There's a new author on the scene and his name is Boston George. "Knee Deep In the Game" is an excellent read. The story pulls you in from the very beginning and keeps you until the very end, wanting more. I read this book in a day, it was so hard to put it down. If it's street drama you want, this book is it! As you read you will be in the center of all of the happenings as it's going down. If you don't know what street life and hustling is about after reading this book you will have a pretty good idea. I will definitely be on the look out for more great books from this "Awesome" author who is off to a "WONDERFUL" start. BG you put it down and I can't wait to see what's next. I will definitley be recommending this to all of my reading friends who loves a good book to read!!!!

I am aware that this is fiction but this book had so many wtf moments in it I lost count, I got it cause of the reviews, last time I trust u ppl. The story line was ok but alot of the circumstances made no sense, like y he aint let da dominican chick leave? y he only spoke about his lil sister when he said he had younger brothers and sisters? y as soon as he got put on n got some clothes he became arrogant like he always had it like that? and from the beginning i thought he was a young teen then to find out he 18 all i can say is WTF.

This book was by far one of the worst I have ever read, honestly I would have rather read Twilight at least maybe then the characters would have been developed a bit better. The book is about 250 pages long and it took me about an hour to read it, which is sad. It's filled with despicable acts of a young and "Rising Star" of "Da Hood", named "Pop", who just want's to rise above his circumstances and get money and respect and out of his crackwhore mothers house who was aptly named "Theresa". The book was chock full of superficial characters who's only concern was making money by any means including doing drive by's, contract kills, and peddling "Crack". The Sexual encounters where written at a third grade level by a seemingly one deminsional author who irionicly enough was in prison when he wrote this literary masterpiece.

The Author seems to think we all listen to rap becuase he kept plugging random rap songs into the book, while the characters got "Moniez and Hoes".

All in all this "book" if you can call it that, was very repetative, repulsive and needs to be put on "Rotten Tomatoes" list for a golden rasberry for worst book of all time if they ever make a list for literature.

This book was great. It's no accident that every reviewer has given the book 5 stars. It's worth every star, plus some.

Pop was a young, no non-sense kind of guy, who had a crackhead mother that would do anything for her next hit. Being neglected and resented by his mom, led Pop to a life of robbery to survive and feed himself. Fresh is a seasoned hustler who is on the look out for a few new soldiers but is also waiting on his most dependable soldier, Tito, to return home from prison. Tito is a loud and boisterous guy who's not afraid to put his murder game down.
When Fresh sees Pop in action, he recognizes that has a lot of heart and hunger and adds him to his team. After joining up with Fresh, Pop's life changes completely. He has money and access to beautiful women. With much success in the game, Pop sees that there are other things he could do with his life and money.

You got to read this book and experience all the intense action and drama that Pop, Fresh and Tito get into. You will not be disappointed.

Boston George really did his thing with this book right here.I loved this book so much that i read it in one day. Once i started reading i couldn't stop.I was really feeling the character Pop,his character was so real and i think that alot of black young men can really relate to him.Melissa i was one of my favorite characters i just hate that she was put in such a bad situation,but hey blood is thicker than water. Nika i think she really held Pop down 4rm start to finsh...now that's a real chick.Fresh i had mixed feelings about him, he was the guy u hated him sometimes ,but you kind of understood why he handled things the way he did...hey being a boss is hard but somboy has to did.This book is a must read. Looking forward to reading his next book that drops in November "REDRUM" i know it's gonna be crazy good. Street fiction at it's finest!!! Big ups to Boston George*

I bought this book as a gift for my sister. Having just finished reading it, I can only apologize. The story description on the back covers describes the young kid, Pop, as having courage, loyalty and heart. You wonder about that when the the story opens with Pop luring a Chinese food delivery lady to his project building, then knocking her out cold and making off with the food and what little money she had on her.
Another problem I had with this book was there was too much sex, too much violence and too little story. Everytime you turned around, somebody was getting gunned down, beaten down, pistol whipped, burned to a crisp (!!!), nail-gunned to death, etc. It was ridiculous and it left me with little or no sympathy for any of the players, including Pop.

Come on writers get proof readers please... Im so sick and tired of marking up my books, because of all the misspelled and missing words. I enjoyed this book but damn so many little errors. Pop was doing the damn thang for a while, than he came to his senses and realized that Fresh was just a user. But Fresh did feed Pop, when the boy was out there stealing and robbing folks. .. I didnt like Tito from the beginning. It's to bad Pop couldnt see what his girl had accomplished with the after school program. Just think it all started because Pop's Mother wasnt about being a mother at all. That was the sad part about the book. But other than that I really enjoyed the book.

I absolutely loved this book. I read it in one day. I'm always skeptical about new authors but with this book, Boston George proved to me that he is the one of best authors out right now. The story was fast paced and kept my attention the whole way through. I was fascinated with Pop and his rise to the the top. The story was well put together. Im excited about this new author and cant wait for more books from him. Job well done on your 1st book Mr. Boston George.

This author is now on my top 10 list. He has grabbed me by the collar and taken me for a joyride throughout the whole novel. The read is so realistic I felt as if I was a fly on the wall during the books events. The storyline is very lucid and easy to enjoy, there are some characters you will love and some you will detest; but that makes the book even better. You'll be anxious to know what's going to happen next that you'll never put the book down! I want this author to keep up the good work because I'm now a fan!!
