More About This Book

Overview

Trap House is an unflinching account of the goings on of an Atlanta drug den and the lives of those who frequent it. Its cast of characters include the Notorious P.I.G., the proprietor of the house, who uses his power to satisfy his licentious fetishes. Of his customers, there's Wanda, an exotic dancer who loathes P.I.G., but only tolerates him because he has the best dope in town. Wanda's boyfriend Mike is the owner of an upscale strip club, as well as a full time pimp.

Tiffany and Marcus are the teenage couple who began frequenting the Trap House after snorting a few lines at a party. Can their love for each other withstand the demands of their fledging addiction, or will it tear them apart?

P.I.G.'s wife Blast, doorman Earl and a host of other colorful characters round out the inhabitants of the Trap House.

Trap House is the bastard child of real life and the author's vivid imagination. Its author, Sa'id Salaam, paints a graphic portrait of the inner-workings of an under-world. He takes you so close you can almost hear the sizzle of the cocaine as it's smoked—almost smell the putrid aroma of crack as it's exhaled. Yet for all the grit and grime, Trap House has the audacity to be a love story. Through the sordid sex and brutality is an underlying tale of redemption and self empowerment. Trap House drives home the reality that everyone is a slave to something.

    Underworld “Trap House” is about the inner working

    Underworld

    “Trap House” is about the inner workings of a crack house including the dealers and the addicts who inhabit it. P.I.G. owns and operates crack houses all over town. He has a strange sexual fetish that all the crack heads are subjected to. He degrades the addicts every chance he gets to satisfy himself and so they can get their next hit including “sweeping up.”

    Although I felt as if I had read it before, Sa'id Salaam’s “Trap House” is a good read. It has many characters; each one is very distinctive. It gives readers a look into the lives of a crack head and the dealings that are made in order to satisfy that need. It includes sex, drugs, money, brutality, anger, disgust, sympathy and a little respect along the way.

    Just finished Reading Trap House! this book takes people on a journey as to what goes on behind closed doors of a trap house. If the trap house is lead by P.I.G then people are in for a sick ride. P.I.G was a sick man who makes the drug addicts do sick things just so that he can get off and they can get their hit. The book also shows how a good girl can totally go bad, poor Tiffany hanging out with the wrong crowd... mainly her boyfriend leads her on the journey of her life. Will she hold on and take that journey for a ride or will she get mixed up with P.I.G. In reading this story, you got a feel for who the characters were and you soon realize that Tiffany is in way over her head. Though a work of fiction the book gives you a pretty good idea as to what the Trap House is like. This was a good book!

    What a great time!

    What a ride! I could not put it down so much happening but this authir was able to keep the story and characters together. I wonder will there be a part 2. Although all plot were wrapped up nicely, he left a nice ending for speculation or an opening for book 2.
