Heard and read a lot of different opinions on this particular book and I've come to my own conclusion upon finishing it. I LOVED IT! I like nothing more than being engulfed in a good book and this is a perfect example of such. I definitely recommend this book to the reader that doesn't mind reading hardcore street stories.

What a rambling mess this book is. It is poorly written; just some guy rambling on about his life. Each chapter is the same...got into a fight, saw an attractive girl, stole something, blah blah, blah. The only interesting part is the murder mystery and that is such a small part of the book.

Thoroughly Entertaining. Whether you want to believe what is written in this book or not, it definitely captures the attention of the reader until the very end. Though I did enjoy the read, I still feel there are many unanswered questions concerning this murder mystery.

I truely loved this book. It was a little rough around the edges for my taste but I got totally immersed in this story. After all isn't that why we read books?

...RobynKOk, This book captures your attention from start to finish. And I found myself reading the book in just two days because I just couldn't put the book away. Every chapter left me wanting to know more about this character and his life. A must read and I hope to read more from this Author in the future.....RobynK

After reading this book I could see how it would appeal to a certain audience, predominately high T level men and hormonal teenagers who enjoy dirty sex and gratuitous violence. It's a street book obviously written by a street person who in my opinion, needs to hone their literary skills. However,with that being said, I feel the author accomplished their goal by delivering an interesting story that kept me going until the very ambiguous end.

I do not beleive one thing this man wrote about. The story is unbelievable. All it talkes about is sex ,drugs and car crashes. He would be dead by now and just try to find him on the internet I couldn't!!!

Anthony.... This book had a profound affect on me in quite a few ways, one of them being the way the main character was treated while growing up. I too experienced the same pain. Being a Long Island native, I followed this murder mystery from day one and was very intrigued. The only drawback is that I wish the author elaborated more on the events that took place at Oak Beach, I feel that there's something he's not telling us...

I could strongly relate to the character Vito because I went through the same problems growing up as a kid. I really enjoyed this book a lot.

I was browsing around and saw the front cover of this book and gave it a shot. I read the first few chapters and thought I was reading a Neil Simon work. It picked up some steam the deeper I got into the book and was a bit taken away by his life experiences. The author couldn't get any more graphic and was very blunt as it pertains to his life. To be honest, it was interesting and kept me wanting to read more which I have problems with other books I have read recently. A different experience that's for sure.--- Mike C.

This book falls into the category of a sleeper. I definitely didn't expect the read that I read but was pleasantly surprised. I'm giving this one a thumbs up!
