NOT FOR ME TO DEPRESSING...
Guest More than 1 year ago
as with all of his books, the 'heroes' (who don't fall under the general definition of hero) are people you find yourself rooting for even if they are criminals, pimps, drug addicts, or militant killers with a cause. you still want them to succeed in their endeavors, be it scoring their next hit or putting a 'hit' out on somebody. but alas, goines (who in his own life, dealt with these same subjects for real with minimal and off and on success) was a product of the times he lived in where blacks were dealing with the struggle for civil rights, better jobs and improvement of inner-city life. So in truth, he writes as a pessimist. His heroes end up taking the fall in some way, shape, or form because he himself did. still though, all of his books are gripping enough to keep you coming back for more.

WHAT A GREAT BOOK. I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK ALOT. AND I MUST SAY THAT IT WAS AN EYE OPENER TOO. IT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT REALLY GOES ON BEHIND THOSE IRON BARS. BUT DONALD GOINES PAINTS A PERFECT PICTURE FOR YOU IN THIS NOVEL. WHEN THE MAIN CHARACTER IS SENT TO JAIL, GOINES TAKES YOU THROUGH THE DAILY INS AND OUTS OF TRYING TO SURVIVE. I WAS SHOCKED AT THE END OF THE STORY. IT JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT YOU NEVER EVER REALLY KNOW A PERSON. YOU CAN THINK AND BELIEVE A PERSON IS YOUR FRIEND, BUT WHEN THEIR BACK IS UP AGAINST THE WALL, OR IF THEY HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN SOMETHING FOR YOU, OR THEMSELVES, LOOK OUT BECAUSE THERE WILL SURELY BE A SUPRISE FOR YOU AT THE END. A GREAT READ. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.

This book will answer all of your questions about jail. This book told the truth about the things happening behind the walls. You must prepare yourself for the things revealed about prison. I really enjoy reading the author books because he is speaking the truth, since he did experience prison life.

THIS BOOK DID NOT HOLD BACK ANYTHING. THIS BOOK SPOKE THE TRUTH AND WENT INTO DETAIL. DONALD GOINES GO WHERE NO WRITER DARES TO GO. I REALLY ENJOY HIS NOVELS BECAUSE HE SPEAKS THE TRUTH. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE PRISON THIS BOOKS LET YOU KNOW EVERYTHING, WITHOUT LEAVING ANY DETAILS OUT. YOU MUST PREPARE YOURSELF TO READ SOME OF THE SCENES WITNESSED IN PRISON.

This is a good book, especially if you have always wondered what goes on in prison. Mr. Goines tells the gritty details. It has a good start, middle and the ending will surprise you. I recommend.

Excellent depiction of urban street crime. Many modern novels have fallen short, but Goines remains the undisputed writer of true-to-life urban crime and the perils of street life. The closest novel to date has been 'Masks of the Darkest American Game' which is about life on the streets during the eighties and early nineties.

This book was on point even though it isn't better than Whoresome (which is a classic). But this is a must purchase if you're looking for the inside story on race relations that connects with the American judicial system and how Blacks/Latinos were treated differently than whites. Also, this book displayed a great job of character relationship between the prisoners in which details the harsh reality of settling in the prison population. Peace
