    One thought on “What's Really Hood!: A Collection of Tales from the Streets”

    1. Being that I've been extremely disenchanted with almost the entire urban fiction genre lately I fully expected to be bored through these stories. I'm very, very tired of reading about characters and only getting a sense of who they are from the brand names they wear and their measurements. I know for a fact that there are authors in this genre with enough intelligence and talent to fully round out a character. Why are they stifling themselves like this? It's almost as tacky as inserting theirsel [...]

    2. In my opinion, the two biggest problems facing the black community today are, first and foremost, Tyler Perry (this can't be emphasized enough, he's just that awful) and secondly Urban Fiction. This book is just the bottom of the barrel of an already worthless genre. What a piece of absolute shit! The unabashed worship of mindless materialism is by far the most disgusting aspect, of not only this particular book, but the entire genre. More attention is given to page long descriptions of cars and [...]

    3. Not Really Hood“What’s Really Hood” is a compilation of five short stories depicting hood life. In the first story, ‘Black is Blue,’ Victor L. Martin relates the story of Tyrone aka Polo, a thug vying for the love of Desiree, a legal assistant trying to make a better life for herself, which includes staying away from bad boys. She is involved with Lamar, Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes. Looks can be deceiving. The second story is a tale of two people; Wiz, who is looking to come up in life selling [...]

    4. I HAVE TO SAY THAT I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED WHEN I RECEIVED THIS BOOK.I LOVE READING SHORT STORIES AND WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS COLLECTIONERE ARE 5 STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION AND EACH ONE WAS AN EXCELLENT READ. EACH STORY HAD ITS OWN IDEATION OF WHAT'S REALLY HOOD! IN THE STORY "BLACK IS BLUE" THE STORYLINE FOCUSES ON THE POTENTIAL LOVE INTERESTS FROM DIFFRENT ENDS OF THE CLASS SPECTRUMN LOVE BE TRUE FOR A CORPORATE WOMAN AND A THUG? THIS READ WILL LET YOU KNOW. IN "THE P IS FREE" A YOUN [...]

    5. Ok ladies and gentlemen, it's hard for me to write such reviews so here goesI DID NOT LIKE IT! It pissed me off because it was soooo stereotypical, the characters were out of an old tore down cracker jacks box lost in a 1978 Duster. No depth , the stories were unbelievable and I grew up on the North End of Detroit ! I’m sorry it did not hold my attention, I had to force myself to read it, because It was given to me to do so, one redeeming thing I will say is that if the authors took their time [...]

    6. Out of the 5 short stories in this anthology, they were all OK.Actually, the first one had a LOT going on. A lot of characters, subplots Too much.If I had to pick a favorite? Wahida Clark's was (surprisingly) not it. Hers was OK. It ended somewhat abruptly.The P Is Free would probably be it.There are better collections of urban short stories. But if you have nothing else2.5 stars

    7. What’s Really Hood! is a collection of Tales from the Streets, comprising five fascinating stories of varying lengths in one satisfying book. I’ve never read street tales before, and I’m not familiar with the language or ways of the streets, except inasmuch as I’ve heard them on TV. So I wasn’t sure how I’d like this book, but I was pleased to have the chance to try something new. Hachette sent me an advanced reading copy in readiness for the editor’s blog tour and launch-date cele [...]

    8. I USUALLY DON'T LIKE ANTHOLOGIES , BUT THIS ONE WAS PRETTY GOOD :)(: EACH STORY HAD IT'S OWN UNIQUENESS. SOME STORIES MADE ME LAUGH AND OTHERS HAD ME LIKE DAMN DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN SMHSICALLY !!!! "What's Really Hood" is a compilation of five short stories depicting hood life.In the first story, `Black is Blue,' Victor L. Martin relates the story of Tyrone aka Polo, a thug vying for the love of Desiree, a legal assistant trying to make a better life for herself, which includes staying away fro [...]

    9. Every time I interview at my library with a certain department, I’m always asked, “So what urban fiction have you read?” Since I always had to say, “Um… none,” I decided I might as well give it a shot and I always figure when delving into a new genre, anthologies are the way to go. I found “What’s Really Hood” while shelving and thought BINGO! It took me a while to actually get around to reading it and even when I started, I found myself sidetracked by other books so I wouldn [...]

    10. I'm new to the Urban Fiction genre so this was a perfect book for me. With all of the different stories I was able to get a glimpse of the different styles of writing in this genre. Up to this point I had only read young adult Urban Fiction, and after reading this book I know now that I enjoy the ones directed toward a more mature audience.I definantly liked some stories more than others, but overall they were all pretty entertaining. There was a lot of action, sex, and unexpected endings. Some [...]

    11. I really can't get into collorbations. This one was not so good. I probably liked two stories out of all of them. If this wasn't a audiobook, I would never gotten through it. Audiobook Chapter 16, and the last Chapter 26. I have used my first and last credit on Audible for nothing. Read at your own risk.What is starting to kill me most is. All of the good authors that I have come to love are taking another route in how they write books it is not necessary. Another thing is. they should be more p [...]

    12. I give this one 3 stars because it was just okay. The stories I thought were fairly interesting and would even make great novellas: "Black Is Blue" by Martin, "The P Is Free" by Teague, "All for Nothing" by Trump/Jihad, and "Makin' Endz Meet" by Clark. Though I could have given 4 stars for the 4 stories I liked, there were some things about the tales that I did not find interesting and therefore, I'll just have to call this one average = 3/5 stars.

    13. I won this book through First Reads Program. Thanks for giving me the chance to read it!I love Urban Fiction and this book kept me interested throughout each story. Some had very surprising endings but I hated the ending of the last story. This was a very easy read. I would recommend to other urban fiction readers.

    14. THIS BOOK WAS OFF THE METER IF I COULD GIVE IT 15 STARS I WOULD. THE AUTHORS WENT HARD WITH THIS SHORT STORY WITH THEIR CHARACTERS THERES NOTHING ELSE I NEED TO SAY ONTHER THEN IT WAS GOOD AND SAD I WANTED TO READ MORE ABOUT WHAT HAPPEN

    15. The book is so good. Its really what goes on in the hood no matter where your from. Wahida Clark and the others really know how to paint crystal clear images from the stories Everyone should check them out!

    16. I actually entered to win this book for my mom, and she read it. She said that is was "gritty and street" That is had alot of "drama", which she loves. She also felt that the short storis were somewhat un-finished and would have been more complete with longer stories.

    17. This book contains several short stories about scenarios that might occur in the 'hood'. I found this book to be full of sex and profanity. I did not enjoy reading this book, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

    18. All These Stories Were BULLSHIT Even Wahida's . & This Is Coming From A HUGE Fan Of Her Work !The Only Story That Was Readable Was Jihad's All For Nothing.The Book Had A Shit Load Of Grammar & Spelling Mistakes & The Stories Were Meaningless !I Would Definitely Pass ! ♥

    19. I won this book through First Reads Program. My first book I had Won. I couldn't wait to start it.I had a hard time putting this book down. It only took me a few days to finish it. Thanks for giving me the chance to read this book.

    20. i felt like i read 5 books. They're really amazing writers. The story's were exciting & eventful.

    21. Good amount of smut, urban culture & action. Stories are a little dated & characters are stereotypical but I still enjoyed it.

    22. Good read but was really disappointed that none of the stories had a happy ending. I guess that's how it goes in the hood.

    23. This is the first book I read by Wahida Clark. I couldn't get into this book. I may read another book by this author right now I'm not sure.
