If you didn't know that these guys were based on real Philadelphia politicos, wise-guys and the assorted wannabes of both, it would only be a little less funny. Lopez describes scenes that you know happened, in a way that doesn't make you want to be there, as much as make you want to tell people you were there.
It's all very "inside", but too real to be dismissed as caricature. There are probably guys in your city that you will think are guys you know, thanks to the personality of Lopez's writi
Very funny book; filled with local Philadelphia color. It had me chuckling on the train. Fair warning: the book reveals some typical inner-city prejudices and the coarse language that goes along with them - this book is not for kids.

I enjoyed that it was set in Philly. so a nice home feel to it. the story was not bad, but sometimes it felt like a chunck of the story was missed.
I liked the dialogue and the Philadelphia scenery but that's pretty much it. Disappointing read since Third and Indiana was so good.

This book started well but then I lost interest. Too trite, too many Philly stereotypes. Didn't finish it.
This was just fun to read.
