“More Boy Than Girl” by Tony Lindsay was an really good read…it held my attention throughout the entire plot, and it was very difficult for me to put this book down. Not only does the author write a good story line, but he tackles the identity issues by Dai Break Jones[the fact that she is a lesbian and a pimp] in such a way that, as you’re reading, you really don’t notice anything abnormal about the situations at all. Mr. Lindsay actually takes his readers on a ride through Dai Break’s mind…this is a must-read for sure!
Moreover, as I was reading, I found myself comparing Dai Break’s pimp struggle to that of Whoreson Jones, Donald Goines’ main character in Whoreson. Both these characters feel as if being a pimp makes their world, and, without it, they’re nothing. As a result, they do whatever they have to do to hold this status, including, but not limited to, their ugly, ruthless treatment of women.
“More Boy Than Girl” was on-point, and the storyline flowed like honey. However, there were still some unanswered questions at the end.
Nevertheless, readers who enjoy reading street lit, but want a little “twist” in the game will enjoy reading “More Boy Than Girl.”
I give it 4 stars.
