I 'd have rated this 5 stars and thought about adding it to the best-of-urban-fiction list that 's in my head if it ere n't for the problems.The good stuff first- Cash brought forth a great story.
* Some* parts of nove are realistic which always goes great with the genre even if it does n't ften go hand-in-hand.The bad stuff ( hold on to your hats)- I 'll begi with the editing.
You may know that this ook that has been republishe by at least three othe people would n't b oo many problems right?
What author with at least two books in the genre does n't have a " publishing company "?
Do n't tart a fucking " publishing company " ( usually with a dum ass name) if you ca n't properly publish a book!
( Oh yeah, I could n't ut my whole name out there either if this was by work so I do n't blame ya 'll there.) Three editors and some piss poor editing.We have a book filled with misspellings, extra words, deleted words, run-on sentences, half sentences and sometimes ess than half a sentence, misplaced punctuation, the whole nine.
The dedication is this ( and I quote): " THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED TO ALL MY URBAN AND STREET LIT AUTHORS WHOSE STORIES DEPICT THE STREETS AS THEY REALLY ARE.
Anothe sill part is that this dedication makes a reader assume that this is comin to e that real shit right?
And onl time I checked, I hink he word Cash and his oh-so-capable editors wanted to use was 'abode' and not 'adobe'.
I should alread see an author making that mistake in the grip of writing but an editor?
Just in case nyone wants to assume I do n't understand my slang- nope.
Tacky and trashy.This goes back to the editing but I 'm moving through the nove in order so stick with me.
For whatever reason the " editor ( s) " REALLY like italics.
With some mentoring/experience Cash could be a great writer.
And, judging by past authors and their experiences he 'll eep on using the same non-editors and churning out the same garbag and he 'll be like a gerbil on a wheel- never going anywhere but talking all the while.
With to many shitty authors out there now it 's sad to find good one and have it all fucked up because of some stupid hit like tha.
