Book Description

Back when he was a tagger, he called himself Domez, but that was a lifetime ago. Now Domez is a photographer for hire, paying his way with jobs he hates... until he meets Seb14.

Seb is a young tagger, and a member of the graffiti activist group known as the Four Horsemen. Along with her enigmatic leader, Fiver, they pull Domez back into the graffiti lifestyle, throwing up posters and running from the police in their quest to bring down the corporations that have taken over their lives and their dreams. But the Horsemen are operating without a plan and without a clue. Can they really change the world, or will they tear themselves - and Domez - apart?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to see your world from another person's view. August 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was in the mood to see the world from the view of someone I would never be, and this story supplied that perfectly. I could sit behind the skin of a man with a desire I have never had and understand it perfectly. A good experience to be had by all who want to know what it's like to be on the cusp of something great, watching it unfold before you.

Read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hard Sell for an Easy Buy February 28, 2013

An interesting look at the way people deconstruct advertising and the message it sends to people. There is a story that condemns capitalist excess, but realizes it is a reality and accepts that as do the characters. The important part of the story is the relationship between Seb14 and Domez, as well as how the other Four Horsemen fit together. There are a lot of nice elements of photography and graffiti in the story, and the way things unfold is delightful and a fun experience to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth the money!!!!! February 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
At first, i tried the sample. I have read the Banksy books, and i decided to read this. I recemend it. I'm really into graffiti, and i think the artists who create it have talent. I also love that they are so brave. I really think they should be respected, because they really do have true talent. Just read the sample- it's totally worth the payment.
