the listening experience for Welfare Wifey's is far much better.
Capital N.O. I wouldn't waste another credit.
Yes, I would definitely!
Plain and simple... Story=100% Narration=0%
Avid reader, listener and educator. I love a good story. I often use my audio account for my students as well. What an awesome tool.
I have about a 30 minute drive to work daily so I look forward to listening to a good story. I decided to listen when I was reading various reviews.
This story is gritty with unexpected twists. This author is dead on.
The narration was okay. Not always fond on females doing male voices. I got use to it.
I'M NOT PERFECT BUT I AM A LIMITED ADDITION!
This was the beginning to a wonderful ending of the animal you must read all to understand the story ! Section 8 welfare wifey eviction notice and the animal all worth reading but must read in order to understand all characters
It was ok not bad better then most
Yes it has one welfare wifey
Yes, I would recommend thi book to others, but I would tell them that it is an average read because as you are introduced to the characters and become familiar with them, there isn't anything new or fresh about them.
The development of the relationship between Animal and Gucci was interesting. I liked that Gucci had strong values about love and support.
Can't think of anything at this time.
I am not sure.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I listened to the books out of order but I enjoyed this story from start to finish. After realizing there were more in the series I purchased all 3 and re-listened to them again. I can't wait for the next book.
