I truly did enjoy this book. After listening to Section 8, I was hooked on this series. I loved the characters, especially Animal, as they kept me on the edge of my seat. That man is a beast! At times it was hard to get into the story with the narrator playing both male and female voices as well distinguishing what one character said from another, but I'm sure a re-listen would clarify. I do wish there was more going on with Tionna, but what Gucci was going through made up for it. She really should have chilled out. Those two detectives hounding Animal and his crew got on my nerves as did Malika's son for being hard headed. We never find out who shot Don B, but we did find out he is a punk! I was surprised to learn after further researching on the author, that there are two more books in the Hoodrat series, Hoodrat & Still Hood. It seems also that all of the author's books are tied to one another. I just love stories like that where the plot thickens. In addition, I was happy to find out that there in another book to come called Eviction Notice. I hope audible.com would consider putting all of K'wan's books on here as I would surely listen.
Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
Twice I tried listening to it. I was unable to keep up with the characters and felt that it was just too street for me. If you like the street thugging, ghetto type of story, then this one is for you. However, the narrator, as usual did a SUPERB job!
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 really enjoyed this series and can't wait to read the next book. The author gives great detail and brings you into each characters life so you feel involved.
The story, the narrator, it all worked! This book left me wanting more, I can't wait for the next installment.
This was my first Audible purchase and I was not disappointed. The narrator was so good it was as if you were more a part of the story than you are when you read an actual book!
I enjoyed all of the characters.
All of them. Kwan is just tht good!
I laughed right along with the characters.
Keep up the good work and thank you for making my first Audible experience great! I'll definitely be purchasing more.
Hi my name is Bianca and I am a avid reader. I love all types of genres and read all the time. I am a book worm and always will be one.
Yes because it had a lot of realistic situations and it was very entertaining.
I liked it when rock head got what was coming to him because it was wrong for him to be purposefully infecting those young girls with h.i.v.
Yes. He is a great narrator. All of his narrations are great.
Animal because he's a beast.
K'wan delivers again in this installment of his Hood Rat series. As always, he delivers a fast, paced look into the world of his most memorable characters. The narration is top notched and makes the reader feel like they are in the midst of the story. A must have and a great read!
This is the audiobook that had me going back searching for more "urban" themed audiobooks! I love the characters and their hustle! Although the book has "graphic" language, it suited the situation and the type of environments the characters were coming from. I truly enjoyed listening to it and by the end, I wasn't disappointed and felt it was money well spent!
It seem to me this was a story more about the men, and their corruption. I would have never guess this was a story about Welfare Wifey.
