    "I LIKED IT"

    I really liked this book. The ending had me anxious to get to book 2. But the next 2 books should be free because they do not meet the standards of book 1.

    "It was cool"

    I like hearing stories about the streets, this was a good story but had too many disconnected moving parts, the characters were not properly introduced, but the story line is strong. So strong that I will read the next book!

    The dialogue was despicable. Too many non important characters. Hopefully the sequel is better than this. Kinda scared to find out.....

    Story
    "Not my kind of experience..."

    I cannot speak to whether the author is good at crafting stories, because I just couldn't get through the language and attitude. I quit the whole experience early. I can't imagine how I spent one of my precious credits on this--it's probably my own carelessness that put this into my library, and I'll be more careful to match purchases with my interests.

    Story
    "Interesting book with interesting characters"
    What made the experience of listening to True to the Game the most enjoyable?

    Cary Hite enhanced the story with his performance, but this is a good story that keeps the listener engaged. The characters are all realistic, they have flaws, yet you like them and care about what happens to them.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I didn't have a reaction. I knew there was more to the story. I was eager to hear more.


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

    This performance is as good as any. He performs the ladies just as well as the men without over doing it. Also, he comes with emotion when it's necessary. Great job.


    If you could rename True to the Game, what would you call it?

    I think the name fits, but " Love and War" would be a good description also.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my second go with this series, so that's saying something.
