5.0 out of 5 stars inside the crips 22 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
You have to read this. Both brave and frightening. it will stay with you. shows a life so tragic and with a message of great hope. intelligent and thought provoking and playing down the sensationalistic nature of the content. does not glorify the violence, but explains how it becomes real and part of life, but proves how someone dealt a bad hand can rise above it all if so minded. fantastic book. he should be commended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read. 28 Aug 2011
By I love New York VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just spent the last week reading this book and it's a definite 5 star read.

I've long been fascinated by the bloods and crips war that rages in much of the united states especially in South Central Los Angeles. I had always passed it off as mindless violence, however while I still think this I understand more to the mentality of those who live the life and what goes on in their minds when they are doing what they do.

It's easy to pity the protagonist at the start and then dislike him as the book continues before he sees the light and you begin to feel for him once again and the hand that life handed him.

A worthwhile read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inside the crips Colton Simpson 6 April 2013
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book and it was deeper than I expected. He spent a lot of time in prison but it never got boring. I was a little gutted when it ended due to how the story ends. I have been trying to find out more since reading the book. I had been reading about UK football violence so this made a fresh change! What a crazy world we live in
