Angela grew up in an all-black upper-class neighborhood in Virginia Beach. Being raised by conservative parents, street life was almost nonexistent. Her college years at Hampton University would truly educate her; not only in school, but also in life. She never imagined the attention her body and beauty would bring her. Angela finds herself torn between Mac, a successful real estate broker, and Damien, a young Jamaican hustler from Brooklyn. Both show Angela love in their own way, and her choice will be her destiny.

This book may have been much better with a better narrator. The inappropriate pauses, mispronounced words, and overall sound of her reading this made it a struggle to get through. It appeared as if there was a lack of preparation on the narrator's part.

The overall story was decent..nothing we haven't seen in movies or heard in rap songs. I did enjoy the homage to the 90's!!

Hyena is a collection of autobiographical stories by Jude Angelini, which takes the listener on his journey of heartbreak, depravity, and hilarity, deftly moving between his adult life and his childhood growing up in a factory town outside of Detroit. Each story is told with brutal honesty yet maintains a gallows humor that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

My first audio book. Read Hummingbird 1st and I knew I had to have this! I absolutely love how creative his writing style is. The way he tells his stories are just "normal" but so real and you feel like you are right there! Great job Jude. WE NEED ANOTHER ONE..OR 2 OR 3...
