The only problem is, the jacket copy states this is Volume One of the Doggy Tales. Never name your first of anything Volume One if you truly do not have Volume Two in the can, ready to go. I've noticed this problem in the arts since...well, I'm not really able to spin Listen Without Prejudice Volume Two, am I?

Snoop and his co-author paint a vivid, albeit MTV-lite, picture of growing up in the inner city; making for the armchair reader an entertaining journey into that reality. And they have the...more

I think is a really great book to read if your not a old person and you like gangster books.

The book that I think young teens should read is a book that goes by the name Love Don't Live Here No More. The author of this book is one of the best writers in my own mind, Snoop Dogg and David E. Talbert. The central idea that these two amazing authors was trying to get across to people was stand strong and don't let any thing get the best of you.

This book has a lot of thing for you as a reader to know about what things go on out in the streets also with that person. Some things that go on...more

What I think about the book it's good I like it because it show the life that he had when he was younger the hardship he had to go through just to make it. Its about a little boy who lives with his my mom and little brother they living in a place that isn't so good. They are living there and they must deal with the what they have and where they live. I think it's wrong what he does just so he can have good stuff and help his mom out but he does it so they can live better. It show how he get invo...more

I got this thinking it was a Snoop biography, but it's not. It's the story of Ulysses, Bing and their single Mama growing up in a Long Island 'hood during the eighties. Cited as 'the first in a drama-filled series of novels' it is actually the only one published (that I can find) and ends abruptly almost like Snoop got bored and decided to go do something else! Overall the book jogs along and is a fairly easy read, except for the use of slang that can be a little confusing. I guess it was some s...more

I noticed in a journal that I read this. I don't remember a single thing about it except thinking I liked the word usage and that it was kinda bad.

Oh yeah... and there was a bunch of stuff were people were trying to make each other eat their vegetables!

I'm trying to get an idea of what "Street Lit" is all about. I don't want to be too quick to judge, so I'm leaving my reservations for another couple of titles, at which point I'll summarize (my disappointment may just be with Snoop Dizzle's "writing" style).
Lschiffler
I thought it was good. I was dissapointed that there were no more books to follow this one as the title suggests, (volume 1). It tells a tale I felt could be similar to his life growing up on the streets.
Claire Campbell
A poignant view of a young man struggling to make his way in a volatile environment...and become the best rapper that the world has ever heard. I see a Hollywood blockbuster in the making. Play on, playa.

Far from my usual taste, but after I saw this in Borders the other day I couldn't resist seeing what kinds of wisdom a book co-authored by Snoop Dogg would bring.
Charley
I must say that I expected more from award-winning playwright and co-author David E. Talbert. Where's the quality control?
Rachel
I have to say although I think it killed a few brain cells, it was kind of entertaining. Yes I said it, kind of entertaining.
Chris
It was a good book for anyone who likes gangsta books with action an if you don't like this book you ain't all day.
