Listening to this on audio (ipod) from the library.

It started out real slow, but when I got to the part of the book where he is talking to one of the women he slept with after a book signing in Harlem...she was trying to convince Shareef Crawford to write a novel about a hood thug in jail. I like how he uses the contrast of hip hop music (only people can handle the club songs and not the revoluntary, historical stuff) and as a novelist (only focus on what is entertaining and sales, not the surre

So had this book for a while, even checked out for a friend of mine but never got around to reading it..To be honest the first chapter really didnt grab me as it starts off in a warehouse with some thugs torturing and killing a man..You find out later who, what and why but it wasnt the best intro..I would have preferred Omar Tyree just start the book by introducing one of the most interesting male characters in a hood novel ever--the main character of the book, best-selling romance author Sharee ...more

THIS BOOK TOOK ME BY SURPRISE> THE FIRST CHAPTER I HAD TO PUT IT DOWN> I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ANOTHER GANGSTA STREET VIOLENCE NOVEL> and when i received the same book a few months later as a gift from my book club, i decided maybe i should read it a little further.
Im glad i did!
Drama, intensity, on the edge of my seat, yelling at a book good.
So much about this story had me going. From why he would go to jail to meet with someone about a future book with so much little back ground was ama

I had purchased this book quite some time ago and had not read it because it seemed that Omar had changed up the entire demeanor of his books. Whereas I like the 'real deal' urban books.....it just seems that his has taken a turn away from where he began. Either way, overall the book was good once you got past the slow start and could begin to relate to the characters.

I ended up liking this book a lot more than I thought I would. I almost gave up on it on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, it turned out to be more insightful and engrossing as I read on.

This book took me a minute to finish reading it. It didn't really flow like his other books.
Christine
Suprisingly good. Omar took a different lane with his writing & I wasn't disappointed.
