Dogism by Marc Anthony was straight garbage to me, and what baffles me even more is that people on amazon.com rated that book all five stars. I was also highly disappointed with The Hustlers Wife by Nikki Turner, a lot of people recommended it and I was let down

Anybody can write an Amazon review. As an author I can tell you that many authors have thier friends and family write reviews, and some even stoop to making up names and writing their own. And I agree...it's garbage.

not but I'm saying it wasn't just a couple of people that said it was good, it was a lot of people, because that's one of the reasons why I wanted to read it, that and a lot of people on this message board recommended it also, as apart of the book of the month.

The Coldest Winter ever, I just wasnt feeling it, it was wayyyyy too overrated, my friend was like "you HAVE to read this book its better than Flyy Girl blah blah blah" It just seemed soo..."mainstream urban gangsta girl" I hated it.

I wasn't going to comment until someone posted that B-More careful was a bad book are u crazy I understand I have to respect your opinion but I have read almost over a hundred books in the last 2 years half of them being street novels and this book is so damn ,I just love it It is one of the only books that compare to the coldest winter ever in the sense of content and moral.Bad Girlz was okay Try reading his latest book Never Go Home Again maybe im just impartial because I really like Triple Crown Publications Books One day I hope to get down for my crown.

I read his latest book never go home again it it touched me. I didn't like the ending of the book, but it was a good ebding because it was realistic. Shannon Holmes is an excellent author and I recommend all his books especially to thoes who are having a hard time in life and thse who are living the "fast life" and street life.

I have Omar Tyree's "What They Want" sitting on my desk. Had it sitting here for the past 6 months. But I haven't read it b/c everyone says that it's a slow book and hard to get into. To those who have read it, how was it?
