My Review of The Urban Boys:
I really held out some high hopes for this book. It sounded amazing! However, I had a really hard time getting into the storyline. There were long dragging scenes, there were areas that really didn’t give credence into what was happening, and just added a word count to the book.
I also didn’t think the scenes around the senses, the ones being developed by the group, were really enough. That could have been given much more attention.
I enjoyed bits and pieces of the book, as there were areas that really picked up, the characters really meshed, and the story seemed to flow. It was really the chunks that felt almost forced, the over descriptive pieces, and the lack of development in areas that really drew my enjoyment in the book down.
As an overall rating of this book, I would give this a 2.5/5
