Lamont "Hood" Mason is a fearless 19-year-old gangsta who was born and raised in the projects of Brooklyn, New York. He was an abandoned child who roamed the city streets and fought hard for survival. The only thing constant in his young life was the safety of a Brownsville barbershop owned by a father figure called Fat Daddy. The barbershop is where Hood comes of age, but cutting hair isn't the only thing Fat Daddy has going on. His daughter, Egypt, is the love of Hood's young life and the one person whose dreams of a stable future can lead him off the grimy urban corners and out of the hustling life.
But when Fat Daddy crosses paths with Xanbar, a notoriously brutal drug kingpin, his vices threaten to bring death down on the family Hood loves. In an effort to protect his own, Hood and his best friend and hustling partner, Dreko, take to the streets on a bloody mission that doesn't go exactly as planned. Hood returns to find his world turned upside down by a wave of sex, violence, and betrayal. No longer the starving kid on the street, now he's a man seeking vengeance and retribution, and he might be forced to choose between bending and breaking as he picks up the shattered pieces of his life one by one.
Good book ,but very disturbing book. Give it a try, but a dark story with dark characters.
The book was just ok.. took a minute to get through the story. but over all it was Good.
Where does Hood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have to say at least at top three! All also written by Noire!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Hood?
I think the description of his childhood and baby brother. Through the reader I was able to see them in the cold and the steam leaving their mouths, with no jackets, and hungry. My heart ached for them and the situation with their mother.
Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?
Hood of course. I like the way he handled his revenge.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I wish we heard more about the Grandmother and Aunt. I wanted to know more about why they weren't welcome into the house and out the cold. Howcome when they knocked no one answered.
(BIT OF A SPOILER)
I also don't know How or what made Hood a killer soooo young. I mean he found a way to kill some niggas and took it. They were strangers too. To me it was a bit weird to see him just dead this dude and then go to the barber shop with balls and demand respect and a job.
Love this book.. I will read other books by this author.
Check it out will not disappointed
Hood was the truth...true to his word and the game. Everyday hood shyt wrote real.
Good book. Keeps your interest the whole time. If you like urban books. This is one to add to your collection
I read Hood many years ago when it was first released and I loved the book. I decided to purchase it as an audiobook because Cary Hite was narrating it. I'm so glad I did. This was even better as an audio book! Cary Hite is so amazing. He brings every character to life and makes listening so much fun!
I don't know why it took me so long to listen to this book. it was excellent! great story and it was well reas
loved this book!!! I was listening to it most of the time at work. I could have got in trouble but it was so good i couldnt stop listening 100 stars if i could!!!
I can't give it any stars. This is the nastiest book. A kid making a young kid give him head. Just f nasty. If you like books with kids are molested this I is your book. I will be calling audible to get my money back. The book made me vomit.
