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.

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!

The narrative by Cary Hite brings a level of understanding to the female characters. Cary could express the emotions of the characters in such a way that you believe that you are watching what is going on in front of you.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes. It was entertaining.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Hmm. Don't know that I would necessarily suggest any major changes. There are alot of characters to recall and the constant use of certain slang was annoying i.e. "you smell me" , but i can't say that I would change anything.
Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?
Animal was my favorite. You could fell his pain at times. However, it would have been even better with a less nasally delivery. when you picture animal, you see a beautifully mixed man with a deep commanding voice with an assuming presence.
