Horrible Narrator

This guy is so bad that I cant tell if the book is good or not. I still have 3 hours left and im annoyed. He has burped while reading, paused, went over the same sentence twice. He’s horrible and cannot read. This is why I dislike the Plus Catalog, because we end up with bad books with worse narrators. At least it didnt cost me a credit. Save your time. Its not worth it.

So so

The story was interesting. But the narrator wasn’t any good. I’ve heard him read other books and it was just the same.

Interesting

The character developing from each, only tried to improve for the better with the circumstances in which they were already in. The characters involved all seemed to have struggles and figured how to get it out the mud with a connect from Dad’s supplier. The audible was a good listen for me

Drug boys

The story line was good. I liked the fact that he got in , did what he had to do and got out. It is not an easy thing to do but life has to be lived. You get the money, work hard, enjoy it

Overall, I loved it

The story line was great and the ending was better than expected but had me wanting more. The voice over was terrible.

Great Read’

I was hesitant to read this book. But I decided to start reading it and stop if I didn’t like where I thought it was going. I’m so glad I decided to try. This book was an excellent read from start to finish.

Terrible narrator

I loved Jas. The characters were very young tho I don’t like when teens are over sexualized but unfortunately that’s urban fiction books. The narrator sounded like he needed to blow his nose 1/2 the book & clear his throat the other 1/2. The story line seemed good but I struggled to finish bc of the narrator

Good Story

This audio was good and I enjoyed it. It shows that if you play your cards right - you can get out of the game. A lot of individuals fail to recognize why there are drug dealers in the hood and who started the teen and still to this day benefiting from his. It’s always the low level dealers getting punish while the big fish continues to get away and profit off our backs.
