This book is a good read, and its entertaining. If you into reading about street life and love and things like that, you will enjoy this book. Basically it discuses a chance meeting between two people, an encounter that forces them together and a issue (him lovin the streets) that separates them, only neither of them realized that they each left with traces of the others heart. The story unfolds in a manor that will have you flipping pages ahead with anticipation. You will enjoy it if you enjoy hood books with a lil love and survival interwind therein.

The book Life is a wonderful read. The author describes situations in very good detail. As your reading the book it's like your watching it on a big screen.I really enjoyed this book. I went to the Barnes and Noble book store to purchase another book and found this book. I almost put it back and I am very glad I did not because this book is a real eye opener.

I heard from people and looked at some of the reviews nd I actually thought it was going to be really good as people were saying but I didn't like it. The story didn't get interesting until Life gets shot then arrested and is on trial nd that's like towards the end. And remember this is just MY OPION to the book im not saying dont read it because you might find it good

I am an avid reader and have read them all from the classic Coldest Winter Ever to the new up and coming first time writers and this book by far in my opinion is the best yet. It was so good that I dreamed about L Thugstin after finishing the book. The author definitely articulates his story in a way that depicts all aspects of Black lives in White America. He shows how black women are 'hated, degraded and underestimated' but yet are the birth of all humanity. How black women possess the intelligence to rule the world and yet our own men do not listen to us until it is too late and they are at the mercy of the white man. If you are a reader like you profess then cop the book you will not be disappointed!!!

Leo Sullivan's debut novel is one based on the animosities, monstrosities, frustrations and a seemingly twisted fate of being Black in America. The author holds nothing back. He expresses the turmoil, hate and dark fate that is promised to Black Americans. Yet, despite the negativity and tradition of oppression.... the resilience, power and stamina of the Black race is beautifully portrayed. The author spotlights poverty, crime, corruption and questions social issues among gender, disease and discrimination in Black America. The author's stage for this story is the street hustle and the web in which it seems most black folk, no matter what their social status, are entangled into. Your main characters: Hope Evans(a black female from the Pork and Beans Projects in Miami), a law student attending college a Black University, Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU), with strong a resolve to change the world. Life 'L' Thugstin, a son of a rich, scheming, church-hustling preacher. Life's mother died bringing him into the world, thus signifying his name. He turns to a 'life' of crime only to fall prey to the judicial system. Hope and Life meet under derest conditions and upon immediate contact (unknown to them) Hope's destiny is now spun into protecting Life from the muscular octopus grasps of the law. The author cleverly uses the street life, college life and mainstream circumstances to weave an interesting tale of fate. The story is written in first person of the main characters, Hope and Life explicitly opinionating their thoughts. It's a tale written with a message of warnings, wisdom, determination, street 'life' education and hope.
