    Karma aint no joke

    To me the book was kind of boring at 1st but things finally started to come around making this a 'page turner.' My favorite is the end when Cam finally get his. To me his punishment was worse than death.

    Touching book

    This book is just touching and i think Young teens should read this book and the sequal Blinded. So they can know what goes on in the real world and how live is, so when they get older they would know.

    5 Stars for the title 1 for the book

    It's like someone who is out of touch with 'The Life', is trying to write about it with a sprinkle of outdated slang to make the characters seem more believable. I was very disapointed. I haven't read 'Blinded' so I'm hoping that this was just a rush-job sequel and 'Blinded' is much,much, much better.

    Not what I expected

    The book itself deserved 3 stars but because it was a sequel I expected more. From the summary on the back of the book you would have thought Cam got it at the end, and Yatta got his revenge. It didn't happen that way. The book was basically about El'san and Sweetie. And really the book wasn't all that 'Grimy'. I have read alot of 'Urban' books and believe me this book is NOT Grimy. (And the ending was corny)

    the book should have been called boring!!

    i thought yatta was going to get his revenge on cam but all he did was talk. the book was really about sweetie and el'san. i really didn't care for the first one blinded either.

    I enjoyed this book

    A fast read, I was excited to know what would happen to Cam in this book. He was vicious and heartless. I was surprised when he had to rely on his Stepdad at the end though. Kenny was special also. I knew that he was gay, but he should have advised Shavonee that he was because he messed up her life. I think this was a good Part 2 and it keeps you interesting to the very end !

    IT WAS BOOK YOU COULDN'T LIVE HOME WITHOUT IT

    WHEN READING GRIMEY YOU CANNOT SIT THE BOOK DOWN CAUSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. IF YOU LOVE BOOKS I RECOMMEND YOU DON'T LEND IT OUT, THE PERSON MAY NOT WANT TO RETURN IT. SO JUST CONTINUE READING AND STAY FOCUS.

    Great ending

    I liked this book and liked how it ended. I am glad how Cam went out, and eye for an eye is not always the answer.. But why did they do Granny like that???

    horrible is more like it!

    This book was not all that. it just didn't live up to the expectation or tone that was set by blinded. Reading this book will put you to sleep. i always try to support the young bucks but a bad story is just that, a bad story. If I had to reccommend a good read I would suggest you read, Without Saying Goodbye, written by kendra L. Willis. This girl gives you a realistic point of view of the life of a seventeen year old girl, growing up in oakland, ca.I loved this book, but Grimy, I could do with out

    A Must Read Book!!!

    The frist book blinded wasn't good I'm not gonna lie I felt that the book was very slow moving when it was time to get to the point and that it really didn't keep you on your toes I even had to skip a few chapters jus to get to the point of the book. But on the other hand I did pick you the follow up book and was surprised at how good it was it may not keep you on your toes but it defintly makes you want to read more and see what happeneds. It's turly a tale of love, revenge, and street life!!

    If I say its good, take my word for it

    Ms.Williams did her thing with this book. I enjoyed reading every part of it. Blinded was the bomb so i knew when i purchased that book, i had to go ahead and get the sequel. 'GRIMEY' was the next level.You'll have to read it yourself,though. Take my word for it.

    Kashamba's writing style will transcend genres!

    I applaud Kashamba for the usage of true-to-life language of the streets and scenerios that make this story one of the top urban books on the market right now. Welcome to the world of Yatta, one of the lead characters. His mind is no different than yours and even if you are not from the ghetto. When you lose your sister or brother, there is just no telling what the realms of your mind will lead you to do upon avenging a senseless murder of a loved one. Grimey is as good as it gets. This book kept my attention throughout one reading. I could not put this book down as I have had to do with some urban novels lately I mistakenly purchased in shrink wrap from street vendors and only had a book cover and back blurb to go by. Yikes! I will never make this mistake again. I must truly read reviews from now on. I am glad I took a chance upon hearing about this author's writing style. It's all true. Grimey is one of those books you will have to hold on to if you purchase it, and if you are lucky to meet this authoress on the rise, do get it autographed. Don't say I didn't tell you so. Kashamba is on her way to the very top. Watch this!!!! I believe this author will transcend genres, and readers have yet to see the span of writing talent from Kashamba that will easily lend to other works that hold equal or greater weight. Readers should not typecast this author as an urban author only. The Queen of Urban Fiction should not be the only title affixed to this author. Her work is beyond this genre of writing already. We have a gifted fiction writer who has the kind of discipline and mastery to teach other urban writers how to hold down a perfect urban book, and keep the suspense of readers at bay until the last page. Her work is professionally edited, and has sort of a genius-like outline from start to finish. There is great potential in Kashamba's writing style that will lend to the mainstream market if her work is scripted for a screenplay. A memoir or epic novel will set this author apart from the current trends. This is my prediction for this talented writer. I look forward to all of her works. Again, this one authoress to watch. After over 1000 reviews of my own, and someone who rarely posts on online bookstores, I felt it was incumbent of me upon my enjoyment of this book so much, to take the time to give credit where it is due. Brilliant work here!!!!

    GRIMEY by Queen of Hardcore Urban Fiction

    GRIMEY is truly the only appropriate title for this novel. The characters stoop low to a level that is unscruptulous and unrelenting. The story is centered around a young woman named Mona, who is brutually murdered at the hands of her gangster boyfriend. Her family seeks & achieves her revenge - but NOT the way you would think. This novel shows the ruthlessness & desperate low levels people(that includes hustlers up to and including church sanctified folk) would stoop in order to maintain comfort for themselves. The book is written with messages of wisdom and encouragement to readers (should they want/need inspiration). This book is the sequel to BLINDED, which I strongly recommend to be read as well. GRIMEY is a movie waiting to happen. It's a fast read because the characters attract & grab you into their lives as you read.

    It isn't what you expect it to be

    I couldn't wait until Grimey came out, but when I did I was somewhat disappointed. Yeah Yatta was determined to find out who was responsible for his sister's death, but it seem like the book took you somewhere else to another story and other characters, it took a backseat to Blinded. Blinded was off the hook but Grimey is more of a catch up and you will buy it because of Blinded but when you read Grimey it's not all that, it doesn't keep your interest of the story from Blinded!
