This book is NASTY. It's an attempt to capture you with erotic prose but lacks the creativity to be erotica. It reads more like Penthouse forum. The sybolism is bogged down and has no flow. Even keeping with the context of the time period you can see the author lacks the ingenuity to come up with a better example of racial disharmony. The protagonist, a 14 yr old 'slut' by her own definition uses her body like that of an old whore past her prime. He sexual conquest lack the sensuality to make it a fun read. In fact it is tedious to get through. Also, the ending has no punch and you can tell he had become bored with the story and wanted to end the agony. Read only if you have nothing else to do.

GROOVE, BANG AND JIVE AROUND has rightfully become a classic - it is
sexy, deep, and contemporary --crossing all racial and class lines. It
puts us all in our proper place with humor and hurt. Steve Cannon is a
sort of "high priest" of underground classic works which seem
to travel aboveground. He is a great teacher for all. It is wonderful to
see G,B & JA on ebook. Read it, folks.
