    GREAT BOOK

    Absolute must read. I read a wide variety of books (Dean Koontz, Noire, Walter Dean Myers, and Buster Onley to name a few) and this is one of the best book i've ever read. Very well written, great sub-plots, better plots. Get to the bookstore and buy it NOW!

    A HOT BOOK!!! Must read.

    This was the first book I read by K'Wan. It was crazy!!! I usually don't get into the gangsta type books, but it was better than expected. The characters in the book were so real it was scary. Everyone underestimated Shai's street credibility, but he was the strongest mentally and only the strong survive.

    GREAT READ

    This book was great. K'Wan has a knack for drawing people into his stories and I felt like I was there every step of the way. Keep it coming K'Wan I would love to read more.

    Return of the king

    This book was hot to death. It reminded me of the godfather with an urban twist. You can't go wrong with one of K'wan's books. If urban lit has it king, then he is it! Long live the king!!!! P.S. can anyone confirm the rumor that he's coming out with a sequal to Gangsta????

    Another winner!

    You've heard the saying, 'Harlem has the best ball' well the rest of the statement is 'HARLEM HAS THE BEST AUTHORS'. K'wan Foye flashes his gift and has penned another bestseller AGAIN!!!!!! He hits it hard and real in 'HOODLUM', no bars hold! True to life and gritty with all its realities, personal decisions are made by the Clark family for survival. K'wan took no prisoners. The pages are permeated with cold and calculating characters.... and love mixed in there too??!! How'd he do it... you've got to read that for yourself. (Personally, I think Kwan is Donald Goines grandson...there may be not truth to this, but Kwan definitely has picked up the mantel from Donald Goines!) Goodpeoples ARC Book Club Inc.
