Publisher's Summary

K’wan delivers his bloodiest story yet.

“One bullet changed everything.”

Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem.

Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

While Gucci teeters between life and death, Animal sets out on a bloody mission fueled by love and orchestrated by bullets. There will be no more innocents. Alliances are formed and secrets uncovered while Animal wages his personal war on the streets of Harlem, with the end result revealing one great truth: he is only a small piece in a much larger puzzle.

About the author: K’wan is the number one Essence best-selling author of Section 8, Gutter, Still Hood, Hood Rat, Eve, Hoodlum, Street Dreams, Gangsta, Road Dawgz, and others. He has been featured in Time, New York Press, King, Big News, and on MTV.

Swims in Circles

Sturggled to finish this, as way too much time was spent setting up b stories, far to many of the characters were exactly the same, and it becomes obvious that this is an 11 hour setup to a sequel.

Animal is a beast!

Where does Animal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have had this book in my wish list for a minute and I have no idea why it took me so long to finally get this book. K'wan character Animal is nothing nice and I love his thug, killer, lover, rapper personality. It's like everything you want in a bad boy! Love this story!

What did you like best about this story?

What I like best is that Animal is just like I said….thug, killer, lover, rapper…if I could choose to have a bad boy, Animal would be it! And the story keep me listening all day long. So happy I finally purchase this book!

What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

Cary Hite voice has always been one of my favorites. He has the ability to bring any character to life. Love his voice!

Any additional comments?

I see why so many people enjoy this book. K'wan keep your attention during the entire book. I'm jumping right into the Animal II so I can find out what happen.

Raw and Animalistic!

This is an awesome book! The detail of each character is so lively! Cary Hite makes each character seem so real and K'wan makes sure you are left wanting to know more about each of them. After listening to this piece I was completely hooked. Animal's passion for Gucci was animalistic to say the least. Animal's survival was epic and I wanted him to be her hero. But not only is Animal able to overcome but his friends prove to be the most loyal in the jungle streets of the city. Bravo!
