Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For those even broadly familiar with the details of rapper, actor and now author Dogg's troubled past, this book will read as a thinly-veiled memoir. Dogg's teen protagonist, Ulysses Jeffries, lives in the drug-infested Los Angeles neighborhood of Long Beach in the early 1990s, along with his younger brother Bing and their no-nonsense but loving single mother. When she gets religion, the two turn for attention to a local thug named Buddha, who takes Ulysses in as a kind of protégé. "I didn't have a father or a big brother," he says, "so in a strange way, Buddha became both for me. He had the flyest crib in the neighborhood." Soon his mentor gets him selling drugs on the streets, a trade for which Ulysses has quite a gift. The story is rife with cliché: Ulysses learns the price of gangster life the hard way; begins writing lyrics for raps and escapes a tragic fate through the transformative power of music. Dogg is part storyteller, part preacher, and his innate charm and streetwise wit go a long way in compensating for the otherwise pat plot and stale prose of this debut, the first of an announced trilogy.

Format: Paperback
Picked this up at the bargain shelf at a local bookstore for a buck. It was right next to a book that had caught my eye. The other book speaks about growing up in the Chicago projects. I figured, for a dollar, I couldn't go wrong. Glad I went with my judgment. The other book is still here, unread while I tore apart Love Don't Live...

Love Don't Live Here No More reads like a memoir. It was a short, interesting read. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in growing up in the lifestyle that the author speaks of in this biographical novel.

Fans of Snoop Dogg will likely find fault with the fact I only gave this four stars. I felt that for it to receive a full five stars it should have been a bit longer/detailed or sold to the teen audience. It was not quite clear what age group the authors were reaching for.

This book was definitely not what i expected. The only thing that kept my attention was the ending cliffhanger. It was a slow read that was a coming of age story. I was not connected to the characters in any way really which was a downside to my reading this book. I may read the second installment of this series but I am not going to rush to buy it. It was an okay read, not anything special. I definitely commend Snoop for starting to co-write books. However, 50's G-Unit books are much better thus far, I would read them 1st before the Doggy Tales' installments.

The book is quite interesting and quick reading. I wonder if the youth of the hip-hop generation will read the book and wonder if this the route they really want to go. There will always be struggles in life which is displayed in the story but it is what you do about it. Do you move in a positive mode or let the situation keep you down and move in negative mode?

I am looking forward to reading more by Snoop Dogg& David E. Talbert.

This book was a quick read, you learn about Ulysses's life living poor with his mother and borther in Long Beach, California. Ulysses looks up to a local pusher and starts selling drugs at and young age. He watches his mother struggle just to get by, He wants to help but don't know how, he has dream of being a rapper but must first learn how to survive. This is Vol. 1 of the Doggy Tales so I must know what will be next.
