Trapped in a web of deceit

I will start out by saying I was a lot Leary of reading this book by a rapper who is adding "author" to the resume. I will follow up by saying I was pleasantly surprised by the story line. The characters… the turn of events were surprisingly unexpected. While some I knew, others were very much a shock.

We meet Jake who is doing time in the infamous jail at Rikers Island. When he receives a death note he can't pin point where it comes from as he has done lots of dirt in t

I'd been planning on reading this for awhile and I finally had it mailed to me two weeks or so ago. It worked out that I could read it right away so I started.
Invincible isn't a bad book. It's unrealistic but a lot of urban fiction is. That part didn't really get to much too much even though I prefer my fiction as realistic as possible usually.
There are some small details that would really have helped the story flow better - the use of more contractions, less exclamation points in character conv

I don't normally read hood literature but being a Styles P fan I decided to give it a shot. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It kept me engaged the whole way through and was full of twists and turns but formed a cohesive and intelligently written story when all said and done. I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the genre.

This book is effortless, and so good at what it does. It draws you in so quickly and you ride with the characters every step of the way trying to imagine what else could go wrong for the main characters. There is no letting up with this book, ever page is dripping with juice and makes you want to take a stab at the life of a man on the run from, well EVERYBODY

Styles P knows how to create an interesting story line. Authentically street, I never saw a phony moment in the book. The omniscient narrator sounding like a street dude through me off a little bit (not used to that), but I guess it makes sense. The brother effectively diversified his artistry with this book. Pinero the Novelist!

I loved the book. It was not graphic, not a lot of swearing. Good plot. Mystery so to speak. The ending left me hanging. I think there maybe a second part? I went to a book signing and met Styles P. I am not a rap, but he has shown me that he can write! Please do more!

I read the book in one day! It kept me that interested.

When I found out Styles P wrote a book I wanted to read it, wondering if it would be good. Now that I've finished the book it was insane I loved it definitely a good read.
