Taking You Back…

K’wan is back taking readers on another hood tour and the first stop is Harlem’s Douglass Projects. Fans of K’wan’s novels are well aware of the movers and shakers in the Douglass houses and happily many of them are back for cameo appearances. It takes a skilled writer to be able to update readers on past characters while still engaging them with a new tale. But K’wan manages to catch readers up on characters he introduced not just in the Hood Rat series but from as far back as R

Eviction Notice By Kwan

The Streets Will Never Be The Same.

What can I say that I haven't said already or that others haven't said? Kwan is one of the greatest street lit authors on the market past and present. I have been a supporter for a long time and with the quality stories this author is putting out, I will continue to be a supporter. I have never read an authors work that makes you want to go back and reread their earlier work. While reading "Eviction Notice" I was saying, “damn I need to g

Eviction Notice by K'wan

You know how it is when you watch a good movie and the actors played their parts so well that you actually saw them as that character and had an actual disdain for that them??? Well that's what K'wan did with his characters in Eviction Notice! I was so mad with some of those characters until I just wanted to snatch them out the pages and smacked the hell out of them! How many times does someone actually have to tell you what it is before you listen, instead of you wantin

The correct order to read the Hood Rat Novel series is: Hood Rat, Still Hood, Section 8, Welfare Wifeys, Eviction Notice, & Animal. FYI readers: "The Leak" is a prequel of "Welfare Wifeys"; "The First & Fifteenth" is intro to "No Shade"; "No Shade" is a prequel to "Eviction Notice"; "Ghetto Bastard is the beginning of the Animal series. This is why the books are listed in such order.

I love K'wan and what he writes. My all time favorite book is Gansta by K'wan. Then Eve, Section 8 and Eviction Notice. I can't wait for the book Animal. Of all his characters Lou-Loc is my favorite, with Animal coming in a very close second. This is book was the bomb and I would recommend it to all those who love street lit. "TeamAnimal"

This fifth installment of the Hood Rat series is about the friends who are sub-leasing an apartment and receive an eviction notice. Porshs, Sahara and Frankie have three days to come up with the money, and go thru Hell trying to get it.

Excellent book!!!

Another great hit.... Team Animal
My review of this book is not going to be very good. Not because the book is not good, but because it is a part of a series of which I am not familiar and I grew too tired of the story to finish it...
HOWEVER, I will say that this is a first in my reading of Urban Fiction: this book had very little sex in it. There is plenty of violence and rough language though. The story is rather complicated and includes back stories that the author does a decent job of reviewing in this edition, but it's stil

‘Be the person you wanna find…don’t be a nickel out here looking for a dime…statistics…’

Life in the hood is a game of truth or dare…truth is there’s bull&hit every day…dare is can you escape its evil clutches? K’wan has continued this saga of the days in the life of hood rats that scurry around dreaming of a better and brighter day away from the melee. Secondary characters have stepped into the spotlight in this installation. Porsha, Frankie, and Sahara have hustled their way into their own

Porsha, Sahara, and Frankie find out that the money they have been paying for rent, for the apartment they have been subleasing, hasn't been reaching the housing department. They have 72 hours to pay the rent or they will be evicted. I thought that was what this book was going to about, but I was wrong because there were way too many other things going on.

King James decided while serving a bid, that he would take over the streets upon his release....and that's just what he did. With his crew and

So this book certainly lives up to all the hype...the drama is off the chain and it's raining blood over the hood. When three roommates are delivered a 72-hour eviction notice, they take to the streets to earn the cash to save their ass. Their adventures involve bad ass thugs that make you put extra locks on the doors and bars on the windows. Gangsta's don't respect women and they definitely don't respect the law. The story is a real page turner but the large number of characters will keep your ...more

K'wan puts this book into a whole new ball game. The situation with Porsha, Frankie, and Sahara takes the book onto a whole new twist that made it all the more better. As far as Animal.........I can't get enough of him!!!!! I'm so ready for Don B. to get his, the things that he seems to get away with while dogging women is something that I want to see get dealt with. It's time for Don B. to cross the wrong woman and get paid. K'wan, I give you all the props, you are an excellent author and will ...more

Porsha, Frankie and Sahara, three friends living at room mates are the prime example of why you shouldn't live with friends. Especially friends that don't have a steady job, but hustle for the rent.

Man this shit was an amazing!! K'wan did his thing with this one, Animal is the dude. I can't wait till October 2nd for Animal to drop, it's about to be on! I hope Don B get's killed because I can't stand that dude. I don't want to give away the details, but if you haven't read this, get on it! In fact the whole Hood Rat series is worth reading trust me.

I loved the book, I'm happy Animal came back and I hope Gucci wakes up. And I really want Porsha and Alonzo to become a couple. I felt bad for Frankie and I want to read the next book but I don't know which one it is :)
