After watching the movie several times and playing the hell out of the video game, I finally got around to picking up the book that started it all.

First of all, let me just say that the film and game are only loosely based on this book. The basis pretty much ends with a gang from Coney Island going to a huge gang meeting that goes wrong. The gang finds itself stranded miles from home.

Unlike the film and game, the gang in the book are not very noble as a whole.

I will not give the story away as a whole, but there is much less action in the story than the game and movie. The author's comments seem to push toward him feeling quite the opposite.

It was a decent story, but not that exciting to me. It was fairly interesting. Just not quite as colorful as the media based on it. Huge fans of the film and games should give it a read.
